I thought it was a good show ruined by a DEAD crowd. All of the matches (except the Rumble) seemed to have a quick pace, or they were just short. I didn't really notice the times.

I don't wanna think about how bad Cena's leg is; it looked like Tom Brady's a few weeks back and hopefully it's just as not serious.

Benoit and Orton did one hell of a job throughout the Rumble; it's a pity Foley had to ruin it. Did Foley hit Pat Patterson with the stairs?

2nd loudest pop: Miller getting eliminated. Ha!
Loudest pop: Benoit winning, and rightfully so.

I must agree, crowd was horrible here. I guess Philly won't be seeing PPV again anytime soon.

John Cena's landing REALLY scared me. This is the absolute worst time for him to get injured, so hopefully he's alright. He DID walk to the back under his own power, so hopefully it's nothing too serious.

Hopefully Cena was just selling the injury really well and not in legit pain.

Yeah, I saw that and I was thinking,"I hope that isn't as bad as it looked." I think Hurricane is hurt too. He landed kind of funny.

Royal Rumble was an okay show. It didn't start 2004 off the way I had thought it would.
The first four matches were short with the HBK/HHH match being the one with the most hype and the most time dedicated to it.
The Guerrerro match was a little disapointing as it was a little dry with not too much story telling. The match should have been way better considering the participants. And, the ending was a bit odd. I guess Eddie/Chavo will go at it again at No Way Out.
As well as Lesnar and Hardbore Holly. What a disapointing match considering the time put into the hype of the match. Oh well. Lesnar is still great no matter what.

The Dudleyz/Evolution match and the Cruiserweight title match were both good because they were what they was. Flair's in great shape and I hope the WWE doesn't drop the ball with Batista.

The actual Rumble match lacked the suspence of past shows. I suspected(and predicted) Benoit to win. It was a little odvious with the whole Heyman angle.

I'm happy they made Show look like such a monster. They need to do this more often. He'll go over better. Cena'a run was too short considering his "headline WM" talk. I think they pushed Orton a little much(how many people did he eliminate?), I'm sorry-I like Randy Orton, I think he's good, but he's a wimp and totaly unbelievable.

Foley coming out wasnt a surprise but, it did add a little excitement. As did the Undertaker's 'gong' before Spike coming out. Did Spike ever officialy get eliminated ?

The whole Bischoff/Heyman angle sucked. With the former WCW and ECW heads face to face and that's all they can think off? Where's the history? Where the five-star-cards?
The whole begining of the Goldberg/Lesnar angle was nice to see, too. So, Benoit off to Raw and Goldberg off to Smackdown?

Did anybody catch Heat with Molly and Victoria. Victoria is in unbelievable shape, she has absolutely no chub what-so-ever.

I actually caught the Rumble with some friends. The show was okay, the Rumble had it's fun moments, but the undercard was WAY rushed. I have the 2001 Rumble on DVD, and well, the matches there had enough time, and the Rumble was still at a proper length. HHH and Michaels? I'm still undecided on that, though I really like Hunter yelling "STAY DOWN!" at Shawn. I still love it when HHH ORDERS somebody like that, mwahahaha....

Finally, on behalf of myself, I'd like to apologize for my hometown crowd not representing well last night. We are an old school bunch, hence the pops for Foley and Taker. But, I agree with their BS chants at the end of the Last Man Standing match. If I paid to be there, I'd make up for the dead crowd just from the HHH/Randy Orton cheers alone.



After a quarter of a century on this planet, there's three things I know for sure...
1)Ain't nothing like a Dirty Pair marathon on New Year's Eve.
2)I'd make a fine Mrs. HHH II.
3) I'd make an acceptable Mrs. Orton.

To be fair, we really didn't get much to work with. Short matches, crappy HHH/HBK match w/ a bullshit ending, with only a good Rumble to salvage the show.

The show was bad, which is why the crowd was bad.

I think Spike will battle Benoit for the #1's contender spot very soon. It's the match we all want anyway.

Spike never officially entered.

Rumble was nice, the other matches were pretty blah. Show fighting off the gang offense was awesome, Angle leading the charge was awesome, Nunzio's reluctance to enter was awesome. There was a wonderful psychology to it all.

I thought the Rumble match was very well done. The Shawn match was good, but why couldn't they give the fans a winner? The rest of the show seemed like a typical Raw/Smackdown event.

I doubt it'd be a triple threat. Test was officially replaced by Foley, and he never got as far as the stage.

While waiting for the 2004 Rumble to start, I went browsing through my tapes and put in the 1989 Rumble -- Rumble #2, won by Big John Studd.

Amazing how many of the same things were present. Andre the Giant was in at #3 (after Ax and Smash started) and many of the spots used with The Big Show were used with Andre. It was also fun to watch "one half of the Rockers, Shawn Michaels" do some of the same rope gymnastics we'd see in future years.
