RAW Results – 1/30/12 GONG!

This post Royal Rumble RAW starts with music and pyro. Mr. John Laurinaitis to the ring, shaking hands with fans on his way there. King and Cole talk about Royal Rumble being historic and hopefully it will be for Laurinaitis tonight. Cole wants Laurinaitis to stay, King, not so much. Laurinaitis continued shaking hands around […]

25 Years of Rumble Winners – 2011 Alberto Del Rio

I know that this is a Royal Rumble winner that has and will get a lot of guff. Not the type of guff Benoit received, but still, more than most. I only have a few more hours to bask in my glory of having picked Alberto Del Rio, so I’m going to enjoy writing this […]

25 Years of Rumble Winners – 2010 Edge

I have to admit that I’m thrilled Edge won a Royal Rumble before his career was cut short. I will admit that I wasn’t a huge fan of Edge or Christian early on, meaning back in the Brood, even though I’ve always been a huge Gangrel fan. I know, it doesn’t make any sense. But […]

WWE Predicts – Royal Rumble

Why is the WWE being so secretive? All they have told us about the Royal Rumble is the undercard, that everyone is eligible to join the Royal Rumble Match and that Miz is the #1 entrant. Either they’re trying to tell us that someone already in a match will win the Royal Rumble Match, or […]

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 […]
