This was the biggest Rumble ever with 10 additional wrestlers added to the match making 40 instead of 30. Also there are some great matches before the Rumble so this ended up being one of the best Rumble's ever.
1.[WORLD TITLE]EDGE VS DOLPH ZIGGLER-this year's event started out right with an excellent World Heavyweight Title match between two of Smackdown's best. The match is really good Dolph really letting into Edge for a good portion of the match. Of course thanks to Vickie as I am sure you know Edge could not use the spear. And of course that did not stop him from using it when the ref was down. Afterwards he "gives a shoutout" to Christian by using his finisher.
2.[WWE TITLE]THE MIZ VS RANDY ORTON-my favorite match from the non Rumble matches probably because I love The Miz. This is an excellent match that sees Orton take to Miz until Miz gets some help from Alex Riley. Still even after that the macth is back and forth the entire time until the New Nexus inteferes. C M Punk makes Orton Go 2 Sleep and my boy Miz is still the champ and still awesome.
3.[4 WAY DIVAS TITLE MATCH]NATALYA VS LAYLA VS MICHELLE MCCOOL VS EVE-now I have to say that this is not as bad as some people say, I actually kinda liked the match. It had some good moments and the finish was pretty good. The only thing I don't like is that Natalya looses the title. Still it was a decent match but not the best on the card obviously.
4.ROYAL RUMBLE-this was of course as I am sure you know the biggest Rumble ever with 40 not 30 participants. Of course if you have read any other reviews you know the highlights [there are many], like the Nexus/Corre brawl or the returns of Booker T and Diesel [Kevin Nash]. There are many others I am sure you have heard of like the Spiderman moment, the Hornswoggle moments, Chavo, surprise eliminations and of course our winner Alberto Del Rio. This was with out a doubt one of the best Rumble's in history, in fact it reminded me of the old ones, just pure fun. I wanted Punk or Barret to win this match so bad.
The special features include an interview with Eve, Del Rio's Rumble celebration from the next night on Raw as well as the ENTIRE episode of Raw before the Royal Rumble. This really was one of the best or should I say the most fun Rumble events in a while.
As usual, WWE kicked off the new year with its premiere event the Royal Rumble. Except this time around, they decided to add a new twist to it by increasing the body count by ten. Originally a 30 man match, the Royal Rumble now featured 40 men. In theory, this should mean far more action, a few surprises, in other words, it should be something earth shattering. They managed to pull off the action, and they worked out the surprises, but the earth didn't do much moving much less shattering. Still, … more
This is one of the best Royal Rumble events in a long time with every match being very very good, all the matches before the Rumble are great. And of course the biggest Rumble ever is nothing but fun, I loved it. Plus on the Blu-Ray you get an entire episode of 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
