I was wearing a black jacket. Also skipped shaving so you should be able to notice my BEARD. I was standing up a lot and being loud & obnoxious so you should be able to see/hear me.

Royal Rumble Match Marathon

Royal Rumble 1988
Fairly straight forward and basic but the novelty of being the first match sells it a bit. Enjoyed the opening exchanges with Hart/Santana and couldn't believe how over Duggan was in this match, the entire arena reacted to him. 4/10

Royal Rumble 1989
A step up if only because it featured the star power of Hogan, Savage & Andre etc. You're going to get tired of me saying this because generally speaking the opening is the best part of the Rumble but once again the most memorable spot of the night was Demolition going toe to toe to start it off. The match was going swimmingly - HBK & Henning were pretty fun bumpers and the ring swelled until Hogan showed up and cleaned house. Unfortunately, Hogan's rapid fire eliminations completely slowed the match to a near halt and by the end of it the result didn't really seem to matter apart from the fact Dibiase didn't win. Studd's victory felt too out of left field IMO, probably the least over Rumble winner of all time. 5/10

Royal Rumble 1990
Best all-round Rumble until 01. I know 92 gets a lot of love but for me aside from Flair & Heenan the match kind of blows. This match was just really well structured with a good flow of stars, a lot of fun moments and of course the Hogan/Warrior showdown which received a big reaction. 7/10

Royal Rumble 1991
Dullest Rumble match I've seen. Just a really slow match which save for the Bushwacker elimination was clearly lacking in 'big' moments. 3/10

Royal Rumble 1997
This was a strange Rumble in that it actually started pretty terribly with some really dumb eliminations (two wrestlers eliminated themselves) but really got better from then on. This was Austin at his prime as a performer and this was his best Rumble performance. Just a lot of fun watching him play the cocky but cheap heel who'd score eliminations as the opposition had their backs turned and would call more challengers to the ring even when he's face down in the middle of the ring. Good finale with all the stars at the end although the cheap finish and the fact it meant little come the day of Mania 13 hurts the score for me. 6/10

Royal Rumble 1998
Started well with Funk/Foley but was pretty forgettable beyond that. Austin was billed as the big ass-kicker but didn't really score that many eliminations. Thought Rock sucked in the survivor role and having the NoD turn on each other during the match and mean little later on was pretty stupid. It would have made more sense for them to team up through out the match to emphasize The Rock's elimination of Farooq. 5/10

Royal Rumble 2006
Ever since 01, the match has really spiked in quality and 06 isn't an exception. It's one of those Rumbles that doesn't really get spoken about a whole lot, probably because it was just a straight match that barely built any angles but it had it's moments. In fact, by about the half-way point, I thought it was shaping up to be one of the best Rumble matches of all-time as it did a good job of showcasing all the stars and really made the likes of Lashley, Show & Kane look beastly. Unfortunately, the match slowed down to allow the ring to swell up and at that point it just degenerates into another RR. 6/10

Royal Rumble 2013
After a pretty average 2012, it was good to see 2013 return to form. The match pretty much won me over by the time Jericho shocked the world and returned to the ring but it kept coming up with surprises and some awesome innovative spots. Thought the flow of the match was strong, everytime it slowed down, it usually served a purpose as Sheamus/Cena & Ryback got to dominate. Only complaint would be that the finish felt a tad anti-climatic but otherwise, definitely one of the better Rumbles of all time. 7/10

Rewatched CM Punk vs. The Rock.

The two worked a great match. The Rock obviously not in ring-shape, as JBL liked to call it, but you have to give him credit where credit is due, the two worked very well together. Great psychology early on in the match by both, selling their respective injuries and targeting their opposition's. Jim Ross hyped this match up as not being a classic wrestling match, but a fight. And that's what it was. Hardly any down time, strikes were thrown constantly. Punk trying to take advantage of Rocky's lack of ring time by using submissions was great too. The GTS, countered into a sharpshooter, countered into the Vice was sweet. And then the Rock bottom countered into a rollup into a sharpshooter was epic. Awesome stuff there. And of course, Punk's facial expressions, like always, play a great part. Fixing the announcer's table then taking a bow was GOAT . Not to mention Paul Heyman's ridiculously menacing expressions throughout. Rocky played the babyface in peril very well and did his job by selling Punk as a legitimate threat. Something I didn't get from Rock/Cena.

The table spot was a shame, but as always, slip-ups such as these only add to the match. That was hard to watch knowing Punk's leg injury, and that's the point. They took a nasty spill. And then not even a minute later, Rock gets Punk up and hits Rock Bottom on the floor! At this point the direction has changed. This is Rock's match now. Paul Heyman's face is in his palm, he senses that his champ is in danger. What a fucking great character this guy is, and he does it so well. Rock rolls Punk in and tries to put him away, but Punk's not done yet. He gets up and hits Rock with a perfectly executed roundhouse kick. We're back to an even playing field. Heyman is getting pumped. Fucking hell, this guy is on a roll. Both men are up and are throwing some back and forth punches to play with the crowd. It's not often you see it, but the reaction here is split with this back-and-forth. Rock hits the spinebuster and sets up the People's Elbow.

And here's where the match takes a hit. I could have done without an interference, personally. I've said it before, my hopes for this feud were for it to be strictly one on one, Punk vs. Rock. I didn't want anyone, Shield included, involved. But it added drama, and more importantly, it got the crowd behind Rock. Throughout the match the crowd was evenly split. Loud Rock chants, loud Punk chants, dueling boots to asses, knees to faces chants. But at this point, the crowd was solely behind Rock. Punk pins the Rock and he and Heyman are ecstatic. Fans are stunned, with a good portion of fans glad to see Punk win. Most of the fans, however, feel robbed. Which brings us to the pop of the night, Vince fucking McMahon. Who by the way, is shit as a face. Just my opinion. Especially during that Heyman segment this past RAW. DAT HYPOCRISY. Anyway, match restarts. Punk's pissed and is taking it to Rock. He hits his elbow, but Rock powers out. Fans are loving it. Punk signals GTS, but is hit with the spinebuster and the end is near. People's elbow connects this time, and we have a new champion. Crowd erupts as Rocky wins the championship, and Punk's 434 days as champion finally come to an end. Great stuff.

****

I'm expecting more of a clean match at EC, with Rock ultimately coming out as the winner which sets up Rock/Cena II. Ugh. But I've been loving this feud so far, and I'm looking forward to their upcoming segments and match. Really good chemistry between Punk and Rock. Hopefully Heyman stays with Punk. He was a fucking star here.

Vince being a terrible face is nothing new. He' always been awful at that role and as much of a bully as when he's a heel, except he can actually be entertaining as a heel. But that doesn't mean he's immune to sucking there either. Just see the feud with Shawn/DX for a perfect example.

I can't believe that I, of all people, would be one of the more positive voices regarding Punk/Rock. Full credit to both men and Rock wrestling felt a bit more 'home' compared to the Cena match. Would have gone the full 4 had it not been for the stupid restart with the Shield's involvement so I knock it down by .

On the topic of Smackdown this week, I gotta see it just for TLK's signs.

Smackdown's ratings are gonna go thru the roof thanks to TLK.

I write a review of it for PWMania and I may throw in a line or two about that guy in the front row.

If SD ratings have an increase, it's official: TLK is a bigger draw than THE ROCK!

They should headline Wrestlemania this year in the first ever "Who's the Better Draw?" match. DVD would totally outsell Kevin Nash's legendary "The Greatest Draws of All Time (No Vanilla Midgets!)".
