Royal Rumble 2015

This year’s Royal Rumble was as controversial as ever with the crowd voicing their displeasure with some of the booking.  However, it was still a reasonably good PPV but not one of WWE’s best.

The main event itself was always gonna be fun and featured a ‘one off’ return from Bubba Ray Dudley and some good individual performances especially from Bray Wyatt.  Of course the ending was booed out of the building but that is a story for another day.

Supporting bouts included the New Age Outlaws taking on the Ascension.  Konnor and Viktor’s new image makes them look like second rate Road Warriors, lets hope Creative changes this soon. The Usos took on Damien Mizdow and The Miz in a Tag Team Championship belt.  Nattie and Paige fought The Bellas and in a cracking Triple Threat Cena, Rollins and Lesnar fought over Lesnar’s WWE Championship. This match I believe has cemented Rollins as a major player for years to come.

Extras wise, on the DVD there is some backstage segments as well as the kick off show bout between The New Day and Cesaro/Kidd.  Blu-ray owners for a couple of extra quid get more matches from Smackdown and Raw as well as other bits ‘n’ bobs.
