"Royal Rumble 2010" is nothing special. Plain and simple. Most of this PPV lacked originality, and by the end of the broadcast, I was underwhelmed.
1) ECW Championship Christian (champion) v. Ezekiel Jackson ---Undoubtedly the best match on the card, and I think the Atlanta crowd's participation will confirm that. I confess I haven't watched the SyFy program in a long while, but I think I will give it another look if it's going to produce solid matches like this. Christian has always been a great in-ring performer, but Jackson really stepped up to the plate. For some reason, his brutish strength is more appealing than most superstars with this kind of dominant gimmick. The action was back-and-forth, with both men coming up with some good counters to familiar spots. The pace was always quick, and the slower moments were still intense. I am very surprised at how much I enjoyed this match, and look forward to these two mixing it up some more. "7.0 / 10" ________________________________________
2) United States Championship The Miz (champion) v. MVP ---This match was added to the card because Teddy Long tired of Miz's backstage cockiness. Well...actually I later learned it was because of the squash Women's Championship Match, but more on that later. I like how The Miz has come along in recent months, and MVP usually entertains me. But tonight, these two seemed off. Miz was in top form, when he used his quick offense to impress the crowd, or when he sold MVP's attacks as well as he did. But MVP somehow didn't impress me. Even the Atlanta crowd started to cheer for Miz, especially when MVP's "babyface revenge" failed to get some fan sympathy. The match was pretty short, and it's not bad or anything. Just unremarkable.

1.[ECW TITLE] CHRISTIAN VS EZEKIEL JACKSON-the opening match would pit Christian against the bigger Jackson. The match was as one would expect with Christian having to use his speed while Jackson dominated with strength. Jackson looked really good here as did Christian as he always does, really good opening match. The pace was good and the chemistry between them was on point as well. Christian ends up hitting his finisher for the win.
2.[U.S. TITLE] THE MIZ VS MVP-now like I always say I am a fan of The Miz so any time he is wrestling I am watching. I also liked M.V.P. who got this title shot on the spot as Teddy Long added the match a short time earlier. Both were good in this but not as good as they could have been together. Luckily they had some really good matches later but on to this one. The match while not the best was good with M.V.P. getting off to a good start taking it to Miz. But Miz would come back at the end keeping his title with a nice roll up or as I like to say, small package.
3.[WWE TITLE] SHEAMUS VS RANDY ORTON-this one had a great led in that night with Legacy members Cody Rhodes and Ted Dibiase talking to Randy. The thing that made it great was how they came to him separate, and well it was good. This was another good match with both guys getting in some good shots at each other. They take it to each other like good heels do targeting body parts and such. As with the conversations Orton had earlier with legacy that comes into play as Cody comes down. He then of course gets involved which gets Randy DQ'd, that of course leads him to attack Cody.
4.[WOMEN'S TITLE] MICHELLE MCCOOL VS MICKIE JAMES-I don't know what other people think but I loved LayCool to be honest.Read more ›
This was a good Royal Rumble ppv. Aside from the squash divas match, every match was solid to good and the finish to the Rumble was a great surprise. Personally, I feel like the road to WrestleMania has gotten off to a strong start, and I'm interested to see where they go from here, which is exactly what the Royal Rumble is supposed to accomplish. Not the best Rumble ppv ever, but certainly a strong one, and one I would consider purchasing or at least renting. This review does incluce SPOILERS, for those of you who do not wish to know the finishes do not read further. Matches are rated out of 5 stars (*****).
1. ECW Championship Match Christian (c) vs. Ezekial Jackson
Surprisingly good opener, the fact that Christian got a good match out of Jackson should cement him as one of the better workers in the company. I doubt Triple H could get a good match out of Jackson. Anyway, it was a typical good Christian title defense, the likes of which we've seen on ECW many times, but that's not a bad thing at all. Lots of near falls at the end, with Christian eventually hitting the Killswitch for the pin. ***1/4
2. United States Title Match The Miz (c) vs. MVP
This match was not originally scheduled on the card, but was added by Teddy Long (who somehow now has power over Raw superstars?) in a segment after the opening match. Match was solid, with some good near falls at the end, but nothing outstanding. Opener was better, shockingly. Still a pretty good match though, Miz wins with a roll-up. **1/2
