1.[ECW TITLE] CHRISTIAN VS EZEKIEL JACKSON-the opening match would pit Christian against the bigger Jackson. The match was as one would expect with Christian having to use his speed while Jackson dominated with strength. Jackson looked really good here as did Christian as he always does, really good opening match. The pace was good and the chemistry between them was on point as well. Christian ends up hitting his finisher for the win.
2.[U.S. TITLE] THE MIZ VS MVP-now like I always say I am a fan of The Miz so any time he is wrestling I am watching. I also liked M.V.P. who got this title shot on the spot as Teddy Long added the match a short time earlier. Both were good in this but not as good as they could have been together. Luckily they had some really good matches later but on to this one. The match while not the best was good with M.V.P. getting off to a good start taking it to Miz. But Miz would come back at the end keeping his title with a nice roll up or as I like to say, small package.
3.[WWE TITLE] SHEAMUS VS RANDY ORTON-this one had a great led in that night with Legacy members Cody Rhodes and Ted Dibiase talking to Randy. The thing that made it great was how they came to him separate, and well it was good. This was another good match with both guys getting in some good shots at each other. They take it to each other like good heels do targeting body parts and such. As with the conversations Orton had earlier with legacy that comes into play as Cody comes down. He then of course gets involved which gets Randy DQ'd, that of course leads him to attack Cody.
4.[WOMEN'S TITLE] MICHELLE MCCOOL VS MICKIE JAMES-I don't know what other people think but I loved LayCool to be honest. They are the funniest Divas of all time, they just make me laugh with their mic skills. Any way as far as action this one is not all that long after we get a good intro involving "Piggy James". The match is over like a minute or something later with Mickie standing tall as new champ.
5.[WORTLD TITLE] THE UNDERTAKER VS REY MYSTERIO-now of course we all get the idea behind this match, the little guy vs the big guy [David vs Goliath] concept which is always fun. The match goes as I had expected with Taker dominating with his power tossing Rey every where. Then we get the come back against all odds in Rey as he is just so close to pulling off the upset. Great action form both as Taker just takes it to Rey and Rey tries to break Taker down. The ending is great as Rey hits two 619's but in going for a west coast pop gets to take a trip on the Last Ride. Also it was good to see Taker get a bit bloody, makes him look even more evil.
6.ROYAL RUMBLE-now we get to the match that every one wants to see and never disappoints. For me there is nothing more fun in wrestling than a battle royal so I love it no matter what. Now of course the story here was Shawn Michaels trying to win to get that rematch with Taker. Of course CM Punk is great here in the Rumble and is hilarious with his Straight Edge preaching and performance. I loved him trying to convert participants during the match. Also Beth Phoenix eliminating Great Khali the way she did but I also like her taking it to Punk and eating a "Go to Sleep". Beth is one of the few Divas who can actually wrestle and is one of my all time favorites.
Also it was cool seeing Carlito just because I miss him spitting apple on people. My favorite moment though is HBK super kicking Triple H over the top rope. This of course is not the first time he has eliminated one of his best friends with some Sweet Chin Music. But in the end it is the returning Edge who would go on to win the Rumble crushing my dreams at the time of HBK/Taker 2 although I knew it was still going to happen. But I always want Shawn to win so you know what I mean.
Over all this was a good event but I always do enjoy the Rumble event because I love battle royals so much. If you have yet to see this then I do recommend checking it out since I did like it. Try getting the two pack with the previous years Rumble since you get for the price of one. Still wish Shawn would have won this match, oh well. The special feature for the DVD is the confrontation between Bret Hart and Vince from Raw.

I basically am just a normal person obbsessed with Mixed Martial Arts, pro wrestling, movies of all kinds, music of all kinds, books of all kinds, and of course foods of all kinds. Just trying to keep … more
