It seems Seth Rollins wasn’t best pleased with the Brooklyn
crowd’s contribution to SummerSlam this weekend. Not long after his match with
Finn Balor for the Universal Championship, he took to Twitter to give those in
attendance a stern down-dressing. More on that one later...
In fairness to the Brooklyn faithful - and the vast swathes of outsiders the event likely lured in - they had an awful lot of action to sit through. Not that any of it made for terrible viewing, but six hours of just about anything can be a little too much to handle for most.

It’s becoming more and more common for audiences to get flak for “trying to put themselves over”, but here we had an example of them just joining in with the fun and adding some colour to the overall show.
