Raw Attendance, What You Didn’t See, DirecTV/WWE Update, Ultimate Warrior Tribute

Raw Attendance

The announced attendance for this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw from Birmingham, Alabama was 12,172. The show was a legitimate sellout.

What You Didn’t See

After this week’s episode of Raw went off the air, John Cena beat Bray Wyatt in a dark match main event via disqualification after interference from The Wyatt Family.

DirecTV/WWE Update

I’ve spoken with multiple DirecTV customer support representatives that have told me they have not dropped WWE pay-per-view events. I’m aware there are rumors to the contrary, however, as a customer, I’ve called [more than once] and been told they are still carrying them and will notify if there is any further update. Take that for what you will as Dish told me they would be carrying Elimination Chamber, which of course they did not. The difference here, however, is that I am a DirecTV customer.

Raw is Warrior

Raw opened with a great Ultimate Warrior tribute that saw everyone (including Vince McMahon) on the stage followed by a 10-bell salute. I saw Cody Rhodes get emotional and will admit I was moved by it, especially after a clip of Warrior with one of his daughters at the Hall of Fame induction ceremony was shown.

    You sure wouldn’t know that was anywhere near that number in attendance last night. What an awful crowd. I’m not saying ‘Raw’ was a homerun show but it was significantly better than the response the crowd gave it. Whereas last weeks Raw was made 10X better because of the crowd, this week was weakened by the crowd.

    yeah, its the post wrestlemania raw effect. The come down is pretty harsh, specially with partly dead crowds.

  • Splat

    The fact that the hottest guy on the roster Daniel Bryan wasn’t there didn’t help the crowd any. That said he deserved a night off.

      He’s on his honeymoon. He got married on last Thursday.
