30-Man Royal Rumble Match with John Cena Winning!!!
AR’s Truth: A decent rumble match with no real surprises except godfather who was in there for a second & Goldust who got actually a decent pop. Chris Jericho Returns which was awesome. They had carlito, Shelton Benjamin , Chris Master backstage but none appeared. I think Shelton will re appear on wwe tv in the near future hopefully. As far as the match goes i like the first two guys ( dolp ziggler & Chris Jericho) two work horse who was in there for awhile. It came down to ryback & John Cena with the obvious choice in Cena to win it. After that it was very predictable Rock would win in later that night. Good but not up to expectations rumble match 3-5*

Winner & Still WWE Champion: Cm Punk (C)
AR’s Truth: Wow what a shocker with punk retaining. The shield coming in there & costing the rock was no surprise but the black out was a nice touch.
But The Vince McMahon comes out & says that the rules of the match with the shield. Vince is about to strip the championship but the rock says the night won’t end like this & the match is restarted.
AR’s Truth: Of course Vince would come out to stripe punk of the title & honestly i thought they might end the ppv right there and have an angle on raw the next night but then the rock standed up like a man and wanted the match restarts was a smart move which i liked.

Winner & Finally New WWE Champion: The Rock
AR’s Truth: Ok thats the end of this match & what a up & down match for the fans to watch. I like that the shield helped punk win & it was opened event more that punk is of course working with the shield but im ready to have punk admit it already. As far as the rock coming back to win it after the shock factor was over and the match pt 2 was on it was clear the rock would win & did it style. Im a mark for the rock and glad he is champion. How this will affect the wwe house show business will be interesting and will the rock defend his title at the Elimination chamber ppv is unclear at this time but it would only make sense he would & im hopeful he will. Not a great match but Pretty close to it. Im gonna go with a good match with 3.5-5 * Rating.
AR’s Final Truth: A good ppv by wwe with a weird order of match listings with wwe title ending it but other than that i really don’t have to much complaints. For more of my opinion check out the youtube review show.
Overall PPV Rating: 7.5-10*
