Re: Why Dave Meltzer has rated DUD the Royal Rumble Match 2005 ?
Is his opinion, everyone has its own opinion.
To me that Royal Rumble match should be used as template for the future RR matches, it was one of the few times the match was used to elevate new guys and advanced the storylines leading to WM 21.
- Teasing us the end of Evolution : Flair trying to eliminate Batista.
- Starting the HBK/Kurt Angle feud.
- Eddie and Benoit receiving living legends booking.
- the Paul London spot.
- Muhammad Hassam bieng eliminated by both brands talent.
- the final 4 (Batista, Cena, Edge, Rey Mysterio) were no former world champions.
- showing us that the WWE future main event scene was safe at the hands of Cena, Batista and Edge.
Even the so called botch added to the match, I never thought it was a botch because leading to the PPV the theme was the war between both brands and the Batista and Cena falling out the ring at the same time only added to the storyline pf both brands being equally strong.
The only thing that is painful to see is Vince injury, but he took it like a pro.
