Re: Official Royal Rumble PPV Discussion Thread
Jericho returning made my night. I wasn't expecting that at all. The final three were perhaps the most predictable of all time, but up until that point I enjoyed the match. There wasn't too much to highlight but Jericho coming in and out of the match made up for almost all of it. Easily the Rumble MVP for me.
Goldie/Cody was pretty awesome and the YES kicks/response was a cool spot. Ziggler didn't do all that much for me despite lasting however long he lasted; seemed like he spent more time nearly getting eliminated than anything else.
ADR/Show and the tag titles were unremarkable, yet entirely fine matches. LMS rematches are still dumb though.
I thought the show was a fun event overall, despite lacking any truly great matches. Punk/Rock could've been better but it was overbooked, underbooked and Rock gassed. Hey ho. Punk ends his run with another special match, albeit one that doesn't live up to a lot of his other defenses.
