huge crowd reactions in wrestling

Welcome back to “Huge Crowd Reactions in Wrestling.” This series is basically an excuse for us here at Nerdopotamus to revel in some of the moments that made us lose our minds. I mean, we’re all pretty huge wrestling fans. We live for those huge crowd reactions. Even as at-home viewers, those are the moments we crave. We want to be on the edge of our seats, or even out of them entirely.

For this issue, I thought I’d seek outside counsel. I asked Nerdo regular Carlos to pick the huge crowd reaction. He shot back with Rob Van Dam winning the WWE Championship from John Cena at ECW One Night Stand 2006. It’s been covered before here on Nerdopotamus, but I still went with it. This is one of my favorite moments of all-time.

The work on all parts was top notch. The ECW crowd was famous for being rowdy. They lived up to that and more at the two ECW One Night Stand pay-per-views. More so in 2006 than 2005, because the WWE’s highest prize was up for grabs. No way Vince McMahon would let an ECW guy walk away with the title…right? Right? RIGHT?!?!?!?

The atmosphere for Cena versus RVD is insane. From the opening moments, to the closing bell, everyone in attendance is tuned the fuck in. When the Doctor of Thuganomics slips up, they let him know. When Mr. PPV does what he does, they hit him with praise. They’re there every step of the way. Honestly, this whole match qualifies as a huge crowd reaction.

It’s a classic.
