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.
Whenever WWE has PPV's lined up such as this one, New Years Revolution and No Mercy, you can guarantee that they will fail to deliver, and this is exactly what I'm on about. Some factors were beyond the WWE's control like they had to medically disqualify several superstars from the card like Super Crazy (liver problems), Bobby Lashley (liver problems), The Great Khali (not that anyone was complaining) and Tatanka. Mark Henry was scheduled to wrestle Batista on the card but he was injured on the Saturday Night's Main Event special so his replacement was Mr Kennedy, but there was no storyline purpose to it.
Held before a crowd of 8,750 in Indianapolis, Indiana, the following results were: Gregory Helms defeated Matt Hardy to retain the WWE Cruiserweight Championship in a decent match - Paul London & Brian Kendrick defeated Jamie Noble and Kid Kash in a good match to retain the WWE Tag Team Championships - Finlay defeated William Regal to retain the United States Championship which bored fans stupid - Mr Kennedy defeated Batista via DQ in a passable match - The Undertaker defeated The Big Show in an abysmal Punjabi Prison Match - Ashley won a lame gauntlet match which also involved Kristal, Michelle McCool and Jillian Hall - King Booker defeated Rey Mysterio to win the WWE Championship in a good match.
WWE NEEDS to end this stupid brand extension. The main eventers on Smackdown! are Booker, Batista, The Undertaker and possibly Rey Mysterio, but who have you got on Raw? HBK, HHH, John Cena, Kane, Randy Orton, Edge and even Umaga! Perhaps the rumor of Cena going to Smackdown! will help but WWE really needs to pull their finger out if they want to survive! Overall Grade - C
