Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: WWE - Royal Rumble 2008: Steel Box Edition [DVD] (DVD)
The Royal Rumble is the best PPV of the year. My collection of Rumble DVDs goes back years, but this is one of the poorest.
Ric Flair vs MVP - this was a decent match as Ric is no spring chicken and MVP is an excellent wrestler.
Y2J vs JBL - A decent match. First I have seen of Jerico since his return and Bradshaw is a BIG guy. Nice to see him back in the ring too.
Edge vs Rey Mysterio - a good match. Edge always puts on a good show, and I am no fan of Rey Mysterio, but nevertheless it was enjoyable.
Randy Orton vs Jeff Hardy - Orton is the heel these days and Jeff can do no wrong. You just know that this will be a good match.
There was some silly business with Ashley and Maria thrown in which was a waste of time, cannot imagine why.
Then on to the Rumble itself. First in was Taker the HBK. The guys came in every two minutes after that and did not get thrown out too readily, so there were more in the ring at one time than ever before, however, there was not much in the way of action. HHH came in at no 29, and surprise! surprise! in came Cena at 30, much to the surprise of HHH - which is odd as he is management. Give HHH his due, I love the guy to bits but he cannot act to save himself. Thought Cena was to be off for a year, but no, he bounced back after only a few weeks. So much for his major surgery. (Rumour has it that he also found time to get married).
All in all the PPV was not anything as good as any of the other Rumble PPVs and was sadly lacking in extras.
However, it will be an addition to the collection, but Vince had better look out, because if he can not do better than this, the fans will be moving to TNA in their droves.

You're just a troll man, this was a fantastic PPV. So much for people "moving to TNA in their droves"...
