Brock was a bit more than a rumor, though. There was a lot of smoke and where there's a lot of smoke, there's a lot of fire.
I remember there being a lot of rumors online about Brock at the Rumble.
As syxx just pointed out, there was a lot of smoke about Batista.
Around WM time there's always a ton of smoke. This was an actual promo they'd been showing.
Again, like syxx said, if it was a typical WWE crowd (which is probably what they were expecting) it would have been a non-issue as 75% of the crowd wouldn't have had a clue that Brock was rumored to be around. But because so many people like you stuck around for RAW, there was a level of expectations and knowledge that they didn't anticipate.
