The was the GREATEST Royal Rumble match.

A big part of the magic of the Royal Rumble is that it’s the kickoff point to the ROAD TO WRESTLEMANIA~! blah blah blah. Kind of just doing it for the sake of doing it is ehh.

Anyway, this match was super watchable because it’s a Rumble and WWE generally knows how to lay him out. However, the total lack of stakes in this one definitely sucked something out of it.

There were some good points though like Daniel Bryan working the entire match and actually doing shit throughout instead of one of the typical “marathon performances” that get put over every year. Bobby Lashley completely bombed and fucked up a ton of things. Titus O’Neil tripped during his entrance and slid into the ring, and it was impossible to tell if it was on purpose or not. The Great Khali took a fucking brutal bump to the floor. Roderick Strong and Rey Mysterio got to interact. Braun threw Shane off something high. All of these things are good and made this not a total waste of time. [BRAUNNNNN won.] (**3/4)
