    Had to laugh at Nia saying that Tamina is family like 2 seconds after throwing out Naomi (also family).

    Solid Rumble. The execution wasn't great for the whole thing, but there were some good moments. Best part was the Final 3, that one on one between Bianca and Ripley, and then Bianca getting the win. So happy for her,.and they played that finish perfectly.

    I did like that they had them work together to eliminate Charlotte and not immediately denigrate. I also liked Bianca working with Naomi earlier. Weird they had Alexa eliminated so soon. Also weird that they had Nikki gone beforehand. That would have a been a good spot to have them finish off that dangling story. But whatevs.

    I honestly thought it was bizarre Bianca and naomi seemingly fought only each other for 30 straight minutes.

    Somebody's dinner was sitting on that table. But I doubt that was his...

    Edit: I had a teacher tell us once that construction workers leave the keys in their vehicles because they know no one will try to steal them. So, I never hate that this happens in wrestling.

    Another edit: Shane and Angle would have so used that mirror wall right there to do something stupid

    Oh! I never saw that. Raven, ever the innovator

    Also, I like that tying people down with cuffs is more common now in logical no rules situations. Edit: that ref spot is the best one I've ever seen! I also love Heyman's genre savvy.

    That match was pretty hot and fun until they botched getting the handcuffs off

    Is that the best KO has looked in a main event setting since joining the main roster?

    Miz should have had Morrison blindside Reigns right there, hit Roman with a taser, then cash in MITB. Badda boom, badda bing, new champion! Then you have Reigns go to Raw and just absolutely murder him and demand a match. Miz, when he's conscious later in the show, says no way. And he keeps doing it and finding ways to avoiding getting murdered until they have a match. It could be a fun program for a month.

    Cole: The match spills out onto the announce table!
    Joe: YES IT DOES!!!
    You can tell Joe wishes he was out there.

    Edit: I'm surprised at your lack of genre savvy Sami! Go sit in the opposite corner and hide! Especially with Orton out there,
    Now, Ali should be pissed at Orton for last year and go straight at him.

    I dare say this is one of the best Rumble beginnings I've seen in a while!
    The tables tonight have been in protest. "We WILL NOT YIELD. We will not BREAK!"
    Oh, and FUCK refs getting involved in taking a chair away. IT'S A FUCKING RUMBLE! There are no rules.

    Another perplexing one, why not have Ali and Ricochet in there for a bit to advance that story?

    It's Randy Orton not Curtis Axel. Chances of coming back are high.

    C'mon refs. You take a chair from Edge, yet you let a "non wrestler" interfere in a match? Despite them having been eliminated, I need logic still

    I appreciate Otis...
    But might i say, FUCK CORBIN. I know he's supposed to be the heel, but no matter how hard they try, people just won't "hate" him as a heel. He's eye rolling. But that's just my opinion.
    Edit: okay, having Dom eliminate him at that moment was a good spot. I appreciate that his Rumble has had no slow spots so far.

    It's amazing how all these guys who had to retire due to injury suddenly got better. I am sure no outside reasons contribute to the sudden shift in the doctor's prognosis. No sir all above board here.

    Because, he SHOULD not be allowed to come back. And if he does, it should just be shenanigans.

    Winning from #1 isn't bad. It's so rare, that it's still good. Them not doing the sneak attack win is good. There were no slow spots in the match. The only problem is they did miss a couple of cool spots like the double spear by Edge and Christian, but I liked this Rumble.

    I would be shocked if they didn't do SPEAR VS SPEAR. Even, vs SPEAR if they wanted a triple threat. I know Bryan was the favorite, but ...I'm not mad.

    Makes sense for Shayna and Nia to take the titles. There was too much going on at the end, but I'm fine with the result. The championship did absolutely nothing for Asuka and Charlotte. I don't have high hopes that Shayna and Nia will do much of anything with them, but that does open things up for other contenders to step up. No one got hurt or had a nasty bump in a Nia match...so that's a big win.

    Goldberg clearly said hell no to wearing trunks. Good for him. The shorts worked. That was a better version of the Mania match Goldberg had with Strowman. McIntyre did a nice job selling the power Goldberg possessed, which is what he called out prior to the match. This was certainly about making McIntyre look like a million bucks. He's beaten Lesnar and Goldberg.

    Sasha wanted to show off with the Louis V-inspired gear. I thought the match was pretty good. Their first matchup was better, IMO. Carmella is still improving, despite that dive. Good on Sasha to check on her. Reginald fits Carmella's style, too, and adds a different layer to everything.

    Glad to see New Day back and not surprised they found a way to pay respect to Brodie Lee in the process. They had the obvious shouts to him on the gear itself but it also looked like the gear was inspired to have an old Bludgeon Brothers look to it.

    The disrespect for Bayley to shave 'Cole' into the back of her hair and Cole didn't even call the Women's Rumble lol. So much for that theory that WWE wouldn't fill the ring during the Rumbles because of Covid lol. Kudos to Billie for having a standout comedic effort. Lacey isn't smart: rile up Charlotte and just flat out turn you back to hurt? WWE production was at it AGAIN by missing Bianca eliminating Bayley live. Great final 3 and wonderful drama going into the final 2. Rhea is a bridesmaid again but it's time for her to make a huge impact. I'm guessing she does that on Raw. As for the winner, Bianca has the damn rocket strapped to her. Looks like we're going to get a hot feud between Bianca and Sasha. I didn't anticipate Bianca getting the shine because she got in Friday but it ultimately ended up being the prologue to tonight. Great emotion by her at the end.

    Truth yelling "I'm gonna get you, Michael Kay" destroyed me lol. Rosenberg winning the 24/7 title killed it dead but Truth is hilarious.

    They did the same damn launch spot but kudos to Owens for taking it again lol. At least they one-upped it BY RUNNING HIM THE HELL OVER WITH A GOLF CART lol. That's clearly a family thing, running people over who do stunners. The Swanton and the subsequent replays were shot so well. WWE gets a lot of grief for their terrible camera angles but they nailed that. What a fantastic callback to the cage mage with the brilliant use of handcuffs. That spot ultimately caused an awkward hiccup because Heyman couldn't undo the cuffs. He should have hit the ref to buy more time. It's a shame that finish got bungled because it was absolutely mind-blowing before that.

    Three man booths are annoying but I like Cole, Graves, Joe. Orton's face healed INCREDIBLY fast. Good for him. Good line by Joe: "What's in those apples?" Carlito looked yoked up for sure. Priest certainly got a good showing for his debut. I originally thought he was going to be the mystery guy Mysterio talked about on SD three weeks ago. Maybe he still will be. CHRISTIAN!!! What a fantastic shot of Riddle being shocked and then Edge peacefully being happy to see his friend back. The elimination of E was stupid. I don't mind him being eliminated but I doubt there's much of a payoff for that going forward and the IC champ should have something substantial for an elimination. Very notable absences by guys like Keith Lee and Jey Uso. Hopefully those guys are okay.

    I figured Orton was coming back when it was just refs looking at him early and it wasn't medical people. I figured the return would come but The Fiend would spoil it. Thankfully that didn't happen because that would have been a stupid ending lol. Edge versus either champion would be dramatically fun and it's pretty much set up for him to get a title run out of it now. Very fun Rumble. Pat Patterson would be very proud.

    Edge is the most genuine babyface on the roster so had to win really. Everybody else is just happy to be there, while he conveys that it is everything to be there. Hopefully goes after Roman for the Edge and Christian vs. Usos PPV match in the build up.

    Its not rare though. It's like the joint second most successful number. If you throw in number 2 (which is basically the same thing) then its the most successful. It kind of negates the whole match premise if people win from the start every couple of years.

    Did enjoy the commentators saying that number 3 is the worst number to draw just after Belair had won the women's match from that very number.

    That was a fun men’s Rumble. Congrats to Edge!

    I too thought the Fiend would cost Orton but glad it didn’t work out that way.

    Edge facing Drew leaves it open for Bryan or Big E to face Roman. Edge facing Roman would leave the door open for far weaker guys against Drew.

    The hottest babyface can't face the feel-good veteran.
    Sheamus seems like the dude set up for McIntyre.

    The direction of these shows is the worst example of its craft in any genre you could imagine. When Jax and Bayzler where throwing at each other, there were cuts at 1/2 a second. That is insultingly incompetent.

    I did not know this. I always thought 17 was the lucky number. Late enough to not be iron man, but early enough to give a person the spotlight.

She seemed kinda heelish during the Rumble, so it would be a good fit.

    I did like that they had them work together to eliminate Charlotte and not immediately denigrate. I also liked Bianca working with Naomi earlier. Weird they had Alexa eliminated so soon. Also weird that they had Nikki gone beforehand. That would have a been a good spot to have them finish off that dangling story. But whatevs.
    Hot take Rhonda fucked up on purpose. As for this, this could be an interesting start of a fued between her and literally anyone.

    I enjoyed the rumbles themselves. This was my first ppv since last year's rumble, so it was trippy seeing the crowd. I marked out hard for Carlito and Christian. Carlito looked jacked and ready for a comeback. Christian would be great in a limited role. Glad to know his final career note will not end like it did in 2014.

    The rumble itself had consistent action and nice returns. Not as great as 2020 but above my expectations.

    HELL YEAH. Great show tonight.

    Didn't watch the preshow so I missed the Women's Tag Title Match. I hope Asuka gets something worthwhile lined up for Mania if it's not going to be with a heel-turned Flair. Maybe Rhea? That'd be dope. Nia/Shayna as champs again doesn't thrill me but whatever...they'll probably lose them to Dana/Mandy to a resounding meh.

    Drew/'Berg was exactly what I expected so it was fine enough. Glad to see 'Berg didn't botch up the Jackhammer as I was pretty on edge when he went for it. Hopefully we don't see the dude again for a good long while if ever. Good notch in the belt for Drew.

    Sasha/Carmella was fine but a step below their previous effort. Reginald is dope and I look forward to when he breaks away and does his own thing.

    Women's Rumble was damn good. Absolutely marked out for Jillian and Victoria as I'd never have guessed either of them would appear. I completely forgot Jillian even existed and Victoria recently said she'd had her last match and was retired, so nice surprises there. Happy to see Naomi back and get a good amount of time and spots to shine. Final stretch of this match was fire when it was down to three and then two. Melly and I were on the edge of the couch absolutely whooping it up. Awesome win for Bianca, great moment, cannot wait for her to hopefully get the big title win at Mania. Bianca/Sasha, yes, please, bring it on.

    Reigns/Owens was killer outside of the bungled up unlocking of the cuffs which really brought things to a screeching halt. Like BG said, Heyman should have punched out the ref to buy time rather than the ref just stopping the count at 5 for no damn reason and waiting like a dope. Really cool to see them roam around into the other part of the arena, golf cart was a legit jaw-dropping surprise, insane swanton by Owens, other good spots. All around, a really solid LMS match.

    Men's Rumble was a lot of fun. When Orton went out with the injury I was certain he'd come back, pretty sure he'd possibly even win, and The Fiend would then show up to close the show. So, then he DID come back and hit Edge with the RKO and I was sure that was about to go down and then Edge whipped him out and I about jumped outta my seat. Good job, wrestling. Nice showing for Priest. Lack of Keith Lee was a bit upsetting. Carlito was a nice surprise and yeah, dude's looking beefy...will be curious if this was a one off or that return that was rumored for the past 5 years. Christian showing up was a pretty cool shocker. Rollins returning is dope. Teased a few matches'/feuds that I might have to update into my HYPED thread. Edge/Roman for Mania would be absolute fire but I'd be pretty down with Drew/Edge, as well, though I think there's a better story in the former.

    All in all, the wife and I had a blast watching tonight and everything was pretty fucking solid.

    Side note. Edge won his first Rumble on this same date 11 years ago.

    She did not. That would have been an excellent plan, though.

    :me, marking the fuck out:

    He was/is one of my all-time favourite wrestlers, my first Rajah screen name was “Edgehead 82”.

    I bet it still happens: Bianca v Sasha (SD) and Charlotte v Asuka (RAW) at Mania.

    Editing can't happen during a live show, that's direction.

    Edit - Which is to say live editing is direction.

    How WWE shoots and edits their events has been an issue for years now, one that should have been thrown out along with Kevin Dunne. The editing is overly frantic, the cameraman are instructed to flail about like ragdolls, and key moments are lost in the edit. Like when Edge first returned at the previous RR? They focused more on the crowd and spectacle rather than Edge himself who had already rolled into the ring and hit his first spear in a decade, a moment that should have been seen on the spot... but nah.

    Almost like the chaos starts at the top, what with Deplorable Vince and his literal last-second script rewrites...it’s absolutely mind boggling how a billion dollar company can be so unorganized.

    I love Edge but it’s 2021...he needs to be putting over Roman/Drew at Mania.

    I don't see Edge winning the title unless he really is going to go full time. We don't need another part time champ.
