Right.

Went back 6 pages and didn't find one, so if anyone has problems, I don't much care.

Figured we could use one, should probably be pinned so it stays confined to one and is always easy to find.

I've seen pretty much nothing from 08 so far, so someone else is going to have to lead off discussion.

So far I've liked the MASADA vs. Ito Deathmatch the most so far, tbh.

I haven't seen much of anything so far.

Angle/Cage, and Nakamura/Tanahashi are the only ****+ matches I've seen so far.(All **** exactly IMO)

edit: I know most won't agree here, but Angle/Nagata also falls into the **** range for me as well.

Gail Kim vs. Awesome Kong - No DQ form Final Resolution should be close to ****. It wasn't the best match on the PPV, but I thought it should get a mention.

Gave it ***1/2. The ring became a little full and killed the middle portion a little for me. Cena coming in saved it, though (and I don't even like him).

Personally, I wouldn't go any higher than ***1/2 on the Rumble.

Way too much of a clusterfuck for my liking. The eliminations didn't feel well paced to me, there was no elims for like 15 minutes and then 3 in about 30 seconds.

I liked last year's Rumble alot more.

I agree for the most part. A few things took away from the match for me: The whole Hornswoggle BS and Chavo being a participant left me with a bad taste in my mouth. The John Cena shocker was however really, really awesome and it raised the overall score in my mind to *** 3/4.

When Chavo entered, it did make me laugh for a good while.

Hornswoggle was a complete waste of time in the Rumble.

Overall the Rumble was ***3/4 for me as well, the crowd really helped it as well because everyone (except Elijah Burke) got a good reaction which is cool to see plus Cena at the end was 1 of the best surprises WWE have done in a long time.

Yeah Cena did help this years Rumble alot although the ending of last year's Rumble with Taker and HBK going head to head was amazing.
