Not bad but not too good
22 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Royal Rumble 2006 will go down as a 50-50 pay per view. it had some good matches and bad matches.

1. Kid Kash vs Funaki vs Paul London vs Nunzio vs Jamie Noble vs Gregary Helms. Awesome match. It was kind of slow at first and it was shocking to see a Helms in a Smackdown match when he was on Raw. The match started getting good maybe 5 minutes into it. All 6 of these men continue to amaze fans with there fast and furious moves. The ending was a little disappointing. 5/10 2. JBL vs The Boogyman. Not a good match. Lets face it. I have said it once I will say it again. Just because you look like a great heel or a great face by image dosn't make you a great wrestler. Image is not everything. And these 2 men proved it. JBL did his usual punching and kicking and 1 move then back to punching and kicking. And the boogyman proved why he still has a long way to go. Why they put him in the match with a higher card wrestler is beyond me. Of course it was nice to see Gillan Hall who always looks great now that the mold came of her face. But this match was the worst on the card.2/10 3. Mickie James vs Ashley. Trish Stratus was the guest referee. This match was pointless. It made no sense as to why the womans title wasn't defended and why Trish wasn't wrestling on the card. Mickie James proved she is a great wrestler. A little better and more improved then Ashley who seemed really lost in this match. If you look real carefully you could see Trish mumbling instructions in this match to Ashley who was clearly not ready for a big match.3/10. 4. The Royal Rumble Match. Better then last years. Some new wrestlers were in it and some old ones that you never thought you would see again like Tatanka and Goldust. The ending was surprising and it was a little sad knowing that Rey Mysterio finally gets put into the main event picture because Eddie Guerrero passed away. But this Rumble match was OK. Of course we could have done without the Sprit Sqaud who interrupted the match before it started. 5. Edge vs John Cena. Not a bad match. Edge does his best to carry Cena through this match who amazingly did more then 1 move this time instead of his usual punching and kicking and doing his FU. Edge got great heat from the crowd. I was disappointed that Edge lost the title to Cena. Edge is clearly the better wrestler then Cena and why he didn't get to keep the title longer is beyond me. 7/10. 6. Kurt Angle vs Mark Henry. This match was OK. Kurt Angle did his best to carry the much heavier and slower Mark Henry who seemed tired out after 5 minutes. Mark Henry might be a great heel but this match was slow and kind of boring and surprisingly short. 5/10
