This one always confused me. Why was the title match on last? In any other ppv, I'd agree with the title being up for grabs in the main event, but not at the Rumble! The Royal Rumble should be the Main Event at a ppv called, yes.........The Royal Rumble. It's only logical.

 

As far as the Rumble match itself goes, I thought it was ok(ish). The ending was pretty poor, Shawn superkicks Diesel, and he falls over the top rope very slowly.

 

Diesels confrontation with the Undertaker in the aisle, was more interesting.

 

Nothing spectacular, but Bret vs the Undertaker gets my vote.

the rumble match...there was lots of interesting stuff happening in this one...vader's debut, lawler's antics, michaels eliminating vader and yoko at the same time, the hbk/diesel story and the return of jake roberts to a HUGE pop

Duke Droese was great, he even had a fued with HHH. Could you imagine that now? :D
