Re: Rumble lacked surprises

The Rumble was good until Jericho and then Ziggler were eliminated...........

Re: Rumble lacked surprises

I know, I was pissed with the lack of surprises, when Jericho came out, I was shocked, so I figured they had a few surprises for the Rumble, but it was a major let down, especially with the factt that they didn't have Carlito or Shelton

Y2J making that comeback to start the rumble was amazing. Only surprise they needed... Plus the rumble match was great

Top 10 all time favorites:

Stone Cold Steve Austin
The Undertaker
Shawn Michaels
Chris Jericho
Brock Lesnar
Kurt Angle
HHH
Edge
CM Punk
Kane (98-04)

Re: Rumble lacked surprises

jericho coming out was awesome. that was enough for me i guess. maybe they could have had one more legend come out, but it was fine. the problem wasn't the lack of surprises, but how the end of the rumble played out. it was poorly done imo. no surprise cena involved in something poorly done either.

Re: Rumble lacked surprises

Would have liked to have seen Lesnar show up during Punk/Rock, to then maybe set up a fatal-4-way. I'm still fuming about Cena winning the rumble and Rock winning the title though.

Re: Rumble lacked surprises

It was fine. We got a former WWE Champion/World Champion return (which I didn't see coming) and Goldust/The Godfather which were nice surprises. If the Rumble was full of old midcarders people would complain they were stealing the places off the current crop.

Stop taking the dirtsheets as gospel and then crying when they turn out to be bullshit.


EAT. SLEEP. CONQUER. REPEAT.

Re: Rumble lacked surprises

Jericho alone was a HUGE surprise, especially because it was so soon into the match.

Lets face it, you were all expecting Shelton Benjamin to return and have a 20 minute spot monkey exchange with Ziggler in an empty ring.

Thats what happens when you take the dirtsheets seriously children.

Re: Rumble lacked surprises

Jericho's was all it needed. I think Jericho's entrance is the most out of nowhere surprise entrant in recent memory. Dirtsheets didn't even mention Chris Jericho when talking about surprise opponents, it just came out of nowhere. Goldust and The Godfather (after Barrett teasing it for however many years) were also nice surprises.

It was still a great Rumble match and the best in the past five years, IMO.
