WWE RAW HOLT REPORT
OCTOBER 16, 2017
PORTLAND, OR.
REPORT BY NIC H. AND CAMRON SALSBERRY, WKPWP CORRESPONDENT

-Attendance Notes: 85-90 percent of available seats appeared to be filled. Other than those blocked off, and quite a few behind the hard camera from the ring to the stage, the seats were almost all full.

TAPED FOR WWE MAIN EVENT TV

(1) Rhyno beat Scott Dawson. Rhyno got a huge pop and a “Rhino” chant. Fans were disappointed he won with the Spinebuster rather than his signature Gore (which is perhaps too close to Roman Reigns’s spear?).

(2) Mustafa Ali beat Drew Gulak with a 450 splash.

RAW IN-PERSON NOTES

-Booker T received a huge pop when he came out to the broadcast table before Raw began.

-Roman Reigns got 60/40 cheers to boos, but when he wasn’t with The Shield he was always booed by a large portion of the audience, whereas when he was with The Shield, the group got cheered regardless of Reigns being there.

-Dean Ambrose was probably the most popular wrestler, with Seth Rollins right behind him.


-The crowd was buzzing for the return of Kane, but they weren’t necessarily cheering for Kane against Reigns, nor booing Kane for beating down Reigns. It was more of a “big star returning / surprise” buzz from the crowd.

-The advertised dark match (non-televised, publicized in ads to sell tickets) was Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman in a street fight. It was simply changed to a cage match.

  1. Reigns was booed pretty heavily even when with the shield. Unless they decided to sweeten the boos on tv, which would be odd.
