Wow! Just Wow! Tonight was a long night. The Men’s Royal Rumble Match, while good and, glad to see Shinsuke Nakamura win, was a bit lackluster when it came to surprise entrants with only two. Usually, there would be a lot more than that. The other matches, well, the two “Main” Championship matches should’ve been better. Especially the Triple Threat one. There was a lot of destruction, no doubt about it, but Brock needs to drop the belt so that it can be defended normally, NOT when Brock wants to.

As for the WWE Championship Match, it was a bit better, but not much. The best match of the night by far was the First ever 30-Woman Royal Rumble Match! I think that despite Asuka being everyone’s favorite and, knowing that she would win the whole thing, there were a lot of surprises. Including at the end with the reveal of the newest member of the WWE Women’s Division: “The Hot Rod” Ronda Rousey! There were rumors that she was going to show, even compete, but no. That was a surprise in itself.  The “Road to Wrestlemania” has just begun and it’s getting hot! That’s it for me. The next time will be February 25th for the RAW Exclusive “Elimination Chamber” from Las Vegas! See ya then!
