Adam’s Thoughts: Not a good night for Bayley in the ring. She seems to have been very shaken by the huge crowd inside the Alamodome tonight, repeatedly miss-timing spots with Charlotte. Decent opener, but definitely not on par with women’s matches we’ve seen in the last year at high profile events like this.

Adam’s Thoughts: Really good match between Owens and Reigns tonight. Owens took some nasty bumps that were borderline scary at times with how unpredictable things like that can go.

Adam’s Thoughts: Decent match between Neville and Swann tonight. Took some time for the crowd to get into it (much like a majority of the WWE audience with 205 Live). Neville hit some very impressive offense during the match. Maybe a more established talent as champion in the Cruiserweight division will help things.

Adam’s Thoughts: Another solid match between Styles and Cena. These guys have just incredible chemistry in the ring tonight. What absolutely awesome job by WWE to cool things off with Cena in the last few years and build to this 16-time title run as his career begins to wind down. Great call by WWE to give Cena this title run heading into WrestleMania.

Adam’s Overall Thoughts: A very good Rumble match this year from WWE. You could hear the collective gasp from wrestling fans by having Roman Reigns be a surprise final entrant tonight. Really surprised they went with another one-sided domination with Goldberg and Lesnar. Randy Orton winning tonight was definitely a surprise. Great show tonight by WWE.

  1. Watching the Kick Off show. Why the F••k is there a commercial break on the show I’m watching for the show I’m watching?

  2. The cruiserweight is being saved for a while in, so everyone can head to the concession stands. Cruiserweights now are to PPVs what the women’s matches were about 3 years ago.

  3. It will be strowman vs Reigns at wrestlemania. So i guess Undertaker might win rumble. Cause he can fight KO and after winning at wrestlemania Undertaker retires. And so there will be a tournament for universal championship again….

  4. Say what you want about Cena, that pick up for the second AA was pretty boss. What a match by both Cena and AJ.

  5. It was mainly for the commentators if anything. IT gave Cole a good break before calling an hour long match ad it helped Graves get a break as well.

  6. Because Goldberg not first entry
    And Kane is not here what the .
    I like the viper win but Goldberg Cheetah because Goldberg say I beat all 29 superstar I . Goldberg fack

  7. Before you IWC nerds complain about the lack of surprise entrants, realize they promoted with so many big names already announced so there really wasnt a need for surprise entrants this year. Now for the winner, Orton obviously is still very over with the crowd as told by the reaction and it does add a little bit of unpredictability into the title picture. I want to say WWE has learned from their mistakes and will not put Cena vs Orton in Mania (again) or Cena vs Bray (again). So that means somebody is going to get the strap. My first bet is Styles which would set up 3 SD matches (Wyatt vs Harper, Orton vs AJ, Taker vs Cena). All of these matches would be huge and draw a lot of money. While i know a lot of folks want guys like Zayn or Wyatt in the main event, you have to think what will draw in the most money and those “part timers” do just that.

  8. Thought Samoa Joe was gonna debut in the rumble and styles lost this night it’s just horrible except for the club winning the tag champs well deserved

  9. no samao joe, no nakamura, no kurt angle, no rey mysterio, no kenny omega, no bobby roode, no matt hardy, no jeff hardy, no… no… no… and cena (vince’s butt boy) wins, and orton wins the rumble… jesus .ing christ, what a shit show. . you vince, . you wwe.

  10. They took him off tv since Japan he’s not hurt he’s not on nxt tonight was suppose to happen guess we gotta wait til after mania

  11. I don’t like the way that rumble end.i like that Orton wins but reigns at no.30 l don’t like it. No surprise entrance by wwe.

  12. Your English should’ve been a surprise entrant in the rumble coz anyways it’s eliminated from your mouth

  13. They should’ve some controversial ending of Cena-Styles match….coz it was time for 16th reign….

  14. Again you said it was “supposed to happen”. No it wasnt. There was no ad that promoted him showing up. There was no announcement from the WWE brass to expect him tonight. There was stuff on the internet people read and worked up everyone’s hope. WWE under sells to over deliver, which means if you raise your expectations you will never get satisfied. But if you come in with an open mind then you can trust the process. It works every time.

  15. I don’t think that rumble match was up to the expectations….
    and Reigns at #30 was annoying….
    they should’ve sent someone from NXT…
    they got great points in the match but couldn’t build upon them….
    like after lesnar was eliminated…he should be beating goldberg very badly and throwing off top…
    wyatt assisting orton to win….
    new day break-up….
    KO to the aid of Y2J…
    and where the hell is Samoa Joe??

  16. Cena and AJ are giving is phenomenal matches…..
    at MITB
    then SummerSlam
    now RoyalRumble

    they are great together…

  17. yeah u r right….this show was not as great as it could’ve been!!!
    and I ,personally, never wanted Cena to win..

  18. finn balor should of been entered in the rumble and should of won it. Could of built him up nicely but they went the safe rout and chose Randy…lets pray this doesnt lead to Randy vs Cena….again…..

  19. I don’t like the ending of the rumble.cena vs styles and owens vs reigns match I like very much. No Nakamura, Samoa Joe in the rumble why?

  20. Balor: injured shoulder
    Angle: basically retired
    Matt and Jeff Hardy: under contract with TNA
    Kenny Omega: renogiating his contract with NJPW
    Bobby Roode: NXT Champion
    Nakamura: they ran an injury angle with him
    These guys sound like they would be exciting but when you actually break it down, expecting their appearances (other than Joe) was absolutely delusional

  21. yeah…..i was watching it on TV and roaring FINN…FINN…FINN…..but when reigns’ music hits…I was like….ohh plzzzz….not show his face again tonight!!!

  22. it’s the royal rumble, surprise entrants are part of the allure. the only surpise entrant was tye dillinger, whoop-dee-.ing-do. the only way in which i may be delusional is in my hopes that vince/wwe wouldn’t give us another pile of shit, yet that’s exactly what they did. their contempt for the fans is blatantly obvious. . ’em, . ’em all.

  23. Superb Pay Per View one of the best i ever seen great WWE rocks
    Randy Orton vs John Cena that will be awesome for Wrestlemania 33
    i can see some big matches for Wrestlemania 33
    1 John Cena vs Randy Orton
    2 Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar
    3 Roman Reigns vs Braun Strowman
    4 Triple H vs Seth Rollins

  24. I understand surprise entrants are a big thing but i just explained how everyone you expected made 0 sense and were impossible. Lesnar, Undertaker, Goldberg. Promote those 3 names and PPV buys go up. The WWE is more interested in people buying and paying than a few butt hurt fans like you because no matter what you know where you’re going to be on April 2 and I am sure you going to find another thing to complain about then. Shut it up, enjoy the product and move on

  25. oh, i’m sorry, president trump, i forgot that you’re god, and your opinion is the only one that counts.

    goddamn, dude, you’re an asshole. feel free to have the last word, because i have no interest in trying to converse with a self righteous prick, goodbye.

  26. My bet is on a triple threat AJ, Orton and Cena. I can’t see Cena dropping the title that quickly after such a long world title absence and I hope that WWE doesn’t feel it’s best to go the straight Cena / Orton route – as much as I dislike triple threat matches it seems to be highly likely to happen!

  27. Another title reign for Cena & another Rumble win for Orton. Bluuughhh! Glad I missed another one & didn’t waste money on this. “New Era” my ass.

  28. It must be a sad life being a TNA fanboy if that means you need to come here to run your mouth over a PPV you didn’t even watch.

  29. Seen Raw’s & SmackDown’s ratings & viewership numbers lately compared to what they were in years past & even compared to last year? Even during Wrestlemania season? Maybe WWE SHOULD start caring more about what turns off a lot of their fans instead of just writing them off as “butt hurt” then relying on Wrestlemania’s name value alone to carry them through the year.
    WWE is not too big to eventually fail.

  30. Okay general thoughts…

    Bayley vs Charlotte was meh

    Kevin Owens had a great match with Roman.

    Aj Styles vs Cena was great.

    Orton winning the title gives….interesting options. Wyatt could win at chamber and face orton which im ALL FOR seeing as Brays track record should be rewarded and they finally need to pull the trigger on him.

  31. It must be a sad life making yourself feel like a big man to run people down for their opinion. And FYI, I cancelled TNA on my DVR after that Tag Team Apocolypto thing and even said so on the Wrestleview review of that show. I only watch ROH, Lucha Underground, & New Japan at the moment. Know what you’re talking about before you type asshole.

  32. I’d like to say that Vince knows better than that but his original idea for the main event of WM 30 was HHH vs. Batista vs. Orton which he swore would be “the greatest main event in Wrestlemania history.” Luckily someone finally talked some good sense into his deranged mind but if Vince stays Vince, it might very well be another lame Wrestlemania.

  33. Did WWE Ever say Winner couldn’t choose which top title they could fight for?, cuz everyone assumes it’s Cena vs Orton or at least Orton for SD’s top title

    I think he elimmed Reigns last for a reason. (besides adding to the surprise as it seemed like Reigns was simply going to eliminate taker and then just waltz his way through his continued path of being shoved down everyone’s throat although it seems like 75-80% of people dont like him.)

    Not sure how they’d manage the timeline considering it’d be 3 people in short timespan.

    But I kinda see Reigns taking the title off Owens sometime soon
    Dispatching of Strowman somehow (Maybe just having a one-off and then Taker gets involved with Braun as when Taker first came back it showed Strowman watching intently in the back and they never even met in the rumble, unless plans have changed they must’ve done that for some reason)., and Orton faces Reigns at Mania

    Leaving Wyatt to feud on SD with his once loyal family member who he pushed too far, Orton will probably claim he used Wyatt to get where he is, adding more fuel to that feud as Wyatt sided with a manipulator rather then a man who was loyal to him to a fault. This feud would (likely) end with Wyatt winning but both men cementing their place, Bray finally single SD main eventer, whereas Harper goes to Midcard/Upper midcard act.

    Meanwhile, Owens flips out on Jericho after he loses his rematch (or possibly even before) Y2J claims they’re still the United States Champion, Owens sees no consolation in that saying WE are not the United States Champion, and WE were not the Universal Champion, I WAS! and that friendship leads to a mania match as well.

    That leaves me confused as to who would be in SD’s main event though, honestly I would not be surprised if Cena lost the title again at Elimination Chamber so he can try to break Flair’s record at Mania and if so Flair may manage whoever is facing Cena or run in… but that is a completely random thought pattern.

  34. Heck, knowing Vince’s behaviours, the fact that Cena beat AJ to tie it, and in my semi-random theory could also be the one Cena competes against to break it, it could be Vince’s passive-aggressive way to say ‘screw you’ to Flair for wrestling a few times in TNA after Shawn Michaels gave him such a good sendoff to retirement. Give him a big payday, but have him manage a man who was synonymous with TNA, as Cena breaks his record right before his eyes.

  35. What opinion? Did you see it? No? Then it is just oxygen wasted, certainly not an opinion of any substance. Not to mention that swearing doesn’t make your ‘opinion’ more valid nor is posting your wrestling fan street creds. What are you, 5 years old? Stick to your own advice: “Know what you’re talking about before you type”

  36. Another slap to the face of fans. Until fans stop patronizing the shitstorm and hit very low drop ratings, they will not mend their ways. For .’s sake stop watching for the meantime so they know they are doing something wrong.

  37. “The WWE is more interested in people buying and paying than a few butthurt fans like you bec. No matterwhat you know where you’re going to be on april 2”

    The cold hard cruel truth…it is painful. Preach it!

    This is why i do not even bother watch it anymore, i was rooting for goldberg but i knew in my my they pull up some twist shocker to troll the fans…and wouldn’t you know it, i was right. I just keep updated on wrestleview.

  38. He is not entirely wrong. With all these new talents on their roster, it wouldn´t hurt to see someone else but Cena or Orton on top again. He just words it like a 5 year old, so you got that point right, at least.

  39. Um, my opinion of dismay that they continue to make Cena & Orton the 2 top acts and that this “New Era” is so far nothing of the sort. Did I see it? No. Did I read about it here? Yes. Therefore I know enough about the Rumble to voice an opinion about it. See how that works simpleton? Maybe you’re the one who’s 5 years old or younger since you can’t wrap your mind around that.
    And yes, you’re still the one who should know what you’re talking about before you type. Because I’m negative about WWE, you assume with a false, childish conclusion that I must be a TNA fanboy; a false narrative so many other idiots like you on various other wrestling sites shriek whenever someone says anything negative about your holy sainted WWE.

  40. I guess its gonna be one hell of a battle at the 33th wrestlemania between my two favs randy orton and john cena ………… and its for sure that randy is gonna win this year no matter who his opponent is gonna be cuz he failed to win the match at WM 25 back in 2009 after winning the Royal Rumble.

  41. I said PPV buyrates and those arent going down right now so yes I am correct and until the point where the PPV numbers drop dramatically to where it is crippling the company, then no problem for the company.

  42. Are you talking network subscriptions? I ask because PPV buys aren’t comparable anymore now that the vast majority of viewers are network subscribers and so it’s difficult to compare with 9.95 a month which ones would still be buying PPV’s if they still had to pay full price so they could be going down or increasing – hard to know for sure. That said, their revenue, business model, network subscriptions overall, etc. is all increasing so to the overall point, difficult to see them changing when they keep seeing revenue increases.

  43. Because no one cares about the Cruiserweights. Gallagher is the only one who is mildly entertaining right now, and they put him out there for a quick comedy segment.

  44. Yes. It was said several times on RAW between Roadblock: End of the Line and Royal Rumble and several more times on Smackdown Live between TLC and Royal Rumble.

  45. You must have missed Takeover. They ran an injury angle there with Nakamura. As for Samoa Joe, he was never supposed to be part of the Royal Rumble. Joe being there was just speculation by numerous websites and fans.
