Some people, I would say the majority of wrestling fans out there believe the #2 of the big 4 is the Royal Rumble. Biggest show of the year, behind Mania is the Royal Rumble. Why? It is the start of the road to WM. Along with a match that comes by 1x a year where people are guessing who will win this match. The winner goes on to face the world champion at WM. That along with some surprise entrants over the years to look forward to. The point of this blog is to have fun, get excited, and get folks pumped for this ppv. I hope I have done that thus far with this opening, cause I know I'm pumped!! Are you ready for the challenge? This is the booking challenge: Royal Rumble 2014!! 10 match limit max as always. So you know how this works, give your best card possible as usual. For those who don't understand the point of the booking challenge, please read the explaination right under this opening beside the *. For the booking challenge vets, here is my Royal Rumble 2014 card:
*The point of the booking challenge isn't to predict what the actual card will be. It is to challenge wrestling fans to give what card they want to see. Give the best card that not only they want to see, but others would like to see as well. There is no fun in predicting what the wrestling card will be because every card will be basically the same. The point is, you are the booker and you got the keys to the car. People complain all the time including myself about wrestling product. Put your money where your mouth is. You give me the card better than the actual card and dare I say attempt to have a better card than mine. Forget current storylines, give me your storylines and your best card you can deliver in the comment section below. Creates that competitive environment I want, I want the readers to compete with me. Give me their opinion on my card and I'll give you my opinion on yours. That is the booking challenge!! This will be copy and pasted on every single booking challenge since some still don't understand how it works.
Pre-Show: Tag Team Turmoil #1 contenders match: Usos vs PTPs vs Tons of Funk vs Xavier Woods/R-Truth vs Los Matadors-Need a heel team in this match which of course would be Tons of Funks. Makes no sense not to have Woods/Truth in there. Other face tag teams are more over with the crowd which is why I just went ahead and did the tag team turmoil. Usos win!
Open Challenge Divas title: AJ(C) vs NXT/former Diva-By 2014, Total Divas rivalry with AJ should be over. Want to start off fresh by going to brag to Stephanie McMahon about defeating all the Total Divas. Asks Steph to get her some competition at the Royal Rumble. Bring some intrigue to the Divas title for once trying to figure out who it could be. I'd like to start the show off with that. Buy time also for Tamina vs AJ or Stephanie possibly at Mania for that prize. I was thinking either a former WWE Diva like Victoria, Mickie James, or simply a NXT prospect coming up getting the oppurtunity. AJ wins either way....
US title: Dean Ambrose(C) vs Antonio Cesaro vs Jack Swagger vs Rey Mysterio-Rey Mysterio is the #1 contender for the US title, Zeb complains about it to Vickie. She adds Cesaro and Swagger to make it a fatal 4 way match to make sure a Real American leaves Royal Rumble as the US champion. Ambrose retains!!
Tag titles: Rhodes Bros vs Wyatt Family-What heel team better than the Wyatt Family to take the gold off the Rhodes so they can start a feud? Cody is pinned so Goldust blames him for his comeback run is coming to a end. Takes it out on his brother including eliminating him from the Royal Rumble. Wyatt Family wins!!
IC title: Big E Langston(C) vs Roman Reigns-Big monsters finally collide at a big stage for the prize of the IC title. Ambrose grabs Reigns leg by accident when he has the advantage only for Big E to hit the big ending!! Big E wins!!
WWE title: Randy Orton(C) vs Kane-What is wrong with Kane? He needs direction. His whole career he needed someone to tell him what to do because he isn't smart enough nor is he man enough to do it on his own. Orton claims he is an embarrassment not only to monsters before him even his brother Taker, but most of all....he is an embarrassment to Paul Bearer. Orton wins by DQ, but pays for it by getting tombstoned on the top of the ramp.
2014 Royal Rumble match
1.Daniel Bryan-Punishment by HHH to make him begin #1.
2.Bray Wyatt-Wyatt Family members join him as a 3 on 1 beatdown begins the match . Bryan holds off for a while til #s catch on as fans boo til countdown clock to next entry comes out.....
3.Roman Reigns-cheers roar as tease Shield vs Wyatt Family, but it is only Roman Reigns cleaning house. Both Bryan and Reigns clear the ring with them the only 2 remaining.
4.Jack Swagger-after such a positive reaction of Yes chants after Bryan and Reigns clear house, Zeb and We the People promo naturally draws heat.Zeb cuts a promo to buy time for another entry to help Swagger, but he doesn't state it in the promo.
5.Fandango-entrance lasted longer than his time in the ring.
6.Seth Rollins-Shield music hits and Reigns thinks it is Ambrose, but it is Rollins as they faceoff. Bryan knees Rollins as they go back to action.
10.Dean Ambrose-All 3 Shield members in the ring with faceoff with Ambrose and Reigns while Rollins tries to keep them together so they can work together.

22.Ryback-if Ryback is facing Goldberg or Lesnar in a future match....he better look strong which is the point as he eliminates everyone in his path til Cena arrives....
27.Goldberg-The music hits and Rybacks eyes don't leave the ramp. Fans chant for the real Goldberg and it is the real one. Ryback exits the ring through the ropes. Goldberg comes in and dominates with the biggest reaction being the spear on John Cena. Goldberg is the only man standing in the ring with Ryback on the outside of the ring. They lock eyes only for next entry's music hits.....
28.Brock Lesnar-Fans go nuts yet again, but Goldberg took focus off of Ryback waiting for Lesnar. Ryback comes from behind and eliminates Goldberg!! Lesnar attacks Goldberg after he was eliminated and F5s him on the floor knocking him out. Faceoff with Ryback until next entrys music hits......
