Hey, Mr. Keith, I enjoy your blog and the interaction on there is a lot of fun to read over, too. I did notice something on there, though, when it came to people reacting to the Husky Harris chants that Bray Wyatt was getting. I find it strange that everyone got all angry at those chants, but it's seemingly okay that the crowd did the same things to Orton and Big Show the night after Mania. Why's it okay during a match like that as opposed to Bray Wyatt?
To me, I don't find that much of a difference. I know people have high hopes for Wyatt, and I think that's why people are more upset, but I find it hypocritical to think it's okay for a crowd to get themselves over in one match, but not okay for something else like that.
Because although smart mark etiquette has fallen by the wayside over the years, there used to be a very distinct hierarchy of smart-ass fans until the internet broke down the barriers for good. And the worst kind of people, like the ones who make us embarrassed to be fans, have always been the idiots who sit in the front row and yell real names or former gimmicks at guys like a kid who's just found a new toy. For anyone who's either been online for more than a month or had a subscription to the Observer, it's like "OK, you know he used to have a different name, very good then". If you're going to a show, cheer or boo who you want and chant announcer's names if you want, or sing along with Fandango's music ironically, whatever, but don't ruin it for everyone else by deliberately trying to break the fourth wall. WWE ruins things that way enough by themselves. But maybe that's just me.
