So who watched the Royal Rumble and what did you make of it?
The triple threat match was great, everybody came out of that looking better than when they went in. I knew Rollins was only really added so that he could take the fall and Cena doesn't, but he took the ball and ran with it. Reigns might have won the Rumble, but Rollins was the star of last night.
The Rumble itself was booked so poorly. Bryan lasting such little time was a slap in the face to the fans. Ziggler coming in at #30, eliminating Barrett and Cesaro then unceremoniously dumped out by two guys the crowd just don't care about anymore in a matter of minutes was poor. Such little depth in talent was clear for all to see. The Rumble match generally starts with two big/semi big names and/or feeds off of a current feud, this year we got The Miz and R-Truth. The WWE had to know after last years debacle that they need to go with someone the fans can get behind, Roman Reigns being forced upon the fans when he clearly isn't ready is going to backlash (doing this in Philly was also a terrible idea).
CancelWWENetwork was the number one hashtag worldwide.
Reigns will now get the Rocky Maivia treatment and I don't believe he is good enough to turn it around like The Rock did.
Also since they gave Ziggler that big Survivor Series moment what have they done with him? He has layed hot potato with the IC belt and been fired for two weeks. The booking is just awful.
