  • Royal Rumble 2004 is one of the better ones of the past five years.

    1. World Tag Team Championship-Fans who went to get a beer missed this match. Could've been something special if given time. 2/10

    2. Cruiserweight Championship-Great while it lasted, and much like the previous match, it ended too soon and should've been given at least 10 minutes. 4/10

    3. Eddie/Chavo-Anyone expecting Bret-Owen 2 was let down. I'm not sure how wise it was to make Eddie do what he did after the match. 6/10

    4. WWE Championship-Pretty much what we could expect out of Holly and Brock needs a better opponent. Hollys push has to be over after this. 3/10

    5. World Heavyweight Championship-Not what these two are capable of. Not a bad match but it was missing that special something. 7/10

    6. The Royal Rumble Match-The Rumble is usually good and this was nothing short of great. The performances of Benoit, Big Show, Orton, Cena, Angle, and Jericho are definately worth noticing. Benoit winning was the only way to go. 10/10

    Overall, Royal Rumble 2004 was above average. Some matches weren't given enough time to amount to anything beacause they were saving for the Rumble and World Title matches, but alls well that ends well. This is definately worthy of a couple viewings.moreless
  • overall this payperview was okay. It was quite better than the past few royal rumbles. I dont know what the wwe is doing with the cruiserweights the match should of gone on easiy anoyher 10 minutes, Chirs beniot winning the royal rumble was the right waymoreless

    Cruiserweight Title: This would have been a great match if i didnt go on for 3 minutes. The wwe needs to give cruiserweights more push and stop giving the title to rey.

    Worldheavy weight title: It wasnt as great as michael/hemsley past encounters but it was pretty good but shawn should of won the the title and gone to wrestlemania the champion.

    Wwe championship: Holly put on as good of a math as we could expect from him. Holly needs to get into the united states hunt instead of fueding with top dogs like brock

    Eddie/chavo: It was an okay match it could of easily had more counters but it didnt steal the show like everyone thought it would

    Royalrumble:even though it was predictable it was enjoyable to watch especially foleys return and elimating orton

    Tables match: Long time since we saw a tables match it wasnt as exciting still a passing matchmoreless
