Royal Rumble Match: Randy Orton wins the Royal Rumble eliminating Roman Reigns

The Viper is back in the main event picture after winning a fun Royal Rumble with a number of amazing moments.  From Jack Gallagher jumping off the top with an open umbrella, Baron Corbin shockingly eliminating Braun Strowman, Luke Harper turning on Bray Wyatt, Lesnar getting eliminated by Goldberg in quick fashion, to the Goldberg/Undertaker confrontation, what the match lacked in surprise entrants was made up for in theatrics.  Once the match got down to the final four of Orton, Wyatt, Jericho, & Reigns, Jericho was the first to go via Reigns’ Superman Punch, followed by Wyatt being eliminated by Reigns.  But, just when you thought we were on the verge of an Alamodome revolt, with Reigns winning for the second time in three years, Randy Orton hit an RKO and threw Reigns over the top.

The match was hurt slightly by the lack real surprise entrants and overall befuddlement at the inclusion of Roman Reigns at #30.  As you know we’re not generally part of the crowd who consistently dumps all over Reigns’ in-ring ability here at CDW, but his entrance as the 30th competitor was an odd choice after the last two years of backlash directed at “The Big Dog” following his 2015 Royal Rumble win.  If it were a troll job to set up Reigns turning into a black hat, I’d be more on board, but the refusal to move Cena from his “Never Give Up”/superhero persona has me skeptical if they’d ever pull the trigger on Reigns either.

Looking ahead, Randy Orton will now challenge whoever emerges from the Elimination Chamber as WWE World Champion.  Leaders in the clubhouse are either John Cena (the new champion), AJ Styles (the former champion), or Bray Wyatt (the logical choice based on storylines).  There were several other potential WrestleMania matches hinted at during the Rumble including, The Undertaker versus Roman Reigns, The Undertaker versus Goldberg, and Goldberg versus Brock Lesnar.  We will surely find out what direction they are heading in the coming weeks.

Well, NONE of that went how I was expecting. Goldberg shockingly defeated Brock Lesnar in under 2 minutes, Team SmackDown lost two battles but won the big war in a near 60-minute elimination match, the IC title remained on the Blue Brand, and the Cruiserweights stay on Raw.

Ospreay captures ROH Television Championship, And Then Drops Title to Scurll – ROH

The ROH Television Championship was a hot potato this weekend in the UK. Independent sensation Will Ospreay captured the Championship from Bobby Fish in his debut for Ring of Honor but 48 hours later Ospreay lost the championship to Marty Scurll, who also recently debuted for the company on this UK run. Conventional wisdom would think a rematch will go down in a few weeks at Final Battle to take care of both Ospreay and Fish’s rematch clause.  Fish was originally scheduled to face CMLL’s Dragon Lee for the championship at Final Battle.
