J.R. even mentioned on RAW last night that with the HHH/Angle match and the Jericho/Austin match at No Way Out that the Royal Rumble was pointless.

So if you paid money to watch RR, the WWF ripped you off!

Straight from the Bishoff Days!

You got a good show right? Isn't that what matters..
If you only watch it for finding out who the #1 contender at WM will be then you get ripped off no matter what as about two and a half months of hyping his name are in between those matches..

If I recall correctly 2 out of 3 (if including HHH 3 out of 4) had some sort of #1 contenders match following their win..

Bischoff days? I know what you mean by it, but what is THAT supposed to mean?!

And, at least they're coming up with decent reasons for why they're doing it. I recall a Shawn Michaels/Owen Hart #1 Contender match at In Your House before Wrestlemania XII that was basically concocted on a dare.

Kurt Angle looks like an asshole for running to Vince (especially since there's probable cause for Vince to hate Triple H right now with the stuff he's said about him). Triple H looks like he's been backed into a corner. Add the fact that his shrieky wife is knocked up and she and Angle had romantic tension awhile back that most fans bought, I think that's one of the more thorough and interesting feuds they've put together in some time.

I'd personally say that the Rumble kicked my ass htis year.. a number of pretty damned good matches and the Rumble itself, while predictable, was fun.. and thats all I ask for out of a PPV.. as for it being negated at No Way Out.. its not like wrestling is.. booked.. anyway
