This match wasn’t a nasty match in any respect nevertheless whenever you examine it to the opposite matches on the cardboard it simply would not maintain up. There have been no stakes to this match-up both which does not assist elevate the bout. It seems the feud could also be over between Sheamus and Shorty G simply as rapidly because it started. It was good to see Shorty G get loads of time to showcase himself towards Sheamus however as soon as the Irishmen linked with a Brogue Kick it was over.

One other match that wasn’t dangerous nevertheless did not absolutely appear to click on, it might be due to when the match occurred on the cardboard. One thing felt off on this match and the finish simply fell form of flat. The story of Lacy Evans is sort of intriguing together with her daughter nevertheless you by no means felt such as you absolutely needed her to win the title. This match goes forward of Sheamus and Shorty G due to it being a title match so not less than it was a match that had some further that means behind it.

These two men have extraordinarily good chemistry and had a really fluid match-up. They’ve been feuding for fairly a while now and at one time it concerned Zelina Vega after which it become which one among them would problem for the US Championship, so the match had some story to it. Humberto fought effectively because the underdog babyface and Andrade fought effectively because the heel that is only one step forward.

These two men have been deep right into a feud for what looks as if eternally. This match opened the present and noticed Roman Reigns cheered closely towards the extraordinarily disliked Baron Corbin. They might make the most of a lot of the world which made for a enjoyable watch on tv. The utilization of Roode/Ziggler and The Usos additionally added to the physicality of the match and made sense for his or her story. I actually get pleasure from this match and was pleased to see Roman get the victory and hopefully transfer on to his next problem.

Quantity 4. Becky Lynch vs. Asuka

This was one among Becky Lynch’s greatest title defenses in fairly a while. The two have exceptional chemistry collectively and their types match so completely. That is why I am shocked that this match did not go into my high three and is a testomony to how nice this Royal Rumble occasion actually was. Becky performed her a part of this story very effectively and the ending of the match whereas some individuals had been upset with, I believed made essentially the most sense to conclude the story. It seems Becky will stroll into the identical occasion she walked out of as a champion final yr for WrestleMania and you’ve got to marvel who can be her opponent?

Quantity 3. Women’s Royal Rumble Match

A match that appeared to be destined to match of the night time falls to the quantity three spot in my rating it is solely due to how the opposite two matches carried out. This match had the whole lot from legends returning, to NXT stars getting tons of shine and even a comedic spot from Santina Marella. Charlotte would enter within the quantity 17 spot and take her spot atop the Women’s division the place she belongs. Shayna Baszler and Bianca Belair additionally had unimaginable showings on this match. The query shifting ahead is can we get one other match with Becky Lynch for the title or does the Queen transfer to Smackdown and problem Bayley?

Quantity 2. Daniel Bryan vs. The Fiend

This match was an absolute on the spot traditional and exceeded my already excessive expectations that I had. The crowd was absolutely behind Bryan and the Fiend regarded simply weak sufficient to make the group imagine an upset was possible. The strap was used completely and The Fiend regarded sturdy to finish the match however the story is how over Bryan is as soon as once more. The WWE now has a robust babyface once more with The YES Motion and I would like to see the place this story goes next.

#1. Males’s Royal Rumble Match

This match has a whole lot of potential to be seen as top-of-the-line Royal Rumble matches of all time. That is due to the emotional curler coaster WWE put us on within the occasion. From Lesnar’s dominance being challenged by The New Day after which Keith Lee and eventually it being ended by Drew McIntyre. You then have a returning Edge who blew the roof off the constructing making his extremely anticipated return to the ring. Not to point out the highest ten picks being absolute star after star concluding with Seth Rollins faction making an attempt to take over the occasion. The match then finishes with Edge, Orton, McIntyre and Reigns with The Chosen One lastly getting the highlight he deserves.
