Fans Botch Streamer Throw
There was a bit of a commotion at the start of the main event because a couple of fans tried to do the whole streamer thing but botched it twice. Not accustomed to the Japanese and Indy custom security escorted them out, only for them to be brought back a little bit later when it was explained that they weren’t trying to ruin the show. There were audible “let them stay chants.”
It’s unlikely WWE will permit streamers at future events. They don’t want to open the can of worms that fans can throw stuff in the ring, not after the Roman Reigns incident and the risk of getting the WCW trash treatment.
