The Royal Rumble has been my favorite Pay-Per-View since I was a little kid. It’s easily the most fun event of the year, and I always get a kick out of the surprises and unpredictability that comes with throwing thirty pro wrestlers in the same ring at the same time. The rest of the card for this year’s event doesn’t really thrill me, but I will always love the Rumble match. So without further ado, let’s break it on down…

But it is the biggest pro wrestling event of the year, so without further ado, let’s break it down.
