After they announced that John Cena is a 16 time champion, they said he may lose it in two weeks at The Elimination Chamber.  

They showed Seth Rollins invading Takeover (which was really cool in case you missed it).  We were told Stephanie McMahon will get to the bottom of the issue tomorrow.  I hope it’s quick.  Seriously.

They are plugging The Royal Rumble so that is up next.

We are going to have two minute intervals.  Jerry Lawler came out to a big pop.  The Rumble will go at least an hour.  Oh wait, it will be much longer than an hour.  Enzo and Cass are out first and they are talking.  Cass will enter one and as Enzo says, he is like HBK in his prime.  Cass said he will be the last man standing and will be the man at WrestleMania.  Everyone else is SAWFT.  And number two, which is the same as number one?  Chris Jericho.

Number three is Kalisto.

Number four is Mojo Rawley.

Number five is Jack Gallagher.

The first real fun spot was Gallagher using the umbrella for a nut shot.

Number six is Mark Henry.

No one has been eliminated yet.  Gallagher tried to headbutt Henry and it didn’t work.  Henry came in and started cleaning house.  He then cleaned house and dd a hook em horns.  Gallagher came off the top with the umbrella and Henry caught him and eliminated him.

Number 7 is Braun Strowman.  We know who is next.  Mojo went right after Braun and out Rawley.  Cass went after Braun and he went out next when he missed a boot.  Kalisto went over him and Braun threw him on Rawley and Cass.  Braun faced off with Henry when Apple TV cut out.  When it came back it was Sami Zayn and Braun.  Not sure if Jericho is still in or not.

Number 9 is The Big Show.

Jericho is on the floor at ringside.  I think he is still in.  Show faces off with Braun.  Then they threw hands.  Braun took Show down with a clothesline.  Jericho and Zayn are still in for sure.  Braun went for the elimination but Show caught him and chokeslam him.  Jericho came in and got laid out by Show.  Braun eliminated Show for his fifth elimination.  Braun is getting a big push.

At number ten?  From NXT the PERFECT 10, Tye Dillinger!

Tye came in and worked with Sami to work over Strowman.  They tried to suplex him but he did them instead.

Number 11 is James Ellsworth.  He didn’t want to get in.  Carmella told him to.  Sami and Tye snuck up on Braun and tried to dump him.  It didn’t work.  

Number 12 was Dean Ambrose.  Ellsworth wanted Dean to help him go in there with him.  Dean faked him out and said he would, and Ellsworth got dumped out by Braun.  Number 6.  Dean then went in.

Lapsed fan Neil is here and he wants the frickin world to know that the two minute time limit is not exactly two minutes.

Number 13 is Baron Corbin.  Braun wants him.  When he came in Dean, Tye, Sami and Corbin went to work on Braun.  That led to Tye being elimination number 7.  The other guys, sans Jericho, weren’t in it.

Sami hit a Helluva kick on Braun and Corbin eliminated him with a clothesline.  Braun is out.

Kofi is out at number 14.

The Miz comes out next at 15.

At number 16 is Sheamus.

Joe Inkpen is at the show and just sent this: “The LED video walls above the ring keep going out. That's the reason for the boos and fix the screen chants.”

At number 17 is Big E.

By the way, Jericho is hiding because hasn’t been seen in a long time and the announcers haven’t mentioned him.

Number 18 is Rusev.  He went nuts when he got it.  It could be time to clean some people out of the ring. He is wearing a mask over his broken nose.

Number 19 is Cesaro.

There is too much to recap.  Kudos to Mike Johnson.

Number 20 is Xavier Woods.  All three members are in the match now.

The ring is really full.  

At number 21 is Bray Wyatt.

Jericho is still out on the floor.  If this the refs were supposed to be good, they would get him in.  If the announcers were supposed to be pros, they would realize he is hiding.

Number 22 is Apollo Crews.

In one swoop, Cesaro and Sheamus took out all three New Day.  As Cesaro and Sheamus worked on each other, Jericho came back in and dumped them both out.  Cesaro and Sheamus argued on the floor.  Five guys gone.

Number 23 is Randy Orton.

Orton came in and hit RKOs on everyone.  Gotta make Mania something the lapsed fans understand!

Number 24 is Dolph Ziggler.

Number 25 is Luke Harper.

Harper eliminated Crews and then faced off with Orton but Bray stopped it.  So Harper took out Bray with a lariat and went to work on Orton.  He’s out of the family!  Harper went for Sister Abigail on Bray but Orton stopepd it with an RKO.

Time to clear the ring.  At 26 here comes the PAIN!  Brock Lesnar with Paul Heyman.

Lesnar immediately eliminated Ziggler and Ambrose.  He then hit German Suplexes and F-5s.  He is the only one standing right now.

At 27, here comes Enzo.  Everyone is still down in the ring as Enzo comes out.  Brock called him in.  He came in.  And got killed with a clothesline from hell.  And out he goes.  

The crowd wants Goldberg at number 28.  And they got him.  The ring is still filled with guys selling for Brock, and Brock.  Out comes Goldberg.   They faced off and Goldberg hit the Spear right away.  As Brock got up, he ate the clothesline and got eliminated.

Goldberg took over the role of beating on everyone else left in the ring until Randy and Bray went after him.  But, Goldberg hit a double spear on them.  He is the only one standing up waiting for number 29 and it’s THE UNDERTAKER!

The lights went off and almost immediately came back on and Taker was there.  Taker eliminated Corbin.  Goldberg eliminated Rusev and Harper.  Taker then interviewed Goldberg.

At 30, Roman Reigns!

Reigns faced off with Taker.  Taker punched him and it was on.  They went after each other while everyone else was down.  Taker hit a chokeslam.  Pizza came so I missed who eliminated Sami Zayn (Taker I think).  Roman Reigns eliminates Taker in a sign of things to come.  Reigns stares down the remaining entrants.  Reigns eliminates Jericho who had been laying low with the Superman punch.  The Wyatt family gang up on Reigns.   Roman threw out Bray so it’s down to Orton and Reigns and once again, the boobirds can be happy.  

Randy Orton now is in the WWE Title match at WrestleMania.  Those once a year fans will know at least one of the guys in the WWE Title match.  Lots of talk that Bray Wyatt will win the Chamber match.  If that doesn’t happen, the once a year fans will surely be well acquainted with John Cena vs. Randy Orton for the WWE Title.

Overall, it was a really good show and the Rumble was really good as well.  Thanks for reading!
