I just got back from Raw in Pittsburgh, and was extremely pleased with the show.
The first major “Yes” chant was as a result of them opening the doors.
I always feel the fans are just as entertaining as the show. Among them was a guy with Ultimate Warrior face paint in a Warrior shirt and two guys dressed like Brodus Clay, who were with a woman who badly reeked of marijuana.
In a dark match, Dean Ambrose pinned Zack Ryder.
Ryder got a good pop. It was a typical Ryder match with him nearly picking up the win, until Dean reversed the Ruff Ryder and picked up the win with a pretty aggressive DDT.
In a match taped for Superstars, Heath Slater pinned Alex Riley.
There’s really not much to say about this match. It was about 75% Slater on offense. He won with that face plant thing that AJ Styles used to do.
In another match taped for Superstars, Lord Tensai pinned Tyson Kidd.
Tyson got in some good offense, most of which was no sold by Tensai. Tensai got the win with his claw hold.
