The High’s and Low’s of the WWE Royal Rumble 2015

Sunday night’s Royal Rumble was a roller coaster of action, emotions, and drama. At one point, the show peaked with, literally, one of the best triple-threat matches ever witnessed.

Despite the vitriol being spewed toward the WWE the last 24 hours, there were...

No Riot Necessary: Just Unsubscribe from the WWE Network

The winners of the matches never deserve the vitriol from fans. They're just toy soldiers in Vince McMahon's backyard sandlot, getting gunned down when he decides they should be gunned down. Just so happens that one of the soldiers was fragged by a pyrocentric television last month.

Royal Rumble abomination follows triple threat masterpiece

It was like the 2014 Royal Rumble never happened, a dream or a mirage – gone and never to be remembered by Vince McMahon as a night his company got things so terribly and obviously wrong.

WWE News: #CancelWWENetwork Trends On Twitter After Bitter Rumble Finish

You would have thought that WWE would have learnt their lesson from the 2014 Royal Rumble event. A show that fan’s showed no interest in the WWE World Championship match between Randy Orton and John Cena; and by not having Daniel Bryan compete in the match, with the very obvious and lazy booking of Batista winning the match. Last night fans in Philadelphia, voiced their disgust...

Royal Rumble: Triple Threat Title Match Steals Show

Thanks to a Philadelphia crowd that sucked all the energy out of the Wells Fargo Center after Daniel Bryan was eliminated, the main event of the WWE’s Royal Rumble was a bit of a disappointment this year.

The Royal Rumble – AKA ….Why did they do that?

The WWE loves to drop the ball on the biggest stages. This year’s Rumble should serve as another example of that.

Here’s who will win at the Rumble, and what the fallout will be. The New Day vs...
