Watching '09's right now. Pretty enjoyable stuff.
But yeah, The 2005 Royal Rumble is great, probably by most favorite in terms of participants and match quality (not winner though as that goes to Benoit's win in 2004).
You had many great/funny moments, such as Benoit and Eddie beating up the rookie Daniel Puder, they literally chopped him to death lol. All the superstars ganging up to eliminate Muhammad Hassan. Edge in general, his character was awesome at the time. HBK eliminating Angle that leads to their great feud. Funny moments from Simon Dean and The Coach. Cena/Batista both going over the top at the same time ending, leading Vince to come down to the ring in hilarious fashion and falling over while demanding for the match to be restart. Batista winning which sets up the great program with Triple H and the demise of Evolution. Great stuff.
