Wow, what a match. Personally, I have three stand out moments that I’ll go into, but this rumble was brilliant. Well worth a watch even 8 years on.

First off is obviously CM Punk and his sermon on the mount like speech at the beginning of the show. This was brilliant and I honestly can’t fault it. he eliminated the first two n the match and started talking, then the next person in the match and finished what he was saying. Brilliant from the straight edge superstar. Good heel moment with the hit on Zach Ryder and a valiant fight before elimination. nothing more to ask from Punk, just a really good showing from him.

Shawn Michaels. After a large period where not a lot was happening and no one was being eliminated, out came Shawn to thin the herd, and boy did he, four quick eliminations, and a good elimination on Triple H later on in the match that played well for his character. Also, after he was eliminated from the rumble by Batista the emotional response kicking the ref upon realising he won’t get his match with The Undertaker now was good and adds some humanity to the world of professional wrestling.

The final part of this, as expected, is the return of Edge. As was said on commentary he was supposed to be gone for 14 months and came back in 8. The comeback story and knocking off the face of the company John Cena to win it on top of this makes it one of the most special moments for a rumble ad probably for him personally as well. A good moment from WWE

All in all, a good rumble from start to finish.
