Yeah, I did watch the Royal Rumble last night just like I watch the Rumble every year. Out of all 4 of the WWE’s major ppv series: Wrestlemania, Royal Rumble, Survivor Series and Summerslam… the Royal Rumble would have to be my favorite. Why? It’s because it’s so fun seeing a bunch of wrestlers in one ring going at it. I love Rumble matches, they’re such a blast to watch; however, not every Rumble year is good. There will be some good and some bad Rumble matches.
Well last night’s Rumble ppv was good. Other than the two Rumble matches, the men’s and the women’s Rumble… I enjoyed all the other matches as well… King Corbin vs. Roman Reigns – Falls Count Anywhere match was surprisingly good and not boring at all. The Fiend vs. Daniel Bryan strap match stoled the show and entertaining as hell. Becky Lynch vs. Asuka champ match was awesome as well.
Of course, I loved both the women’s and men’s Rumble matches. Both of those matches were fun and entertaining as hell. Very exciting all the way through. Charlotte Flair ended up winning the Women’s Rumble and Drew Mcintyre ended up winning the Men’s Rumble. It’s a good move ’cause they never won the Rumble before and it’s always nice to see someone who hasn’t won the Rumble before win it.
In the women’s Rumble match, we got mostly a mixture of RAW, SD women and a bunch of NXT women. We had a few surprise entrances such as Tamina Snuka, Mighty Molly and The Glamazon Beth Phoenix. Bianca Belair a superstar from NXT lasted a little over 30 minutes in the women’s Rumble which was impressive. Bianca killed it and gave a great performance.
As far as the men’s rumble goes, Brock Lesnar was the first one in the ring and it looks like he was going to win it by eliminating every guy which was what he was doing at first. Lesnar lasted a little over 26 minutes and had 13 eliminations until Lesnar got eliminated by Drew McIntyre. The last 5 guys in the Men’s Rumble ended up being McIntyre, Randy Orton, Edge, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins which was very thrilling. It was thrilling those 5 guys were left ’cause you never know who would win it. Any one of those 5 guys could have won but the winner of the Men’s Rumble ended up being Drew McIntyre which was a shocker really. Finally an unpredictable Men’s Rumble. Honestly, Drew McIntyre was the right choice as he had never won a Rumble before.
So the main event for Wrestlemania just might be Drew McIntyre vs. Brock Lesnar for the championship. We’ll see how long Lesnar holds the belt ’cause it’s pretty likely he’s going to keep it until Wrestlemania. Unless, Lesnar loses the belt before Wrestlemania and McIntyre could be facing someone else. We’ll see how this goes.
We didn’t get returns of John Cena and CM Punk yet, though… ’cause the rumor mills are swirling that those guys will be returning soon… but Edge is back, though. Edge is not just back for a one off. He’s out of retirement, I think and back full time again ’cause I heard Edge just signed a multi-year deal with WWE so I I think Edge will be around a while. If Daniel Bryan can come out of retirement due to a serious injury then Edge can too.
Last night’s Rumble was great and WWE is trying to improve and get better. It’s now the beginning of the Road to Wrestlemania so we’re gonna start seeing the Wrestlemania card shape up.
I’ll be watching RAW tonight to see what’s gonna happen after the Rumble ppv. Great work WWE and keep it up!
