I agree. A slam tends to get the audiences attention whether or not its there guy doing the slam or being slammed it brings out concern from everyone.
I didn't see it but I was watching the matches, trying to explain to my neighbors how to score the matches and may have missed some of the action.
I can tell you that to a person, everyone in the room became bored to tears after the 174 match. I couldn't argue with them although I was trying to explain to them how evenly matched these weights appeared to be.
