Royal Rumble 2008 Match
This was awesome and coincidentally, I watched it 5 years after it took place. Starts off great with Undertaker and Shawn Michaels carrying on where they left off the previous year and they remain in the match for over 30 minutes as the ring fills up with more entrants. Unlike some other Rumbles, the middle section of this where jobbers and midcarders enter was not dull at all. Piper and Snuka being surprise entrants - as well as Foley - was great but please, for the love of God, don't ever take off your shirt to expose that fat belly, Roddy! Save for the Hornswoggle/Finlay DQ bullshit, I struggle to find any real faults with this. Also a great ending with Cena, Batista & HHH taunting each other as the final three then HHH and Cena have a very good finishing sequence to round it out as Cena FUs HHH over the top rope for the victory. The finishing sequence does not match HBK/Taker from the year before but it lasted a long amount of time and was entertaining. Would have been even better had I not known the result beforehand. And the crowd is also hot all night long. Not my favorite Rumble or anything but an awesome one nonetheless. ★★★★
