It has been awhile since I had the ability to write. This is also the first time in years I will watch any pro wrestling, especially live events. However, the Royal Rumble was always my favorite event, so tonight I will give a running commentary of what I think of the event. This will be updated thru the evening.
All time US Eastern Standard Time, military style
1813: This Lacey Evans commercial is making me reconsider if returning to watching was a bad idea.
1836: here comes our first match, and instead of eye candy we get eye liver.
1851: This match should not have been that ugly. Can’t say as I’ve seen anything that would bring me back.
1856: I have always loved these Royal Rumble retrospectives, but with so many Rumbles everything seems truncated now.
1906: I thought I had already resubscribed? Oh well, I am officially a returning member and now it’s OLDBERG! OLDBERG!
1912: Cool entrance for McIntyre. WWE has always had good production.
1919: That was nice and quick. Then again, Goldberg matches have always been better short.
1939: An okay women’s match. Only a matter of time before Sasha leaves for Hollywood.
1947: Once again, rap music is a contradiction in terms.
1954: Bayley could conceivably be the 1st woman to win the Rumble from the #1 draw,
2001: With Shotski I have finally found the perfect woman for my little brother.
2006: Love Jillian Hall. I even have her theme song on my iPod…don’t ask.
2025: So much for Bayley winning
2029: 24/7 WTF!!!
2056: Fun womens match. I do note that they no longer have the girls wear makeup. Probably to make them look more serious, but if you want more viewership the male gaze should be considered.
2107: David Arquette was already off the hook; Tony Schiavone, not so much.
2129: OUCH. I bet he feels a bit…run downed…at the moment.
2145: That was one heck of a match.
2210: the Archer of Infamy? Running out of cool nicknames, I see.
2216: Time to kill da wabbit at #17
2230: Yes, Christian!!!
2248: Hot Damn, someone I give a damn about has won the Rumble!
CONCLUSION: Overall, I enjoyed myself. I might keep the Network just to see what happens thru Mania, but I doubt if I will continue past then. I don’t think there is enough depth for me to watch on a weekly basis.
