The Law Reviews: Royal Rumble 2017

wwe_royal_rumble_2017-0

This shapes up as the most interesting Royal Rumble in years. It probably has the most star power of any Rumble since 2008. Goldberg is on fire. Undertaker being in the match for the first time since 2009 is intriguing. Brock Lesnar is still The Beast. Braun Strowman is getting a monster push. And with two world titles, there’s an added sense that anyone could win.

Venue looks beautiful. I love dome shows, just makes things feel more important. Big crowd, looks like they sold almost all the of the available seats (set obstructs a large number).

Royal Rumble 2014

Yeah, it’s the one where they screwed up with Daniel Bryan. The first time. This was a challenging time for WWE, discontent both in front of and behind the camera was bubbling over. Batista returned on the Raw before this and popped a big rating. He got a good response from the audience. But no one wanted to see him in the main event of Wrestlemania this year.
