Much like it has done in the past, the Royal Rumble pay-per-view brought the WWE Universe a night of surprises.
This year’s spectacular was headlined by The Rock ending CM Punk’s staggering 434-day title reign and taking home the WWE championship for the first time in a decade. The victory on Sunday, Jan. 27 was foreshadowed by his passionate and inspiring pre-match comments. It was a nice moment to see Miami’s son celebrate with his mother, Ata.
The match wasn’t without controversy with The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns) striking in the darkness and nearly costing The Rock the title. The Spanish announce table got some revenge during the battle. Guess it was tired of being used and abused in matches. I’m sure there were some fans who were thinking The Undertaker was reading to make his grand entrance when the lights turned off.
