Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 2.17.21 PM

The road to Wrestlemania is officially underway as the 2017 Royal Rumble has a winner. Perhaps the second biggest WWE event of the year, the winner of the Rumble goes on to the main event of Wrestlemania to challenge the Champion on the grandest stage of them all. This 29th Royal Rumble took place in San Antonio, Texas at the Alamodome and had over 50,000 people in attendance. Before the Rumble match itself, there were several championship matches with interesting outcomes, which should tell the tale of what’s to come at Wrestlemania 33 in April. Now here’s a taste of the good, the bad, and the ugly of the Royal Rumble 2017.

WWE: Who Will Win the 2017 ‘Royal Rumble’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 20th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

WWE-Royal-Rumble-2017-1-670x388

It’s the MOST wonderful time of the year! No, not the holidays! It’s time for the Royal Rumble, which takes place in January and paves the way for the main event at Wrestlemania every year. Well at least for the last 30 years it has. The Royal Rumble is a Pay-Per-View put on by WWE every year with the Royal Rumble match consisting of 30 superstars entering the ring every 90 seconds. The only way to be eliminated is if you’re thrown over the top rope and your feet land on the ground until one is left in the ring standing. That one winner goes on to the main event at Wrestlemania to challenge the Champion on the grandest stage of all.

WWE: Possible Scenarios at the 2016 ‘Royal Rumble’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 24th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

maxresdefault

THE ROYAL RUMBLE ITSELF

One of the WWE’s most electrifying events is the ‘Royal Rumble’. Since the 1980s, WWE has been using the Royal Rumble match and PPV as the pre-cursor to Wrestlemania. In this match, anything is possible, as 30 wrestling superstars enter the ring in 90 second intervals. The only way to win the match is to throw the other 29 opponents over the top rope of the ring and be the last man standing. Over the years, there has been many surprises. Vintage wrestling superstars have entered the contest as well as underdogs. Sure, being the first entrant is the most difficult and being the 30th entrant is the easiest, as time is on your side, but that doesn’t stop you from winning usually.

WWE: Royal Rumble 2015 Recap! It’s All About Family

by Angelic Heel on Jan 26th, 2015

Angelic Heel Here…

The Royal Rumble is one of the most exciting matches that the WWE presents to its fans. It’s a 30 man over the top rope battle royal where the winner is guaranteed a shot at the WWE World Heavy Weight Title at Wrestlemania. The 2015 Royal Rumble event in Philadelphia, PA  saw championships defended, new comers prove why they are the best, and that family will always help family. The night was filled with nail biting matches, heart stopping suspense, and an ending that had the Philly fans expressing themselves as only they can. Let’s begin the Road To Wrestlemania and try not to get thrown over the top rope as we look at the 2015 Royal Rumble!

Angelic Heel Here…

The Royal Rumble is the perhaps one of the most anticipated live events of the WWE. It kick starts the road to Wrestlmania and has one of the most exciting matches that fans can look forward to witnessing. Philadelphia, PA plays host to the  2015 Royal Rumble and it is expected that it will be a night to remember. Besides the 30 man Rumble and all its surprises, we also have the tag titles being contested,  but most importantly, we have the triple threat match for the World Heavy Weight Title!

One thing that you should know about me is that I love the Royal Rumble. To prepare for Sunday’s event, I watched an unhealthy number of Royal Rumble matches (read: all the Royal Rumble matches) over the past 30 days. At this point I pretty much view all situations as 30 man over-the-top battles royale.

This installment of Smackdown saw 4 Superstars blessed by the Authority, with the opportunity to qualify for the Royal Rumble match. Who made it? Who failed failed to qualify? Let’s find out!

The Rock is the new WWE Champion, and this guy and I are pissed off about it – CLICK HERE TO SEE HOW PISSED OFF WE ARE!!

Yes, The Rock was my favorite WWE performer in wrestling’s heyday at the turn of the millennium. But in 2003, Dwayne Johnson left WWE to become the thinking man’s Vin Diesel. He used his success as a WWE Superstar to springboard into movies, and that’s great. But CM Punk doesn’t want to springboard anywhere. CM Punk wouldn’t trade the WWE Championship for a featured role in the Fast and Furious franchise, and no one looks at CM Punk and thinks “Oh yeah, the strong man’s William H. Macy.”

Written By: Bryan Kluger

Wrestlemania 34 is less than 6 months away with Survivor Series and Royal Rumble just around the corner. I do believe that the goal is to have Brock Lesnar in the main event at Wrestlemania 34 with the title in hand. I also believe he aims to lose that title on April 8, 2018 as well. Just not to the usual suspects (Reigns, Strowman, Joe).

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

screaming_taker.0

One of the biggest pay-per-views of the year is ‘Summerslam‘, only second to ‘WRESTLEMANIA‘. This ‘Summerslam‘ marks the 28th Summerslam event for the WWE Corp, and featured quite the card. There were some excellent matches throughout the night, however, some of them ended unfavorably, but each WWE superstar put on an excellent show last night even if there were some mis-steps.

Due to Snowmageddon, WWE had no choice but to cancel the RAW live event just 24 hours after one of the most controversial Royal Rumble pay per views in recent memory. Even though Hartford, CT would not be the scene of destruction it was meant to be, it was declared that the show must go on, and it did from the WWE Headquarters in Stamford, CT. The WWE Universe was addressed by the WWE Superstars that they were dying to hear from following the Royal Rumble event, and those who missed it, got treated to the Royal Rumble match itself (shown in its entirety) and the Triple Threat match for the World Heavy Weight Title (best match of the night.) Who had what to say and to whom? Let’s find out!

I have been chomping at the bit for the weeks leading up to this one and the main roster had a lot to live up to following the developmental brands NXT Takeover: R Evolution. What worked?
