I could see them fitting in well during the French Revolution chanting 'We Want Blood" and 'Razor's Gonna Kill You' around the guillotine.

They would have also chanted "She's a Cake Whore" at Marie Antoinette.

      Wow, you seem to operate in a hyperbolic chamber. And nowhere in this rant does the word "wrestling" appear, so I guess I take this as inconsiderate and misplaced trolling. Like others have said, what makes Philly crowds memorable is the unique reactions that some people get. This makes it a more interesting crowd than somewhere like Portland or Fresno.

    I wasn't aware that in a thread about wrestling crowds, on a wrestling forum, I had to specifically use the word wrestling to indicate my topic.

    But the reason I didn't explicitly mention wrestling is because it's a problem that exists in every sport. This is the same city that throws batteries at players, shatters the glass by trying to climb into the penalty box, intentionally vomits on preteen girls and cheers when a rival team's player is lying on the field, immobile, following a neck injury.

    Not surprisingly, it's the same city where fans first started chanting 'You Fucked Up' at wrestlers when they botched a move, potentially injuring themselves or their opponent. It's not a coincidence that ECW and CZW rose to fame in Philly.

My point again is that the title of the thread was "Best/Worst WRESTLING cities," so your assertion of Philly being a bad sports city wasn't really answering the specific question. But yes, that last paragraph of yours does at least provide some wrestling examples, so we can go from there.

I think the Philly crowds for ECW/CZW/etc. can set a bad precedent, but they were also very respectful and vociferous if the wrestling or storyline was done well. ECW's rise to fame also helped spur the Attitude Era in WWF/E, which ultimately led to a boom period in wrestling. How big a factor it truly was is a valid question, but the crowds and ECW worked hand in hand in getting the ball rolling there.

Philly and its crowds' contribution to past history and to today merits a spot, in my mind, on a list of best wrestling cities.

On an NWA show, the fans in Philly cheered the Freebirds so loudly and booed the Dynamic Dudes that the teams switched face/heel roles for the match.

    Totally agree. My favorite RAW moment ever came in Chicago, and it's my favorite almost exclusively because of the batsh!t reaction the crowd gives.

Read jericho's new book and get a TOTALLY different take on this entrance from behind the curtain when he returned. I was shocked. BTW, it is a great book.

Life is hilariously cruel.

23/32. Really big swing and a miss on this one for me. My biggest miss was a 10-timer, but mostly because I tried to forget about that guy. AND IT WORKED
