I would imagine that if it were dead during the match, it was because of a lot of nail biting going on. I remember the place erupted during the final moments.

Im sure the wrestling purist would have frowned on this, but I thought the match was good. It wasn't great as far as classic wrestling goes, but it's not always about simply match quality. What would grab the most attention for WWE? Would it be a 30-60 minute technical masterpiece with dozens of reversals and counter-holds, or would it be two of the biggest stars going out there for 15-20 minutes with the crowd going nuts?

Atmosphere was great, don't know what you're expecting...And the exact same fans who were at WM, were at Raw the next night, and listen to how that crowd was.

Open roof means alot less sound you can catch on camera and stuff. When you watch a football or baseball game, how often do you hear real loud crowds? I'm sure it's way less than a basketball or hockey game.

I remember during the WM video(I think this one was like WM9 OR something?), they showed footage of Mr.McMahon giving HBK some pointers on the crowd and the stadium, cause all the sound would be projecting upwards, and with no roof, it'll sound way diff in that stadium.

whoever says that this match had great atmosphere doesn't know good crowds ....

But yes open roof does play a factor

in the beginning, and some parts in the middle, they were hot. but it was a very slowly paced match and so they weren't going crazy the whole time, cant really expect them to during headlocks and bearhugs, can you? lol.

But the ending where Rock got the pin was freaking amazing. One of the biggest pops in history.

Rock injuring his hamstring didn't help, but fans might of been slightly disappointed because it didn't even end up being the best match of that show, much less of all time like it kinda got billed that it would be. Undertaker has had that title for the last 4 years and he'll probably make it 5 for 5 regardless who he fights at WM 29. Probably Lesnar and not The Rock since The Rock is getting a title shot at WM and will likely win the belt. He won't face Taker for the belt at WM 29.

Because Undertaker, Shawn Michaels and Triple H made the rest of the show look like cheap crap. They are too good.

Wait, what?

The atmosphere/crowd was freakin' awesome. I have the bias of being there live, but even on TV, it sounded great. IIRC, the crowd fro WM/Raw was probably the biggest talking point coming out of WM weekend.

What are you talking about? The atmosphere was great. They were a bit dead mid-match but that's because of restholds like the Bearhug and the slow pace. They were always full of life when something exciting happened. The match where they were truly dead was Jericho/Punk. There they truly fell asleep because of the HIAC match and only made some noise during the submission exchanges in the end.

I dont remember the crowd being dead for that match. I think it may have been muffled because of the open air arena.

Or maybe the crowd was dead. I dont remember.
