D-K-L's Royal Rumble Review

Nice little video package to start the show, not too long which I like, but got the point across that there are 30 men, but only one dream will come true as usual.

CM Punk vs. Jeff Hardy
Brilliant match to open the show. I was expecting the Cruiserweight title match to kick off the show tbh but this was a great choice, really got us pumped. This match was so interesting becuase of the way you have booked this rivalry, you've booked it so well and you made the IC Title feud one of the top feuds, which WWE hasn't done IRL for a long time. You did well starting the match off quickly as these guys really hate each other, so a slow, cautious start wouldn't have been right for these two. Man, the Whisper In the Wind already! That got the match off to a good start. Loving all the great moves they used in this, the D.U.Backbreaker is one of my favourites. Loved the counter to the Air Punk. Punk just hit the Rock Bottom!? Man, the Anaconda Vice! I think you needed a submission in here to make it realistic as these guys couldn't go at that pace all the way through. Hilarious Ref bump here Lol, only a WWE ref would get caught with a boot from a guy up the the GTS position, why didn't he just step backwards!? ... WHAT!? Sunny just hit Jeff with the belt!? Man I wasn't expecting that at all, don't tell me she's been with Punk all this time!? CM Punk makes the cover and he's the new champ, Yay! Awesome ending and leaves it open for a second match, wouldn't be suprised if you stretch this feud up to Mania, although Jeff will probably be in the MITB. Loved this match Nige and got me pumped for the rest of the show, this rivalry has just been great.

Nice little seg with Rated RKO. They were in character playing their typical heel roles. Loved the New York joke Lol, that's something Edge would say.
Nice little segment with Batista and Flair too, Flair is good at putting 'Tista over and he did that, saying that Batista is bigger and stronger than his opponents, but I still doubt he'll win.

Chavo vs. Dykstra
Nice little match here between two solid wrestlers. I like how you have built the Cruiserweight title back up, and you've done it by giving the title to Dykstra. He's had a good little title reign so far and it's done him a lot of good, so there is no way he's losing the belt tonight. This match was at a fast pace too with both guys getting some good offense in. I like the moves you were using in this like the Brainbuster and the Northern Lights, love those moves. The Three Amigo's were great too. Chavo rolling out the way of the leg drop and Kenny dodging the frogsplash made for an exciting ending. Nice little heel tactics from Dykstra to hit the low blow, and then the cutter. Damn! I said it would end a DQ win for Chavo, and it would've if the stupid Ref had seen it Lol! Nice ending with the Guillotine Leg Drop, top finisher and Dykstra's reign continues, but this leaves it open for a second match too.

Decent interview with HBK, I like what he had to say about him coming back from the career threatening injury. Here comes Cena, can't stand him tbh but he was in character and what he had to say was good.

Here is my pick for the Rumble! KKEENNNNEEDDDYYY! Great confrontation with Y2J and Kennedy. KK calling Regal 'Willy' was funny and something he would do. I'm suprised no one said 'that's a tough job, you should be proud of yourselves' to the tumblers Maria and McCool, WWE normally uses that line every year at the Rumble. It's obvious that we'll get the KK/Y2J rivalry again after tonight so that makes me think that KK isn't winning tonight. I think your next PPV is Mania or a SNME so we could get another match on Raw.

HBK vs. Edge vs. Batista
This match started out really exciting too, it was funny how Batista got dumped out of the ring straight away, not exactly what Flair had in mind when he told Batsita to kick some ass! Some near falls early on were cool. I loved Batista's counter from the Asai Moonsault into the running powerslam, that was awesome. All three guys had their signature moves in this match and you did a good job of eliminating a guy for certain stages, like you did with Batista the start. Lou Thesz press! I was wondering when HBK was going to hit that as he normally hits it early on, Figure Four! Batista was never going to tap from that but it was a good submission to throw in. The last few paragraphs were really exciting with the near falls. Man I thought it was over after the Batista Bomb. Nice close finishes with the Spear and Spinebuster too, and nice SCM to stop the Batista Bomb. Sweet Chin Music to Edge! That was great to eliminate him from the equation, and Sweet Chin to Batista! Yes! Great counter to stop the spear and I'm glad that HBK won. Great match.

So all power has been taken away from the McMahon's? That's interesting. Who is the guy who will take over then I wonder? I know you like your shocks so it could be anyone, but I look forward to finding out, the McMahon's certainly won't like it.
The HHH/CM Punk confrontation was interesting. I don't think it's going anywhere though but what Punk had to say was cool. HHH had some strong words too but I don't think he's winning.

John Cena vs. Randy Orton
This was a really great match Nige, really exciting. It's strange seeing Randy Orton and John Cena in a TLC match but you made it work. Once again the match got off to an exciting start, there are no slow starts in your matches and it's cool to read, especially for a TLC. There was good use of the ladder in this match and I liked how you described how many rungs they were up the ladder, that helps us imagine it in our heads better.There was a real good part of the match between all the ladder climbing, with Cena hitting the powerslam onto the ladder and Orton sending Cena through the table. That was great. The Spike DDT through the announce table was awesome, I really thought it was over there. I liked how Cena made the Superman recovery, Orton should have just hit the RKO through the table instead. Yes, RKO through the table! I'm glad you used that spot. Great ending to a really exciting match and I'm glad that the Orton era will continue.

Cool segment between Hardy and MVP, MVP's joke about Hardy having fun was funny. I really hope that MVP wins the Rumble but I really doubt it.

The Royal Rumble Match
I'm not going to go through and review each part Nige as it's hard to do that with the Rumble without telling the story all over again. The start of the Rumble was cool and I liked how you saved the first elimination for a bit. Marrella was eliminated first like he was IRL this year, poor Santino! Kane with the mask was a BIG shock, I knew that he was coming but I didn't think he was going to be an actual entrant in the Rumble, I thought he was going to interfere and eliminate Taker so it was a massive shock seeing him enter. Kane eliminated lots of guys and that helped him make a massive impact on his return, the way he was throwing guys out all over the place was similar to a few years back when he got rid of like 11 guys.I loved how you kept these feuds going to with Punk eliminating Hardy and Chavon eliminating Dykstra. I was real angry when Ric Flair got rid of Mr Kennedy, he was my pick to win, I don't know why I picked him though really. The battle with the McMahons and Triple H was cool and having JBL re enter and eliminate HHH was a great booking decision. Wow, Umaga made the last three, brilliant! Great choice for the last two, Kane and the Undertaker even though they didn't really fight each other at the end. Kane Chokeslamming Taker off of the apron was a great way to end it, and Kane winning was a big surpise! I knew you would shock us with the Rumble winner and you did. Is Kane going to feud with Taker or will he go for the title? And will Kane be going against HBK now at Mania? That would be really interesting. Great ending Nige, it was the best Rumble I've read on here for sure.

Overall it was a fantastic PPV Nige, really great. It will get the PPV of the month for sure IMO. All the matches were really exciting, you are a great match writer and you proved it here. I can't wait for Raw and SD now to see all the fallout. Great PPV Nige, good job mate!

New Be the Booker Thread up now!

Re: WWE: A Strong Response

Thanks for all the great feedback so far guys, i'm really glad that you have all enjoyed it and are mostly in shock that Kane came back and won the Rumble. Like Dan said, you have to expect the unexpected. I've got a few reviews to return already, but i'll get round to them tomorrow as i've just had a nightmare last ten minutes trying to find my proposal for my Final Major Project presentation, and it's gone

Anyways all the feedback will be returned in due course, JD & Dan are at the top of the list, then i'll get to the rest. Thanks again!

Re: WWE: A Strong Response

Royal Rumble Review
I'll start off with my predictions

WWE Championship
TLC Match
John Cena vs. Randy Orton
I hope that the age of Orton continues because I think that Orton can have great matches with almost everybody that he is in the ring with.

World Heavyweight Championship
Batista vs. Shawn Michaels (c) vs. Edge
I think Shawn should retain the title and go against The Undertaker! It would be like old times!

WWE Intercontinental Championship
Jeff Hardy (c) vs. CM Punk
CM Punk would be a great Champion. This would give Punk the big chance that he needs.

Cruiserweight Championship
Chavo Guerrero vs. Kenny Dykstra (c)
Chavo should win but on the other hand I think that Kenny could do with having a longer reign. I don't know who should win! Both have good reasons.

The Royal Rumble Match
Rey Mysterio, Bobby Lashley, Kofi Kingston, Carlito, CM Punk, Jeff Hardy, Cody Rhodes, Mr. Kennedy, Elijah Burke, Triple H, Shane McMahon, JBL, Chris Jericho, Santino Marella & Ron Killings

Paul Burchill, Harry Smith, Finlay, The Undertaker, Umaga, Matt Hardy, Ric Flair, Chris Harris, MVP, Shelton Benjamin, Chris Masters, Chavo Guerrero, Kenny Dykstra

The Undertaker and Triple H are the last two men left. The Undertaker wins the rumble by chockslamming Triple H out of the ring, after they both come close to being thrown out of the ring.

CM Punk vs. Jeff Hardy
This was a great match. I think CM Punk as a heel, is just about the best thing the WWE could do. Hopefully this will push Punk up to the main events. Jeff was great as well. Great match. 8.9/10 Prediction right!

Chavo Guerrero vs. Kenny Dykstra
This was a good match. I like Chavo but hate Dykstra the reason why is unknown to me! lol. Good match hope that this adds feul to the fire. 8/10 Prediction was wrong!

HBK vs. Batista vs. Edge
I good match all three of the competitors were shown to have the same amount of control in the match. 8.9/10 Prediction was right!

John Cena vs. Randy Orton
I liked the way that this match was set up! I liked the fact that Randy Orton won because I hate John Cena! 9/10 because I love TLC matches!!!!!! Prediction was correct!

The Royal Rumble match
I love the Royal Rumble! I thought that the Undertaker was going to win! But I was close it was his brother Kane! Good twist and turns! 9/10

Re: WWE: A Strong Response

Perfect Poster's Royal Rumble Review:

Before I start with my review, I'd like to say hats off to an awesome Pay-Per-View. It took me a while to read, but I'm glad I read it and hope I'll be able to write some long-ass PPV's like this one. Cheers. Now, onto my review. Sense I'm a first time reader, I'm just going to comment what I read, as I don't know any of the storylines whatsoever, at least don't know them very well.

Punk vs. Hardy IC Title Match: Surprised me to see that Punk was a heel, and I thought you wrote it out very great. A lot of near-falls in the match, with both hitting their signature moves. I liked that Sunny turned on Jeff and gave Punk the belt. Instant heel heat. Great match. 10/10

Edge/Orton Promo: Very in character, liked Edge bashing New Yorkers. Serious ownage there. 9/10

Flair/Batista Promo: Flair put Batista over, but I think he said a little less then what I thought. Batista got the point out of what he had to do, then they had a little "guy hug." 7.5/10

Guererro vs. Dykstra CW Title Match: No offense, but I just find Dykstra a tad too boring. Not your fault, I just don't care for him. You did put on a pretty good match, with Chavo hitting most of his signature moves, such as the 3 Amigos and Frog Splash (if I remember) and glad that you put Dykstra over. He needs to keep the title for a longer time. 8/10

HBK/Cena Promo: I like serious HBK more then what I like comical HBK. It just seems right. As for Cena, it seems like something Cena would say on a normal basis. 8/10

Jericho/Kennedy Promo:
What’ve they seen you do Kennedy Kennedy? . . . Take some snow, urinate on it and super glue it to your head
Classic. Unlike HBK, I love Y2J's comedy segments. That quote is gold, and so is this promo. 10/10

Triple Threat for WHC: I was busy having to do something else when I read this match, so it wasn't my favorite match, but what I read it was decent. HBK getting the win is awesome, still the WHC. 8/10

McMahon Segment:
That is why tomorrow night on Raw, there will be an independent head of authority taking over as the sole decision maker on Raw
You bitch
I actually roflmao at that comment by Vince. I don't think he'd actually say that, but it was great segment either way. I do wonder who will be the decision maker. Way to have something going into RAW. 9/10

Punk/HHH Segment: You are on fire with this PPV so far. I'm in love with heel Punk. And Sunny, for that matter. Calling Steph a slut, not actually saying it, but obviously hinting at it. I'm interested in a Punk/Sunny relationship. 9.5/10

TLC match for WWE Title: This, along with the IC title Match, was my favorite match of the 4. Nice spot with Orton RKOing Cena through the table. And a Spike DDT through the Spanish announcers table? Nice, you can never go wrong with the Spanish announcers table. 10/10

Hardy/MVP Segment: Decent, seemed a little boring except for when Hardy called him a bitch. The only problem with that is it seemed way out of character, as Hardy doesn't seem to be the one to swear. That's just me though. 7/10

Royal Rumble Match: I'm not going to go to deep into this, as that might take me a while and you probably don't want to hear me babble. Anyways, I liked Kane coming in masked and eliminating 9 guys! 9! Maybe he's gone back to 2001 form? Umaga also went over, as he lasted from No. 2 until the last 3. Lashley went for a decent time too, and JBL and HHH furthered their rivalry. I was shocked like many to see Kane win, but he deserved it. Undertaker had it last year (in real life) so it was his brothers turn. 10/10

Overall: 106/120 Great show, easily the best PPV I've read. Too bad I haven't read too many. Great job, and congrats on the awesome post.

Post Re: WWE: A Strong Response

CM Punk has been an awesome throughout this thread and it is no different here. You’ve done a good job making him the heel in this match although some of his moves may’ve been cheered by the crowd. Both Hardy and Punk hit pretty much all their moves they would’ve in real life, so good realism there. You’ve got a good angle working here with Sunny siding with Punk. I have to say I like Sunny with Punk a lot better than with Hardy. Punk gets the win, the IC Championship belt and now the girl … I expect Hardy to come back.

For some reason I still cannot see Kenny Dykstra as a cruiserweight. But hopefully this feud will hope lift him up into a higher division. In all honestly though I don’t really like the booking of this match. I believe Chavo is also above the cruiserweight division, i.e the ECW Championship irl. I feel with cruiserweights like Paul London, Brian Kendrick, Shannon Moore, and Jimmy Wang Yang that some better matches could be booked. Nonetheless this match was entertaining. Chavo seemed to have it in the middle of the match, but it wasn’t to be. Maybe Dykstra should jump the belt to a credible champion and move up the ranks.

This triple threat match has been booked PERFECTLY. There was some good action with each man getting some sort of “break.” By this I mean that it was either Batista or Edge going at, Edge and HBK going at it or Batista and HBK going at it. With HBK pinning Batista I see that Edge’s race for the gold is not over yet. I expect maybe some sort of unclean finish between the two at NWO and then a rematch at ‘Mania. So far this has been my favorite match.
The TLC match was spot on. It started out nice and slow with Orton and Cena feeling each other out before going at it. I like how there wasn’t any weapons brought in right away and we got a sense of a wrestling match. The spots were … well spot on. There wasn’t any real HUGE on but you know when do to them and when not to. Cena looked really strong throughout this match and I thought that may’ve been bad for Orton. The ending was written terrifically … highly entertaining match.

Now for the rumble match I am not going to do a play by play analysis, I am just going to highlight some of the things I liked/didn’t like and stuff like that. The rumble match always has to begin and strong and you did that with Umaga and Lashley. I wouldn’t mind seeing Lashley go all the way, that’d be pretty sick. There seems to be some sort of order in your entrants and that they aren’t just randomly thrown in there. Kane returning wasn’t that big of a shock seeing how all those videos were on Smackdown, but it still surprised me as I forgot about him. The one thing I didn’t like though was that Kane may have entered too soon. But I do understand that you did that so he looked strong, so actually it makes sense. Kane must’ve eliminated 20 guys.

You really told a story with this match. It wasn’t all about the rumble, if that makes sense. Some other angles were taking place throughout this match and that is what made it very enjoyable. It was good to see Umaga last all the way down to the wire, seems as though a push is coming. Also one thing I didn’t like was Kane eliminating The Undertaker. Kane and Taker, although maybe the most memorable feud/storyline/angle, has been beaten to death. I would like to see something different for both of them.

Overall this was a damn good PPV. You’ve come far since I first started reading your stuff and I’m glad that’s the case. This thread is very enjoyable and you are being recognized as one of the best one here. The promo with Edge and Orton was also very good, &#189; because I <3 Rated RKO and &#189; because of your writing, other than that none of the other segments really hit me hard. Just a lot of hype for the rest of the night. All the matches were entertaining and I found myself really in tangled in the rumble match. Great job Nige, keep it up.

Re: WWE: A Strong Response

I'm very sorry I can't give you a full review, Nige, but trust me, I was going to. I just finished the review, which I spent 3/4 of an hour on, when my stupid laptop freezes. I'm not in a good mood right now, but I'll leave a few comments......

First of all, the entire set of results were decent, all great matches, I liked it when Shawn Michaels went for the asai moonsault, but Batista caught Michaels, and nailed HBK with a running powerslam, and when Randy Orton RKOed John Cena off the ladder and through the table, that was immense. It's great to see Kane back, although I think Kane should have entered at #30, not #10, but overall, this show was one of the best I've ever read, and you are, from my perspective, a legend in BTB here on WF. The Orton-Cena TLC match was the best match I've ever read, so keep up the awesome work!

Re: WWE: A Strong Response

Jamie1 Presents Nige with his Royal Rumble Review

Nigel. As promised here is my review for your Royal Rumble. First of all I have to credit you mate. I remember when you started this thread a while back now and a lot of people had high expectations for you and you have managed to live up to them with not much bother in all honesty so I congratulate you for that and I am looking forward to reading your first Rumble. I remember you telling me you were looking forward to writing this. Hope itís better than Survivor Series but that would be hard

The opening promo thing. Donít know what too call it, LOL but I felt this was good and got us excited about the up coming event although you seemed to have a clip for every match that was on the card which is OK but I think you should have had more than one bit of footage for the World Heavyweight Championship match and the WWE. Now I know you had two footages for that but that is just a little thing I thought I would pick up on Have too say though I liked how you ended it with a Wooooo by Ric Flair. Most people including myself ended my rumble with McMahon saying Wrestlemania so I liked this

Michael Cole and The Coach introducing us too the Rumble. I donít like that TBH and always think JR should do it as its more traditional and something I like too here when the old guy getís so excited about introducing us to the event. Anyway, nice build up from both sets of commentators and once again gets us built up for the event

Great way to open the show I have too say and a match that would get the crowd interested from the start. Good booking skills from such a small thing. Another thing I have to comment on is this CM Punk heel turn which due to me not reviewing as much I havenít been able to comment on. I have to applaud you for it and say you done it very, very well as it first I doubted CM Punk would be a good heel. Anyway, onto the match itself. Right, This match was exactly as I expected and as exactly as I had hoped. It was a match you had to get perfect as it was opening one of the biggest events of the year and I think some people may even argue the biggest. The flow in the match was superb and it wasnít broke up a lot. Like D-K-L I liked how you started this match quickly. He said it wouldnít suit there rivalry you have going and I am not too sure but I just donít think it would suit they two superstars and the way they wrestle in the ring. A Whisper in the wind so quick was great and got the match exciting from the word go! I liked how the domination of each man sort of changed with both men hitting moves that you think could maybe get them the win with a few close pin falls. The ending of this match was your booking skills at the best and at the top as the way you ended it kept the rivalry as huge as it already was and keeps it open for a second match. When Sunny through the belt I wasnít sure what you were going too do and a lot of different possibilities were running through my head. I thought maybe she would run in and try and grab the belt of off CM Punk and accidentally hit Jeff. I thought of the finish which did happen and just other different things. I loved the wee nod from CM Punk and then the hit. Great way to end the match and a great way too kick off the show. A MOTN contender I wonder? Well how could it not be!

A decent segment here from Rated RKO I suppose thatís what I can call them even though they arenít a team anymore. TBH though I didnít think they were in the best of character and fell out of it quite a bit. Michael Shane, I really am not sure who this guy is so I canít judge him. Orton was good when he was saying he would beat John Cena. That was his usual character but sometimes you would have him drift out of what seemed like a cocky mood. Edge wasnít in great character also and I think he was worse than Orton but thatís just my opinion. Also didnít like how Michael Shane was introduced to Orton and it was done in like a couple of lines. Would have liked to seen Orton stare at Shane a bit or something like that.

Now this is what I expect from you Nigel. This segment was great although the only bad thing was I didnít here Batista speak but just onto Ric Flair. He was in character all throughout this and it was just really great to read such a great segment. I am sort of confused. Is Shawn heel or is Flair just saying that because he is facing him. I would love too see Batista v Flair but I just cannot see it happening

The Cruiserweight championship match up next no surprises really here and the match I expected to be up. Itís good as these type of matches are usually fast and entertaining which will keep the crowd interested. Not sure if it will be like our usual cruiserweight matches though with Chavo taking on Kenny but still should be good. Onto the match, I liked how you didnít start the match at a slow speed with lots of build up until the action started. You just got Chavo and went straight in there with a punch and the match started. Excellent there. Thatís you done the first two matches starting at a very fast speed and itís a good way to do it. Throughout the match I felt if flowed well. I do think there was too many close 3 counts though. Maybe should had at least a couple were the superstar kicked out not just before the 3 count was done. It is exciting though to have close 3 counts. Anyway, when I seen Kenny push the referee too the side I absolutely loved it. Itís a lot better than the usual referee getting bumped into and he falls down and then the cheating starts too happen. This was a very original idea. Loved too see Kenny win in the way he did TBH as it always keeps a second match open for the next time. Well done!

I am going to be honest with you here. I was really, really surprised to see this segment as I remember you telling me you arenít a fan of a superstar doing an interview before a match. So I was surprised but you have obviously changed your thoughts on that which I wouldnít be bothered about as I donít see anything wrong with a superstar doing an interview before his match and it happens IRL hell of a lot. Onto the interview itself I thought it was a decent interview and is just really to build us up for the next match. Shawn seemed in character throughout which was good too see and I loved the last few lines when he made it clear that he respects Batista but its all about the championship really. Thatís basically what he said and that takes my thoughts away that HBK is heel. I didnít notice Cena came into this segment until I read back for some weird reason. This just added too the goodness of the segment TBH.

Without a doubt the best segment of the night so far with the Royal Rumble tumbler thingy involved. Kennedy and Chris Jericho. Two gods on the mic and two men with great talent. You know its set up for an awesome segment! Both men were in great character Nige and you got this segment down too a tee to say the least. I loved the confidence from Kennedy and then Regal sort of knocking it to the side and not really taking it in. Chris Jericho then coming into it and taking the mickey out of Kennedy. I loved Jerichos first line in this. Just complete and utter classic Jericho. I could see him saying that as I was reading. Great segment mate!

World Heavyweight Championship up next. Certainly should be good. Nice recap before it so that we can all remember how this match came about. I felt this match would start at a very, very slow speed or at least slow but once again you have went for the quick tempo. Didnít like how you got Batista out the equation really quickly. Even though it wasnít too be for a long time I still didnít like it and didnít like how he was put out the ring in all honesty. The match really didnít slow down after that but it did come to a steady tempo which was good for these three superstars. Edge getting a pin very early. Nice idea! I liked how Edge was on top from the start continuing from the last few weeks. As it seems the last few weeks Edge has been coming into this match the strongest so it was good too see you werenít just going to chance this as we all know Edge would be high in confidence. Two pins straight away werenít really near getting the 3 but I liked how you done this and that marked his authority. Nice move from Shawn to stop his dominance putting him too the outside and then taking him down with a Sling shot cross body!!! It looked like you were going to have HBK dominate for a while but after hitting Batista first Batista became stronger and it was good too see in such an early part of the match you had all three men have there dominance and showing to each other and the fans what they can do! Moving further into the matchÖÖ.The pin were Shawn split it up. I had my page so it ended there and I didnít know what happened. It was deliberate it was just thatís were It was. So I really thought Edge had it until I went down and seen Shawn had split it up. Still great excitement through this match. After this the match really picked up. There was a spell were I said to myself unbelievable and could tell IRL it would get so many people excited. When Shawn went to hit with the sweet chin music but Batista ducked. I was expecting Batista then too hit with the Batista bomb but when I seen the spine buster I felt that was a better idea. Then we have the heel intentions of Edge come into it. Pulling the tights of his opponent. So glad to see Batista kick out The next spot of the match was also awesome. Another spine buster from an angry Batista and then the Batista Bomb but NO! Shawn Michaels hits with the super kick and goes for the pin. Will he win it? NO! Edge pulls him away. Amazing once again. Edge going back on top when he ducked from the super kick and hits with one of his own finishers but still no winner and another close pin. Right Edge hits with the spear, The match is over. Is it, NO! absolute amazing stuff here Nige. This is definitely you at your best work with this match. Finally the match ends a few close pins later. Shawn Michaels retaining was great too see and it was a real great finish. I had my opinion that Shawn would walk out as champion but the way Edge started and then the way Batista picked up and with all the close calls I really wasnít sure. Great match and by far MOTN so far. It will take a lot for even the rumble to beat that. Trust me!

Another segment here coming off that great match. Hopefully itís a good one! Like I said I was hoping for a good segment but I wasnít expecting it too be this bloody good. Real excellent stuff and once again in this pay-per-view you are proving to me why you are considered one of the best here! I liked how Vince, Shane and JBL. Have to say its weird JBL calling Vince dad although I can remember the tremendous build up and when the announcement actually came. That was great stuff in this thread. But like I was saying I loved how JBL, Shane and Vince were all considering what they will do and then Linda comes in from the back of them. Shane jokes he is happy to see Linda really and Linda tells him too shut up. Excellent stuff. I have to say, you got Lindaís character IMO to the best you possibly could. Her saying Vince a lot was something she usually does and despite her delivering such bad news she done it in a way were it seemed she was so innocent

Another segment. It will be hard to beat the previous one but lets see if you can manage it. Triple H and CM Punk. That could be a dream match in the making IMO. I donít see CM Punk or Triple H winning the rumble so a title match at Mania between Punk and Triple H. The IC Title I mean. Anyway, this segment was definitely not as good as the previous and I didnít like how it started TBH. Triple H said he would throw 29 other asses out including yours. Maybe its just me or did that not make much sense. Anyway the rest of the segment was decent with both men being in character although its quite hard too tell CM Punks character. Liked the stare off at the end and Sunny slating Stephanie!

I really thought it would be hard to beat the opening match of the night as I thought that was great but still thought you could beat it. This was proved when I read the World Heavyweight Championship match and I then thought that was MOTN but after reading this match I change my mind again. Unbelievable. This is the first match you havenít started at a real fast tempo and you have brought the trash talk into it which I like and in all honesty I donít think these two could handle a very, very fast paced TLC Match. Anyway, I wasnít sure who would win but it really looked like you were giving Cena the major push and he was the dominant force I felt and was dominating Orton. I was going to comment on at first you not using the steel chair enough but how much you used the other two weapons it doesnít matter. I loved the power slam onto the ladders leaning on the ropes. Great move and you could see it being a mark out spot. Three spots were someone went through a table as well. The first one probably being the least exciting. The super slam of the ladders near the start of the match also. There were so many huge spots in this match and there were none that shouldnít have been there. I also need to say I liked it when the steel chair would get used to smack the superstar going up the ladders but he wouldnít fall. That was a very realistic move and I donít think a lot of people would do it. I think most people would have them roll about after it. So that was good too see TBH. The monitor over Ortons head. I could really go on and talk about so many big moments in this match. The RKO through the table too finish the match off really was another awesome move and well deserving of finishing off any match. MOTN by far Nige and you are proving to me once again as I have said already. Why you are so great

A segment right before the Rumble was a good idea as I donít think there has been a great amount of build up too the main event. That may sound stupid but I think this was done well. MVP was in great character and Matt Hardy also seemed in character. I really donít know who will win but I donít see any of these two for the time being!

Like some other people said Nige I am not going to go through and review each wee bit of the match as it would be like telling you the story you already know but what I will do is give an overall review off the whole thing. You had to start the match with a few good superstars and thatís what you did. You got two big guns in Umaga and Lashley before bringing in Kofi Kingston which was good too see and gives us a different element in the match already. When Triple H came into the ring you were right too get someone eliminated by him straight away and bring his dominance into the match. I was thinking to myself you need to get a huge superstar into the match soon as it was taking a while but you finally did and they donít get much bigger than Triple H! Santino getting the first elimination was disappointing TBH but you get a real good segment out of him talking about that. Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! The big red machine Kane is back. I absolute love it, I didnít see there until I read again that he is masked. What will be his reason now but anyway, what a surprise for the show! 3 men out already. Absolute excellent too see three jobbers chucked out the ring and it reminded me of the year were Kane just started eliminating people left, right and centre. Him and The Big Show do it quite a lot. Harry Smith out by Kane thatís his fourth person and I am sure there will be more. The Undertaker not coming out so long after Kane was a good idea and there should now be fireworks in the ring. I said I wouldnít do this sort of review but its hard, LOL . You really started to get some bigger or more talented wrestlers into the ring with Dykstra, Jeff Hardy, Ric Flair and Rey Mysterio. Good to see. Also need too comment on how I liked it that you had Chavo eliminate Dykstra too keep that feud alive and showing that you want too. Kane eliminating him straight after was also good and I believe that is 5 eliminations now. Kane slowly becoming the favourite to win this match but I can see someone putting him out as a sort of shock move! Maven to the Undertaker, that sort of idea. Thereís a lot of people in the ring but not a lot of people eliminated TBH. I had actually forgot about Umaga but I am now glad to see he eliminated someone as you canít have a monster like that do nothing. You kept another feud going with CM Punk eliminating Jeff Hardy. That was also good too see. The Undertaker getting his first elimination followed by Triple H and then Umaga got his second. Triple H I had also forgot about really. The Nature boy gets two elimination. That deserves a wooooooo. Here is Shane and MVP. MVP got a good high number. Wasnít expecting it and Shane In at 30. He surely cannot win it, can he? Shane is out of there after a few eliminations. Great too see it done by the Game, Triple H. Ric Flair is out now disappointed. I loved the next part and once again you showed how to develop feuds in the rumble match. JBL getting eliminated but then taking Triple H out. Glad to see you had both men fight and brawl with each other after there eliminations because if you hadnít. It would have just took away the fun of it. Itís down too The Undertaker and Kane after Umaga getting chucked out. He lasted a while in there with only two eliminations or something. Quite disappointed he only got that but anyway. Kane won the fucking match. TBH during the match I was thinking it must be him the way he was dominating and because of the return with the mask and such. I knew you wouldnít have The Undertaker win also but I am expecting a Kane v Undertaker main event at Mania with Undertakers legacy being broken. Very early prediction but who cares.

Overall/ I donít know if it was the best pay-per-view I have read, hell I donít know if it was the best I have read of yours as that Survivor Series would take some beating but If I did have to choose I would say this was better. Despite a bit of criticism at the start, the pay-per-view really got interesting with some great segments like The Vince, Linda one and we had real great matches. If I am being honest I think the WWE championship was better than the rumble and the World Heavyweight Championship wasnít far away from being better. I would give it around 96/100 which is pretty good, eh ?

Hey Nige, I briefly skimmed through the Rumble, but it seemed pretty epic from what I read. I'll have a review dropped by within the next few days.
