Royal Rumble...2016 Edition...Preview...

Hi guys. I think Rusty is living kayfabe only right now. So uhhhhh.....spoiler alert? I guess. I haven't heard anything other than basically the obvious. So here's the preview.

Darren Young and Damien Sandow vs.The Dudley Boyz(Bubba Ray Dudley and D-Von Dudley) vs.The Ascension(Konnor and Viktor) vs. Mark Henry and Jack Swagger
I guess this is the preview to find out which tram gets into the Rumble. It also makes no sense with random tag teams and no meaning. Sandow is gonna be on tv? I love Rick Viktor. Whatever.

Some guy just walked into the bar and sat next to me. He smells like a bottle of Heineken. This is why legal weed is irritating. :)

The New Day Vs The Usos for the World Tag Team Championship
Poor Franchesca. I miss thee already. I don't really have anything to say about this match. I know they won't but I want to see The New Day do their own Haka before the match where they say Franchesca instead of Samoa. Heat....from Samoans.

Charlotte vs Becky Lynch for the Women's Championship
The build for this wasn't terrible. Ric is getting actual heat....which is impressive and weird. Becky cut a really good promo on RAW I think last week. This will probably still be pointless.....

Alberto Del Rio vs Kalisto for the United States Championship
Only Stardust and Titus have wrestled more on TV lately. Fifty fifty booking is dumb and so is Del Rio's corner finisher stomp thing. Every opponent has been beaten down so much that they are stunned into holding themselves up in the Tree Of Woe instead of just letting go. Makes me furious when I see it. Go Kalisto. You're the best.

The Lakers are getting killed by the Blazers. Hissss.

Dean Ambrose vs Kevin Owens for the Intercontinental Championship
This was actually the best feud going for awhile. It was compelling without being the focused on thing. It seems to have cooled off lately....I'm wondering who solo Dean Ambrose really connects to. What type of person. Children? People that liked The Shield?  Roman fans? Do they feel obligated? Seems like the Owens/Brock feud isn't happening and they're going with Bray instead. Ice cold Bray. Or it will be Strowman vs Lesnar and be one of the worst matches ever.

Are we a part of the IWC? I don't post anywhere but here. I sometimes read or hear how they can't just book for the small vocal audience on the Internet. Are people trying to say that the things we want wouldn't appeal to everyone? The only time I can get people in my universe into the product is when they do things that appeal to people like us. There doesn't seem to be much logic in the argument. Maybe they're trying to say that my social circle is small and unvaried. Or maybe Punk was right when he said McMahon is a millionaire that should be a billionaire.

The Royal Rumble Match
After watching The Resurrection of Jake The Snake Roberts...can we get Jake in the Rumble? That would be adorable. I have no idea who would be a better "Legend" this year. I think Hacksaw is working for GFW. I certainly won't be holding my breath for a Sunny appearance (ever)...."oh...fuck my ass" will be ingrained for awhile.  Does any injured person make a miraculous recovery? Cesaro and Orton are the only ones that seem mildly realistic. I wonder when DBD will have a five star classic with Okada. Are we really gonna have the TNA Royal Rumble? Cheap Heat never told us if there was 30 healthy guys on the main roster (minus the six that will be eliminated in the preshow...apparently).

Long winded rants. I don't mean to sound sad...but how does one become so excited for something that could very well be awful? Is it just that last year was probably the most dissapointing Rumble match ever?

Enjoy guys. Have fun.
