Passable Rumble
19 August 2010 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

The Royal Rumble of 2004 was a Very passable Royal Rumble Indeed.

My Ratings:

1. Evolution (Batista and Ric Flair) defeated. The Dudley Boyz to retain World Tag Team Championships in a Tag Team Tables Match

This match was okay opener but could have gone for longer time period.

Rating: 4/10 ( D- )

2. Rey Mysterio defeated. Jamie Noble w/Nidia to retain Cruiserweight Championship

I thought Cruiserweight Matches were a cool type of concept but this match bored me to death. And with the whole Nidia being blind thing was just stupid. Mysterio picks up the win in a very sloppy Cruiserweight match.

Rating: 3/10 ( D- )

3. Eddie Guerrero defeated. Nephew Chavo Guerrero Jr (with Eddie's Brothers , Chavo's Dad Chavo Classic) in a Family Feud which exploded at the Royal Rumble. The match had some good action in it with Eddie Picking up the win.

Rating: 6/10 ( C+ )

4. Brock Lesnar defeated. Hardcore Holly to retain the WWE Championship This was Hardcore's only shot at a major World Championship and this had been boiling in the pit ever since Lesnar injured Holly in 2002. A short boring, dull match, the hype did disappoint.

Rating: 3/10 ( D- )

5. Triple H fought Shawn Michaels in a Last Man Stadning Match to a Double Count- Out. This match was really well executed and I liked the fact that in the promo's or Video Packages they had the History of DX too and that this was a match in the ages.

Rating: 7/10 ( B )

6. Chris Benoit last Eliminated The Big Show to win the 2004 Royal Rumble. Benoit had lasted around 62 minutes and won the Royal Rumble. This was a very precious and proud moment for the WWE. Benoit going to Wrestlemania to Main Event it for the first time!

Rating: 8/10 ( B+ )

Overall: A Very Passable Royal Rumble to kick things of for 2004 year.

Rating (Overall) : 5 out of 10 ( D )
