25 Years of Rumble Winners – 2009 Randy Orton

While I hope Orton doesn’t return to win the 2012 Royal Rumble Match, he did a great job with it in 2009. I have been very impressed with Orton’s career. He took what he had, genetics and the in through his grandfather and father, and took it to a whole new level. I will admit […]

25 Years of Rumble Winners – 2008 John Cena

In October 2007 John Cena completely tore his pectoral muscle and was said to be out of action for six months to a year. Three months later he was a surprise entrant in the Royal Rumble Match and somehow won it as he entered as #30. While many people think the WWE gives Cena everything […]

25 Years of Rumble Winners – 2007 Undertaker

I can’t believe it took so long for the Undertaker to win a Royal Rumble! I mean I know it didn’t happen as I’ve written about them all so far, but it seems as though Taker should have won the Royal Rumble well before this point as he’d been in the WWE since 1990! There […]

25 Years of Rumble Winners – 2006 Rey Mysterio

I really thought Rey had a chance to win the 2005 Royal Rumble as he lasted through most of the match. Okay, I never really thought Rey would win, except after he lasted so long in the previous Royal Rumble Match. It’s that whole cruiser weight thing. VKM loves the bigger wrestlers and seems to […]

25 Years of Rumble Winners – 2005 Batista

Coming after the last article and how it ripped at my heart, I hope this one will be easier for all of us. I will admit that I’ve never been the hugest Batista fan. I will fully admit that he is one fine specimen and is very easy on the eyes, but while he has […]

25 Years of Rumble Winners – 2004 Chris Benoit

Before I started this Royal Rumble series I talked to Richard about it and he gave me the go ahead. Then after thinking about it and talking about it a bit I went back and asked Richard about this specific Royal Rumble and he gave me the go ahead to write it the way I […]

TNA/IW Blog Zone – Sting Chokes Out Hardy?

I’m sorry if I sound like a broken record, but Hogan has been opening his mouth, so I’m going to say something about it. I’m going to take Hogan’s recent antics as further proof that Dixie Carter doesn’t know what the heck she is doing in the business world. Hogan has spent much of the […]

25 Years of Rumble Winners – 2003 Brock Lesnar

I have to admit that I’m not really looking forward to writing this Royal Rumble. I have never been a Brock Lesnar fan, even before he threw over the WWE for the NFL. I’m glad he’s happy with where he is in life, with Rena (Sable), and I’m thrilled that he’s healthy as I know […]

25 Years of Rumble Winners – 2002 Triple H

This is a time in the WWF that I have been waiting to write about, but also nervous about. I have written quite a few articles about the Royal Rumble winners in the WWF, but it was during the prior year that the Invasion had ended (May through November 2001) and the court case with […]

25 Years of Rumble Winners – 2001 Stone Cold Steve Austin

Ah, another Stone Cold Steve Austin winning Royal Rumble! This was his third and final Royal Rumble Match win. Austin is the only wrestler to win three Royal Rumbles, 1997 and 1998. As we all know so much about Austin’s history, and if you don’t you can check out articles on his previous Royal Rumble […]

25 Years of Rumble Winners – 2000 The Rock

I have learned so much from writing each of these articles. I remember a lot of these matches, a lot of these feuds, a lot of what was going on with the WWF and WCW, but looking into it the way I have been, watching some of the matches to make sure the info I […]

RAW Is Blogged – A Crash Test Dummy?

There’s so much back and forth about Cena’s character – should he turn heel or should his character be tweaked? I know that Cena’s character now, well, up until much of the Kane stuff, was just downright horrid! Something had to be done and hopefully the changes we’ve been seeing in Cena will continue. Honestly, […]

RAW Results – 1/23/12 Will Laurinaitis Be Fired?

This go home to Royal Rumble RAW starts with music and pyro. In Ring Segment CM Punk out to the ring with a glowing smile on his face. He poses and smiles all around. Chants for Punk, so he sits and enjoys. He talks about Royal Rumble and a huge WWE Championship Match for us. […]

25 Years of Rumble Winners – 1999 Vincent Kenedy McMahon

I have to admit that this is s Royal Rumble that I haven’t been looking forward to. It’s nothing against Vincent Kennedy McMahon. I love and respect the man for much of what he’s done, in the wrestling industry and outside it, and I know it worked perfectly into the storyline at that point for […]

25 Years of Rumble Winners – 1998 Stone Cold Steve Austin

This is the third time I start a Royal Rumble winners article with a two time winner. It seems as though the WWE finds something that’s working well and runs with it rather than giving someone new coming up through the ranks a chance. Sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn’t (Alberto Del Rio), but it […]
