This was the 2010 Royal Rumble match.

This was lowkey one of the best Rumble matches ever. The first third of the match was dominated by CM Punk and his Straight Edge Society shenanigans. It was amazing stuff. The only way this match could have been better was if it was stretched out much deeper into the match (but Hunter gonna Hunter).

The biggest story of the Rumble ended up being Shawn Michaels’ quest to win the Rumble so that he could face The Undertaker one final time at Wrestlemania. There were lots of twists with this story including Shawn deciding to eliminate HHH about two-thirds of the way through the match.

Shawn ended up getting eliminated in shocking fashion by Batista when it came down to the final four. Shawn flipped out and started attacking referees. It was good stuff.

The winner ended up actually beingĀ Edge. He was out with an injury at the time and made his surprise return here. Edge looked (and probably was) physically broken, but it was a good idea to have him win to kick off Wrestlemania’s build in newsworthy fashion. He and Jericho of course went on to have an absolutely awful match, but you can win them all. (***3/4)
