Yesterday, the WWE had it’s annual “The Day After Wrestlemania” on Monday Night Raw. But before I begin, I have to give a shout out to the folks who attended the IZOD center in New Jersey. Man, everybody is straight talking about you! Lord have mercy! Now if anyone doesn’t know what I’m talking about, Monday Night Raw had the folks chanting names from Michael Cole, JBL, Jerry Lawler, even ECW and the late Macho Man Randy Savage. (i.e. RAN-DY SAV-AGE! then clapping 5 times) Oh check this out, I know that crowds cheer the good guys and boo the bad folks, but this crowd was cheering the villains like Dolph Ziggler, Team Rhodes Scholars (that’s Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow) and even though he’s a becoming a crowd favorite, Ryback and his one liner quote of “FEED ME MORE!” was in unison. And by the way, the folks even were humming the music of new WWE Superstar Fandango. Now hold up, he’s a heel! Why would they hum his music? Having fun I guess. What amazes me that the wrestling crowds of now might not be your father’s or grandfather’s wrestling days, but these days in the post Monday Night Wars, can go either for the hero or the villain Plus also the chants do carry to other venues in various ways. Either it’s for a candidate, or a local team that wants to dominate.
Now I know that this is a bit much, but don’t be too surprised if you see this every Monday Night. Whenever a game or event happens. We know. Even World Star Hip Hop is talking about this.

Note to the WWE: Hire a DJ for Raw or Smackdown. Back in the WCW days, they had Philly’s DJ Ran pumping up the crowd during the Monday Night Wars, in which we know that the WWE won. Have that also for Wrestlemania XXX, along with the band that plays on Bourbon Street, you guys know the bands like the one you see on Treme. Get Wendell Pierce part of festivities. He plays on Treme also. Just a thought.
And for who are real Wrestling Fans, you all better bring that energy and top what happened in Jersey. Nothing against New Jersey, but can another city top this? Can the BMO Harris Bradley Center, Miller Park, Camp Randall, Lambeau Field or any other venue top this? Better get started! Just like when last year when everyone was saying YES! just like Daniel Bryan.
