Another Live Report From Last Night’s WWE TLC PPV

From the moment I arrived at the arena there were loud “Cena sucks” chants and pro Ziggler and Daniel Bryan chants.

The pre-show dark match was JTG beating David Otunga. JTG came out in Brooklyn Nets style ring gear. A short match with JTG getting a good reaction from the home crowd.

The crowd felt heelish the whole show to the point of annoyance. Some people were cheering 3MB, though my section seemed quiet until Daniel Bryan and The Shield turned up. Ryback felt like a mixed response and copped abuse through the match.

Obviously, they were pro Dolph Ziggler during his match. They also cheered C.M. Punk before and after his promo.

The crowd in my section only got on their feet for Bryan, The Shield, Ziggler, and John Cena. Interesting crowd in the sense that full grown men were some of the largest Cena fans and an eight year-old kid in our section was the leader of the Ziggler chants.

After the show, Cena did a short speech about win, lose or draw, from Vince down they were thankful to the Brooklyn crowd for turning up and selling out the building (it was a legit sellout to the top of the arena from my point of view). He said they’d be mixing it up between MSG and Brooklyn but they were thankful for the fans here.

Ultimately, the crowd didn’t seem to care about the Brooklyn pandering by Cena or anyone during the show.

Great show live. It is different from having attended house shows to seeing a crowd care about a result like they did with Cena vs. Ziggler. The arena did feel a little muted compared to some shows I’ve seen, but that might be the arena.
