Or from a wrestling stand point, two of the greatest ever, at the biggest PPV for the WWE title.
My thoughts on the Royal Rumble:
ADR vs. Big Show: Cena vs. Batista 2
It's Jericho! genuinely marking out at the time.
It's Goooldust! mark out moment 2.
There was a moment when Barrett, Bryan, Cesaro, Sheamus, Jericho and Ziggler were all in the ring with Cena and Dallas and I thought "there's only two of these men I don't want to see win"...
Kane was screwed out of the most eliminations record again!
Ryder's SIIIICK Rough Rider to Ziggler.
Ziggler deserved to make it to the final 4, I was disappointed when he didn't.
Boooo. Cena won. Instantly know the result of The Rock vs. CM Punk. :(
Third best moment of the night: CM Punk putting the Spanish announce table back together
Had the table not broken surely The Rock would have been disqualified? There was no stipulation in their match and a Rock Bottom through a table has to be a DQ.
Lights out. OHMAHGAWD it's The Undertaker! Oh hang on, it's just The Shield.
Boooo. Dwayne wins.
Special mentions to The Miz for looking decidedly awful in the preshow match but props for working the rumble match injured. Also to Rhodes and Goldust, Barrett and Dallas for their interesting spots in the match.
I was raging when the PPV ended but after calming down, Cena had a really bad year last year so a Rumble win isn't as terrible as it feels. Even if there are a lot of guys who could do with the rub. CM Punk not being champ opens up a possible match with The Undertaker at Wrestlemania, could be a doozy. Cena vs. The Rock 2 may not be the shoe-in some of us (myself included) first thought and while I'm pissed off that Dwayne gets to devalue the WWE Championship I'll still be watching to see what happens next...maybe not live though so I can fast forward the inevitable BS promos the golden boys will be making on Raw.
Does anyone think we'll see Hell No drop the titles this week? And if so, to who? Car Sterio? I like Sandow and Rhodes but I really want Cody to feud with Goldust. Can't have the cake and eat it too I suppose.....hang on - why not? ;)
As far as I can see, the team of Mysterio anc Cara is over.
