Re: Royal Rumble Match Rewatch/Watch and Ranking Thread

I watched RR1990 last night because of this thread. I didn't take notes, so I won't do a write-up.

The first 50-55ish minutes were great. I was never a fan of The Million Dollar Man, but I was really hoping he would go the distance after half an hour. I think he went out at about 48 minutes.

I didn't care for the finish, although Warrior and Hogan stalemating for a while was okay. I don't remember that era too well, was there a reason behind Hogan winning, other than he's Hogan?

I may need to start watching some of those old matches. What I would really like to see is some of the Canadian product from the mid 70s to early 80s.

It's been reported very widely that Mr. Perfect was supposed to win that Rumble to set up a series with Hogan. Hogan vetoed this very soon before the Rumble and that was that.

That would have been a more satisfying finish.

So we would see Hogan Perfect at wm6? Or would it have just been on the house show circuit?

The next 3 rumbles 90-91 and 92 are very good if I remember correctly. Then its a significant drop off after that until the late 90s.

That would have been good. Sucks for Perfect. I was a huge Hogan mark as a kid but he really did **** on a lot of people.

I'm not trying to push you to do something that you don't want, but there are plenty of ways to do a write up. If you look at my Wrestlemania write ups, you will see that I did more of a random thought in bullet points style. That made it much less note taking intensive. Just wanted to throw that out there in case you decide to try a write up or two

I may do that, but I'll need to take some notes, if only so I remember who the participants were.
