Raw house show photos

Discussion in 'General WWE' started by GrammarNazi82, Feb 6, 2013.

  1. Most on here have heard me mention my one real life wrestling-fan friend. Anyway, we went to the Raw house show (Pre-Game Pandemonium) Sunday afternoon. This was the second house show we went to after having gone to one in June 2012. We had floor seats both times, but this time we had second row seats which were awesome. In some ways I liked the first show we attended more, but this one was also a good show. We've enjoyed both our house show experiences and keep saying we'll have to go to others they have in our area whenever they come up. :)

    There was a really good crowd, especially considering it was Super Bowl Sunday. Of course, there were several more Cena fans than I would have liked, but oh well. I think we were among the very few who were on the "Cena sucks." side of things, along with the cool guy sitting next to us. Several of the wrestlers got mic time, and once again we got to see a "new" face. (Last June we got to see Seth Rollins in singles action.) This time we got to see Conor O'Brian (half of the tag team Ascension from NXT), which was cool. He had a little mic time before starting his match with Ryder and got a pretty good heel reaction. We got to see just how beat to hell the MITB briefcase is, and how hairy Antonio's legs and ass are. Oh, and The Shield entered through the audience right by our section. :) I was sitting in seat 9, so I was that many seats away from them as they entered alongside our section, which was very cool. They got a good reaction. Plus, it was cool to see Rollins get a reaction this time when back in June the crowd reaction indicated he was pretty much unknown. Also, when Punk came out looking all pissed, he did pretty much the same thing we would see him do on TV Monday night (but was one of those, "Hey cool, we got to see that last night." type things), in that he pulled Justin Roberts into the ring and had him re-announce him as the people's champion. Also, there was a family sitting right in front of me, and when Daniel Bryan came around he ripped up the child's "Yes!" sign, but then later he came back, took off his shirt, and handed it to one of the children in their family, so that was really cool. :) Talk about being close to the action. Our section was next to the steps leading up to the ring.

    Anyway, going to share some photos from each of the matches in order, as well as some miscellaneous photos. I'll just group them in individual posts by match to keep them better organized so people can look at what they want to. Just wanted to share. :)

    After losing the match, while Tensai was distracted Riley untied his own shoe, then got the mic to inform everyone his shoe was untied during the match and had them restart the match.

    Tensai quickly beat him again. In addition to doing a few dance moves in the ring, as Tensai was leaving he grabbed this event staff woman and danced with her briefly before exiting.

    Riley on the mat, but you can also see where Justin Roberts and the "bell guy" were sitting in front of us.
     
  5. Kaitlyn vs. Tamina

    Tried to get a few decent shots for you guys. :p

  7. Grammar deserves +million rep for the Kaitlyn ass shot alone. Awesome stuff.

    Glad you enjoyed it. I am incredibly envious at the fact you were so close to The Shield and got to listen to an Alex Riley promo.

  8. Team Hell No vs. The Shield

    I thought I would share a bunch of photos from this match. There are notes under a few of the photos. Rollins and Reigns were in a tag team match against Team Hell No, with Ambrose at ringside.

    (He approved of this "No" sign.)

    (But he disapproved of the "Yes" sign in front of me.)

    (After the match was over, DB and Kane got into a discussion about how they thought each other should apologize to the other for tossing them out at the Royal Rumble.)

    [​IMG]
    (After some back and forth discussion and no apologies, it got down to hug time! A few people in the audience started hugging to encourage them, too.)

    [​IMG]
    (Bryan went to the corner and sulked before going ahead and awkwardly going in for a hug with Kane.)

  10. :haha: Thank you, thank you. I'll be awaiting my rep. ;) I took a ton of photos but tried to pick some of the better shots to post. Pretty much all the shots I took during the divas match was solely for the purpose of sharing here. lol Oh, I got one of AJ's back, too.

    Thanks. :obama: I don't want to rub it in with anyone, but it really was awesome, and I loved being so close to The Shield. My friend FINALLY saw the attraction factor to Ambrose when he kept looking/acting predatory outside the ring. lol She had always thought Reigns was more attractive, but now not so much. Just glad I can share some photos and parts of my experience with everyone here. :)

  12. Cesaro vs. The Miz

    I like Cesaro, and between mic time and the match itself, there were plenty of photo ops, so got some good shots. The last two are out of order because they're from my friend's camera, and I'm not going to bother with reorganizing them.

  13. Antonio is a man's man. :obama:
     
  14. Wow looks like you had amazing seats and were involved in a good show. Great pics!
     
  15. AJ Lee .... Figured I might as well post this one by itself. :pity:

  16. Indeed. :otunga:

    Thanks!! :) It really was a very good show, and the crowd was great, aside from all the Cena marks. Can hardly wait till we get to go to another one. The atmosphere alone makes it worth it.
     
  17. Main event: Punk & Ziggler (with AJ Lee and Big E) vs. Ryback & Cena

    Several several photos, and they'll be out of order since some were on my camera up until the battery started dying, then the others are from my phone and my friend's camera.

  18. More from the main event. I swear through most of the match it seemed as if Cena was intentionally trying to get in our way or stick his ass out towards our faces. Ugh. That's shown more so on photos from my phone where I didn't try to zoom in much, which would have cropped him out of the shots (which is what I did for most of the ones from my camera).

  19. Oh yeah, I forgot the handful of miscellaneous photos....

    My boobs made it to the "big screen." :yay: I took and tweeted an up-close photo of my shirt, and it was one of the tweeted photos they displayed in a loop / slideshow on the two big screens next to the wrestlers' entrance ramp.

    Anyway, below is that photo, as well as a photo of the mini-poster at the arena entrance, the view of the ring from our seats, the steps as seen from our seats and Justin Roberts.
