Re: Rate Royal Rumble 2013
Scored 1/10, only because 0/10 wasn't there.
LMS Smackdown was 10 times this match, this wasn't needed.
Love Bryan/Kane in general but they do not need the belts, I cannot understand this win. I also cannot understand their segment when Kane only came out 3 spots after Bryan, It was is if Bryan had drew 14 and Kane had drew 27 when they were joking backstage. Seems like a really rushed/poorly written segment.
Rumble match itself had one redeeming factor which was Jericho returning. However for Ziggler/Jericho's run, they just seemed to fizzle out. Why the hell did Sheamus get to the last 3 and also eliminate Ziggler? This really wasn't needed. Cena Ryback ending was botched and slow.
Main Event: As all Rock matches tend to be this was an over-hyped, below-average match. However the lackluster finish turned a below average match into a poor match. And not just because "my guy" didn't win, it was just plain bad. Bad match, bad ending.
Overall just a poor rumble, but some of the entrances were good, such as Jericho/Mysterio/Godfather/Goldust...however it really says something when walking down the ramp moments were the best moments of a wrestling show.
I have been staunchly defending this product for years only to be let down again.
I didn't even pay to see this and I still want my money back. What a backwards step.

"Despite the way I would feel personally about someone, if it's the right business thing to do, I'll do it for our audience."
"Giving it to the audience is probably the easiest thing. Finding out what they truly want is probably the most difficult."
"If you stop building stars, which we never do, you wouldn't be in business."
"We love our fans, so there's nothing we wouldn't do for them, and we go directly to them."
"Again, the nice part about it is that we listen to our fans, and they're the ones who really decide who is ready to break through into that top echelon."
