So I watched the Royal Rumble ppv last night and it was good. So the main event for the upcoming ‘Mania 33 is probably gonna end up being John Cena vs. Randy Orton for the WWE Title. Last night John Cena won the WWE Title from AJ Styles (which was an amazing match btw, more on that later in this post) and Randy Orton ended up winning the 30 Man Rumble matchup. So that basically means that Orton is now automatically slotted to headline ‘Mania 33 for the WWE Championship. Could it actually be Cena vs. Orton @ ‘Mania? Possibly if Cena can keep the belt for that long that is unless someone takes it from him before ‘Mania but I doubt it though. It may not seem like it but Cena and Orton never had a headlining singles match at ‘Mania before so I think it’s finally time. Cena and Orton had other singles matches at other ppv’s before but never ‘Mania. Correct me if I’m wrong. I think Cena vs. Orton should happen at ‘Mania ’cause that would make an amazing match.
It’s sad that the Undertaker lost again but I think the Undertaker will still have a match at WM-33 this year. Who would Undertaker have a match against? Undertaker will probably end up having a match against Roman Reigns. Undertaker got eliminated by Roman Reigns at the Rumble last night so the Undertaker will definitely want his payback. So watch out Roman, you just messed with the wrong guy!
As far as the Rumble match itself goes, it was pretty good but slightly disappointing. Not because that Orton won, though. I’m actually glad that Orton won ’cause that was unexpecting. They made last night’s Rumble match unpredictable this time which was good. I’m disappointed in the Rumble match ’cause they made Brock Lesnar and Goldberg look like babies, they didn’t last long in the match at all. Sad! There were also no surprising superstar returns from the past which also made it disappointing: No Kurt Angle, no Triple H, no Shane McMahon… nobody came back. Just current superstars.
I thought Kevin Owens vs. Roman Reigns match was really good. I’m starting to like Kevin Owens even more. After watching that match, I thought to myself, did Vince finally lift the ban on chair shots to the head? There were a few of those in that match last night I see.
I thought the best match of the night was Cena vs. AJ Styles. That match was amazing. You see Vince? That’s what we all want to see. GOOD WRESTLING. Technical wrestling finally made a comeback. That match was incredible and will go down as a classic years from now. Both men did a phenomenal job. Ya know, when I used to watch TNA Wrestling… I’ve had my eye on AJ Styles for years and I always knew that guy would be a big WWE Superstar someday and here he is. I used to hate John Cena but I don’t anymore. Cena is becoming my favorite lately and I’m liking him more and more. I don’t understand all the Cena hate ’cause like him or not, that man is very talented and works hard. My respect grew on Cena lately.
It was a pretty good Rumble last night.
