Royal Rumble Review
Sunday Night Heat -
Well, this isn't RR, but here goes. I liked all the RR moments that were played. It seemed so realistic. Sunday Night Heat was great as it really hyped up Royal Rumble.
Royal Rumble Hype Video -
Wow. This is my first time reviewing a PPV and boy did this video description really hype me up. Classic and really realistic video. It was nice and lengthy and gave me flashbacks of old PPV video hypes.
Commentator Talk -
Usually, commentators have small roles in BTBs, but so far, they've had plenty to talk about and they usual fight between brands happens.
WWE Championship Match -
MSG was really behind Jericho throughout the whole match. Every near fall for Lesnar, the MSG would cheer, which is realistic considering Jericho is the face. The beginning of the match was great and it showed that Lesnar is mostly muscles and no brain. Throughout the whole match, Lesnar had control and Jericho would being ruined. Jericho, however, managed to fight back a couple of times, which led me to believe that he would win this match. When Jericho hit the Lionsault, I thought it was over and Jericho won, but I scrolled down, and Heyman pulled the ref out, which is highly likely. In the end, Brock Lesnar won by cheating, which also leads me to believe there will be another encounter between the two. Lastly, this was a phenomenal opening match. Hard to be topped.
The Rock/Shawn Michaels Segment -
Wow. Two legends fighting with each other. Great comedic moment between The Rock & Garrison Cade. You make everything seem so realistic. Now, as for Shawn Michaels and The Rock. I think this segment has led me to believe as well, as others, that at Wrestlemania, a dream match will happen as The Rock takes on Shawn Michaels. That would be amazing.
Kurt Angle Promo -
Wow. It truly shows his ruthless aggression in this promo. I haven't been reading much of this BTB, but I wonder why Angle wants to face Bret Hart so badly. Angle is a main eventer and a match against Bret Hart would be a dream, but I think at WM, he should be in the main event fighting for the championship.
Legends Battle Royal -
I really enjoyed the entrances. Very clear descriptions were given of each wrestler. I am rooting for Jake "The Snake" Roberts in this one. Wow. I would think that a Battle Royal would be very difficult to write, but this one was done to perfection. Great first elimination as Jake Roberts scares Kamala, and Kamala ends up eliminating himself. Wow. Jake Roberts is out second by the man he started the match against. Lawler made a very intelligent move there. Neidhart's elimination was surprisingly odd, but it happens during battle royals. Eliminations are coming fast as IRS is eliminated by Dusty Rhodes. Jake Roberts DDT on Lawler for revenge was realistic. Damn. Duggan is eliminated. Pretty quick battle royal, IMO. Tatanka eliminated. I didn't expect him to win, and if Lawler, doesn't win, I'll be surprised. Lawler is up to cheap tricks and eliminates Jannetty. Lawler looks like he'll win this. Wow. MVP of the match so far, as Lawler eliminated Road Warrior. Well, well, well. Dusty Rhodes wins. I would be extremely pissed off if I were Lawler. Phenomenal battle royal, but I thought it was extremely short.
Coach Joke -
Yeah, maybe Lawler can go back to doing something he’s good at.
No. I said something he was good at.
Hilarious. I was laughing for awhile after I read this.
JBL/Carlito Number Draw -
Phenomenal segment with a possibility of a United States vs. IC Title Match at Wrestlemania. I see them colliding in the Royal Rumble for sure. I hope JBL gets the better of it now, so that Carlito gets the always better revenge.
Brotherhood vs. WGTT -
Seriously, this is the best tag match I've ever read. This was a phenomenal back and forth match. I seriously thought that in the end, the Brotherhood would win as Jordan hit a Tornado DDT and went for the pin. However, Shelton broke it up. I loved this match, and since Wrestlemania is around the corner, I'm guessing you have a big tag match planned for the event.
Eugene/Snitsky Number Draw -
Kind of a funny and expected segment. I don't see a feud between the two from the events because I don't think it would be that entertaining. Also, Eugene is "stupid/retarded" (no offense), so his number may actually be bad.
Austin vs. Goldberg -
The match's video package was great. It reminded a lot about the past. I am rooting for Goldberg in this one. Austin's getting old and his career should conclude, but then again, it should conclude with a victory, so Austin might end up winning. So confused from what I just wrote. WOW!!! I just finished reading the match, and was it a match or what. So many near and close pinfalls. The Stunner was hit a couple of times, but to no prevail and the Jackhammer was also hit. This match was an all out brawl and a MOTN contender so far. Surprising events as Austin wins. In the end, this was a phenomenal back and forth match. The idea of Austin retirering was put forth. I hope this doesn't happen, but if he did, what a last match.
Wrestlemania Video Hype -
I didn't get the video hype at all. It was pretty confusing and didn't really hype up Wrestlemania. I know you can way better. Some funny moments in it, with guys doing their expected lines.
Triple H/Rey Mysterio Promo -
Royal Rumble has already hinted a few possible matches for Wrestlemania and this is one of them. I think a Triple H vs. Rey Mysterio match would be a classic. I liked this promo because this sets up a match between the two or a match with the champions. Great job.
Bret Hart/Kurt Angle Segment -
Great video package of the history of the two. It helps someone like me who hasn't read this BTB much. Angle turns heel. This was a good segment. I kind of expected an attack if Bret didn't sign it though. I wonder what will happen until Wrestlemania. Bret said he couldn't wrestle, but now he's obligated to do it. This could actually be a very good storyline. Bret Hart vs. Kurt Angle storyline, from what I've read, has been one of the best storylines/feuds yet.
Lesnar/Randy Orton Segment -
A good segment that could foreshadow something. Randy Orton vs. Brock Lesnar could be a great match between two young, but wonderful wrestlers.
John Cena vs. Undertaker -
Great match. It was a pretty quick match ending at 16 minutes. Lots of near and close falls. I thought Undertaker had this match and would go into Wrestlemania as champ, possibly for the last time. John Cena wins, and will go on to Wrestlemania as champ. This leaves a challenger to be named. I think Undertaker shouldn't get a shot at the title, so I think the winner of the Royal Rumble will face John Cena. One way or another, I'm hoping John Cena loses the title at Wrestlemania.
Christian/Austin Segment -
Many segments of this nature have come up during the Royal Rumble so far. They're good because they can help prepare matches for Wrestlemania, but overuse isn't good. If I'm wrong, please correct me, but a Christian vs. Austin match seems likely for Wrestlemania.
Royal Rumble -
Rey Mysterio and Rob Van Dam start off the match. I think it's a great pair to start off the match, but this lessens their chance of winning, which isn't good. WOW!!! I just finished reading the Royal Rumble, and boy did it take a long time. It had tons of entertaining moments such as Chris Benoit's consecutive eliminations and Simon Dean's fast elimination. MVP, whether he won or not, would have been Chris Benoit. I was really surprised that he won. I was expecting a win from Randy Orton or Triple H. By far, was this an entertaining Royal Rumble. Now to think about the possible main events. Benoit vs. Lesnar or Benoit vs. Cena. Benoit vs. Lesnar sounds more appealing.
I saw quite a bit of mistakes. But considering this was a PPV and is of great length, you get a 9/10.
The matches were awesome. Some of the best matches I've ever read. Most were very entertaining and very realistic. 10/10
Your promos were great, but some things like encounters between foes came up quite a bit, or I'm just delusional (which is more likely). Nonetheless, your promos were great, everyone was in character, and it foreshadowed the future. 9/10
No description need. 10/10
One of the most entertaining wrestling reads, I've ever read. 9/10
You get a 47/50
, which equals 94/100.
Long read and review, which took about 4 fours, but in the end it's worth it because I gain experience.
