What Was Missing from the Royal Rumble?

The WWE Royal Rumble delivered on the thrills and surprises, and had a blockbuster main event to boot.  So, what was missing?

Not much could have been done to improve a hot first pay-per-view of the year, but the Royal Rumble didn’t have everything. 

As expected, Dolph Ziggler was the Royal Rumble workhorse, lasting longer than any other participant.  But where was his big moment?  After spending almost 50 minutes in the dance, Ziggler was thrown out in vain.  His performance will not go down in the annals of Rumble history. 

Randy Orton once again underwhelmed on PPV, but he seemed to miss an opportunity to take his frustrations out on the field, effectively turning heel. 

Newly crowned Divas champion Kaitlyn and the rest of the Divas roster were shut out from the PPV,  as no Divas match was booked.  Not even in the comedown slot. 

An otherwise outstanding Royal Rumble PPV was not without its flaws, once again proving that nobody is perfect.
