4.0 out of 5 stars happy days, 26 Aug. 2008
This review is from: WWE - Royal Rumble 1991 & 1992 [DVD] (DVD)
Two WWF era pay per views on one afforable pack is one thing,two royal rumbles is another,but when one of them is one of the greatest rumbles of all time then you are really onto a winner and thats what we have here.
Royal rumble 1991 is in a nutshell a very good event,the event opened with a tag team match between the rockers and the orient express.In truth this match had alot going for it but was kinda diluted in the end as it rattled on a little too long and drowned itself with a sense of deja vu but for the most part this was a good fast paced match.
The big boss man fought the barbarian next,this match was close to 15 minutes long and thats alot of time given to what appeared to be a very one dimensional match,it was bruising but featured too many bear hugs that slowed this down to a crawl,it had some good spots but to be fair was a match that was dying from the off.
The WWF championship was up next,it probably should have featured last,but it featured the champion,the ultimate warrior going up against sgt slaughter who was generating cheap heat by playing a turncoat on america and its culture so the crowd were going mad from the start.The match didnt last as long as the two matches prior,another odd decision,anyway,the match was good enough,the warrior was on good form here while slaughter played his part well,some outside interference livened things up and i have always found this a memorable enough match so thats grand.
A tag team match featured next and involved ted dibiase and virgil going up against dustin and dusty rhodes,i found this match annoying,it never had any real flow and dragged its heels in the mud for far too long,a let down then.
The royal rumble match itself was next and was a real diamond,the winner was a pleasing occurence for myself but aside from that it featured some great wrestlers from yesteryear and some great individual showings,hard to fault.
The following year,1992,featured the greatest royal rumble match ever,it was also the first i ever watched live as a budding youngster,the match was superb,i have watched it so many times that i could commentate on it without too much hassle.The commentary by bobby the brain during this match is the single greatest commentary in WWE history if not any sport,form of entertainment.
The undercard was very good as well,i wont go into it all as i think i have taken up enough of your time,it featured a good mixture of talent in solid matches.
The royal rumble match itself always included the fact that whomever the winner would be would win the vacant WWF championship and that meant that this was the be and all and end all of rumbles and the same applies to the event itself,with both 1991 and 1992s rumbles here you wont be sorry if you buy this.
