It's even more hilarious that he's paid so much for an appearance when all it involves is him standing in the ring next to someone else who does his talking for him.
I'm just thinking about this royal rumble as it hasn't been announced that the winner receives anything, there still seems to be no point to it. I can expect wwe to give daniel bryan the win hoping that it will make up for him not winning in the past. Realistically that the worst thing they can do.
Did anyone find the group at ringside cheering for Roman really odd. They looked like plants, the way the camera focused on them and Heyman seemed to laugh when he referenced their chants. It was a group of at most ten and the camera panned to them on 3 or 4 occasions. They were the only ones chanting and everyone else was just sat round in silence. Really strange. If you watch back the opening Lesner/Reigns segment you will see what i mean.
According to the Network schedule, the Greatest Royal Rumble is going to be 5 hours (5pm - 10pm), not including the hour pre-show at 4pm. Does anyone know if there's a match on the pre-show? I actually won't be back until around 7 tomorrow, so I'll be watching it a few hours behind. Thank god the Network allows you to watch things from the beginning that are currently showing.
I literally had to work out how it was possible for seven title matches on the show, with the lack of Women, but I assume one will be the Cruiserweight Championship? There has been next to no build up for the matches / feuds, so I assume VTs will be light, and it might be pretty pacey, despite the running time. I genuinely don't even know what all the matches are, but I'm still excited. I'll be ordering Domino's in, which I never do for the typical 1 am-start PPV.
I wish it wasn't another 6 hour marathon, but I'm still rather looking forward to the Rumble. Like the UK shows, it's nice to watch it in the evening with a few beers rather than with a can of Monster at 4am.
I think the winner is getting an Andre style trophy.
