nothing new. at this point i would wager WWe pipes in audio in more segments than they don't.
Why? Because they didn't cheer for who WWE wanted them to cheer for? That's why we have these boring and overly long title reigns like Roman and Bianca.That Jacksonville crowd was awful, I would have tried to do something as well. It was a good show but that crowd was ass.
As I’ve previously stated about Dominick Mysterio, the noise manipulation and piped in noise is obvious, especially if you observe the audience in the background, which is where the noise would naturally come from. When the front row looks half asleep, it is completely obvious to a reasonable person that they are not cheering.Fightful Select has confirmed that WWE heavily piped in audio during Brock Lesnar's segment with Cody Rhodes on "WWE Raw," and it wasn't just people online that didn't think it was necessary.
Viewers at home were subjected to a chorus of boos being piped in which ended up becoming so distracting that the promo Lesnar was cutting became hard to hear. However, this didn't appear to be how the live crowd was reacting, as can be seen in the below clip with the fans visible on camera. WWE has been piping in audio recently in an attempt to seemingly add more drama and story to storylines and matches, but this detracted from the segment even more, making the reaction feel even faker.
The piped-in noise was so over the top that many fans took to social media to mention it. The boos were constant throughout the entire segment which was an instant red flag to them being piped in and there are people within WWE that echoed their sentiment that fake crowd noise wasn't necessary.
Yeah they already messed up and muted one of their mics earlier in that same show so I figured Brock was yelling because no one could hear him lolSame lmfaooo pretty sad.
