X-Pac opens today’s show speaking about his experience at RAW25. He says he had a great time but he’s still tired from all the flying. He was so excited and riding a high after appearing on RAW and he flew out of New York at 7 AM the next morning, so he didn’t really sleep at all prior to catching his flight.
He gives WWE credit for trying to broadcast live from two different buildings, but there’s no denying that this was was going to be a difficult feat from the beginning. There was also so much hype and promotion for this show that it was going to be hard for it to live up to the expectations. He thought WWE delivered in terms of nostalgia.
X-Pac informs that The Miz and Ric Flair were not originally booked to appear at The Manhattan Center. They were last minute additions in order to give the fans at Manhattan Center more bang for their buck.
X-Pac has heard some criticism of the show, specifically WWE’s inability to take advantage of the additional viewers in order to hype the current product and the Royal Rumble. He can understand these frustrations, but he points out that it’s tough to fit all of the legends on the same show in which you’re trying to hype a major PPV.
