WWE’s Plans For RAW In Chicago

Posted by Matt Boone February 13, 2014 8 Comments

WWE has begun looking ahead to the March 3rd RAW show in Chicago, Illinois, the hometown of CM Punk. There is said to be a considerable amount of concern within the company as to how the crowd will react at that show. With both Hulk Hogan and The Undertaker returning to RAW the week prior in Green Bay, there is some talk of bringing those two into the Chicago RAW as well, as a way to combat the Punk chants.

Despite the concern, there is said to be less than originally feared after Monday’s show in Los Angeles. Since the chants haven’t been too passionate or long-lasting, especially at the L.A. show, WWE feels that it may not be a situation that gets out of control like the recent Daniel Bryan hijacking fiasco.

Regarding the L.A. RAW, WWE feared fans would hijack the Randy Orton vs. John Cena main event, so they had Daniel Bryan go out twice. The idea was to bring Bryan out early, and again before the main event, as to let the fans get the chanting out of their system before the main event began.

      wwe is stupid to think that there wont be cm punk chants in Chicago based on the fact that the LA crowd barely chanted cm punk LA crowd are full of celebrities so obviously there wont be a lot of cm punk chants as for them bringing undertaker and hogan that will only stop the chants for that particular segment the Chicago crowd will completely hijack the show with non stop cm punk chants

      P.P. Johnny thinks the Chicago fans should bring as many CM Punk signs as they can carry. That way the WWE Secret Police can confiscate more signs for their growing collection.

      If that’s what they really think then they are out of they’re minds. Chicago goes apeshit for Punk and always has. Honestly I hope they drown out the entire show with chants. WWE won’t pay attention to them as always but it does feel good to yell at them.

      just don’t go to chicago, plain and simple. go overseas instead, like japan. or better yet, the philippines! filipinos would love that.

      WWE can’t handle the fact that they let one of their top guys go while letting one of Triple H’s cronies headline WrestleMania. Whoops, forgot about the Old Age Outlaws winning the tag belts.

        The 2014 Rumble was about the worst showing of cronyism I’ve seen in a long time. Not only did Orton retain, Batista won the Rumble, and the Outlaws won the tag titles. But Kevin Nash was the only surprise legend participant, and both Shawn Micheals and Ric Flair got paychecks I’m sure for hosting the PPV. He made sure to give as much spotlight as he possibly could to his buddies.
