WWE Supershow June 18, 2011: How the Mighty Force Is Falling Fast

On April 30, 2011, I posted an article previewing my impending trip to the Meadowlands a month and a half from then, to see WWE Supershow.  The stars of Raw and SmackDown would be under one roof and the action was looking to be killer.

Before joining my voice to the thousands online that form the internet wrestling community, I've been to Supershows before and tons of live televised and non-televised events—even one PPV, No Mercy 2004, which featured a number of crucial moments for stars of today such as John Cena winning the U.S. Title from Booker T in the last of their Best Of 5 series, and Kurt Angle putting Big Show even further over than he already was.

In my previous article, I asked the question whether many of the fans in attendance would be casual fans or IWC fans.  Whether the fans in attendance would be the types who don't look at internet dirt sheets or read behind-the-scenes accounts of backstage politics and just enjoy the product for what it is, or whether they were the types who take all those things seriously, sometimes to cynical and overly critical levels.

Turns out that not only did most of them act like casual fans, but my fiancee and I were actually lucky enough to be at the front of a lower level section with barely any people.  So we could sit comfortably, our view was largely unobstructed and we had a great time.

Enduring such a lack of bothersome annoyances at this show, along with getting there exorbitantly early, I was able to focus my new-found IWC wisdom and learn quite a bit more about the current situation WWE finds itself in than I originally planned.  As the good pseudo-reporter I am, I took furious notes on my android-powered smartphone.

Some things I will be sharing merely corroborate what you may already know, while other things may come as far more of a shock.
