By the end of the night, though, one chant reverberated throughout the IZOD Center into the evening, eventually spilling out to the arena parking lot, car horns honking along to the beat on Route 3 in New Jersey. It spread to public transit, with people saying they could hear it echoing out of Penn Station and trailing onto New York City’s subways, spreading into the five boroughs. What was this unusual chant?

“DO DO, DO-DO DO DO DO, DO-DO-DO, DO DO DO-DO DO DO DO!” our fans sang, doing their best to recreate the ballroom dancer’s infectious entrance music.

Barrett, Ziggler and Fandango weren’t the only ones shown love by the passionate crowd in New Jersey. Announcers Michael Cole, Jerry “The King” Lawler and JBL all got their own individual chants during the three-hour telecast, as did Shawn Michaels, ECW and the late “Macho Man” Randy Savage.

The atmosphere had many Superstars wanting to leave the locker room and join the WWE Universe.

Hornswoggle didn’t have to think twice about it. “I will be watching the rest of #Raw live from the crowd!” he sent out over social media. “Most amazing crowd I have EVER heard!”

“That NY/NJ crowd has always been pretty darn special!” WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels tweeted while watching the show from home.

If there was any doubt about the crowd’s passion Monday night, all you had to do was ask them. They even had a chant for themselves, which was pretty hard to dispute.

“WE ARE AWESOME!”

Yes, WWE Universe, you are.
