DVD Review: Royal Rumble 2012

DVD Review: WWE Royal Rumble 2012 By Phil Allely Can it really be 25 years since the WWE first began running its Royal Rumble events? The answer is yes indeed and to prove it here we have the 25th anniversary event in its entirety on DVD. The Rumble is always a fun event to watch, we all have our own predictions about who may win the main event and who we'd like to see take the prize of a world title spot at WrestleMania. This year the event offered up a nice mix of headline names, mid-carders and due to the shortage of big name veterans we were treated to a few past stars and some surprises too. Apart from the 30 man main event (a over the top rope battle royal) we also saw Daniel Bryan face Mark Henry and The Big Show in a steel cage for the World Heavyweight Championship, an 8 Diva tag match featuring Kelly Kelly, Eve Torres, Alicia Fox & Tamina taking on Beth Phoenix, Natalya and the Bella twins. John Cena and Kane had a hard-fought encounter and Brodus Clay faced angry Scot Drew McIntyre. The WWE Championship match between Dolph Ziggler and CM Punk (with special ref John Laurinaitis) was a well worked one too. The Rumble as it should be was the highlight here and as such it works well, there is drama, shocks, surprise entrants and much more. Irish fans especially have more reason than most to grab a hold of this release, the Ruble winner and they have an awful lot in common. On the extras front we have an interview with Daniel Bryan and the winner of the Royal Rumble match. This DVD is available now from and all good retailers.
