    I think there's a shot for that. There aren't a lot of women that could be in the Rumble that would be surprises. She's at the top of the list of those that could.

    Crappy ending. Really waste to have Nia Jax to come in and eliminate one person plus have men put their hands on a women when you won't let that happen in any other match. Decent show.

    I hated the Nia part when it happened, but I got a pretty good chuckle out of it when Orton RKO'd her.

    Overall I give the show a B-. I thought Lesnar/Balor was the match of the night, followed closely by Asuka/Becky.

    I thought Nia Jax knocking out Truth and entering the rumble was amazing.

    In matches that long, with that many people, you have to have some interesting twists. Since we all know the outcome is predetermined why wouldn't the WWE do some interesting things.

    Plus, think of all the interesting talking points Nia has stored up now, like it taking several moves from male wrestlers, including a RKO, to finally knock her out. Again, I loved Nia showing everyone just how strong she is.

    I liked Lesnar and Balor too and I am glad Lesnar wiped him out at the end because the start of the match was unrealistic.

    I was sitting on the coach thinking about Erick Rowan and then bam, it looks like he is going to be a new Daniel Bryan disciple, love it!

    I thought the Rhonda/Sasha match was good. Those two look like they could have some great chemistry with more experience. Again, too bad the WWE trust Rhonda to the top instead of taking their time like they have been doing with Braun.

    On a side note, that is the best performance I have seen from the Iconics to date.

    And I don't get to stress this enough, but I love Corey Graves on commentary, no one comes close, ever. I also love when Graves dotes over Mandy Rose, Renee Young called Graves a pervert on the broadcast and I laughed out loud for 10 seconds.

    All things considered I thought the Royal Rumble was pretty good, I will give it a B+.

    I thought the execution of the night was great.

    I hate that for the vast majority of PPVs , and this one was no different, fans can pick the outcome before the event takes place. Every match turned out exactly like I anticipated which sucks.

    Loved seeing Kacy Catnazaro as an entrant to the women's rumble. She was awesome on American Ninja Warrior and I'm hopeful she can have a solid career with the WWE.

    Was hoping Mandy Rose would win it, but glad they didn't allow Charlotte Flair, who I can't stand, win.

    Little disappointed there weren't any major shocker (outside of Jeff Jarrett, big whoop) in the men's Rumble.

    I know most of us dislike Brock having the Universal Championship, but when he is locked in, he sells like no one else. He sold that mid-section injury like gold.

    I agree that it was very predictable, but especially with regard to Rumble matches, they usually are. As long as they keep the Wrestlemania stipulation, they will continue to be that way.

    I wish they would keep the Championship opportunity as a stipulation, but not Wrestlemania.

    I think part time anything in the WWE stinks.

    Sometimes I think the bigger they become the easier it is to predict the results.

    WWE should bring Big Show back and make him unstoppable like Andre the Giant.
