First match, the Triple Threat cage match was solid. Bryan retained. Mark Henry, I assume because he's somewhat injured, was barely involved. A bit quicker of a match than I thought it should have been.
And now, we get an 8 diva tag match. Waste..of..time.

Cena and Kane went to a predictable double count out...Fight went backstage..Kane beat him up, smacking him with a chair 4 times. Kane brought Ryder out of his dressing room, wheeled him out to the ring and gave him a tombstone. Cena came back out and Kane chokeslammed him.

Enjoyed the Kane/Cena match. It ended in a double count out and then they ended up going to the back, with Kane beating the hell out of Cena. Kane then went and got Ryder and choked him out. He wheeled him out to the ring and gave him a tombstone in front of Eve. Then Cena came running back out and and Kane put him in the ground too.
The double count out kind of sucked, but Kane comes away looking like an absolute monster from all of this.

25 guys in...Only "surprises" are Cole, Road Dogg, Duggan, Booker T, Kharma and Lawler.
No one you really want to see in terms of surprises.

Shaemus wins Rumble...It was between him and Jericho.

OT: for all those mentioning recently they hoped Shane might be coming back sometime soon, I actually just learned tonight that he actually doesn't work for the company anymore, he's CEO for some cable provider based out of COL and he's on the Board of Directors of International Sports Marketing (and agency with some big clients). Found that interesting.
Also...Stephanie IS still with the company and is the person you can blame for all these terrible storylines, she's the EVP of creative and makes almost $700k a year. That's crazy she can work from home and make almost a mil per year.

As for the Rumble, I didn't see it, but reading the report, it appears Dolph vs Punk brought the goods, as expected.
I'm a big Sheamus fan, but that was an unexpected win. I am confused where they go with this? Orton vs Bryan would have been a good Mania title match, but Sheamus vs Bryan just sounds like a one sided squash. The title match at Mania shouldn't be a weasel Bryan vs a dominant Sheamus, it needs to be a back and forth good match. The only other option is to turn Orton heel, have him win the belt at Elimination Chamber, and go Orton vs Sheamus, but I think its too soon to turn Orton, and that would absolutely bury Bryan.
On the other side, I would guess pretty soon Jericho needs to start a program with Punk, but it sounds like he's still getting a face reaction (can anyone who watched the Rumbhle confirm this?) They need to finally have him speak and set up what the "end of the world as we know it" means, and who exactly is his lady friend. I'm still hoping its Steph (I want her ion TV sooooooo bad). I guess we could see Trips fire Johnny and side with Punk, and then Steph comes back to side with Jericho, leading to a SummerSlam feud between Jericho and Trips down the road, while Punk and Dolph steal the summer title spotlight?
As for the "surprises," I think Road Dogg is a great one, and Kharma was a HUGE surprise, and they let her dominate for some time. Khali returning was also unexpected. I would have liked to see Christian, but I guess he wasn't ready to go sailing over the top rope yet. And the Cobra vs Mr. Socko sounds like pure comedy gold!
I also just read that the Money in the Bank PPV has been canceled, so I guess we can expect a MITB Ladder Match at Mania, which is where I think it belongs.
So, anyone have any ideas on where they are going with Sheamus at Mania, and how they get Punk vs Jericho storyline going? Maybe we have Jericho win the World Title at Elimination Chamber, and he wrestles Sheamus at Mania while Punk stays with Dolph????

I thought it was a poor PPV...Wish i hadn't spent the money on it.
I expect something like Barrett vs Shaemus for the title at WM.
