Conversations with the fan next to me at Raw

WWE.com

I attended Monday Night Raw in Baltimore by myself. I was really nervous headed in, unsure of how it would go. I told friends I hoped I had people my age next to me because that would be fun.

My heart sank a bit when a mom and her 8 ish year old son next to me (I was aisle seat). I’m taking pictures for my Snapchat story (obv) when the boy next to me taps my leg. Thus began a night of lots of fun, just a different kind of fun then I thought I would have. He was precious, thought Cagesiders might enjoy.

Neighbor: Hey

Me: Hi there!

Neighbor (holds up Undertaker figurine): I have this figurine. My grandfather gave it to me.

Me: Wow, that’s really nice and really special.

Neighbor: Yeah maybe one day I’ll give it to my children and tell them how much fun I had at wrestling shows.

__________________________________________________________________________

Neighbor (taps my leg): Want to know something cool?

Me: Of course

Neighbor: Roman Reigns is my cousin

Me: Really? And the Uso’s too?

Neighbor: Yeah they’re my cousins too.

Me: Then why didn’t you get better seats? You better give them a call.

Neighbor: It’s okay, I love them anyway.

*he was joking

__________________________________________________________________________

Me: I’m going to run to the concession stand but you watch my seat, and if anyone tries to take my seat, then you just do what your cousin Roman Reigns would do and spear them. Okay? You’re in charge

Neighbor: Yes I will spear them

I return

Neighbor: I didn’t have to spear anybody, probably because I look so tough they didn’t want your seat.

__________________________________________________________________________

Neighbor: I want to get a title belt next!

Me: Maybe you’ll get one if you do good in school (his mom had referenced this earlier) or you can save up and get one

Neighbor: No I only need to learn how to count to 3 for when I pin people and spear them

__________________________________________________________________________

Neighbor: People say this is fake but it’s real. Sami Zayn is real. Roman Reigns is real. Undertaker is dead though.

Me: Hmmm.

__________________________________________________________________________

Roman Reigns comes out

Neighbor (chants): SPEAR SETH SPEAR SETH SPEAR SETH SPEAR SETH SPEAR SETH

__________________________________________________________________________

Neighbor on Sheamus: It’s not nice to say he looks stupid but he does so it’s okay. Right, Mom?

__________________________________________________________________________

Neighbor on Cesaro: So many dropkicks!!!!! Wow!!!

__________________________________________________________________________

Neighbor: Who is your favorite

Me: Cesaro, Sami, AJ, Enzo or Kevin

Neighbor: That’s too many and you didn’t say Roman Reigns my cousin

__________________________________________________________________________

Chris Jericho comes out with the tape on his back from thumbtacks

Neighbor: He got speared by my cousin Roman Reigns then Undertaker hit him with the tombstone.

Me: Oh, really?

Neighbor: Not sure.

__________________________________________________________________________

Enzo/Cass comes out

(I lose my mind doing the intro with them)

Neighbor: He’s cool and all. I was waiting for you to sit down so I could tell you Big Cass may be 7 foot tall but Undertaker is 8 foot tall.

__________________________________________________________________________

He asks me to open his cotton candy tub and I struggle (#sawft)

Neighbor: Well maybe I should do it because I'm Roman Reigns' cousin.

__________________________________________________________________________

AJ Styles/KO match:

Neighbor: Phenomenal clash!

Me: Phenomenal forearm? Or Styles Clash?

Neighbor: I don't think so.
