Winner – CM Punk via Shield’s help (The match was then reset instead of Punk being stripped)

Match 4b – CM Punk vs The Rock (WWE Title)

Winner – The Rock


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

Overall – Well…. That could’ve gone better but I’ve seen worse (Like last year’s rumble for instance), for the 25th anniversary, it didn’t say alot for itself, half of the matches were forgettable like the Divas match and Brodus/Drew match, the rumble itself was a bit of a mess but I am glad Sheamus is getting another big push although I suspected quite a few people wanted Jericho to win it since he was hyped for so long, sometimes I really wonder what path the WWE is actually going….

Overall – The rumble match itself was just a mess, it was one of the worst rumble matches in years! The divas match was also boring, only the Edge/Ziggler and Orton/Miz matches were worth watching but other than that, it wasn’t a good PPV at all.

Royal Rumble participants increase

January 17, 2011 Leave a comment


I just read on that this year’s WWE Royal Rumble PPV will have a participant change to it’s usual 30-man Royal Rumble match.


From what was said on the website, the participants in the Royal Rumble match will increase from 30 to 40 competitors. The website found this out from a twitter post by Joey Styles saying “The biggest Royal Rumble match in history” and hinting the increase from 30 to 40 wrestlers in the main event match at the PPV.


The wrestling website has concerns about this increase in participants and I don’t blame them really, more doesn’t always mean better, we will just have to wait and see how this plays out.
