The Royal Rumbler 2007 (1/28/07)
So with the Royal Rumble Approaching fast, I wanted to offer my pre-show notes. I won't be able to watch the Royal Rumble this year, but I will figure it out sooner or later.
Royal Rumble Match:
Thirty main, over-the-top-rope battle royal.
WWE RAW: Shelton Benjamin, Carlito, Kenny Dykstra, Edge, Ric Flair, Jeff Hardy, Chris Masters, Shawn Michaels, Johnny Nitro, Randy Orton, Viscera, The Great Khali, Super Crazy
WWE SmackDown!: Chris Benoit, Finlay, Chavo Guerrero, Matt Hardy, Kane, King Booker, The Miz, MVP, The Undertaker, Gregory Helms
ECW: Hardcore Holly, CM Punk, Sabu, The Sandman, Rob Van Dam, Kevin Thorn, Tommy Dreamer
- I personally love the Royal Rumble, when it's not aware to me who's going to win. Lets just say 10 guys WILL NOT WIN! 10 of them don't even have a chance. There is no way that THE MIZ is going to Wrestlemania for the World Wrestling Federation Title. There's just no way. MVP isn't either. They can either make or break fueds though. I'd like to see MVP eliminate Kennedy...but guess what? He's not there. So I'll get back to this later. No ECW will win.
John Cena (c) vs. Umaga in a Last Man Standing match
-The WWE has been known to create great guys then squash them when the chips are down. Will Umaga really walk out of the Rumble with the title? NO. That's an emphatic NO! There is no Chance in Hell that UMAGA is going to win this match. Sure he's tough, but if Cena loses, he'll have to chase the title, which no one wants to really see now a days. At least no major Adult in the audience wants to see that. Umaga in general would look weak if he loses this match. However, it would be nice if Great Khali made his presence felt in this match.
World Heavyweight Championship:
Batista (c) vs. Mr. Kennedy
-KENNEDY! KENNEDY! I believe that MVP has an interference all over this, setting up KENNEDY vs. MVP at No Way Out! Does that mean that MVP is going to win the Rumble? Or does this mean that MVP messes up the title match because Kennedy gets him eliminated? Or does MVP get eliminated because Kennedy has a vendetta from that Last Blood Match? Or will Batista win clean? I think clean as a whistle and Kennedy goes down a notch. Although Kennedy would be a much greater championship.
Bobby Lashley vs. Test
-Test sucks, Lashley can't talk on the mic. ECW sucks. I hate this matchup. At least the divas aren't involved yet.
The Hardys vs. MNM
MNM sucks, however The Hardys can carry a match like no other and they still get more cheers than any one other tag-team in the industry. Even if Team 3-D and the New Age Outlaws were to return to the WWE, they still wouldn't get as many cheers as the hardy's do these days. Their match at the ECW ppv left little to be desired. At this match I see a DQ for excessive force on one member of the Hardy's making a mask to be worn and a major set up for No Way Out with a final TLC match set for Wrestlemania!
This all sets up for an above average ppv, but I have to wait to see it because I don't have cable and I won't have PPV for a long time.
