Royal Rumble Match
Natalya vs. Becky Lynch vs. Asuka vs. Candice LaRae vs. Naomi vs. Bayley vs. Michin vs. Alba Fyre vs. Zelina Vega vs. Kairi Sane vs. Piper Niven vs. Valhalla vs. Jordynne Grace vs. Nia Jax vs. Tegan Nox vs. Zoey Stark vs. Chelsea Green vs. Shayna Baszler vs. Liv Morgan vs. Shotzi vs. Bianca Belair vs. Xia Li vs. Indi Hartwell vs. Katana Chance vs. Kayden Carter vs. Roxanne Perez vs. Ivy Nile vs. Jade Cargill vs. Tiffany Stratton vs. Maxxine Dupri

This was just fine honestly. The first 2/3rds were super slow mostly. Jordyn Grace was awesome and felt like a huge star that commentary really put over. Lynch was sort of just here, Liv doesn’t feel like the major player we wish she was, Naomi was fun, and Cargill looked like a star that still needs a lot of work. Bayley winning here is just a safe bet. 

2.5 / 5

WWE Universal Title / WWE Title Fatal Four Way Match
Roman Reigns (w/Paul Heyman) (c) vs. AJ Styles vs. Randy Orton vs. LA Knight

This was a fun action packed match that you already knew how it would end. It worked for the most part though and the big spots and everyone getting their time in worked here. 

3.25 / 5

WWE United States Title Match
Logan Paul (c) vs. Kevin Owens

The odd ending here worked to save both guys from taking a pin and kept Logan looking good. This was another match that was just good but thats it. The interference part though was awful. 

3 / 5

Royal Rumble Match
Shinsuke Nakamura vs. CM Punk vs. R-Truth vs. Carlito vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Sami Zayn vs. The Miz vs. Finn Balor vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Ricochet vs. Ivar vs. JD McDonagh vs. Andrade vs. Ludwig Kaiser vs. Santos Escobar vs. Jey Uso vs. Jimmy Uso vs. Pat McAfee vs. Bronson Reed vs. Carmelo Hayes vs. Karrion Kross vs. Damian Priest vs. Gunther vs. Austin Theory vs. Grayson Waller vs. Omos vs. Dominik Mysterio vs. Bron Breakker

Another just mediocre rumble. Bron was great and Dominik gets crazy heat still. Punk seemingly got hurt. Cody winning is fine but almost unneeded. No fun surprises here either was a bad choice.
