Hey, I just watched that PPV. It is full on garbage until the Rumble match. Seems like a decent segway into...


Royal Rumble 2004


1) World Tag Team Championship - Tables Match:
Ric Flair & Batista(c) vs Dudley Boys ~ DUD


2) WWE Cruiserweight Championship:
Rey Mysterio(c) vs Jamie Noble ~ *


3) Eddie Guerrero vs Chavo Guerrero Jr. ~ DUD


4) WWE Championship:
Brock Lesnar(c) vs Bob Holly ~ DUD


5) World Heavyweight Championship - Last Man Standing Match:
Triple H(c) vs Shawn Michaels ~ ***


6) Royal Rumble Match:
Chris Benoit vs Randy Orton vs Mark Henry vs Yoshihiro Tajiri vs Bradshaw vs Rhyno vs Matt Hardy vs Scott Steiner vs Matt Morgan vs The Hurricane vs Booker T vs Kane vs Spike Dudley vs Rikishi vs Rene Dupree vs A-Train vs Shelton Benjamin vs Ernest Miller vs Kurt Angle vs Rico Constantino vs Mick Foley vs Christian vs Nunzio vs Big Show vs Chris Jericho vs Charlie Haas vs Billy Gunn vs John Cena vs Rob Van Dam vs Bill Goldberg ~ ***3/4



While the Rumble match sort of saved the show...I hope you didn't spend too much on this.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Royal Rumble 2007 may have been the last strong Royal Rumble card (based on performance). Lashley/Test was the only average match but Hardys/MNM hot tag team opener, Batista/Kennedy which is much better than you would initially think, a fantastic Cena/Umaga LMS, and the Rumble match with the best final two showdown ever made for a good PPV.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I put that PPV on a pedestal, tbhayley. Like you said, block out the 10 minutes of air time that focused on the crappy Lashley/Test match and you have a near-perfect PPV.

Undertaker winning is still

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah, the Royal Rumble match pretty much saved that show. Benoit's performance in that match was great and I loved the way how he eliminated Big Show to end it (one of the best eliminations I've seen). Orton was great in that match too until he got taken out by Foley (which was good because it lead to their awesome match they had at Backlash 2004).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

RR 2004 was an awesome story-developer too. Benoit fulfilled his destiny in becoming a World Champion (which no one deserved more than him at the time), The Deadman sent his first cryptic message to come back at Kane after the Buried Alive match (even though it didn't make much sense when Kane interfered in the Vince match), Foley returned to give Orton a taste of his own medicine after the spitting, Brock Lesnar killed Goldberg's minute of destroying everyone in the ring (which lead to their horrific match but awesome build-up) and it was just a very fun Rumble with memorable moments such as Ernest Miller using Brodus Clay's music before him, Nunzio being a funny goofball plus more. I rate it at ****1/2.

Also, going back to Survivor Series 04, I just noticed the "Haha Batista can't get over" sign during the main event which is pretty funny. After a couple of minutes of flashing, security guy turns up, takes the sign and rips it in front of the camera. Also funny that it was brought up a few months before Batista got over and headlined Wrestlemania 21.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Is it just me or is the Big Show - John Cena match at No Way Out underrated? It was booked very well because we didn't get the typical super cena comeback instead, Cena needed help to win. In fact, Big Show actually knocked out Cena clean and would have won the match if it weren't for interferences. The storyline was bad but the match was very well booked IMO.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Don't forgot about the (very brief) hints at the upcoming pushes for Shelton Benjamin & Rene Dupree. They were put over on commentary when they came out and the like. Which was odd since both were stuck in tag teams that were floating around. Maybe it was simply a coincidence, nonetheless it played out perfectly within the coming months following the Rumble.

No, Cena/Show isn't underrated. It was decent personified by a feud not one non-casual fan cared about. **.

Yeah, I know. I did say that the actual storyline sucked.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Which led to nobody caring about the match when it went down. I.E., not underrated. It's simply there. Begs the question why Ace wasn't canned at Over The Limit since heel Show couldn't even beat Cena with the momentum on his side.

Maybe it was an excuse to turn Show heel?
