Did You Know?
Most of the show aired live, but the match between Edge and Randy Orton was filmed on June 7th. This allowed for some enhanced and unique production techniques, like different camera angles (particularly the overhead shots), and amplified crowd noises to make it sound more like it was in an arena with 10000+ fans. They also used the opening of the song "The Greatest Show" by Panic! At the Disco, and also used the drop down microphone used in Madison Square Garden in the 1980s (and seen being used during WrestleMania I) and had the voice of the late Howard Finkel introducing both wrestlers and making the announcement of the winner after the match was over.
