Just finished watching the 2004 edition of the Royal Rumble and DAMN..........That Hunter/HBK LMS is so overrated by some, honestly. When I'm done reviewing a PPV I usually look it up and compare my ratings to a few various other sources, and I saw a ton of positive feedback from the WHC match and I have no idea why. It's not a BAD match.... But yeah...

Royal Rumble 2004

The Dudley Boyz vs Ric Flair/Batista : *

Eddie Guerrero vs Chavo Guerrero : ***

Rey Mysterio vs Jamie Noble : **

Brock Lesnar vs Hardcore Holly : **

Triple H vs Shawn Michaels (Last Man Standing) : ** 3/4

Royal Rumble Match : **** 1/4

WHY DID THEY GIVE LESNAR BOB HOLLY TO WORK WITH. That move was so fucking stupid I swear to god. If they had to give Mysterio-Noble 10 minutes it would have kicked ass (but they NEEDED a third of the damn PPV for HHH-HBK, right?) and took names because it was awesome for the very miniscule amount of time that it lasted. Guerrero X2 is probably like the best Chavo match I've ever seen (hate that little fucker, seems to drag the life out of literally every single match that I've ever seen him in) due to Eddie's pure machismo out there.

THAT FUCKING OPENER. What a terrible match, the only thing that saves it from being a complete and utter DUD is the GOAT's attempt to save it. Flair is god, we should all worship Flair instead of this Jesus Christ character, you are all subjects to him and his saggy man-titties. GOATS GONNA GOAT BABY! Anyways............. Terrible, terrible match and easily one of the worst opening matches to a PPV that I have EVER seen.

Rumble was one of the best. This was BENOIT'S time to shine out there and he did it to fucking perfection. The fact that he wasn't spotlighted the entire night despite beating Flair's ironman record blows my mind to this day.... How did they pull such smart booking off (IT'S THE WWE WE'RE TALKING ABOUT HERE FFS!) ? Orton was also awesome in this, and the moment with Foley was my personal highlight. Before the Foley greatness, Orton was shining in particular whenever he locked up with perhaps his greatest opponent ever, the Rabid Wolverine. Big Show's performance was great, Cena's performance was okay, and Angle's performance was.... VERY ANGLE-ISH (take that in whatever way you may........ SUPERKURT). GREAT, GREAT Match , doesn't come close to the 92 rumble but then again I don't think much does.

This PPV is a mixed bag. I say that because of this ; Avoid everything besides the Rumble. Nothing is really worth going out of your way to see besides that, and even though Eddie-Chavo is pretty good you must stay away due to a certain shittyness that I like to call the "Chavo Factor". The Rumble is awesome, watch it online if necessary but I'm sure the DVD can suffice. Since the Rumble is basically half the show and it IS awesome, I can't fail the show as a whole. GOOD.

6/10

Man, I absolutely love the '04 Rumble. Only ones I'd put above it are '07, '92 and '05.

Undertaker vs Randy Orton (Smackdown 2005) - ****

Great TV match and i think it was better than the match they had at Summerslam.

2004 Rumble is the GOAT Rumble.

- Benoit's performance from entering #1 and winning, fantastic.
- Big Show's dominance, great.
- Randy Orton, good showing.
- Goldberg, dominant as well.
- Surprise returns, check.
- Superb ending, check.

Best RR match ever. ****1/2

92 is the perfect rumble. I would be tempted to give it *****1/4 just because Heenan's commentary adds so much.

I watched the Shawn/Bret rivarly doc last night. I laughed, I cried. I felt immensely uncomfortable at times, but it was fascinating to see these two guys sit down and finally talk openly to one another about the situation. I wouldn't say that I learnt very much, but I found it wholly endearing to watch. JR led the interview as only he could.

Shawn still comes across as dick at times and I wouldn't have it any other way. Bret was very honest and truthful, more real than Shawn. Like always, the two complimented each other perfectly. It broke my heart a little when Bret said that they probably would've wrestled for another decade had things gone down differently.

It'll be intereting to see what WWE do with their next Greatest Rivalries release. I know that Austin/Rock has been rumored for a while, and that would be brilliant, but it's hard to imagine that they'll be able to top what they've done with this release. I don't know why it took me so long to watch.

Shawn/Bret Greatest Rivalries probably wont be topped due to the fact that there was so much truth to it. An Austin/Rock set, yeah might go into detail about backstage stuff and all that but was there really much animosity between Austin & Rock to compare to the Bret/Shawn set?

A Heyman/Bischoff or a Bischoff/McMahon set... I'd pay to see that. Never gonna happen, though.

Yeah, the subject for another Greatest Rivalries would kinda HAVE to be something between 2 guys who had/have legit heat with each other otherwise its just another basic documentary for the most part. That being said, 2 guys sat down being interviewed by JR is always gonna be better than a basic documentary .

Fucking TNA. Ruining the WWE DVD business by hiring the likes of Bischoff and Hogan who could both have incredible sit down documentaries next to Vince McMahon lol.

I was trying to think of any "available" legit feuds that could rival the brilliance of a Shawn/Bret doc.

Maybe Steiner/Hunter.

Ric Flair/Shane Douglas - There would probably be a fist fight at some point during it too.
