Re: Rate Royal Rumble 2013

I'm giving it a 5, simply for the Rumble match and Rock's win.

If you take away Rock winning then this really was a forgettable PPV.

Re: Rate Royal Rumble 2013

7/10. Enjoyed the WH Title match though I thought the SmackDown match was better. Hell No/Rhodes Scholars was solid, though I was sure Rhodes Scholars would've won. Hell, given that Bryan eliminated Kane in the Rumble, it would've made sense for Rhodes Scholars to win.

The Rumble was enjoyable. Jericho coming in at number two gave me a goddamn mark attack and I love that he and Ziggler went deep into the match. The Goldust/Cody face off was pretty awesome and even if I don't like him, it was cool to see Bo Dallas take out Barrett. That's a nice way to get a new guy over. I don't know what it is about the Rumble, but I'm always expecting a surprise at #30, and that doesn't really happen often, if ever. Hell, I should've expected Ryback since he hadn't been in there yet, but eh. Cena winning just fucking sucks though. He doesn't deserve his win back, or anything. Fuck him.

Gonna have to watch Punk/Rock again, but I was enjoying it. The finish got a little convoluted and I kinda don't like that Punk couldn't kick out of that People's Elbow, but it is what it is. I'm not mad, a little disappointed though. I'd feel alot better about Rock as champion if it wasn't Cena who'd be gunning for him at Mania.

Overall not a bad show, but a sour taste was left.

It's About Damn Time.

Re: Rate Royal Rumble 2013


The greatest title reign of this generation was ended prematurely by a B list actor, and John Cena wins his 2nd unneeded Royal Rumble, setting up 2 HORRIBLE matches for WrestleMania that I absolutely refuse to watch. On top of that, you called up Bo Dallas, one of the worst overall wrestlers I've ever seen, and not only debut him, but you have him eliminate Barrett. Chalk up another argument for the "Vince hates the English" arsenal I have. It's not even worth complaining about, because Barrett's future is so far gone that it's barely worth even bringing up at this point, but it IS a bad point of the show regardless, so it needs mention.

Then you have this INCREDIBLY STUPID segment between Kane and Daniel Bryan, and whoever approved this should immediately be fired. Out of a cannon into the sun. And I know full well I'm an idiot for being THIS bothered by something so miniscule, but fuck it, it's rant time.

Let me preface this by saying, the segment is only stupid in hindsight, once you get to the Rumble. The segment itself, had they booked them in the Rumble right, would've been fine. And I admit I laughed at the "you show me yours, I'll show you mine" back and forth. So Kane and Bryan look at their numbers, and Bryan has this look on his face, like he just got the worst news ever. He looked like he found out he has AIDS, and Kane is smirking. So Kane won't show him his number, and Bryan is upset, and Bryan says "see you out there", and Kane goes "HIGHLY unlikely". So we're supposed to take away from this, presumably that Bryan got #2 and Kane got #30. It didn't have to be, it could've been Bryan got like #4 and Kane got like #27 or something, who cares. So in the Rumble, Bryan gets #21 and Kane gets #24. WHAT THE FUCK WAS THE POINT OF THAT SEGMENT THEN? 21 IS A BAD NUMBER? TWENTY ONE? ARE YOU SERIOUS? 21 is a GREAT number, you're in the last 9 entrants, you're late. And then Kane comes out at 24. He was TWO spots between Bryan. TWO. Highly unlikely they'll see each other in the Rumble? They practically came in together! UGHH. I don't even want to think about it, this is gonna hurt my head. Fire that person.

The only reason this PPV gets a grade at ALL is because Ryback didn't win, which would've been even worse than Cena, and Del Rio is at least still WHC and not Big Show.

Re: Rate Royal Rumble 2013

I would give it a 7. It was a very entertaining pay-per-view but some of the decisions really took away from the best parts. The end of the main event was like a slap in the face to Punk's title reign and Cena winning the Rumble was all too predictable and not wanted.

Pretty predictable, which will most likely lead to a predictable Wrestlemania.
