This was the 2007 Royal Rumble match.

This was a really fun Rumble from beginning to end for the most part. They had a fair share of big names this time, and they generously threw them out all the while saving Shawn and Taker for the final third of the match. While you could talk about the pacing of this match and whatnot, this match is truly remembered and important for the final bit.

Rated-RKO did a great job of working together while organically teasing tension throughout the match. It came down to them against Shawn and Taker, and they did a great job of strategically attacking them. It seemed like Shawn was taken out, and that they had Taker on the ropes. Shawn recovered just in time to help Taker eliminate them.

Shawn and Taker then squared off in an infamous closing sequence. It was quite fun and an extremely effective tease of their future Wrestlemania match in 2009. Everyone should watch this Rumble. Taker ended up winning in the end in very satisfying fashion. (****)
