Goofs

The ending of the match did not go as planned. Batista fell over the top rope while eliminating John Cena and the two men hit the floor at the same time. Mr. McMahon furiously ran to the ring to sort this out and blew out both of his knees sliding into the ring. Since this was unplanned, Vince had not stretched before hand resulting in the injury. The end of the match had to be restarted. See more »

Royal Rumble 2005
16 June 2005 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Probably the best Royal Rumble in years.

Match 1 sees Edge battle Shawn Michaels in a good but very long match. Next up one of the worst wrestlers on the roster - Heidenreich takes on The Undertaker in a boring casket match. Match number 3 sees Bradshaw defend his WWE title against Big Show and Kurt Angle in a surprisingly good contest. The next match up sees Triple H defending his 10th heavyweight title reign against Randy Orton in a great match up.

Next up the Royal Rumble takes place in which 15 Raw superstars and 15 Smackdown! superstars hit the ring to try and win the rumble and face the champion whoever that may be at Wrestlemania 21. Highlights included Tough Enough 3 winner Daniel Puder getting his ass kicked by Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero and Hardcore Holly! All of the superstars beating the crap out of Muhammad Hassan, and Raw superstars vs Smackdown! superstars!

Not a bad PPV at all.

Edge vs HBK - 8/10 Taker vs Heidenreich - 4/10 JBL vs Angle vs Big Show

  • 7.5/10 Triple H vs Orton - 8.5/10 The Royal Rumble match - 9/10
