it's time it's time it's Vader time!
8 November 2002 | by (Old Hickory, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

This year's Royal Rumble took place in San Jose, CA with Vince McMahon & Curt Hennig doing commentary. The event started off with a pretty good match between the very strong Ahmed Johnson & Jeff Jarrett. Ahmed hit a few powermoves nicely but Jeff ended up getting disqualified after hitting Johnson in the head with a guitar. The Smoking Gunns retained their tag titles by defeating the Body Donnas, not a very good match here as the Body Donnas are one of the worst tag teams ever! Sunny wore a real short skirt and looked hot in this match though! Razor Ramon then lost his IC title to Goldust with some help from the 1-2-3 Kid. Decent match at times but too much running around the ring, but we did get to see the debut of the very hot Marlena, aka Terri Runnels in this match so that was a nice bonus. Then we move onto the Royal Rumble, one of the most exciting matches of the year. 30 participants each coming out between the 90 second and 2 minute mark. HBK won the event for the 2nd straight year eliminating Diesel with the superkick. We also saw the debut of Vader and this was I believe Stone Cold Steve Austin's first PPV as well. Then we had one of the most boring matches in WWF history as the Undertaker defeated Bret Hart by DQ when Diesel pulled the ref out. Terrible decision to have this match after the Rumble, terrible ending and just a terribly boring match! Really hurt the event overall which was decent up to this point. Bret Hart worked on the leg far too much in the much and there were few high spots, Undertaker hit a nice tombstone but that was about it. Overall I'd give this event a 6.
