Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Is it just me, or is the Royal Rumble looking more hyped than Wrestlemania XXVIII ?
I say this because of the drama surrounding the event. We all knew Trips wasn't going to end the streak, Jericho wasn't going to take the title, etc. The one BIG match that wasn't obvious was Rock vs Cena, and that had NO future implications placed on it whatsoever it seemed. It was a one night thing, and that's about it.
This year we have Punk vs Rock for the WWE Championship, a match that's going to provoke some REALLY huge markish feelings from fans due to the outcome directly effecting the future heading into EC and especially into Mania. Couple that with the always super hyped and super exciting Royal Rumble, and honestly ; It's VERY rare that I'm this excited for a show nowadays. I may have cared less about Survivor Series than any other PPV in history (Ryback was in the main event FFS) , and to have that turn around into this year's Rumble is tremendous. We don't even know what the WHC picture will even look like in a few weeks, so just the thrill of the unknown is present. That's probably why I'm so hyped for Mania XXIX.... The possibilities are endless.
