    So there you go. Turns out that if your propaganda department has a decent budget you can by a really good house show card, even if they do insist on banning all the women women.

    “Greatest Royal Rumble” is the worst name ever.

    I don't watch wrestling anymore, but has there even been a build to Cena and HHH? Also, clear that either Strowman or Bryan will win the Rumble. Maybe Jericho.

    it is but its no surprise

    "hey you know that Royal Rumble you like, well this is that but Greater"

    wwe marketing aint stupid. leveraging an existing well known PPV name is better for business than making a new one

    I don’t think they even intended for it to be on the network until the matches started being added and it was being stacked.

    That is a stacked men’s card, but I can’t in good conscience watch this.

    It's a great card sans the women of course. I think Reigns wins the belt as well at that event.

    There hasn’t been a build to almost any of this.

    Jericho doesn’t have a contract, he’s the least likely person to win.

    I’d say Nakamura has a good chance of winning because it continues the AJ feud (assuming he doesn’t beat him) and doesn’t cheapen the original rumble.

    What would really be a make-good for no women on this show would be to do a whole PPV of only women.

    So what are the odds of Rusev getting ambushed by Cena before the casket match and taking his place?

    What is the point of the rumble match? Is there a championship opportunity if you win like the regular rumble? I don’t think anyone’s brought it up.

    I was thinking the same thing. And honestly, if they did, I'd be pretty excited for the card.

    Amen. I honestly feel this the most. And it's reason why i cancelled once again and gave up. I'll watch NXT on a stream and/or NJPW/ROH. It's just more fun for me.

    ALL the reviews I watched/read on WM said the same thing: NXT books smart and WWE books for shock value. And the long game of wrestling is never just constant shock value. Just because something is "obvious" doesn't make it bad. Some times things are natural and need to go the route they go.
