Royal Rumble Sunday 2018 Thoughts and Fire Pro Wrestling World Highlights!

Tonight was the latest edition of the WWE's annual Royal Rumble event, and overall I thought it was a fine event, if a bit long when you factor in the pre-show which had several matches on it. Needless to say though, after the garbage that was RAW's 25th Anniversary and the 'okay' nature of last night's NXT Takeover, the WWE almost had to put forth a great effort. If there was one thing wrong with the night was the stupidity of the Handicap Match for the WWE Championship, which took way to long to really get started.That said, my favorite moments of the night was  Corbin laying out Balor, Rusev and Slater to set up Elias doing his guitar playing and singing bit along with a running gag of Slater being laid out by everyone up to Sheamus who Slater eliminated.. There were plenty of surprises in both Rumbles, amazing how normal Rey Mysterio looks when NOT ON STEROIDS, The Hurricane is more out shape than I am, and it was great to see numerous former Women stars in the Women's Rumble like Molly, Trish and Beth Phoenix. At least Ronda Rousey wasn't in the Rumble, but clearly she will be involved at WrestleMania in a huge way which is fine.

Of course even with the Royal Rumble, that didn't interfere with my nightly twitch broadcast, as tonight's stream was fairly short, but featured some in-ring action from Fire Pro Wrestling World.
