2.0 out of 5 stars Leave this Royal Rumblus in the lion's den., 7 Jun. 2006
This review is from: WWE Royal Rumble 2006 [DVD] (DVD)
OPENER: Cruiserweight Champion Kid Kash vs. 5 Other Cruiserweights in a Texas Tornado Six-Man Challenge

Impressive cruiserweight match which featured an entertaining wrestling pace as well as some good moves performed. It got chaotic at times and was difficult to follow, but that was obviously going to happen with 6 guys in the ring at once. One of the best openers for quite a while.

#2: Mickie James vs. Ashley with Women's Champion Trish Stratus as Special Guest Referee

Nothing special as Ashley managed to work a few sequences right, but otherwise was botching a lot of the moves. It was difficult to really get into the match as the wrestling wasn't too good and the finish was messed up. However, it achieved its storyline purpose and Mickie was entertaining once again.

( 4 )

#3: JBL vs. The Boogeyman

I hope to forget this match as quickly as possible. It lasts 2 minutes and features ONE move by Boogeyman. Made JBL look incredibly bad. Terrible match that really messed up the card.

( 1 )

#4: The Royal Rumble

The special surprise after the main event is the reason why this wasn't the main event of the PPV, even when it definitely should have been. This won't stand out as a classic Rumble match. It had many strengths, such as the unpredictability at times as well as booking a lot of guys to look stronger. However, it got quite dull at times and it was ridiculous how many wrestlers failed to last 2 minutes in the match. Good match, but not a great Rumble.

( 7 )

#5: John Cena vs. WWE Champion Edge

Cena had a high-budget entrance which may be entertaining for some, and terribly over-the-top for others. This match was better than expected as both men managed to keep a reasonable pace going as well as using a wide variety of moves. However, Cena made his comeback too easily and the finish wasn't booked too well. Good match but could have been better, as shown by the rematch two weeks later.

( 7 )

MAIN EVENT: Mark Henry vs. World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle

Henry's wrestling style is very slow and not too interesting, and so this definitely harmed the quality of the bout. The match played up Angle as the underdog, which was done well, and was quite entertaining at times. However, the finish was rushed and came off quite sloppy (along with a lot of the match) and the special return after the match was unnecessary, although some may enjoy it.

( 4 )

AVERAGE MARK: 5.2

STARS: **

MATCH OF THE NIGHT: The Cruiserweight Open match

SEGMENTS: The main backstage segment featured wrestlers collecting their Royal Rumble numbers. It wasn't nearly as well-performed as it was last year, and the odds of the first two numbers being drawn together for the SECOND year running are very unlikely!

THOUGHTS: This wasn't a very good Rumble PPV when you look at it, as although half the card featured entertaining and well-booked matches, the other half featured some very poor bouts. If looking for a Royal Rumble event, I recommend either the 2000 or 2005 versions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent WrestleMania, but not a classic., 3 Jun. 2006
OPENER: WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS - CARLITO & CHRIS MASTERS VS. KANE & BIG SHOW (C)

Wise choice as opener and decent match, kept at a reasonable pace. Still, the match was far from the quality all four competitors could achieve and the ending seemed quite rushed to me. Average opener.

( 6 )

#2: MONEY IN THE BANK LADDER MATCH - RAW'S SHELTON BENJAMIN VS. ROB VAN DAM VS. RIC FLAIR VS. SMACKDOWN!'S MATT HARDY VS. FINLAY VS. BOBBY LASHLEY

Great ladder match featuring some well-performed spots and all six wrestlers showing their strengths in the match. Not as good as a lot of classic ladder matches, but still very good. Benjamin is man of the match for the second year running.

( 8 )

#3: U.S. CHAMPIONSHIP - JBL VS. CHRIS BENOIT (C)

Started off very well with some great technical wrestling and a nicely performed face/heel scenario. However, the match ended disappointingly early at the 9 minute mark. With more time, could have been a much better match. Still a good attempt.

( 7 )

#4: HARDCORE MATCH - EDGE VS. MICK FOLEY

Excellent hardcore match, featuring many different varieties of weapons along with an amazing finishing sequence. However, unlike others, I wouldn't call this the greatest hardcore match ever. It could have gone an extra few minutes and there were too many times where WWE went for an easier route out of a situation. See Royal Rumble 2000 for a classic hardcore bout. Edge's facial reaction at the end is priceless.

( 9 )

#5: HANDICAP MATCH - BOOKER T & SHARMELL VS. THE BOOGEYMAN

Embarrasingly bad match. Boogey hits barely any offence and Booker has to pretty much carry him for the entire bout. It ends quickly, fortunately, but the damage was done. Booker deserves much better. Excellent backstage segment before the match, though.

( 2 )

#6: WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP - MICKIE JAMES VS. TRISH STRATUS (C)

The fans were cheering for Mickie here, which was a bit of a problem. This was possibly the best women's match in WrestleMania history, as both women played their feud well and the action never really became unentertaining. However, it wasn't quite up to the quality of their match at NYR earlier this year.

( 7 )

#7: CASKET MATCH - MARK HENRY VS. UNDERTAKER

Average big man match with a slow pace and a lack of variety of moves shown. It was pretty basic and dull until Taker hit an amazing dive just before the end. Nothing special.

( 5 )

#8: NO HOLDS BARRED - SHAWN MICHAELS VS. VINCE MCMAHON

Isn't it great that No Holds Barred, Street Fight, Falls Count Anywhere and Hardcore matches are all practically the same? Anyway, the match was much better than I expected and went for a route similar, but not nearly as good, as the Shane/Vince match at WrestleMania X-7. HBK hits an amazing ladder spot, although it took far too long to build up. Good match, but wasted a lot of time that could have gone to Benoit/JBL and the triple threat match.

( 7 )

#9: WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP - TRIPLE THREAT - REY MYSTERIO VS. RANDY ORTON VS. KURT ANGLE (C)

Why this wasn't the main event is beyond me. Why this match only got 9 minutes still confuses me too. Great match for what it's worth as far as quality goes, as they managed to keep up a great pace. However, the ending was too early and disrespectful to all three competitors.

( 7 )

#10: PLAYBOY PILLOW FIGHT - CANDICE MICHELLE VS. TORRIE WILSON

This match should have been replaced by extra minutes for the previous bout. Note the boring chants, for example. Both women looked hot, but this was still a time waster. Pretty dull and not one pillow is used.

( 2 )

MAIN EVENT: WWE CHAMPIONSHIP - TRIPLE H VS. JOHN CENA

Both men have extended entrances, which were entertaining but also wastes of time. The fans were completely anti-Cena, which made them pointless too. The match was quite good as a combination of brawling and technical wrestling, and the finish was nicely performed. However, it was still pretty generic and stuck to the pattern of old-school wrestling too much for me.

( 7 )

AVERAGE SCORE: ( 6.1 )

STARS: ***

MATCH OF THE NIGHT: Edge vs. Mick Foley

THOUGHTS: It was a good PPV, but as far as I am concerned, this won't stand the time as a classic WrestleMania. Many of the matches weren't anything spectacular, and more time should have gone to the SmackDown brand. DVD also includes 'Saturday Night's Main Event', which has a good handicap match between the two WrestleMania main events and a decent Street Fight between Shawn Michaels and Shane McMahon.
