This is the last of the New Year’s Revolution PPVs — because who wants to buy a PPV and then buy the Royal Rumble in three more weeks. AMIRITE? Plus, you take away the elimination chamber which had been the only redeeming match from the other two years and you have got nothing to keep you here. Unless John Cena and Umaga can work a miracle!

TEN YEARS AFTER: With WrestleMania 32 coming up tomorrow, I thought it might be cool to look at how WWE has changed with ten years of perspective and see if there are any similarities between then and now. Injuries and careers ending changed the game. In 2006, it’s Batista missing WrestleMania and Eddie Guerrero passing away in October. In 2016, it’s Seth Rollins injured and Daniel Bryan whose career was cut short. John Cena is in his first year of being *the man* in WWE and he’s REALLY getting booed by WWE fans right about now. In 2016, Roman Reigns is getting treated even worse by WWE fans than John Cena. Either way, both received big pushes and neither one of them were embraced by the audience. Triple H headlines his fourth WrestleMania here and he’s still being used to help boost the main event players to this day. A McMahon is mixed up in a match that he should have no chance (in hell) of winning. Shane McMahon is here. The Undertaker is still around. In 2006, we’re witnessing the blowoff to the best Divas feud in WWE history. The Divas title match going down this year is comparable to this level of greatness IMO. Just so many comparisons, it almost seems intentional. Read the rest of this entry

Royal Rumble 2010

Royal Rumble 2010, January 31, 2010, Phillips Arena, Atlanta, GA

Announcers: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, & Matt Striker

So here we go with the first PPV of the new year and new decade, the Royal Rumble.  The undercard build has been pretty underwhelming to me, but I’m really looking forward to the Rumble itself as they’ve done a great job of building several guys into having legit reasons to win so if nothing else I expect it to deliver.
