Re: Rooting for heels in the AE
The whole rooting for people to win/lose was less pronounced during the AA. It was an older smarter fan base, and they really enjoyed the characters and performers, and just went nuts for everything. It was actually kind of like ecw in that way, where the guys who were good often got cheered regardless, because people enjoyed their work. Everyone got cheered- Taker, Austin, Rock, Foley, HHH, jericho, Angle whether they were heel or face. Pretty much the McMahons took most off the boos and real hate from the fans.
