It's the dream of every superstar to headline WrestleMania. For one man out of 30, the dream becomes reality at the Royal Rumble. Whoever outlasts 29 other competitors earns himself a championship match at WrestleMania 26. The superstars of Raw and Smackdown, including past winners Randy Orton, John Cena, Edge, and Rey Mysterio, and superstars looking to add this win to their resume, including Wade Barrett, Kane, Kofi Kingston, Sheamus, John Morrison, The Miz, Mark Henry (and more) will do everything to overpower and outlast the competition as the Road to WrestleMania 27 begins at the Royal Rumble.

World Heavyweight Title
Edge vs. Dolph Ziggler w/ Vickie Guerrero:
A very very solid and unique opening contest from the always reliable Edge, and the great up and coming star Ziggler. The angle is a little stupid, namely Edge will lose the title if he uses the spear, but this match features excellent chemistry and technical display. Definitely give this one a look; the best title match of the evening!
The Miz w/ Alex Riley vs. Randy Orton:
As much as it pains me to admit, The Miz actually puts on a decent show down here with Orton. There are a few things wrong with this one, however. Way too much outside interference and cheap "storyline pushers" for me. But nonetheless, Orton does a brilliant job of selling his character which really helps push The Miz along. This is the best match these two have together, and easily better than Miz/Cena at Wrestlemania.
Natalya vs. Michelle McCool vs. Layla vs. Eve Torres:
Although the weakest on the night, this is a pretty good one. Eve Torres is most definitely the best female worker the WWE has and she wins back the belt in a pretty good ending.
First Ever 40-Man Royal Rumble Match:
Without writing an entire book about this one, I'll just sum it up and say that there was A LOT going on in this year's rumble. For starters, as expected, the match is reeeaaallllyyyy long. Not sure of exact times, but I would guess easily 70-80 minutes.
A couple of noteworthy items in this match included the return of Booker T and Diesel, which were both pretty underwhelming.
The rumble also starts and endures a long period where CM Punk's new Nexus dominates, which regretably slows the pace down to a crawl.
The ending, while very unpredictable, was very exciting. The last twenty minutes or so were enough to save the humdrum and laggish beginning.
All in all, this was one of the better Royal Rumbles I've ever seen. There was a lot of talent and different faces, with plenty of innovation and charisma. It was a great way to end a great show.
Pick up a copy of this as soon as you can. Wrestlemania 27 was a huge letdown, so let this serve as a refresher from the poor event that WM was. It has a few extras and is available at a pretty good price. Enjoy !
