While the crowd’s antics during the Battle Royal are now well known, we should also give credit to the fans who were in attendance for their reaction to the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match.
Unsurprisingly, it's been hard for WWE to get people interested in what seems like the 5,245th John Cena vs. Randy Orton bout on pay-per-view. And the folks at the Consol Energy Arena were not shy about proclaiming their dismay over this tired feud and the mediocre action in the ring.
Throughout the match, the Pittsburgh crowd came up with an assortment of chants. The dreaded “Boring!” chant was heard several times. As was “This is awful!” “Daniel Bryan!” was another one. The fans even started yelling “We want Divas!” at one point. Orton didn't even try to hide his anger. Poor Cena looked visibly deflated, too.
Jerry Lawler's claim on commentary that the crowd was merely trying to “distract” Orton was hilarious. Amusingly, the audience even started yelling “Thank you!” once the Wyatt Family ran in to attack Cena.
Credit to the fans—they entertained themselves. They also made what should have been a forgettable match actually very memorable—even if it was for all the wrong reasons.
