Re: RAW should never come back to Atlanta
I was there. The crowd was really hot during some points, and really DEAD during others. It was white hot during the Punk/Jericho match, Brock/Miz, and the Shield confrontation at the end. They were dead at all other points. It also doesn't help that they show 5000 recaps during the show, really bores people to death, live. I do my best to get chants started and to keep them going, but it's hard to get everyone involved down there for some reason. Also, there were A LOT of kids in the audience that seemed to be sleeping through the show.
ATL is NOT a bad crowd town, as seen during the WCW days. Also anyone who's ever been to a Falcons game or to a Hawks playoff game, will tell you how the atmosphere is. Philips Arena is always LOUD during Hawks playoffs runs.
A lot of people want to cheer Punk/Brock, etc. but they know they aren't supposed to, so they just stay silent. All I can say is, I tried!
