5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Royal Rumbles 7 July 2008
By A. Gest
Format:DVD
1. Ric Flair v MVP
Good, solid opener. The crowd absolutely loved Flair and why shouldnt they? MVP did well as the cocky arrogant heel and got a good heel reaction when he interrupted Flair's speech. As for the wrestling, a solid bout but nothing special. The right man won and got a great pop.
Wooooooooo!
7/10

2. Chris Jericho v JBL
This was a bit of a disappointment. Both wrestlers, while being great on the mic, never really got going in-ring wise throughout their feud, the chemistry just wasn't there. Forgettable match. JBL needs to hit the gym.
5/10

3. Edge (c) v Rey Mysterio for the World Heavyweight Championship
Great, fast-paced match. Crowd was solidly behind Edge though which was a bit weird seeing as he is the mega-heel (and does it oh so well) but we all know New York fans are 'intelligent wrestling fans'. Great finish sequence with the inevitable Vickie Guerrero getting involved and a great finishing move.
9/10

4. Jeff Hardy v Randy Orton (c) for the WWE Championship:
Man, Jeff Hardy is wayyyyy over. Good, solid match which proved to all that Hardy does indeed belong in the main event (at least, when he's not suspended for wellness policy violations). Very unpredictable ending in my opinion and some would say the wrong man won.
8/10

5. The Royal Rumble Match
Absolutely fantastic. Definitely the most enjoyable RR match since 2001. Great choice to start off with HBK and Undertaker, reminiscent of the 2007 finale. The action was fast-paced and kept picking up. Not to mention the massive surprise when the No. 30 entrance came out. Great ending and I personally didn't have a problem with the winner.
Kudos go to John Morrison and Undertaker for very good performances.
10/10

Overall, a highly enjoyable PPV and a must-get for all wrestling fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Road to Wrestlemania begins here!!! 8 May 2008
Format:DVD
Match 1 - Ric Flair vs MVP (Career Ending Match)

If you know your wrestling then you'll know who wins this...if you dont and your fresh then this is a pretty good opening match up between the emotional Flair and the arrogant MVP, Flair thanks the crowd before the bell rings as he knows that thsi is the last time he'll ever wrestle in the wrestling mecca that is MSG. 6/10

Match 2 - Y2J vs JBL

This feud never seemed to happen really, this was the conclusion to there feud that lasted all of 3 weeks. A pretty good match from a brilliant brawler and a master of catch as catch can. two different styles that actually compliment each other. Jericho gets busted wide open and retaliates to end the match. 7/10

Match 3 - Edge (c) vs Rey Mysterio (World Heavyweight Championship)

A solid match up between the highest of high fliers and the R rated superstar. Edge has Vickie Guerrero in his pocket at the time and still does presently, Obviously a lot of history between Vickie and Rey here but everyone was pulling for Rey, overall a good matchup with Edge grounding Rey for the most part. Once Rey gets his legs back he makes a great comeback until an amazingly fast spear in mid air. 8/10 Its all about the ending.

Match 4 - Randy Orton vs Jeff Hardy (WWE Championship)

What a great match and build up, Randy playing the sadist and Jeff playing Jeff. Everyone is all over Jeff on this one, really believing his life long dream is coming true, and in hindsight he did, He has concreted himslef as a main eventer now and thats job done in my eyes. A very good match that swings both ways, Jeff does some incredible sequences here, but doesn't he always!!! A great finish to a great match. 9/10

Match 5 - 30 man Royal Rumble.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Great Start to 2008 28 May 2008
By C. Swan
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Royal Rumble is always a PPV to look forawrd to, and this year in particulary was one to watch. In front of a sold out crowd in the World's Most Famous arena - Madison Square Garden, we had 2 WWE World Title matches on the line, a chance to see someone try and make history at Wrestlemania 24, a PPV return since Judgment Day 2006 for JBL, and a Career in jeapordy. This is the 2008 Royal Rumble.

--This may contain SPOILERS--

Career Threatening Match
Ric Flair vs. MVP

This was the perfect match to start the night with. Ric does some nice mic work before hand to get the crowd how, whilst MVP interrupts it, to gain more heel heat. As for the match, I thought it was very good, nothing really botched, and just had a nice flow. A vast improvement from their match at Night of Champions. There was a nice false finish at about the 5 minute mark after MVP delivers an awesome boot, however after some nice back and forth action, Ric Flair locks in the Figure Four Leg Lock for the win at the 8 minute mark. Overall, a good start, although nothing too special.
MATCH RATING: 7.5

Chris Jericho vs. JBL

Okay, nothing really special at all. A pretty average match, although I did like Y2J's blade job, which did add to the match, and due to the storyline purposes I did like the DQ ending by Y2J at the9 minute mark. PLEASE NOTE: On the region 2 Dvd, due to the BBFC Policy and the Video Recordings Act of 1984 the aftermath where Y2J chokes out JBL has been cut.
MATCH RATING: 6

World Heavyweight Championship Match
(Champion) Edge w/ Vickie Guerrero vs.
