The non Rumble matches were kinda meh. The Rumbles were both very very good. 

The RAW tag match would have been good on RAW. But it was in a death spot after the men's match where 3/4 of the arena left for food or to piss

Really really fun women's Royal Rumble. I liked it more than the men's Rumble.

And Rousey now holds the title of lamest point at the sign pose. Wish she was in the match instead.

Those were both really good Rumbles. Way better than the last few.

Trish was the right call to mute the boos for not being Rousey. And not having her wrestle was the right call, didn't need to have her or Asuka lose.

Nak is a solid call, should've been Balor.

I loved both Rumbles.  Nakamura and Asuka are awesome to have as the winners and it was a good mix of action and comedy and surprises. 

Holy shit Rey Mysterio looked AWESOME!

Two of the best Royal Rumble matches in a while. Great surprises in both. Rey Mysterio the biggie.

The men's Rumble was the best in at least a decade.  

I'd actually argue the women's was better than most of the men's Rumble in the past decade too.  I thought for sure it was going to be a disaster but it was paced VERY well aside from a pretty dull first ten minutes or so.

And Stephanie McMahon was so awful on commentary, I actually felt sorry for her.

All four of the women in the ring at the end was awkward. And Dunn did the same thing they did with AJs debut.

Asuka not taking the shake ruled. 

Old guard vs new guard in the men’s rumble ruled.

BTW Adam Cole is over huge. That crowd was fucking lit for him. I loved it.

Rey looked like he dropped a ton of weight and was almost WCW sized again

I almost got everything I wanted in terms of Rumble stuff. Can't believe I live in a world where two of the baddest people in the company are Japanese. Dream come true. Even Kairi Sane was over.

The only thing I wanted out of the women's rumble that I didn't get was Mickie eliminating Michelle McCool. That would have been the best.

I had a laugh at McCool getting some premium 2010 booking and clearing the ring

They might fuck up the entire Rousey WWE thing and she may suck in the ring but if she is coming out Joan Jett's Bad Reputation I will fucking allow it.   :D

I guess business has picked up. 

Honestly, I thought if Ronda was showing up tonight, she was winning the thing, but I'm fine with this.

We now have our Rumble main event. Charlotte vs. Ronda Rousey.

Both Rumbles were great.

Steph's commentary was particularly bad, but was surprised she mentioned Chyna.

Also when I saw Molly Holly:
