While (legitimate) sporting events are certainly familiar with the idea of fans bringing signs into arenas and stadiums, wrestling shows have a habit of taking the practice to what you would call “the next level.”
And when it comes to expressing oneself at an event like Monday Night Raw, not only is the proliferation of these signs far greater than that of any other sporting event, but their content is also of a wider, and—no surprise—usually odder variety. Just to keep things in check, its pretty common for wrestling promotions (especially WWE) to have security guards confiscate signs they don’t want seen on television.
So, either the WWE is sympathetic toward your for feelings Andy Reid, or Angry Greg Ryan is now working security at the Wells Fargo Center. [pictures below]
This sign—bearing the words “Fire Andy” and pictured both above and below—was frigging everywhere on last night’s edition of the longest running weekly episodic television show in history. Whoever was holding it found himself positioned across from the hard camera in the lower bowl and in countless shots throughout the night. His crowning moment came when he (or, we suppose, she) was found standing right next to another attendee sporting an “RKO” sign during a Randy Orton entrance.
As for other connections to professional sporting entities, it was brought to our attention that the Phillies-own Roy Halladay may or may not have been dressed in an Eagles sweatshirt and sitting with his son in the front row. Unfortunately, there was never a good close up of him and he was never mentioned (to our knowledge) on the broadcast, as athletes sometimes are.
Putting Roy’s presence further into doubt, we came across this twitpic last evening of Doc apparently out shopping for Christmas lights. Though, before we’re accused of blasphemy, we should point out that we are in no way implying that Roy Halladay is incapable of being in two places at once.
Anyone with any confirmations or denials of Halladay at Raw? Anyone actually go?
