Hello Everyone, Welcome to my Wrestling Column. Make sure you follow my personal blog wrestlingvibes.com Enjoy the review.

•Royal Rumble Pre-Show Matches

1st Match of The Pre-Show. 6 Women Tag Team Match. Nikki Bella, Naomi and Becky Lynch vs Natayla, Mickie James and Alexa Bliss. Winners-Team Nikki Bella. Overall this match to me was decent. The faces winning this match honestly made sense if you really think about it.

2nd Match of The Pre-Show. RAW Tag Team Championships. Cesaro & Sheamus vs Gallows & Anderson. Winners-Gallows & Anderson. This may h wasn't that exciting what so ever.

3rd Match of The Pre-Show. Sasha Banks vs Nia Jax. Winner-Nia Jax. Nothing really impressive here quite frankly. Nia Jax winning was absolutely the correct decision. But like I tweeted out earlier today, seeing Sasha consistently loosing on PPV really sucks like no joke.

Time for The 2017 Royal Rumble Match Card.

1st Match of The Night. RAW Women's Championship Match. The (C) Charlotte vs Bayley. Winner-Charlotte. To me this match wasn't that bad but to me the story building up to it wasn't that good. Also the fact we saw this match multiple times on Raw kind of dryed out the excitement for me. Charlotte won once again and she most likely unless something happens, she will be heading towards WrestleMania 33 as The RAW Women's Champion.

2nd Match of The Night. Universal Championship Match. (C) Kevin Owens vs Roman Reigns. Chris Jericho was in the shark cage throughout the entire match. Winner-Kevin Owens wins via Brawn Stroman. So this match before Stroman came out, the match between Owens and Reigns was actually a good match not gonna lie. I really enjoyed it, but once Brawn came out you knew honestly that Reigns was gonna loose which he obviously does. I have no clue we're WWE is going when regards to Roman Reigns and his opponent at WrestleMania 33. It was hinted that Stroman was gonna be his opponent but after tonight that I'll get to, Reigns might have found a new opponent for WrestleMania 33.

3rd Match of The Night. Cruiserweight Championship Match. The (C) Rich Swan vs Neville. Winner-Neville. He is The New Cruiserweight Champion, to me I was very excited and happy for Neville because he calls himself "The King Of The Cruiserweight's" then he had to back up that claim which he did by capuering The Cruiserweight Title.

4th Match of The Night. WWE Championship Title Match. The (C) AJ Styles vs John Cena. Winner-John Cena. He's now a 16x World Champion and ties "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair for the most championships won in WWE. I can't tell you how thrilled I was with what both Styles and Cena did in this match. Cena proved something tonight that he can hang with the legit great wrestlers. Styles once again showed us all why he's called "The Phenomenal One." I can't believe WWE pulled the trigger and actually had Cena the belt tonight. I knew as soon as Reigns lost I knew Cena was gonna win his match against Styles in which he did.

5th Match of The Night. The 2017 Royal Rumble. Winner-"The Viper" Randy Orton. He is the winner of The Royal Rumble. He's won before which was in The 2009 Royal Rumble were he faced off against Triple H at WrestleMania 25. Now before I talk about Orton, I just wanna say that Reigns losing his match against Kevin Owens but then we see him in The Royal Rumble. But even better he was drawn at No.30, he was apart of the final three along with Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton. My pick was Bray Wyatt to win The 2017 Royal Rumble whiich I was very close to have happening but he got eliminated via Reigns and Reigns got eliminated by Orton. Now seeing The Undertaker, GoldBerg and Brock Lesnar was cool but Lesnar got eliminated by GoldBerg so quickly. Then immediately following that The Undertaker eliminated GoldBerg and just a few moments later we actually saw Roman Reigns eliminate The Undertaker and you can see Taker's eyes light up he was heated. You saw Reigns give a death stare towards The Undertaker, so I'm not sure if there gonna do Stroman vs Reigns or Taker vs Reigns. But I see either Taker or Stroman being Reigns's opponent at WrestleMania 33. But it was rumored thus entire day and throughout the week/weekend that Randy Orton was slated to win The Royal Rumble. So I'm surprised a rumor prediction winner actually won the match. Now my final thoughts on the entire Royal Rumble Card is this, the match of the night was Cena vs Styles easy. Owens vs Reigns and Swan vs Neville was great as well I'm not gonna sugar coat you all. But that entire Royal Rumble Match from top to bottom wasn't exciting what so ever in my personal opinion. I'm not mad that Orton won The Royal Rumble, I'm simply whatever about it. That's all I got you guys. I hope you all enjoyed my 2017 Royal Rumble Review/Results. Underwhelming night when regards to They Rumble Match. Goodnight everyone. #NoDQ #WWE #RoyalRumble
