This was the 2009 Royal Rumble match.
This match was way better than I remembered. It’s core issue (too many people left in the end after #30 came out) was still there, but everything before that made this a very watchable experience. There were a couple of fun surprises. The pace was great for the most part. Sure, Triple H vs. Legacy was a pretty uninspired way to end this one. This was just good enough though. (***)
