After watching tonight's "Old School" RAW the crowd was so boring & dead. I mean people barely even stand from there seats anymore. What the hell happened to that hardcore crowd that used to go crazy & actually got into. I mean even guys like Orton & Cena barely got a response tonight. Hershey, PA. sucks in terms of a live crowd.

The crowd looked like parents that were forcefully dragged there by their kids an really had no interest at all in what was going on in the ring. Hell they even did a close up on the crowd an it looked like one of the women in attendance was taking a nap... DURING PIPERS PIT!

the crowds these days are faggots. they want to be funny and chant dumb things to get the wrestlers mad. i swear, i don't know why people pay so much money not to have a good time. Tickets for WWE shows cost alot so if it was me, i'll be screaming my ass off all segment long!

Say goodbye to WWTNA IS ALIVE once again. I think after that post he might be dead AGAIN. As for the crowd it was OK, but in no way did it take away the awesomeness of this RAW. I'm pissed I didn't go to this Raw, I would have marked out a few times especially when I heard JR's music hit, I would have spit out my beer and did a dance.;)

I get what you're saying. I was actually surprised at many how many Legends and "Old School" themes and ideas were used.

Anyway, it's a different crowd now dude. All the changes to PG have drawn the kids more to WWE. With that being said the crowd has to be filled with kids who don't know who these people are plus the parents that were dragged to the event were probably not a fan of wrestling back in their day.

With all the changes they've made it's really created a whole new fanbase for the WWE, kids who do not know the past of WWE.

You keep calling people "faggots" and we'll see how much truth there is to this silly assertion.

It's 2010, man. The days of accepted ignorance and redneckery are over.

the crowd was pretty good in 2006, dx.. ecw.. etc... it started to die on 2007 when younger fans took over... btw WWE didn't go PG in 2007, WWE went PG in mid 2008

Dude, just by what you said you practically just stated that WWE is erasing it's past. Truth be told though, WWE has tried this kid thing in the past & they had to change in due time. Making the kids the overall fanbase will die in time. The past repeats itself. WWE ratings are low, Wrestlemania tickets are selling slower then ever, there are fewer sellouts & the list goes on. WWE will make changes again if things don't improve. Kids don't stick with things long.

Yeah kids suck as a demographic. They should have stayed with the 18-35 demo they had thats where the money is at. I mean ticket sales money not merch.

I think I can answer this question. It aint the kids with the parents, they have been around in droves forever (yes even during the attitude era), it's us mostly. Members of the IWC for the most part will go to the shows and expect to be disappointed because of their cynical nature, and therefor will not have a good time at the event and be silent. Think about it, it was always OUR demographic that is supposed to be going nuts at the events, you can't put that type of responsibility on the kids because they have their parents to deal with telling them to not make a scene. It's on us to be more involved, more creative, and help get the energy of the crowd up...for everyone.

To be fair - today's midcard (and even upper card) are dreadful, compared to say.. 12 years ago. Every midcarder back then got a huge reaction... anyone remember the insane rain of boos that came down every time Big Bossman entered the ring? Or everyoned singing along to Road Dogg's "Oh, you didn't know!?" song...

you can't get hear how loud the crowd really is because wwe uses equipment that diminishes the crowd noise in order for us to hear the announcers and superstars better
