Jim Ross has checked in with his thoughts on the WWE Royal Rumble 2010 show.
ECW Title Match
Christian vs. Ezekial Jackson
Ross – Christian had a better bout with inexperienced but impressive Ezekiel Jackson than likely what many thought going into Sunday night. The ECW Champion is underrated in my opinion.
US Title Match
Miz vs. MVP
Miz vs MVP was a surprise addition to the show and I would have liked to have seen more of them. Looks like we will perhaps in the future. Miz has a million dollar mouth.
Raw World Title Match
Sheamus vs. Randy Orton
The Atlanta crowd seemed to favor Randy Orton in RKO’s failed attempt to regain the WWE Title. Sheamus seems to be one of the handful of stars w/o a tattoo as my wife noted… I enjoyed the WWE Title bout because it was a fresh match. Orton/Legacy issues will be fun to follow. I thought I had it figured out but now I’m not so sure.
Smackdown Title Match
Undertaker vs. Rey Mysterio
Undertaker vs Mysterio was solid and had some unique innovation. Both guys are so valuable and talented. I wonder if the Deadman broke his nose?
Royal Rumble Match
CM Punk had a memorable Rumble match. Great mic work. Punk’s hairy chest, as I pointed out during the show on Twitter, makes him look even more like a villain. Punk had a stellar night.
Good interchange w/ HHH and HBK. I thought one of those two would win the Rumble match and I was wrong.
Without question, the Rumble match was the overwhelming attraction of the evening.
R Truth shocked me eliminating both Big Show AND Mark Henry simultaneously.
Edge was the obvious major surprise of the night. I admire how hard Edge has obviously worked to be able to return to the ring ahead of schedule.
Edge was the star of the night and him winning the Royal Rumble disrupts the Road to Wrestlemania and makes February’s Elimination Chamber PPV more intriguing. That PPV is only 3 weeks way. I like the episodic way that several issues are progressing.
