Two punters just jumped in the ring during commercial apparently!

 

It was after the show.

 

Security was rubbish, even Justin Roberts jumped in to get them. I heard someone say 'nothing will happen to them'

 

Arrest, maybe jail, banned from Arena, maybe banned from WWE. Was it worth it? Stupid cocks.

Just back from Raw, not a bad show this year.

 

The yes chant is just ott and needs to go, a bit like Tensai who is just a waste of space, no doubt roster cuts will start on the return to the states and he needs to join them.

 

One other thing was the evening was shorter than Daniel Bryan.

Fancam of ring invasion.

 

As has been said with all the security it was left to Justin Roberts to show a bit of nouse. I honestly think these tossers thought they were going to get away with it. Where's Savage when you need him?

My thoughts on the show, spoilered...

Really happy we got to see Dean Ambrose in the dark match, defeating A-Ry. Been following him closely in FCW and he's a future star.

 

Superstars matches were Eve vs Kelly and Swagger vs Truth. Swagger/Truth was a fun match, crowd really into Truth.

 

WWE Title match was fun. Punk is crazy over in England atm. I liked the finish as well. The promo with Jericho on the Tron was good as well. Jericho showed footage of Punk going into a pub, Punk said he just went there to meet a friend for fish and chips. Then the crowd went into a loud 'Fish And Chips!' chant. Legendary, hope that comes out on the show.

 

Wasn't surprised to see Lesnar no-show, but the video promo of the feud was decent.

 

Santino/Otunga for the US Title was meh. Santino is popular but I was pulling for Otunga, I've been loving him recently.

 

Shame we got two non-matches in Kane/Ryder and Brodus/Dolph. I don't think Kane/Ryder even started, and the other one went about 30 seconds before interference ruled it a no contest. Brodus was not as over as I thought he was gonna be, I was marking out though

 

Cena got the usual mixed reaction, probably about 60/40 in favour of the haters though. His promo was decent enough.

 

Show and Khali vs Epico and Primo was an odd match. Didn't seem to serve a purpose and I didn't like that the tag champs got squashed. And because I was up in the nosebleeds, I couldn't make out who the guy standing on the stage during the match was. I assume it was Cody, but I couldn't really see.

 

Daniel Bryan was crazy over. So many YES! chants throughout the night, and the pop he got during his backstage bit with Kofi was one of the loudest I've heard at a live event. I laughed hard when he said he'd renamed his finisher to the 'Yes Lock'! Their match was very fun as well. I dread to think how many times I have shouted the word 'YES!' tonight

 

Cena/Tensai did not really hold my attention. It just seemed to plod along. Surprised Tensai won though, this shows that he's gonna get a big push. I expect him to be in the WWE Title picture once Punk has finished with Jericho, as I think Cena/Lesnar will go a rematch after Extreme Rules.

 

Post-show dark match was Punk/Jericho for the title, although that fell apart after about 2 mins, and random people ran in, including Bryan, Sheamus, Show, Cody, Del Rio, and Orton. It ended with a finisher-fest and Sheamus, Show and Orton standing tall to send the crowd home happy.

 

This show was a lot more fun than last years April Raw taping. The crowd really can make all the difference to a show.

Tensai is a breath of fresh air for me, they really wont fire him after a month on tv. The Yes!Yes!Yes chant is superb, i dont know if you realised but there wasn't a single 'WHAT?' chant all night, hasn't been for a couple shows now. Now THAT was ott. Bryan is the most over act with the crowd right now so the Yes! thing will last until the next single word gets popular.

 

Feel bad for Ryder. I wont say what happens but the way he's getting booked i can see him getting the boot soon but then he does sell merch so maybe he'll get another push soon.

 

Was a good enough Raw. Although i wasn't sure why Big Johnny got a 'Who Are Ya' chant. He has been on tv a while now.

 

Dark match was really short then suddenly just everyone they thought the crowd wanted to see ran out. Mainly smackdown stars but im guessing thats just to make sure fans saw everyone. Wish i had tickets for tomorrow just to shout Yes! some more. But the O2 is so expensive, couldn't do that 2 nights in a row.

Was a fantastic show overall! 'Fish and Chips' was a great moment :)

 

Shame about the two idiots who jumped in at the end, never saw it but I left the arena during Roberts half-ending speech thinking WTF?! Then as i was leaving the o2 they escorted one of the douchebags out of the arena. Literally that is ALL they did!

We were in the back row on floor level and remained standing at points because the kids in front weren't sitting down. The rather crap security guard told us to be seated and brushed off any requests by the woman next to me to get the aforementioned children to do likewise. Security's lack of sense aside, it was a decent night.

Dean Ambrose was awesome. Was a nice surprise to see him in a dark match, and he didn't disappoint.

 

CM Punk attacking Jericho from behind in the last dark match was a bit woeful :(
