I really don't like that match. I heard nothing but good things about it on here and other boards then I watched it a few weeks ago and was disappointed beyond words. I think the problem is the completely DEAD crowd. What a disappointment for Madison Square Garden. I think they were even chanting "Boring" when Foley/HHH were brawling by the alleyway-looking entrance ramp. The cell match is a million times better. A crowd really affects hardcore matches IMO. If there aren't some "Holy shit!" chants when someone gets their face planted into a bunch of tacks, then it really ruins the shock value.
And yes, that's the spot I was talking about. Lawler even tries to cover up for the "boring" chants by saying they're chanting "Foley" (which they did later on but at a faster pace compared to "Booooooooooring"). I also watched the Rumble match earlier this week and the crowd was equally silent for most of it, until The Rock's arrival brought some life into them.
I'm pretty sure they were chanting "Foley."
Also 'holy shit' can go fuck itself. cheer the face and boo the heel, don't pop for every big move just because it's a big move. They wanted Foley to win so there'd be no reason for them to chant something asinine when he's about to get 3-counted. And honestly, it was a surprisingly tame and pro-babyface crowd for New York.
