Avid fan of Wrestling writes about WWE, AEW, NJPW. I love to write stories, articles and poems.


The First WWE Pay-Per-View of the Decade, the Royal Rumble was one of the best Pay-Per-Views ever. But even in the best there are some flaws and I am going to just pinpoint those negatives in this article. We had a lot of awesome moments, to relive them or know what they are please read my ‘Best Moments of the Royal Rumble 2020’ article.

Kickoff Show

The Kickoff Show was indeed really good except for one thing and that thing is named Sam Roberts. Sam Roberts has been insulting so many superstars for a long time now and he continued doing the same at the Royal Rumble. Sam Roberts is the most annoying person in the WWE right now. Roberts this time around was talking trash about Daniel Bryan, then was insulting R-Truth. I truly hope Sam Roberts stops talking trash about other Superstars.

Bayley vs Lacey Evans (SmackDown Women's Championship)

For a story that was the top story in the SmackDown Women’s division, this was such a disappointment. The match lasted for 10 minutes. But it did nothing for the story; it didn’t do anything for Lacey who the WWE Universe was getting behind. To be fair they were given a tough spot in the card. Their match was right after the Women’s Royal Rumble Match, which was awesome. Even then this match was not that good even for a TV match. I am sorry if I am harsh but I truly had high hopes for this match but it was just disappointing for me. The finish also came out of nowhere after Bayley reversed the BME she rolled up Lacey for the pin and she was holding the tights of Lacey, but to be honest in that position holding the tights did absolutely nothing and we got Michael Cole yelling “She’s holding the tights, she’s holding the tights” – Oh Shut Up Cole! But to be fair to the ladies, I wish these two get another match which I am sure will happen, were these two have a lot of time to wrestle because I know for a fact these two can put on a fantastic match.


30 - Women Royal Rumble

This was one of the best Royal Rumble Matches in recent times. I loved this match but there were a few things that were pretty disappointing. Firstly, Dakota Kai and Tegan Nox were both in the match but they never faced off against each other, especially after the two brawled the night before at World’s Collide and they didn’t even have a match there.

Secondly, I do not understand why superstars who trying to eliminate someone, hold on to them tightly so they do not fall. It makes no sense. You trying to eliminate someone from the top rope, I would push him or her out without holding tightly onto him or her. There was one point were a lot of women were trying to eliminate Charlotte including Natalya who was supposedly trying to eliminate Charlotte. But Natalya instead of eliminating her she was clearly just hugging on to Charlotte’s legs preventing her from getting eliminated. If you are trying to portray that you are trying to eliminate someone do not blatantly just hug onto them, you can catch them and act like you are pushing them instead of just hugging onto them tightly. For example, Natalya can learn how to do that from Shayna, Shayna was catching Charlotte and was keeping her from being eliminated but it did look like she was trying to eliminate Charlotte.

30 - Men Royal Rumble

The 30 – Men Royal Rumble match saw Brock Lesnar enter at number 1 and Elias was number 2. The worst part was seeing Brock just take out every superstar one by one. Even though Brock eliminating every superstar back to back built up to make his elimination even more special I was upset because he eliminated so many superstars who were being built to be strong and powerful, such as Eric Rowan, Braun Strowman, Cesaro, Shinsuke Nakamura and Keith Lee. This also undermined the returning superstars as well such as MVP and John Morrison. Morrison got eliminated in less than 10 seconds. It was sad to see and we did not even get that special Kofi Rumble moment this year either. Moreover Kofi did not get his revenge against Brock Lesnar.

The one of the best moments in the Rumble was the return of Edge. And freaking the cameras did not even catch Edge’s first spear back. It was sad.

The last thing that I felt was one of the worst moments was Baron Corbin eliminating Matt Riddle in very quick fashion.
