Sheamus Wins the 2012 Royal Rumble



Well… To be completely honest there’s not all that much to talk about for this one. Not too much really happened, nothing much in the way of returns, and not all that much to get excited about for The Miz either as they never really capitalised on him being in the match for as long as he was.

Overall the match itself I’d have to say was slightly disappointing for the most part and the ring was overrun for a lot of it and so the eye was generally not sure of where to look from on point or another.

The announcers part was enjoyable and it is worth a watch for that around the midpoint of the match, and Michale Cole’s commentary on it is good as well.

The final part of the match was good, the culmination of it all with Sheamus, Randy, The Big Show and Chris Jericho worked well at the end, and the back and forth segment with Chris and Sheamus is very good on top of this.

Overall, the match was okay, nothing special but okay, and worth a watch if you’re interested. If you’re introducing people to the match, there are better ones to pick.
