——————————

Overall – A pretty predictable result for this PPV but nevertheless, I enjoyed it, had it’s moments in all of the matches although the tag team title match was pretty much just a filler to prepare for the main event that is the Royal Rumble match

I wouldn’t have minded who won the Royal Rumble but in the back of my head, I just knew that John Cena would win it, he himself said that 2013 will be the year of Cena, thus the WWE make him the superhuman to make him dominate, plenty of surprises during the match too including Kofi Kingston once again defying the usual laws of the RR match by avoiding to touch the floor with excellent athleticism

The Rock/Punk match was predictable for me, I knew Rock would win it, otherwise there would be no point for him to go full time until Wrestlemania, so this title win for him will give me something to go back and give a reason to go full time till Mania….

Next stop – Elimination Chamber
