The Royal Rumble Match
Here we go for the main event.
The Miz drew #1. His old partner and rival R-Truth is #2. They two traded offense until Bubba Ray Dudley came out at as #3. Holy crap! The surprises are coming early tonight. The crowd is unglued as Bubba took control. Bubba and Truth did the old WASSUP spot on Miz. They then hit the 3-D on Miz. Bubba tossed Miz in a shocking move. Bubba then tossed Truth.
Luke Harper is #4. Bubba and Luke just traded hard shots as the crowd chanted “E-C-Dub.” Out next was Bray Wyatt. The two Wyatt Family members double teamed Bubba as the crowd chanted “We want D-Von.” The Wyatt Family toss Bubba. Curtis Axel is #6. But Erick Rowan attacked him from behind and took his spot. The three Wyatt Family members are now mid-ring. Rowan and Harper then both set their sights on Wyatt but it was a swerve and Harper and Wyatt double team Rowan. Wyatt tossed both his protégés.
The Boogeyman of all people drew #7. The two try to out psych each other with mind games and posturing. Wyatt then tossed Boogeyman quickly. Out next is Sin Cara. Not surprisingly Wyatt tossed him within the minute and a half time frame. With time to spare he led the crowd in “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” to kill time. Zack Ryder surprisingly is out at #9. I figured his injury would keep him out for awhile yet. He was surprisingly jacked up and hit a couple moves before Wyatt tossed him.
Now business picks up with Daniel Bryan as #10. Bryan took control right away and even busted out a top rope Frankensteiner. Fandango got #11. He surprisingly lasted the 90 seconds until Tyson Kidd came out. The ring begins to fill up as Stardust got lucky #13. Stardust and Fandango traded elimination spots. Bryan backflipped Kidd out. Bryan then hit Wyatt with a suicide dive through the middle ropes.
Diamond Dallas Page came out as a surprise entrant at #13. Page hit a Diamond Cutter on Stardust. Diamond Cutter to Fandango, who was on the top rope. Diamond Cutter to Wyatt. The halfway man is Rusev. Not surprisingly Rusev tossed Page quickly. He then tossed Fandango. Rusev and Wyatt faced off but they were caught by Bryan with a double dropkick from the top rope.
Wyatt then tossed Bryan in a huge shocker as he was hanging on the ring apron. That was a surprising elimination and took the sails completely out of the crowd. Goldust was out next. He and his brother Stardust battled back and forth. The Philly crowd chanted for “Daniel Bryan” as he left ringside. Kofi Kingston was next and crowd booed the mere sound of The New Day music. It’s all villains and Kingston in there right now. The crowd is still chanting “Daniel Bryan.”
Out next is Adam Rose. Kofi got tossed up and over by Rusev, but he landed on The Rosebuds who crowd surfed him back to the apron. Rusev then threw out Rose quickly. Rusev then head kicked Kofi off the apron to the floor. Roman Reigns drew #19. The crowd just booed the sound of his music too. Reigns quickly dumped both Goldust and then Stardust. Big E came out as #20.
Damian Mizdow is #21 and the crowd came alive. Miz tried to take his spot and get another shot at the Rumble. Reigns punched Miz in the mouth and so Mizdow ran in to take his rightful spot. He attacked both Wyatt and E and then got eliminated by Rusev quickly. Miz and Mizdow argued outside the ring and the crowd went back to booing. Next out was Jack Swagger. Surprisingly the crowd was for him. Ryback came out at #23. The crowd turned to chanting for CM Punk as Kane came at #24.
Dean Ambrose drew #25 and the crowd came alive for one of their favorites. The crowd is filling up now with a lot of lying around. And Titus O’Neil is #26. He won’t change things. He immediately got tossed by Reigns and Ambrose. He lasted four seconds. Bad News Barrett came out at lucky number #27. Cesaro got 28. The ring is really full right now, just waiting for something big to happen. Rusev dropkicked Big E out of the ring for an elimination.
The Big Show drew #29. Kane and Show tossed Ryback. Show then tossed Swagger. The announce team is really hyping up number of eliminations tonight. The final guy out is Dolph Ziggler. That woke the crowd up a bit. Ziggler superkicked both Kane and Show. He then hit them both with double DDTs. He then superkicked Barrett out of the match. Cesaro then hit the Giant Swing on Dolph. The crowd has gotten behind Ziggler.
Ziggler and Cesaro ended up on the apron and Ziggler superkicked Cesaro out. Ziggler came off the top and walked into a KO punch from Show. Show and Kane tossed Ziggler to loud boos. They then dump out Wyatt as a tandem.
It’s down to Reigns, Ambrose, Show and Kane as I somehow missed Rusev’s elimination. It’s turned into a tag team match now as Show and Kane battle the old Shield brothers. The monster duo dump out Ambrose together as the crowd is downright hostile right now. They are actively chanting “Bullshit” right now. Kane and Show then turned on each other and started brawling. They both tried to chokeslam each other so Reigns pushed them both out. The crowd is not happy. Kane and Show then came in and double teamed Reigns.
The Rock then ran out and attacked both Show and Kane and saved his cousin Roman Reigns.
They cleared the ring and Rock when to the outside, then Rusev popped up from the floor ands attacked Reigns. Reigns tossed him in short order to officially win the match.
WINNER – Roman Reigns
Post-match, Rock and Reigns embraced as Rock tried his damndest to get Reigns over with this crowd. Triple H and Stephanie then came out to the aisle to jaw with Rock and Reigns.
