SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
RAW HOLT REPORT (Happenings Off Live TV)
OCTOBER 30, 2017
REPORT BY KEVIN R., PWTORCH CORRESPONDENT
MAIN EVENT TAPING
(1) Jason Jordan beat Curt Hawkins
(2) Cedric Alexander beat Tony Nese
-When advertising the event to sell tickets, they hyped a main event of Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman in a Baltimore Street Fight, which understandably didn’t occur. They also advertised The Bar vs. Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins, which did not take place and no explanation was offered. I wasn’t bothered by it, though. I saw everyone I wanted to see and I was ready to go after Braun Strowman gave Curtis Axel a running powerslam through the announce table. That was the end of the show.
-There was a “C.M. Punk” chant for about five seconds or so during the Alexa Bliss vs. Mickie James main event. Then there were boos to drown out the chant.
-I was disappointed Daniel Bryan was in the arena but didn’t appear in front of fans.
-For me, the highlight of the show was seeing Stephanie McMahon return because everyone was shocked by that.
-No one understood what was going on in the Halloween tag match and didn’t really react.
-I sat near the entrance stage and paid $100 with fees via resale. It was definitely worth it.
-The hard camera side, it wasn’t close to full. The upper deck behind the hard camera was tapped off.
