This year’s Royal Rumble was, for the most part, awesome! It was good to see surprises like Kelly Kelly, Mighty Molly, Beth Phoenix (I hope she’s ok, by the way), Santino (Santina) Marella but, the biggest surprise of the night was the return of Edge! I always look forward to seeing who will show up during the Rumble matches themselves. Wondering who is going to show up, who gets eliminated and everything.

The men’s match, while still good, started out slow, as you had Brock Lesnar not only starting at number one, but everyone that had gotten in the ring with him, was tossed out right away. There weren’t even any heroics from Kofi Kingston this year. Which was a bit disappointing. After Lesnar got eliminated, man did things pick up and get better. Seeing Edge compete was a huge surprise,and he can still go. Having Drew McIntyre win it was the right call,as he deserves the spot.

The women’s match was just as good, with even more surprises. I have already mentioned them already and, I thought that Shayna would win, or someone else, other than Charlotte, but it is what it is.

The one bad match of the night, as there always seems to be at least one nowadays, was the Strap Match for the Universal Championship between “The Fiend” and Daniel Bryan. Interesting concept, not well executed. I’m tired of “The Fiend” “getting bored” during the match and just taking hits like they are nothing. I get it, but come on.  At least the men’s Royal Rumble match was half way decent , got better after Lesnar was eliminated, but still, Lesnar somewhat impressed me. So far, its been a luke warm start of the year. That being said, it was the first PPV of the year and a long way to go before “Wrestlemania”. Speaking of which, the next time I come around with another report will be after “WWE Elimination Chamber” which will be on March 8th from Philadelphia, Pa. See ya then!
