Next year the Rumble is back in Philly (site of 2015 Rumble). Just thought I'd throw that out there.

I still think Jericho should have won by default when he entered #30.

That would've lived up to the hype. Such a great troll.

Re: Royal Rumble 2017: PPV Discussion Thread

Taker is def getting eliminated by not reaching the ring prior to the next entrant being announced. That ramp is so long!

cue ref running forever down long ramp then sliding 3/4 way into the ring to make a count dot gif

Despite having been to Germany twice, and knowing many German people, I still can't not hear Keegan Michael Keye as Frontbutt doing the German accent.

This feels like the one belt least likely to change hands tonight.

I don't think a big giant type guy ever wins the rumble, but I'm not an expert.

Also, having the winner auto-main event WM makes it hard to imagine Braun winning.

Re: Royal Rumble 2017: PPV Discussion Thread

How's the commentary with Saxton and this other dude? Is Cole still worse than being forced to drink a pint of aids infected period blood?

You were like 14 or something at the time, right? You had rumble pools at that age?

Graves is quite good. Saxton is meh. Cole is still pretty much as you described.

Re: Royal Rumble 2017: PPV Discussion Thread

I'm watching this with my wife and a bunch of her family members who don't watch wrestling. They are all really into it though and I'm having a great time pretending each near fall could be the end of the match. Sometimes you forget the joy of watching wrestling as a true mark.

Honestly Charlotte seems like a difficult person to book, she's literally bigger, stronger, faster and more coordinated than every other woman on the roster.

I imagine you're going to run in to a lot of boredom and cell phones well before the RR match begins.

Big John Studd won in 1989....that's the closest I can think of. Big Show and Kane have both gotten second.
