    Drew Carey is about as unfunny as can be, but he was enjoyable here in his one WWE appearance. From Tiger Ali Singh referring to him as Drew Curry, to him trying to pay Kane off, it was a great performance from the overweight "comedian."



    The ladder match between Chris Jericho and Chris Benoit was an instant classic. Benoit will be remembered for two things: his murder suicide and his technical wrestling ability, but he proved here tonight that he could master any style.



    And while Stone Cold winning the Rumble was a bit of a letdown, this was still a fine battle royal to close out the show.moreless
