ROYAL RUMBLE 2013

I am a big fan of the Royal Rumble and in fact it is my favorite of the big five PPV's [I am including King of the Ring, oh how I miss you]. Any way this year's was a good one with some highly entertaining moments. Along with the Rumble itself we get three title matches so it was a fun event.

1.[LAST MAN STANDING WORLD TITLE MATCH]ALBERTO DEL RIO VS BIG SHOW-the first match of the night was the World Title match. But before it started we got to see the legendary Bret Hart talking with Del Rio backstage. Then we get into this hardcore match which was an entertaining brawl. They would use whatever they could get their hands on to beat down the other. The biggest moment of the match would have to be Del Rio getting chokeslamed onto a table. It is where it happened that made that something special. I liked the ending here as I was wondering at the time if Del Rio won how would he do it. Their first last man standing match on Smackdown ended with Del Rio trapping Show under a table to keep him down. Here he would tape his feet around the ropes leading to his victory and keeping the belt.

2.[TAG TITLE]TEAM HELL NO VS TEAM RHODES SCHOLARS-the second match would see the unlikely tag champs taking on the highly arrogant challengers. This was a good match in which the heel team pulled off the usual heel tactics and worked over the smaller Bryan. It had a good pace and some nice action from both sides. Kane used his strength to overpower Cody and Sandow that and Bryan submission skills lead to them taking home the victory.

3.ROYAL RUMBLE-as usual the Rumble match was fun and featured many memorable moments. Kofi continued his new Rumble gimmick which is how can he be thrown out but still stay in, which is cool. There was also the surprise entrants like The Godfather and Y2J of course. Dolph looked great here since he is the HBK/Mr. Perfect of these days. All the action was fun and moved a good pace with Cena coming out on top again and going to Mania against The Rock.

4.[WWE TITLE]CM PUNK VS THE ROCK-this was a really good match and best of the night for sure. These two worked well together and kept the action going with brawling all over the place. The counters here are great as well and Rock is hilarious of course. I was so behind Punk here and wanted him to win so bad so when the lights went out and Punk won a little bit later I was very happy with the outcome. But Vince came out and restarted the match at Rock's request since he knew the Shield had put Rock threw the table. This lead to some The Rock getting the title once again in his career, I like The Rock but the wrong man won in my opinion.

This was a good Rumble in my opinion as every match was entertaining. I do not like that Punk lost the title but unfortunately that was not my call. All the non Rumble matches were really good and the Rumble itself had some fun moments as always. The event was not as great as the old school Rumbles but as far as the last Rumbles are concerned it was good.
