That said, it did annoy me a bit that you could see and hear a group of fans start chants for Sami Zayn, Nakamura, Bayley American Alpha during the Triple H v Roman Reigns match tonight. I get that the majority of fans are against Reigns at the moment (you watch, he'll be super-popular eventually), but this was the logical culmination of THE major storyline, and it was the main event of Wrestlemania. Rather than disrespecting the performers, who put on a compelling 7/10 match in my opinion, why not simply just cheer Triple H and boo Reigns like the majority of the 101,700 in attendance did? Maybe I am just tired (watched it live in the UK from 10pm and it finished ten minutes ago at 4:55am) but it bugged me a lot
Im sorry if you thought that was a 7/10, it was super slow and boring, it's why the Fans drifted off (theyd also been going for 6 hours at this point). You didn't hear any out of place chants the rest of the evening as far as I could tell, the crowd stayed focused and chanted towards matches that were going on for stars as they were relevant.
Most of the irrelevant and out of place chants fire up during boring or slow matches (slow isn't always bad, it just has to fit the competitors, Taker vs Shane was really slow, and thats an 8 or 9/10, not even considering the age or fact shane isn't a wrestler.)
Chants have been getting more and more smarky as of late, but hey, you paid 100 or 1000's of dollars for tickets (in some cases), you have a right to boo cheer chant. If the performers aren't keeping interest, maybe they shouldn't be given 3 world title REIGNS.
