With an estimated attendance of around 40,000 expected to be at the Alamodome this Sunday in San Antonio Texas, the 30th Anniversary of the Royal Rumble might possibly be the biggest one yet. And we do mean that quite literally, considering Superstars such as Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker, The Big Show, Goldberg, and Braun Strowman are just some of the names confirmed to be tossing people around.
With only one week left to build to the event, Monday Night RAW and SmackDown Live delivered in giving us some pretty big moments. And of course, some not-so-big moments. Read on as we bring to you the five best and five worst moments this week in WWE.
5. WORST - The Undertaker!
Undertaker's gong struck just as Brock Lesnar and Goldberg were about to murder each other and out came The Undertaker. Yes. All three legends in the same ring at the same time. Lesnar. Goldberg. AND THE UNDERTAKER. How could you go wrong?
All they did was stare at each other for a few seconds though. Then RAW went off the air.
5. BEST - The Big Show Scares Braun Strowman Away
Braun Strowman doesn't fight people his own size. And that's fair. Most bullies don't.
4. WORST - The Cruiserweights
Other than the main title feud involving Neville and Rich Swann, RAW keeps throwing Cruiserweights in random matches that involve either an umbrella or Drew Gulak losing.
4. BEST - Mickie James
3. WORST - Universally Predictable
Roman Reigns opened up RAW, talked. Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho interrupted his talking to talk. United States Championship match between Reigns and Jericho happened for the millionth time. Match came to an end due to disqualification for the millionth time.
3. BEST - This Visual Though
Yes, Reigns, Owens, and Jericho are involved in one of the most boring feuds ever, but a cool moment did manage to sneak its way in. After the United States Championship match, Reigns locked Owens into the shake cage and as it lifted into the rafters, Chris Jericho latched on as it rose him into the air like an elevator. And then...
2. WORST - Carmella Takes James Ellsworth Shopping
2. BEST - The Destruction Of The Wyatt Family
Randy Orton and Luke Harper battled for Bray Wyatt's respect in an impressive match to kick off SmackDown Live this week. In the end, RKO OUT OF NOWHERE happened and Harper swallowed the loss, only for his buddy Wyatt to hit him with a Sister Abigail after it was all said and done. How rude. Way to kick a man while he's down, Bray.
1. WORST - Mick Foley's Lack Of Power
Mick Foley's the General Manager of RAW, but he kind of just lets Stephanie McMahon call all the shots. If she disagrees with anything he does, she overrules it and that's that. Why can't Mick Foley challenge her more and try to overrule her overrulings?
1. BEST - Seth Rollins vs. Sami Zayn
You don't always need to have a face vs. heel match to tell a compelling story. Seth Rollins and Sami Zayn proved that on Monday with the best match of the week. The stakes were simple, yet effective. If Zayn lost, he wouldn't earn a spot in the Rumble. If he won, he would take Rollins' spot. You know, because Mick Foley is the worst thing of the week. But from the worst came the best, as the match had great back and forth action that lead to...
BOOOOM... TIME TO PLAY THE GAME...
Triple H's music blasting through the arena, shaking Seth Rollins off his game just enough to allow Sami Zayn to sneak in the 1, 2, 3. Rollins is out and Zayn is in!
Will Sami Zayn win the Rumble this Sunday? #No
Until next week! Lets hope the Royal Rumble delivers some bests and not some worsts!
