1. In the opening match Edge b. Dolph Ziggler to retain the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in 20:45.
I thought this was an entertaining match, and it was nice to see Edge pull out the unprettier. While Ziggler may not have won the world title here he still has a good shot in the future.
2. In the second match The Miz (w/Alex Riley) b. Randy Orton to retain the WWE Championship in 19:50.
This was another entertaining match as The Miz is at the top of his game. He has made me want to see him each and every week, and its been great listening to his promos. If Alberto Del Rio does decide that he wants to face him, this match will be nothing short of awesome! These were two exciting matches with plenty of action and near falls.
3. In a Fatal Four Way Match Eve Torres b. Layla, Michelle McCool, and Natalya to become the new WWE Divas Champion in 5:20.
This will be Eve's second reign as the Divas Champion so we'll see what's in store for her. As for the match itself, it was short and it could have gone either way based on how the match ended. For what its worth I do find Divas matches entertaining if only the WWE gave them time to shine, and longer matches.
4. The Royal Rumble Match was won by none other than ALBERTO DEL RIO in 70:10!
I thought this year's Rumble Match was pretty good, and it was nice to see some former superstars like Diesel and Booker T. While both men obviously did not last long it was exciting while they were in there. There was a spectacular move by John Morrison to save himself from getting eliminated. (Highly suggest that you check this out) CM Punk and Nexus did their part by completely owning the match mid way through. I kept saying to myself just wait till Cena comes out and he'll quickly eliminate the group which he did. I agree that it was nice to see a fresh face win the rumble in the likes of Del Rio. Del Rio fulfilled his destiny by winning the Royal Rumble, and now he can crown his achievements at WrestleMania by becoming either the World Heavyweight Champion or the WWE Champion!! Tune in to see the direction in which Del Rio takes!
