During the opening of last night's NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn event Triple H was standing in the ring with the lights down addressing the viewing audience. Prior to the show he asked the fans in the arena to be silent to give the illusion that he was in the arena alone.
Thing's didn't go to plan as there were hecklers in the crowd with some even chanting "Chris Benoit" as Triple H to which he responded "that's not funny, be quiet."
Below is a report from Reddit user thefourthman52 who was in attendance for the show and witnessed what went down:
"I was at the Barclay Center tonight and before that awesome intro by HHH he asked us TWICE to be dead silent during the intro to give the effect that he was alone in the arena before showing off the audience. He even went on to say backstage told him it wouldn't work but he trusted us. And then when the lights go out some assholes were yelling even though he just asked us in the best way he could to stay silent. Watching it on the network you could hear the bastards and it took away from the moment. This is why we can't have nice things."
