Anyone watch (or attend) last night's show? Hearing brutal reviews.

Buddy of mine got free tickets and he hated it.

The in-ring wasn't bad at all, but they overhyped a couple of angles that ended up killing the crowd-they made a big deal about Mysterio having an open challenge at the top of the hour, and it turned out to just be Lashley, who squashed him. And they also hyped Shane picking Roman's tag partner the whole show, ended up picking an old janitor dude. Then the janitor comes out in a mask, hits several highspots, but ends up getting pinned clean by McIntyre. He then unmasks to reveal it was really Cedric Alexander. Would have been a great angle if he had pinned Shane or something, but why bother unmasking him after he got his ass kicked fair and square? Would have been better to keep the mask on him and just have the fans think the unknown janitor got beat up.

Poorly paced show with those two angles basically turning the live fans off of it.
