Before the show properly began and any wrestling took place, WWE's tribute to the recently deceased Bobby 'The Brain' Heenan that featured highlights of the man's legendary career and first aired on Raw a few weeks ago played over the tron.
When the tribute ended, its final farewell message to 'The Brain' was met by thunderous applause, and, eventually, "Bobby Heenan" chants.
Also, following Sin Cara's victory over Mike Kanellis (which we'll touch on in greater detail later), ring announcer Byron Saxton called attention to the faceless one's homage to El Paso's own Eddie Guerrero. Naturally, the crowd exploded into cheers and began chanting Eddie's name as well.
It just goes to show that no matter how big or small the crowd, you can always count on wrestling fans (hometown crowds especially) to give it their all when paying tribute to some of the greatest performers to ever grace the WWE.
A film-loving wrestling fan from west Texas who will live and die by the statement that Return of the Jedi is the best Star Wars movie and unironically cherishes the brief moment and time when Deuce & Domino were WWE Tag Team Champions. Hates honey, but loves honey mustard.
