There’s nothing I love more than the Royal Rumble. It’s simply the most fun match in all of wrestling. The tropes, the near eliminations, the surprise entrants. It’s a match that launches careers and made a thousand memories over the years.
So as we lead up to the Rumble this year, I’ll be reviewing each Rumble match. One per day. I love the way these are time capsules for their year. I love that “wait, that guy was still around?” feeling you get. I love seeing wacky, short-lived gimmicks.
So join me in this nostalgia trip. I promise it will be fun. And the nice thing about the Rumble is that when you get a bad entrant, there’s another one coming in 90 seconds.
