WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross updated his blog at JRsBarBQ.com with his thoughts on last night’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
General Thoughts: “Enjoyed watching the Royal Rumble on PPV as the show closing last few minutes really made the show for me. Without question, the Rumble match was the overwhelming attraction of the evening.”
Orton-Sheamus: “The Atlanta crowd seemed to favor Randy Orton in RKO’s failed attempt to regain the WWE Title. Sheamus seems to be one of the handful of stars w/o a tattoo as my wife noted. I enjoyed the WWE Title bout because it was a fresh match. Orton/Legacy issues will be fun to follow. I thought I had it figured out but now I’m not so sure.
CM Punk’s Recruiting: “CM Punk had a memorable Rumble match. Great mic work. Punk’s hairy chest, as I pointed out during the show on Twitter, makes him look even more like a villain. Punk had a stellar night.”
Edge’s Surprise Return: Edge was the obvious major surprise of the night. I admire how hard Edge has obviously worked to be able to return to the ring ahead of schedule. Edge was the star of the night and him winning the Royal Rumble disrupts the Road to Wrestlemania and makes February’s Elimination Chamber PPV more intriguing. That PPV is only 3 weeks way. I like the episodic way that several issues are progressing.
