RAW after SummerSlam was a huge success as usual.
This week’s episode of Monday Night RAW from Brooklyn boasted a houseful attendance of 13,000+ at the Barclays Center. Not only was the crowd energetic, but there was also a rush of adrenaline among a couple of fans who were drunk/rowdy and had to be escorted out of the arena by the security personnel.
A drunk guy “single handedly hijacked the main event” by flipping off WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, doing a little dance and performing the infamous D-Generation X crotch chops.
He nearly got into a fight for not sitting down and had to be kicked out of the arena. All this drama happened during the main event of the show featuring Roman Reigns vs. Finn Balor for the Universal Championship. Fans followed it up with “Holy S**t” and “Na Na Na Na Hey Hey Goodbye” chants.

This was The Big Dog’s first title defense in 24 hours after winning the title from Brock Lesnar previous night at SummerSlam. Although Reigns managed to retain the title clean against Balor, he wouldn’t have left the arena as champion had it not been for his Shield brothers, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, who spoiled Braun Strowman’s opportunistic cash-in of his Money In The Bank briefcase.
Strowman did cash in as per the announcement made by Jojo but the referee didn’t ring the bell. Thus, technically, there wasn’t any cash-in and Strowman still has possession of his briefcase.
It was a good move for WWE to boost the ratings for the show, get fans hyped, thus serving as a win-win situation for both fans and Superstars alike. The Hounds of Justice ultimately put Strowman in a Triple Powerbomb and drove him through the announcers’ table.
WWE superfan Felicia Rose,who was also escorted out of the arena, was standing next to the guy in the crowd and she noted on Twitter of being kicked out for the second night in a row.
There’s no clear word on why Rose was a target of the security but she was also kicked out on Sunday at SummerSlam for her “Face F*ck Me Finn” sign. This time, however, she did not have any such sign on RAW but still had to quit the arena.
Just got kicked out for my #facefuckmefinn sign. Lol

Was that the reason for the asshole chants? Heard someone tried to slip in a beach ball again. What happened? Damn security.
