So, that's the Royal Rumble been and gone again for another year. What did we all think?
I thought it was leaps and bounds ahead of last year's Rumble which I thought was an utter disaster and nearly made me skip checking out Wrestlemania had it not been for the novelty of a Stone Cold match in 2022 and Cody Rhodes debuting. I really enjoyed the Men's Rumble a lot. I felt the star power was so much better than last year which was filled with so many lads who made me say "who the fuck are you", whereas this year felt pretty stacked throughout. Gunther was easily the standout for me and that mini-match he had with Cody at the end of genuinely had me biting on a few of the false finishes.
The Women's Rumble had that problem of me going "who the fuck are you" with quite a lot of the entrants, but I enjoyed the ending of the Rumble and also very much appreciated Zelina Vega coming out as Juri from Street Fighter.
Bray Wyatt's match was predictably shite, and the women's title match was a throwaway one, but I loved the Roman Reigns match and thought the aftermath was some of the best storytelling WWE has done in a long time. Really interested to see how that story is going to pan out over the next couple of months.
