    This is a series of live pictures of RAW last week. As it happened, throughout the three hour program. You can see Tensai, Ryback and other wrestlers in the photo so this is not prior to the event but during it. You can also see that a good third of it was empty. Explains the funky camera angles lately. Also, notice the black tarp. Tarping RAW like it is a podunk Smackdown. Shameful.

    I'll only agree to that when they start piping chants through the sound systems. A friend of mine went to Nitro during the down time and told me that the Goldberg chants were 100% through the sound system. Not one person in the crowd was saying anything.

    At the beginning of the run they did. When I was at the Great American Bash in 99 (I think) Goldberg was massively over.

    Well, Smackdown has the worst piped in pops and canned heat in history.

    Same pop for like 7 years. Sounds like a hair dryer.

    WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    That's fucking embarrassing. I knew about the PA system chants, but I had no idea it was that prevalent.

    Its a bit different on a taped show IMO.
    Its far worse to have it through a PA live

    Well, obviously piping in stuff live would be bad but the 3 hour RAW kills people and there are so many silent parts.
