5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Nights Entertainment, 26 Feb 2013
This review is from: WWE: Royal Rumble 2013 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
2012s 25th anniversary Royal Rumble was a massive letdown lacking match quality and suprises, but this years Rumble has a real big event feel to it. Only fair considering its WWE's second biggest PPV of the year.
Suprisingly there are only four matches on the card but they range from good to excellent.
We open with a SUPERB last man standing match for the World Heavyweight championship between Alberto Del Rio and The Big Show. Whilst Show has his critics, he is on a roll at the moment with his PPV matches. Great spots, a good crowd and an excellent ending made this a great opener.
Second is the tag team titles match, The Rhode Scholars Vs Team Hell No. The most forgettable match of the night, but solid tag team action.
Next up oddly is the Rumble itself and I thought it was a fantastic Rumble with a couple of genuinely unexpected and amazing surprise entrants. The match was very well paced, tense with seriously memorable moments (Zack Ryders head first elimination, Kofi using a chair as a pogo stick) and was a huge improvement on last years. The only thing that ruined the enjoyment was how obvious it was who would win it this year.
The main event was right up my street. CM Punk Vs The Rock for the WWE Championship. I'm a huge Rock fan and enjoy anything that reminds me of The Attitude Era so I will always support him and I'm buzzing to have him back in the title picture. A far better match than Rock Vs Cena at Mania, with an ending I absolutely loved.
2013 is off to an amazing start.
Watching this PPV on DVD will never have the excitement of watching it live with a few mates and a pizza at 1am, and the cover itself ruins the outcome, but this is PG Era WWE at its very very best- a GREAT show.
The Road To Wrestlemania is officially underway and I love it.
