Admittedly, we're pretty lame when it comes to being fans. Expect to be disappointed.

Though they seem awfully rowdy early.

I think this is one thing the WWE has done right the past few years. They market it to hardcore fans who will make the trek and it makes the atmosphere more fun for all 4 events in whatever city they go to.

I feel kinda sad I didn't make it up north to PHX for this. I totally forgot that it was being held there until the past week or two.

I tend to make this assumption about basically the entirety of every US city in Pacific Time and Mountain Time. Glad to hear the early reports of being rowdy. Iso may be right that the majors are increasingly drawing crowds from elsewhere like Mania has been doing for a while.

So I'm sure it's been discussed but since R Truth gimmick is that he's stupid and screws stuff up / shows up in the wrong spot he's going to somehow not make the rumble at #30 and we're going to get someone else, feel like a lock

Loving the live blogging photos!

It makes me feel sort of like I'm there, even though I'm actually just going to be drunk at my house instead.

This is one of the four big ones; hoping it delivers!

WWE has surprised me in a bad way before, but I'm guessing the Men's RR will be last this year and if that's the case I find it hard to believe they'll end on such an anti-climactic note.

If you're sitting in the 2nd level these lights are a PITA. A "turn the light off" chant got started. Everyone on the floor was looking up like wtf are they screaming about. Good times.

They’ve been pushing that Cena is hurt and isnt in the match. Coming out at 30 is probably their huge surprise. Womp womp

That would be incredibly lazy writing even by WWE standards.

Warning total mark dream scenario:

Adam Cole injures R-Truth backstage and takes the #30 spot. Goes on to win the Rumble setting up Styles or Bryan vs Cole at WM.

This whole Halftime Heat thing just made this scenario even less likely though I guess.

Super heavyweight Crash Holly is particularly confused by this.

They broke up Rusev day so Aiden English could move onto commentary? Well, at least Rusev has moved onto bigger and better things...oh, he lost the US title already?
