A Mediocre Royal Rumble
presypclhs | New Jersey USA | 02/09/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)
"The 2006 version of WWE's Royal Rumble featured a good Royal Rumble and, a mediocre undercard, and two fairly poor main events.
1. Cruiserweight Invitational: Kid Kash (C) v. Funaki v. Jaime Noble v. Paul London v. Nunzio v. Gregory Helms
This was a pretty good match with alot of high flying moves and some solid technical wrestling. Its one of the stronger matches on the card but it wasnt given nearly enough time to really take off. Predictable ending.
2. Ashley Massaro v. Mickie James (with Trish Stratus as Special Guest Referee)
Generally speaking, the women's division on Raw is fairly poor, with the division mainly consisting of Ashley, Mickie and Trish, and this match shows just how weak the division is. Ashley completely tanked in her first major match while Mickie James proved to be average. Trish made the match somewhat interesting as the guest referee but there isnt much to see here.
3. JBL v. Boogeyman
This match is worth seeing only for the Boogeyman's antics. Otherwise, there's nothing to talk about here. Very weak match, one of the worst I've seen on a PPV in awhile. Complete squash.
4. The 2006 Royal Rumble
Although you could figure out down to two or three men who would win by the time numbers one and two came out, this was a fairly good Royal Rumble. A couple surprise returns and a surprise entrant made the match even more interesting, and Rob Van Dam looked good in his first match in almost a year. This is the strongest match of the night, but it was really underplayed and the fact that it wasnt even the main event, but the fourth match out of six indicates that whoever won the match wont be in the main event at Wrestlemania.
5. Edge (C) v. John Cena
This match was decent. Edge is capable of putting on some very good matches and when you put Cena in the ring with someone who can wrestle, he usually looks decent. His gimmick is still revolting, and its a shame that Edge is being pushed to the back so that Cena can be champion again. His 9 month reign was fairly abysmal and its hard to be positive about his second title run, but so long as he's bringing in extra revenue for the company with his mediocre rap record, he'll be the champion.
6. Kurt Angle (C) v. Mark Henry
This match was absolutely awful. There is no reason that Mark Henry should ever be in the main event of a major pay per view like the Royal Rumble. Angle did all he could to make this match worth watching, but he failed. Fortunately, it was rather short. The Undertaker's appearance after the match was the most interesting part, though it could have been saved for the next episode of Smackdown! so that the Royal Rumble could have been the main event, as it should be.
The Royal Rumble is my favorite event of the year, but outside of the Rumble match itself, there is nothing really worth watching here, except maybe for the Cruiserweight Invitational. If you really love Rumble matches, buy this, otherwise, dont waste your money as the rest of the event isnt nearly good enough to justify dropping more than a couple dollars on."

"To the person below me, I hate to prove you wrong, but its actually going to be Kurt Angle vs Randy Orton for the World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania. Rey is going to lose his championship match at No Way Out while Angle defeates Undertaker. Taker is also going to face Mark Henry at Mania and send his winning streak to 14-0
6-man Texas Tornado Cruiserweight Invitational
WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Kid Kash(c) vs Jamie Noble vs Funaki vs Nunzio vs Paul London vs Gregory Helms
Definitely a good opener for the PPV. Some good cruiserweight action, including London getting some serious air time and a good ending with Gregory Helms pinning Funaki with the Shining Wizard to win the Cruiserweight title
Match rating: 3/5
Ashley vs Mickie James
Trish Stratus Special Referee
Absolute waste of time match. All 3 women are hot, but looks does not equal good wrestling
Match rating: 1/5
JBL vs Boogeyman
Another waste of time match. Too much worm eating and running around and not enough wrestling. JBL loses after a Pumphandle Slam. Nice job, Vince
Match rating: 1/5
2006 Royal Rumble match
Triple H and Rey Mysterio enter at 1 and 2, respectively and last the entire match. Throughout the match, Triple H does a great job of hanging in there, nearly being eliminated at least a dozen times. Shawn Michaels gets eliminated by Shane McMahon and Rey Mysterio wins after eliminating Triple H and Randy Orton. Surprise entrants Tantaka, Eugene and Goldust
Match rating: 4/5
John Cena vs Edge(c)
A regular John Cena match, On the defensive the entire match, comes back with 3 or 4 moves, locks in the STFU and we have a new WWE Champion. The rematch the next night on Raw was a much better match for John Cena. He was much more agressive and show more dominance in that one match than he did the past 9 months he was the WWE Champion. I hope he can keep it up heading into Wrestlemania against Triple H
Match rating: 3/5
Kurt Angle(c) vs Mark Henry
World Heavyweight Championship
Absolutely disappointing match. I wonder what Vince was thinking putting someone as good as Kurt Angle in the ring with stupid Mark Henry, especially after Henry injured Batista. Angle wins after a rollup. Undertaker makes his return, sending a message to Angle that he wants the World Heavyweight Championship and makes the ring collapse.
Match rating: 2/5
All in all, if you can get a copy of this PPV from someone else, then do it"

"For Starters, this PPV was horrible. There really is nothing else to say.
1. Cruiserweight Invitational Open Match for the Cruiserweight Title
A pretty good match, however no one cares about the cruiserweights. Not a bad way to start the show however, as it was fast paced. **1/4
2. Mickie James vs. Ashley Special Referee Trish Stratus
This match was horrible, and had nothing riding on the line. Was only used to further the fued with Mickie James and Trish Stratus. For the love of god skip this unless you want to see trish who's attire isn't very revealing so don't waste your time. 1/4*
3. The Boogeyman vs. JBL
One word: SKIP. A complete squash match, and also a complete trash match. DUD
4. Royal Rumble Match
I didn't know why this match was before the main events but I would find out later. This was match of the night, although that's not saying much. As far as rumbles go it was pretty good, but Rey winning the Royal Rumble made me sick. I can safely say that the second he won, I went into my basement and broke things, including a bone in my hand on the punching bag. A bit of overreacting, probably considering there was nothing I could do to change things, but I was pretty freakin' pissed off. I enjoy Mysterio in the ring, but I think he wins too much to be even remotely believable and since Eddie's passing he has been a total charity case. You can bet your bottom dollar that I wasn't pleased when he won the title at wrestlemania. ***1/4
5. WWE Title Match: John Cena (c) vs. Edge
We finally had a deserving/good champion in edge, and a meer 3 weeks later he was taken away from us by the abomination of a wrestler/personality/talker known as John Cena. His rapper gimmick makes me almost as sick as his wrestling skills. I don't care if people call him a "brawler" if that's the case then he's an abysmal brawler. As far as a match is conserned this one's ok, however it seemed like a raw match. If you actually buy this ppv give this a look, one is all you'll need. **1/4
6. World Heavyweight Title Match: Kurt Angle (c) vs. Mark Henry
Ugh, just Ugh. Kurt did all he could to make this watchable however Henry is far too bad to allow it. Absolutely shockingly poor match here. Kurt wins, thank god, and that's all you need to know. Don't bother with this one. 1/2* if you are very, very generous.
All in all this is one of the worst/most disapointing PPVs I have ever seen. It just made me sick to my stomach. The Undertaker coming out at the end of the Angle Match was the only thing keeping me from taking this tape out of the VCR and immediately setting it on fire. Please for the sake of Africa don't buy this or even look at it in the store it will blind you with its awefulness.
UPDATE! Since reviewing this ppv I have in fact set the tape on fire. I felt it was best for everyone.
What kind of main event was that?

"okay, for one thing it is called the royal rumble so the royal rumble should be the main event not some stupid performance from mark henry.
MATCH ONE:cruier wait open invitaional,
great high flying matchthe cruiser weights rock but obviously vince mcmahon dosent think so. 8/10
MATCH TWO: Mickie James vs Ashley Trish as special ref,
it was okay but Ashly is hot but she cant wrestle the best part was the ending when it ended 4/10
Match THREE: Okay the bogey man cant wrestle. He is entertaining but not ion matches. Why stick a good wrestler such as JBL in the ring with some freak. I dont get it. 5/10
MATCH FOUR:Royal Rumblew match, this was awesome and even better since Rey wonthis was the best match of the night. If this was the Main event i would give the ppv 5 stars instead of 3. 9/10
Match FIVE: John Cena vs. Edge, It was good but not great
Match SIX: Mark Henry VS. Kurt Angle WHY put some 1 as bad as Mark Henry at the main event of such a big ppv why! 4/10"
