A good companion to wrestlemania 5
8 January 2001 | by (Stoke, England) – See all my reviews

In its pre pay per view days the Royal Rumble was a less important event than it would later become. The 1989 event did however help start the trend of the Rumble setting the scene for Wrestlemania. The opening 3 fall six man was fairly entertaining but was followed by a turkey in the form of a ladies title match which had no business being part of such a major event. The super posedown predictably ended in Rick Rude attacking the ultimate warrior after the two contestants had traded poses to show off their chemically enhanced upper bodies. The Rumble match itself was entertaining but lacked tension because their was no Wrestlemania title shot at stake as there was in future years.
