Royal Rumble Match - A highly entertaining Royal Rumble with great performances by Jericho and Matt Hardy. Apart from the predictable ending it was one of the best rumbles in years. 8/10
WWE Championship Match - Kurt Angle vs. Chris Benoit - Match of the year. Perfect technical wrestling from two of the best in the WWE. Great ending with lots of near falls and submissions. Both men deserved the standing ovations at the end of this match. 10/10
World Heavyweight Championship Match - Triple H vs. Scott Steiner - From match of the year to bore of the year, this match is a total mess. With Steiner only using two moves and Triple H unable to carrying Steiner. They both deserved the boos and boring chants they got during the match. 0/10
Torrie Wilson vs. Dawn Marie - The end of the laughable Al Wilson saga. Another awful match from two who can't wrestle. At least this one is over quickly. 0/10
World Tag Team Championship Match - Lance Storm & William Regal vs. Dudley Boyz - Typical stardard tag team match which was nothing new but passable. 5/10
Brock Lesnar vs. Big Show - Brock does well here to carry Big Show in a watchable match where the winner advances to the Royal Rumble match. Quick and painless. 4/10
Get this DVD to see the amazing Angle vs. Benoit match and the entertaining Royal Rumble. But if you want to stay awake skip the HHH vs. Steiner match.
Big Show Vs Brock Lesnar (winner advances to the rumble match): Not terrible but their match at Survivor Series was ten times better. It was a wise move to make this the opening contest and not making it too long as it saved the match - 6/10
World Tag Team title match - Dudley Boyz Vs William Regal and Lance Storm: We all love it when the Dudleys appear at the Rumble. Their table match with the Hardy Boyz at the 2000 Royal Rumble was an all time classic and their tag title matches at the 2001 and 2002 Royal Rumbles were phenomenal but their outing here wasn't up to the usual standard that we all love. Still a good match though - 7.5/10
Torrie Wilson Vs Dawn Marie: Their match at No Mercy was far more enjoyable and nothing they do can beat their appearance at Armageddon (obviously!) but this match finished off the ridiculous storyline that they were sadly involved in so you have to praise it for that - 5/10
World Heavyweight Title match - Triple H Vs Scott Steiner: It was superbly hyped but the match itself was ruined by Big Poppa Pump doing nothing but suplexes and an ending that you should've known was bound to happen. The aftermath was highly entertaining though - 6.5/10
WWE title match - Kurt Angle Vs Chris Benoit: Ever since their first ever encounter at Wrestlemania 17, we've realised that it's impossible for these two to have a bad match and it's certainly no exception here. Undoubtedly the best match these two have had with manoeuvres and counters that will take your breath away.... Read more ›
ROYAL RUMBLE ENTRY MATCH
Brock Lesnar v Big Show with Paul Heyman
The winner would enter the rumble match and it's an entertaining start to the show. 7/10
WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP
William Regal/Lance Storm v The Dudley Boyz
Fairly dull match, nothing special. 6/10
STEPDAUGHTER VS STEPMOTHER MATCH
Torrie Wilson v Dawn Marie
It's a good time to make a cup of tea, you won't miss anything. 1/10
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
Triple H with Ric Flair v Scott Steiner
I always respected Triple H for being able to sell a match, but even he has his work cut out with this match! Steiner was shown to be invincible in the pre-match build up to make the match more appealing, but it turned out to be perhaps the worst title match EVER! Triple H spends most of this rolling around in agony as Steiner delivers his single move, the belly to belly suplex, again and again (please let me know if you spot another). Even the interference of Ric Flair can't save this as Steiner takes the WWE to new lows. The worst thing is, this is not a short match and you will find yourself screaming at the screen for mercy! -10/10 (and that's being kind!)
Kurt Angle v Chris Benoit
It's times like this you are glad the WWE has 2 world titles! This is a match of the year contender as both men turn on the wrestling ability and style. It keeps you gripped from the first introduction to the excellent ending. Both men deserve a lot of credit and it's nice to see Benoit receive a huge ovation at the conclusion.
Big Show vs. Brock Lesnar - This Match would Continue the ongoing Brock vs. Paul Heyman Feud and The Winner would get to enter the Royal Rumble. This Match was a Bit Too Slow, but better than Most would expect from Big Show.
Dawn Marie vs. Torrie Wilson - Fans were Really Glad to See This Match as It Meant an End to The Terrible Torrie/Dawn Feud that had been going for several Months. A Quick Match.
William Regal & Lance Storm vs. The Dudley Boyz - A Standard Tag Team Match for The WWE World Tag Team Titles.
Scott Steiner vs. Triple H - This WWE World Championship Match Killed The Atmosphere in The Arena. People Just Couldnt Believe How Dull This Match was and How Predictable The Ending would be.
Chris Benoit vs. Kurt Angle - This Match Was Undoubtedly The Match of The Night with Both Men Pulling out all The Stops in an attempt to Win The WWE Championship. Both Recieved a Standing Ovation after This Match.
30 Man Royal Rumble - This Royal Rumble was Good, But 2001 and 2002 were Better. There were No Surprise Entrants for The Second Year Running and at times there was Too Many People in The Ring so it became hard to see what was happening. (Usually there is 8 or 9 at most, This Rumble Saw 11+). The Ending was also all too Predictable.... Read more ›
