WWE: Shawn Michaels Should Have Been Included in the 2012 Royal Rumble
Gentlemen, we all have fine choices this evening. The Royal Rumble was a great match. We saw historic wrestlers come and go (Mick Foley, Road Dogg, Jim Duggan. Booker T) and the final four was a pretty good mixture of current WWE superstars (maybe with the exception of Big Show where Wade Barrett should have been in there).
But if we are looking at wrestlers who should have been in the match, and we saw some great competitors, why wasn't "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels included in the match on the 25th Anniversary of the event?
Besides the fact Michaels, one of the most decorated champions ever and maybe the most popular wrestler the WWE has ever witnessed, has won the Royal Rumble from the first position, he also has feuded with the all the top wrestlers in the WWE.
The method behind my madness is simple with this plea; if the WWE can celebrate the splender of the match, and the importance of the victors from the past, then Michaels deserves to be in the match and possibly in the finals.
More so than Jerry Lawler, more so than Booker T, more so than Kharma and Mick Foley.
Maybe it is another missed opportunity in the minds of creative and its writers.
The Royal Rumble and WrestleMania are arguably the two best and biggest PPV events put on by the WWE and it should have the best represented in it. Last night was great in combining the past with the present. Yes, the likes of Kane, The Undertaker, Christian, Triple H, Steve Austin and The Rock should all have been included in the plans for the evening.
The WWE was right in allowing special moments like Jerry Lawler, Kharma and Booker all getting to compete in a match like this. But if we are really talking about talents and those who can compete in a main event like WrestleMania, then the only right thing to do is bring the best to the forefront and allow them to all compete. We could have done without Alex Riley, Epico, Kharma, Michael Cole, Primo and Ricardo Rodriguez last night.
Legends deserve their place in the sun. But in reality, more legends and current stars who have a true shot at the title should have been included.
But missing out on the "Show Stopper" may be the one thing this past PPV event will regret in the future. Everyone should have had a chance to see his greatness one more time.
