Worst Rumble ever?
Didn't even have any cool surprise entrants other than AJ who everyone already knew about.
BEST RR OF THE PAST FEW YEARS
>NXT GUYS COMMANDED THE RUMBLE
>ROMAN LOST THE TITLE AND DIDN'T BREAK REY'S RECORD
>DEAN REDDIT AMBROSE CONFIRMED HIS DEANETTY STATUS
>THE MIZ HIT HIS FINISHER
THE ONLY THING MISSED WAS ROLLINS CHANTS
The only gold Roman should wear is tag team belts with Dean and this is only because tag team belts are meaningless now,
Short of starting a genocide on blacks nothing Roman is going to do will put him over.
>He honestly thinks it was worse than the last few rumbles
I'm not saying it was the best, not even close, but it WAS an improvement.
Maybe this is the mark in me speaking, but AJ Styles was the best performer of the night. It was a pleasant surprise that he lasted so long.
I was really hoping for a HHH-Reigns handshake after they did their dick-measuring thing. Ramen hiding in the back for most of the Rumble was a heel tactic, so it's not like the turn would have been out of nowhere.
Borks elimination actually makes sense.
Giving the belt to a 46 year old who couldn't draw dime in his prime and had a terrible WM main event 14 years ago IN HIS PRIME doesn't make sense.
rumble itself was way fucking better than last year, it's just that no matter who won, you KNOW that roman will end up winning at mania. It literally doesn't matter if HHH won, or Dean, or whatever the fuck, Vince's dick will permanently remain locked and loaded towards roman as long as he's in charge.
In fairness, pretty much everyone else is injured.
It came down to 3 realistic possibilities for winners
Another Reigns Rumble victory would have been even WORSE than Triple H, and i'm admittedly speculating that they must be keeping Brock free for another fued (hopefully not Undertaker again). So Triple H was the only real choice, and even going into tonight he was favorite, despite not even being announced. But everyone and their dog knew he would be in it.
I have actually thought about who's going to face Haitch for Wrestlemania
I mean, if I remember correctly...
[spoiler]They hinted at a Haitch vs The Rock match at Wrestlemania.[/spoiler]
Will they do that for this one?
Styles was more likely.
Jericho didn't need it and would have been a creative dead end. They gave him the longest survivor position in the match (yeah, Ramen spent the longest between entry and elimination, but whatever) and that's probably all Jericho needs for whatever storyline he's going to be in.
It was pretty good senpai.
It was severely hindered by all that shit like they were leading up to reigns winning again, especially with him taking a huge break and coming back at 29.
And then this glorious motherfucker came in at 30, then a realization that he was going to lose to reigns to push him even more, except not. Then to top things off, they avoided putting the belt on yet another shield member not named Seth.
The best way it could've ended. The only thing I was a bit bummed about was AJ getting much.
>Triple H winning instead of someone exciting and actually interesting is a good thing
This "anyone but Reigns" mentality has lead to this retarded situation where le shovel man xD is now treated like a good choice. well done marks you're playing right into their stupid booking.
Reigns does not belong near the title as he is. Plain and simple. He's been pushed far too much, he needs time to just cool down and develop more. Yeah, he's been getting better, but the title scene isn't the place to do that.
Dean is fun, he's good, people like him, but I feel he will suffer being the wwe champion. Right now they have a lot of freedom with Dean, and that's a good thing.
The reason Triple H makes a good winner is because he's a temporary champion. They aren't going to keep the belt on him, and whatever face they choose to beat HHH will get a decent popularity boost.
It works out for everyone.
Vince is that you? Because you obviously don't understand wrestling.
It was one of the most watchable Rumbles in a very long time. Vast majority of the entrants had something about them, and relied less on shock entrants and spot monkey Kofi and more on good old battle royale psychology.
It's just that the end pissed all over it, and also gave away the plan for the next three months.
Christ, they're going to have to have Seth run in at Mania and win the belt at the last minute again.
A better rumble than the last two. Just too bad some people were almost immediately eliminated like Breeze and Swagger. It was cool Strowman eliminated Big Show by himself it shows they have plans for him. We could see more Wyatts vs Brock which could be interesting. And hopefully as someone said in a different thread we could see an IC ladder match with zayn, ambrose, styles and owens. Swagger and Henry made a good tag team on the preshow too. Just the first hour of raw is going to be triple H gloating so thats going to suck then twenty minutes of Roman demanding a rematch at fastlane or whatever.
