Yes, best Rumble in a long time. I actually had no problem with the way Brock was booked in the match. It made him look incredibly strong which made Drew look even stronger.

I am happy we didn't see Cain Velasquez come in to be the one to take out Brock. I am glad we didnt see Roman win again. I started to get worried there for a second. The only thing I was disappointed in tha Beock didn't throw Rey into the 16th row. Rey's distance was subpar Brock, c'mon man.

Women's Rumble outcome was predictable for sure. But I love the Mandy Otis story. We are gonna see a love triangle with them and the destruction of fire and ice.

Edge, does indeed still have it, although AJ Styles hurt his shoulder trying to oversell the spear.

Beth Phoenix...wow. she is tough. That was a nasty cut on her head.

So I watched the Rumble last night and it was the first PPV I have watched in a few months. I have not been keeping up with RAW/SDL/NXT at all.

PPV has a whole was decent.
The non Rumble matches were all just kind of meh, except for Bryan/ Fiend which was really good except for the just kind of weak ending. Good match though.

The Women's rumble was good. Nothing crazy. Naomi was impressive again. Charlotte wining was fine. Just one more thing to add to her resume.

The Men's rumble was good once Brock was gone. Just so typical. I am just so ready for Brock to go away. I just don't see the point of him being there. I just don't find him very entertaining anymore. Just very predicable stuff. Like McIntyre eliminating him though.
Really good once Edge came in. He looked good.
I guess we will get Lesnar vs. McIntyre at mania now. O.k. i guess.

I see your point there. I'm still sick of Brock in the spotlight killing off all the talent Vince is wasting away.

Women's Rumble outcome was predictable for sure. But I love the Mandy Otis story. We are gonna see a love triangle with them and the destruction of fire and ice.
Otis/Mandy might be the best (if not the funniest) thing going on SDL. It sucks that it might lead to the end of Fire & Desire, but I'm ok with that as I think Sonya has been ready for a singles push.

Edge, does indeed still have it, although AJ Styles hurt his shoulder trying to oversell the spear.
Yeah. With the beard, he definitely looks aged, but he performed well in the ring. Glad he's back. That leaves Paige to return now.

Beth Phoenix...wow. she is tough. That was a nasty cut on her head.
Dude, I missed the bump she took so I was like, "When did Beth dye her hair?" That's how much she bled last night. She was definitely concussed from the looks of the replay, but she soldiered on like a trooper. Props to her.

Haven’t watched in a while but happy to see they went with McIntrye to win the Rumble. I’d be all for him beating Brock but that’s not gonna happen

I thought it was interesting to see them Pull Lashley and Rusev from the Rumble match.

My intial thought was they did not want Lashley and Brock to face off. Maybe, just maybe, they are saving that faceoff till after Mania.

I honestly want to see those two go at it.

I hope they put the belt on McIntyre at Mania. He is a credible dude who is believable in beating Brock. I am actually looking forward to Raw tonight.

I also loved how they had Rollins in the Rumble. I am glad they didnt have him win though. Should be a good ongoing feud and now I believe Aleister Black and Ricochet enter in to help Joe and KO feud....and dont forget the Viking Raiders in that one.

Hope AJa shoulder isn't messed up too bad.

On the women's side I actually hope Charlotte goes after Bailey and not Becky. But somehow I think that Baslor will be who Charlotte takes on at Mania somehow some way.

I really enjoyed the Rumble last night. Bryan vs Wyatt was really good. So was Becky vs Askua. The woman's Rumble was good but predictable. Belaire really shined, they put her over big time.
The Men's rumble was good once Brock was gone. Just so typical. I am just so ready for Brock to go away. I just don't see the point of him being there.
I loved the way they booked the men's rumble. Almost everyone had a purpose and reason to be there. Sorry bro, but this is why Brock is here. I loved how they used him. As the big bad that no know can overcome and get other guys over. You might have hated Brock for tossing everyone out but that's the point, they wanted you to hate him and it worked like gangbusters last night. It might have been quick but Keith Lee looked like an equal to Brock in there and Drew got a monster pop for tossing out Brock.

Kinda surprised they didn't have him drop the title.
Wonder if they had the results yesterday if they would have. My question is, what was the violation and did they rest Charlotte as well considering they've been dating for a minute.

Not only do you lose one president, you lose two... in one day. Good job, Vince...

It's actually sounding like they were fired. Something big has to be going down. You dont lose two C level execs (arguably the two most power non McMahons in the company) that have been there a decade plus for no good reason.

There has to be something big behind this. Has to be.

Also, the stock is absolutely tanking in after hours trading (down 20% in one hour) and they had no successors named, further indicating this being a sudden decision. Watch this story. It's a canary in the coal mine for something bigger.
