WWE Royal Rumble 2014

The WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view opens with the usual bad ass video package we have all come to expect from the WWE pay-per-view opening. The package shows past Royal Rumble matches, people going on to WrestleMania as a result of winning the Rumble, etc. Cool stuff as usual.

When the video package concludes, we shoot live to the arena where a whole ton of pyro explodes and Michael Cole welcomes us to the 2014 Royal Rumble pay-per-view. He says we’re on the road to WrestleMania with the 27th annual Royal Rumble. From there, Daniel Bryan’s music hits and an enormous pop erupts in Pittsburgh.

Daniel Bryan vs. Bray Wyatt

Bryan “Yes!” marches his way to the ring and the crowd is loud as HELL doing the “Yes!” chant and generally cheering for Bryan. Very, very loud reaction for Daniel Bryan in Pittsburgh. We shoot to the announce table and the guys talk about being excited for tonight. They introduce the Spanish announce team where the Spanish commentary guys, including Ricardo Rodriguez, say stuff in Spanish. The Wyatt Family appears on the titantron, “we’re here.” The crowd boo’s. As Bray makes his way to the ring, some video packages air showing the history of the Wyatt-Bryan feud. Bray blows out the candle while sitting in his rocking chair, accompanied by Erick Rowan and Luke Harper. Wyatt heads to the ring where Bryan is waiting for him. A loud “Daniel Bryan” chant breaks out from literally everyone in the building. Very loud chants.

We see some closeups of Bray staring with his eyes wide open talking to himself as the bell rings. Bray yells “you tried to make a fool outta me!” as the crowd is split between a “Yes! Yes! Yes!” chant and a “Daniel Bryan! Daniel Bryan!” chant. Bray and Bryan lock up and Bray over-powers the smaller man early on. Bray yells “you will receive no mercy from me!” as he punishes Bryan. Bryan tries fighting back briefly, but Bray cuts his attempts short. Bryan dives through the ropes out of nowhere and nails Luke Harper. As Erick Rowan tries to beat up Bryan on the floor, the referee sticks his head through the ropes and he ejects Harper and Rowan from the match. Bray goes out and tells them he doesn’t need them to fight this war for him. Rowan and Harper leave. As soon as Bray turns around, Bryan comes flying off the top and splashes onto Bray on the floor.

The announcers keep mentioning that Bray is grabbing his leg a lot. A loud “Daniel Bryan” chant breaks out as the action returns to the ring. Bryan hits Bray with a ton of “Yes!” kicks. Bryan hops up onto the top rope but Bray chops him so hard that he falls over and crashes out onto the floor. Bray goes out after Bryan on the floor. Bray runs at Bryan but Bryan moves and Bray crashes into the ringside steps. He grabs his leg and screams out in pain as the announcers again sell the fact that Bray’s leg is hurt.

Back in the ring, Bryan is now targeting Bray’s hurt leg with repeated kicks. The announcers put over new WWE Tag-Team Champions The New Age Outlaws by pointing out that “#NewAgeOutlaws” is trending number one overall in the world. Meanwhile, Bryan continues to work on the leg of Bray. Bray nearly suplexes Bryan out to the floor but instead snaps his arm down hard to the apron.

The action is out on the floor now and Bray is stomping Bryan’s head into the ground. The crowd starts up with another loud “Daniel Bryan” chant as Bray throws Bryan back in the ring. Bray launches Bryan half-way across the ring with a suplex-throw sort of move. A “Husky Harris” chant breaks out as Bray continues his attack on Bryan. Bray throws Bryan over the top and onto the floor just as Bryan was trying to fight back. Bray leans Bryan’s head against the ring post and repeatedly smashes it with forearms.

Out on the floor again and Bray runs and splashes onto Bryan. Bray says “I tried to tell ya’ll.” He then yells at the fans, “why didn’t you help him?!” Bray throws Bryan back in the ring. Bray bashes each side of Bryan’s head with forearms before settling into a choke. The crowd tries to rally behind Bryan and get him back into the match. Bray nails Bryan with a big chokeslam type of move. Bray does his crab-walk/amateur wrestling bridge thing. He gets back up and splashes Bryan in the corner. Bray scoops Bryan up and slams him in the center of the ring. Bray tries to splash Bryan but Bryan rolls out of the way.

Both guys get to their feet and Bryan starts fighting back with “Yes!” kicks. Bray misses a splash in the corner and Bryan continues to kick the crap out of Bray. Bryan and Bray go to the top and Bryan hits a huricanrana on Bray for a near fall. A “this is awesome” chant breaks out as Bryan continues to kick Bray. Both guys hit the ropes and Bray smashes into Bryan hard. When they get up, Bray tries running at Bryan again but Bryan pulls the ropes down and Bray goes flying out to the floor. Bryan comes off the apron and catches Bray with a spinning tornado DDT on the floor.

As the fight continues on the floor, Bryan runs at Bray and hits him with a double-foot dropkick. Back in the ring, Bryan comes off the top and hits him with a double-foot dropkick again. The crowd is exploding with “Yes!” chants again as Bryan repeatedly kicks Bray. Bryan runs at Bray and hits him with a big kick in the corner. He does it again. When he goes for it a third time, Bray runs at Bryan and nails him with a wicked clothesline that turns Bryan inside out. Wow.

Bray sets Bryan up for Sister Abigail but Bryan reverses it into a roll-up pin attempt. Bryan slaps Bray in the “Yes! Lock” and sinches up on it hard. Bray starts biting Bryan and eventually bites his way out of it. Bray pounds Bryan on the ground. Bray sits Bryan on the top rope as a light “this is awesome” chant begins to grow. Bryan knocks Bray down to the mat. Bryan climbs all the way to the top rope and comes off with a big splash. Bryan leads the fans in a “Yes!” chant. He goes for the running knee but Bray rolls out to the floor. Bryan runs and dives through the ropes but Bray catches him coming down and hits him with Sister Abigail right into the barricade. Wow.

Bray picks Bryan up and throws him in the ring as a very loud “this is awesome” chant breaks out. Bray hits Bryan with Sister Abigail in the middle of the ring and pins him. 1-2-3. Bray Wyatt wins.

Winner: Bray Wyatt

After The Match

After the match, Erick Rowan and Luke Harper come back out to the ring to celebrate with him. Several replays are shown of some high spots during the match as the Wyatt Family theme music plays in the arena. The replays end and we see Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt Family heading up the ramp as the referee checks on Bryan, who is still laid out in the ring.

Renee Young Interviews Paul Heyman

Backstage, Renee Young is with Paul Heyman. Heyman cuts her off and informs us that his name is Paul Heyman. He apologizes in advance for the uncomfortable scene that is about to take place. Heyman says Lesnar is going to victimize Big Show tonight. Heyman says Lesnar will defeat Big Show and then go on to become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. He calls this the dawning of a new era because the WWE Universe is going to be conquered by Brock Lesnar.

Checking In With The Expert Panel

Ben Rothelisberger is shown sitting front row. We head back to the expert panel. Mathews introduces Ric Flair. Flair “Wooo’s.” He then introduces “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan. Duggan does his “Hooooo!” Mathews introduces Shawn Michaels. The crowd popped for each guy. HBK jokes that he got out-dressed by Jim Duggan. HBK says he feels the future of the WWE is in the hands of Bray Wyatt and Daniel Bryan. Flair talks about Brock Lesnar, calling him the baddest man on the planet. Hacksaw says Big Show has the upper-hand after manhandling Lesnar the past few weeks.

    • sai3i3ath

      • booo

    • Ryan5060

      My Moneys On Cena And Punk

    • Roger Gumpleton

      So funny no one wants to see randy or cena fight

    • Eddie Pierce

      Haha wonder if jerry dropped that Bryan could be winning the royal rumble since he said he is next for them

    • Coraje187

      WOW another joke match. I knew that randy vs. Cena

    • boooo

      Crap matches crap ending beside bryan only good match so far

    • MR. Willingbaker

      Love how they think the crowds trying to distract randy… hahahahah

    • gg

      we want divas..lol

      • P.P. Johnny

        P.P. Johnny says you’ve got to be kidding???? Cena/Orton was enough torture for one evening. Lol

        • Topsy Krettz

          The Cena vs Orton match was so boring the audience started chanting “We Want Divas”

    • Derp

      Super stoked that Shattered Dreams has returned.

    • Andy

      good grief Nash! who decided that crap?

    • Derp

      I love that nobody wants to see Mysterio. He’s dead weight, I give him a couple weeks before he’s injured again.

      And great…Boretista is gonna win the rumble.

      • P.P. Johnny

        P.P. Johnny says thank you for saying Mysterio is dead weight. Tired of his same old crap.

    • Coraje187

      That Rumble sucked.

    • Derp

      Well that was a good rumble until the ending. Why the fuck would the put that no talent assclown Boretista in the main event? NOBODY wants that.

    • Derp

      They’re not booing him because they dislike Boretista’s character. They’re booing him because he sucks and can’t wrestle.

    • i Am GoD

      well that rumble match was very predictable . that byan vs wyatt match was awesome though

    • Eddie Pierce

      Love how wwe can’t take a hint the people want Daniel Bryan…

      • VIPER1995

        I agree bryan does need to be in more matches and be pushed more but the fact that the crowed booed the shit out of Batista just cuz Bryan wasn’t in the rumble was stupid

        • Eddie Pierce

          Yeah. I just don’t think people want Batista as champ. I like Bryan I really do. I mean he’s my favorite since Chris Benoit, but they are just getting tired of the wwe not listening and I believe that’s why they are now booing all matches and chanting Daniel Bryan, yes, no, and boo..

          • Batista 1995

            I have been keeping up on my wwe news and there’s things in the works for bryan an other supstarts everyone wants to see its just gonna take time for the storylines to play out

      • Joseph Parks

        db sucks

      • me

        they know, the storyline he was in with th authority was pretty spot on. they think letting a has been who came back for money win is better than the best worker in wwe who gets the loudest pops. I

    • me

      wwe needs to open their ears holy shit. i hope the huge boos and no chants pissed them all off

      • Eddie Pierce

        I agree. They really are holding Daniel Bryan back and you know he has to be smiling with all this going on.

        • Derp

          Why would Bryan be smiling at the fact that he should be the face of the company when the company he should be the face of is constantly screwing him over because he doesn’t look like a 300 pound wrinkled leather purse?

          • Derp

            yea true dat

    • HeyamNick

      BULLSHIT

    • P.P. Johnny

      P.P. Johnny says Batista vs Orton main event at WM XXX. WTF!!!!!
      Just put me to sleep now.

      • Jayvonte

        It gonna be Brock leaner vs Batista

    • the man

      that show sucked so badly

    • VIPER1995

      The crowd tonight at the rumble COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY SUCKED!!!! Just cuz u didn’t get Bryan you don’t need to boo the shit out of perfectly good matches

      • Derp

        Good matches? What show were you watching? The only good match was Bryan and Wyatt.

        Every match deserved to be booed for terrible booking.

        • ambrose, rollin, reign

          The crowd ruined the royal rumble match, look like they have something plan for bryan and cena against the wyatt.

          • Derp

            The crowd didn’t ruin the match. The bookers ruined the match by having Batista win.

      • Robert

        This was one of the best crowd’s I’ve seen in a while.

    • Atombender

      That Rumble match was quite boring. Too bad Roman didn’t win. Not to happy too see Batista back. Roman should headline WrestleMania.

    • JBL fan

      JBL was probably my favourite part.

    • Gintoki Sama

      Im disappointed Curtis axel *sarcasm* didn’t appear in the Rumble. Triple H and Stephanie will run WWE to the ground.

    • Jason

      Very predictable.

    • Captncharisma

      This was the worst P.P.V. in a long time. The only thing that saved this P.P.V. was Bray and Bryan.

      • Derp

        After further thought, I fully agree. This whole PPV was horribly booked. They should be ashamed of themselves. The fans gave them reason enough to.

    • Batista1995

      I can honestly see y some of the crowed pleasing superstars r turning on this pathetic wwe crowd

    • SMRaja89!

      WWE has managed to, yet again, create a predictable PPV! They could have created a NEW star and have a GREAT storyline with The Shield with a Roman Reigns Rumble victory. They have dropped the ball on a great opportunity to move the company in a more unpredictable, more exciting new direction. Instead its the same thing. Same stars getting put over the other performers simply because the company does not feel that they are deserving enough of that top spot. I would have rather have seen Punk vs. Cena in the Wrestlemania main event with a controversial finish. HOPEFULLY A CENA HEEL TURN… HOPE! HOPE! HOPE! Instead, we are left with, a more than likely, Orton/Batista main event (Triple Hs guys) PREDICTABLE!!!

    • Batista1995

      There’s plans for the shield and other superstars u want to see more of in the works

      • Derp

        The problem is, is they are booking one of the most boring Wrestlemania main events. Orton vs. Batista? It’s happened a million times before. And Boretista has clearly not learned any new moves, so we’re just going to be getting the same ol shit rather than something new and refreshing. I hope Batista gets injured and can’t wrestle Wrestlemania.

        • Batista 1995

          Batista will not be getting injured that’s like saying hope for the undertaker to be injured and not wrestle wrestlemania just simply ain’t happening

          • Derp

            And you’re sure about that? Wrestlers don’t get injured all the time? Rey Mysterio? Hello? He looked like he hurt his legs the first 5 minutes in the match. Mr Gimpy needs to retire, he’s too old, and the steroids have destroyed his raggedy body.

            • Batista 1995

              I know wrestlers get injured all the time what I was saying is wwe won’t let him get injured and fuck up there biggest ppv dumbass

            • Derp

              Right, because you can prevent injuries from happening. Moron.

            • Derp

              Go to bed, you have middle school in the morning.

            • Derp

              Plenty of wrestlers have been injured before wrestlemania and had their matches scrapped before. So again, go to bed little boy.

          • ugh

            and did you see batista fuck up that spear he hit him in the knee

          • Derp

            Also, comparing a legendary wrestler to a 1 move wrinkled steroid purse is not even close to accurate.

    • hank

      wwe creative has no imagination is getting really really boring

    • why

      why why why so much promise for this ppv just to flot so bad i enjoy the people chants more then the match

    • MegaCompactDisk .

      Triple H booked his friends to win. Outlaws get the title? Orton and Batista win? And they get to headline wrestlemania? I can see X-pac winning the IC title on Raw.

      • P.P. Johnny

        P.P. Johnny wonders if all of HHH’s cronies are coming back, then where is Chyna?

        • Broski

          Chyna is in China

    • Batista 1995

      Batista is around to stay for a while so get use to it ppl even if u hate him he’s still gonna be around for at least two years so u can choose for him to be a heel by booing him all the time pr make him a babyface by supporting him or just being quite

    • Canuck 703

      I was thinking of going to watch @ a near by theater but sounds like I didn’t miss much so I’m glad I stayed away. Last time I went most of the people in the theater were people who shouldn’t be out in public without a parent or caretaker (to put it nicely). There were guys crying, Taking bets. storming out of the theater when their favorite wrestler was eliminated. One kid was climbing on the backs of the seats & doing wrestling moves, He ended up falling off the seats & down the isle stairs & they had to turn the lights on to see if he was ok, The manager took him away & I don’t know what happened to him after that but he did leave under his own power so he couldn’t of been to hurt.

    • Patrick Frisby

      forget that audience there should’ve been more wrestlers involved in it such as brock lesnar,and big show etc everybody was booing batista but batista said he was going to win it and he did and everybody was cheering for him on monday night raw but now they are hating sorry there wanna be duck dynasty daniel bryan but he lost to bray wyatt anyway how could he win so all u guys need to stop hating and good job batista u said it and u did it

      • VIPER1995

        Agree!

        • Derp

          He won because that is who the creative writers wanted to win…not because he said he was going to.

          • VIPER1995

            Do u have to comment on everything I post

            • Derp

              Don’t flatter yourself, I pay no attention to you, nor do I give a shit about what you post or where you post.

        • bluebook

          ., <—These things exist for a reason.

    • FightFan

      I can just imagine Vince, Triple H, and Stephanie in the back with their hands over their ears screaming “I am not listening! I am not listening!” to all of the Yes and Daniel Bryan chants.

    • Finchinho

      WHAT A JOKE OF A COMPANY!!! WWE- Consistantly fucking up storylines and ignoring fans for over 10 years…

      • D

        Yet the fans keep coming back. How do they know the fans aren’t happy when they keep tuning in and buying tickets and merchandise every week?

    • FightFan

      Rhodes Brothers vs. New Age Outlaws: Nothing special but decent.

      Bray Wyatt vs. Daniel Bryan: Awesome, but Bryan losing didn’t make much sense.

      Brock Lesnar vs. Big Show: Good for what it was. Chair shots went a bit overkill though.

      John Cena vs. Randy Orton: With the exception of hitting their finishers on each other, boring. This feud has gone beyond being run in the ground.

      Rumble: Good content-wise. Creative-wise, horrible. A waste of two spots that could have been used for Daniel Bryan and either Bray Wyatt or even Curtis Axel. Batista winning was predictable yet extremely unwelcome. Absolutely no one wants to see a continued Orton-Batista feud.

      This Rumble left me with very mixed feelings. Some good matches and a solid rumble, but perhaps the absolute worst booking decisions in recent memory.

    • DBryan

      The Rumble sucked the bryan match was awesome ending of the match sucked the rumble was pritty much the same as last years except for it c omeing down the roman and Batista would have been great to see roman win but ain’t the worst that Batista won that way he can become champ and get his reign as champ done with so someone who deserves to be champ can become champ

    • FightFan

      I believe the loud chant Matt Boone couldn’t quite make out during Cena-Orton was “You both suck!”

    • George Flegel

      WOW, no Daniel Bryan in the Rumble. That was lame. It must have sucked for the guys who were getting booed.

    • Broski

      I agree that Batista should’ve not won the Royal Rumble, but I kinda get it now. Here’s my future prediction…

      Elimination Chamber:

      Brock Lesnar beats Randy Orton to become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion

      Wrestlemania matches:

      Daniel Bryan def. The Undertaker

      Brock Lesnar vs. Batista. I don’t have a prediction here yet.

      What do you think?

      • booo

        undertaker streak should never end but he should stop wrestling

    • Rhey Mark Furog

      Vince is losing his mind right now!!!

      If I would booked this Royal Rumble Match it would be:

      Daniel Bryan comes out at #30

      The Last Three Man should be Reigns, Batista and Daniel Bryan

      Then suddenly Brock Lesnar comes out and eliminate Batista to set
      their feud for Wrestlemania 30 The Animal vs The Beast and because Brock
      and Batista want’s a shot at the belt at mania

      Then Daniel Bryan eliminate Roman Reigns to win the Royal Rumble match and Headline to Wrestlemania 30

      OR

      Another Scenario for my Road to Wrestlemania!

      Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns will be the last two then The Wyatt
      Family Interferes to eliminate Daniel Bryan but they eliminate Reigns
      instead due to miscommunication, now this would set up Wyatt Family vs
      The Shield at Mania due to costing Reigns his Royal Rumble win!

    • Nicholas Williams

      WOW!!! how shocking WWE.

    • Shorya

      this is the worst PPV in the recent time… Plz “THE AUTHORITY” stop using ur head and go ask Daddy Mr. Vince Macmohan for better story line….

    • srivatsan

      good batista very good

    • shreky123

      what a complete joke that ppv was. i have been a big wwe fan for 30 years and that is one of the worst things i have ever seen. for daniel bryan not to be in the rumble which he shud have won is the biggest joke i have ever seen. wwe is supposed to b loyal to the wwe universe. THAT IS BS. Listen to what the fans want.

    • Petra

      Oh there could ba,6B match at EC – Batista, Brock, Bray, Bryan, Big show and Bo from nxt.. Yes i am joking..

    • Joaoruy

      Seriously, the crowd was ruining the whole PPV. I understand that they wanted Daniel Bryan to have a chance and that the WWE was holding him back, but come on! I wanted to see the Rumble even if Daniel Bryan wasn’t gonna show up and the crowd ruined it!
      I do feel sorry for Daniel Bryan, He’s becoming quite popular with the crowd…But people, try to enjoy what’s to be anticipated and watch what you have, instead of calling out superstars in a match that they weren’t part of.
