The biggest Superstars of RAW and SmackDown! clash at Royal Rumble to determine who will go to WrestleMania 21 as the heavyweight contender. The Road to WrestleMania begins as RAW and SmackDown! present WWE Royal Rumble.
Matt Hardy vs Edge, Chris Benoit vs Orlando Jordan, Kurt Angle vs Eugene, The Undertaker vs Randy Orton, Eddie Guerrero vs Rey Mysterio, John Cena vs Chris Jericho, JBL vs Batista, Hulk Hogan vs Shawn Michaels.
World Heavyweight Title Match: Chris Benoit (c) versus Shawn Michaels versus Triple H. WWE Intercontinental Title Match: Randy Orton (c) versus Cactus Jack. WWE Women's Title Match: Victoria versus Lita.
Match 1 sees La Resistance battle Heavyweight Champion - Chris Benoit and tag team partner Edge. This was OK but nothing more. Edge and Benoit win by DQ when Kane runs in and beats up Edge and Benoit.
The next match sees Intercontinental Champion, Randy Orton taking on Shelton Benjamin. This somehow didn't live up to the billing. Why Ric Flair was there, I do not know and the match was slow.
Next up Lita, Trish, Victoria and Gail Kim battle it out in a poor fatal four way match for Victoria's Women's Title. Trish won, but I couldn't care less. Then Eugene battled The Coach in an hilarious match. This was all comedy but it was enjoyable.
Then in his second match in the evening Chris Benoit puts his title on the line when he faced Kane. This was good, but it went on for far too long (18 minutes) Benoit won with a roll up.
Next up was the Hell in a Cell match between Shawn Michaels and Triple H. This was average in my opinion. It wasn't the best Hell in a Cell match I've seen and this also dragged on for 47 minutes. Triple H won when he gave HBK 3 pedigrees'.
Overall not bad but certainly not perfect!
Benoit/Edge vs La Resistance - 6/10 Benjamin/Orton - 6/10 Lita/Trish/Kim/Victoria - 4/10 Eugene vs Coach - 10/10 (only for comedy) Kane vs Benoit - 7.5/10 HBK vs HHH - 8/10
