The Royal Rumble match was great in itself. The result of who won, though fairly obvious, was bush league.
There were many great surprises in the Rumble match. Chris Jericho returned and entered No. 2, which was a great surprise for all.
Goldust had a great showing, another move which was super surprising. I really think they should bring back Goldust for WrestleMania season for a rivalry with his brother Cody Rhodes, a match many have called for.
The Godfather made a brief, but amazing comeback. He got a huge pop, showing his popularity from the Attitude Era.
Bo Dallas was booked well and looks like he may get a push right from the get-go. He eliminated Wade Barrett, who re-entered to eliminate him. This may create a big rivalry for the youngster.
Kofi Kingston did his typical spot in the Rumble where he used loopholes in the rules to stay in the match. It was very cool as he used Tensai to keep his feet from the ground and then pogoed with JBL's chair back to the apron.
What was troubling is WWE's insistence on ensuring that babyfaces are dominant. Four of the last five participants were the top four babyfaces in WWE.
The final three were Sheamus, Ryback and John Cena. Why couldn't one top heel be at least final two?
So here is the WWE's chance to give Ryback the momentum back he has lost in the Shield storyline. Instead, they give it to Cena, who doesn't need to win the Royal Rumble or the Money in the Bank ladder match last year or to bury Dolph Ziggler on back-to-back Raws.
I won't penalize the entire match for Cena winning.
