Tazz vs Kurt Angle….Tazz’s WWF debut, Angle’s 1st loss, all at MSG. That’s what this is remembered for. I remember being happy for Tazz. But as his career slowly went down from here (Jr says this is due to his health), made me wish he got signed earlier. 2007 RR….Taker vs HBK was the highlight of this, a replay of their 1997-1998 matches and foreshadowing of what was to come to years later in 2009/3 years after in 2010 at WM25 and WM26, respectively. RAW Royal Rumble….another rare one 🙂 Rock vs Punk….considering the talents, the match was what anyone… Read more »

I always hated the strap being put on Rocky.. but more so, the way it happend: Been run over on the mic by Mr(s). FruityPebbles with Ladyparts over the span of a year.. Below mediocre “Once in a Lifetime” match.. Storm in at RAW 1000 and declare himself the no. 1 contender for the WWE championship…at the RR 6 months away.. I take Brock anyday over the Once Great One in this: “I have to promote my Twitter account and Fast and Furious 55 movie and stay relevant and only put over the Fruity Peeble dude for lots of Dollars… Read more »

Making fun of Rock the way you did is ridiculous. Those 2 Manias against Cena were the 2 most successful wrestling events of all time. All time. Think about that for a second. Pro wrestling goes back to the 1800s and they broke the record not once, but twice. As for trying to stay relevant, that’s laughable. Rock doesn’t need WWE to stay relevant. He’s the highest paid actor in Hollywood right now. WWE are the ones that need him. Vince should get down on his knees and thank God every time Rock shows up. Wrestling fans live in a… Read more »

Rock being the highest paid actor just tells what low standard Hollywood has become.

Biggest events and alledgly most profitable business does not always equals best entertainment…Wrestlemanias the past 5-7 years are for me the best examples for that.

1 question please regarding the first Royal Rumble content reveal list which includes the 2001 Rumble in it’s entirety…
Is this first content all based on being the ‘Blu-Ray Extra Features’ content seeing as though they are going in year order for the next 2-3 content reveal lists (given yesterday & the day before)?

It is absolutely sad how people are not over Benoit. His oldest son David can’t even wrestle. It’s pathetic. You really don’t know what happened that night. He could’ve been under duress when he made that call to Chavo trying to tell him he was in danger. We assume he killed his family, but murders go unsolved every day. Even more murders are filed of to the easiest conclusion, do any of you understand that if someone was enough of a psychopath that he could’ve held Benoit and his entire family at gun point. Or maybe there was 2 men.… Read more »

No one should never “get over” such a horrible act, excecuted by the private person Chris Benoit.. NOT the wrestler and performer Chris Benoit!

He killed them, it’s pretty definitive. There are still fibres left even if gloves are used. The murders took place over three days, which can be proven with science so why would these hypothetical two men wait that long between each murder? Staying there for three days would obviously leave some kind of evidence. The stories about how caring and loving Benoit was were exaggerated on his tribute show as for the first three quarters of the show they were unaware of the circumstances surrounding the murders/suicide and people tend to romanticize the dead, especially just after the death.

I really wish there was a complete recording that is not shitty Fan Cam footage of the 1994 MSG Rumble that Owen Hart wins. I know I’ll never see it, but I can dream.

It amazes me just by reading the comments how after almost a decade now, people still don’t & never will get it. Outside of an anthology set (which this isn’t) WWE will never put out a match where Benoit is the focus. They still don’t acknowledge his name every single year they do that “By The Numbers” video when they mention who started out #1 & won it besides HBK. The 2004 Rumble won’t be on here nor will any of the other matches he had at the Rumble & they will mute the commentary (see Elimination Chamber) or edit… Read more »

Yeah, its quite obvious WWE will not include Benoit matches that isn’t an Anthology DVD release but seems like people here just don’t get it and still think they would include them just because he is on the Network. For one, on the Network there are milestones you can jump to and Benoit’s name is mentioned no where, his matches and commentary are in tact but he is not advertised anywhere. This is no different. Its almost 10 years but still doesn’t change the fact he is a murderer and that alone washes out all his wrestling accomplishments, which don’t… Read more »

It’s not impossible for them to add him in the future. I know it’s not exactly the same but in the new “100 greatest matches” book WWE have just release there is a one on one singles match where Benoit is the main focus(Jericho vs. Benoit from Royal Rumble) when they could have easily chosen another match if they wanted.

Barry
Guest

Benoit is in the 2007 Royal Rumble Match. Guess you forgot about that. Nobody will remember Benoit for his matches except the hardcore geeks? Well, if you’re gonna go that route, the same could be said for Scott Hall, Jimmy Snuka or even Verne Gagne. How can Benoit admit what he did when his brain was completely scrambled from years of untreated concussions and not given the time off he needed? That’s because the WWE didn’t care about the health and safety of their performers at the time and continued to force them to push their bodies to the limit… Read more »

He wasn’t the featured star though, there’s a difference between him being in the match and a match like the 2004 Rumble where he is the main focus. WWE wasn’t at fault, Benoit was know to be quite a shi**y person before he died so it wasn’t as out of nowhere as people like to think. But if it was damage from all his head injuries that’s not on WWE either. Concussions weren’t as understood back then and also they never forced Benoit to take all the head damage that he did, he would do his flying head-butt every night… Read more »

you’re an idiot. he was the one the most respected and technically gifted wrestlers on the planet.

Barry

dunno where u get your information from but Benoit prior to his death was one of the most respected and best technical wrestlers in the world and you’re just in denial. benoit’s death was a huge loss to wwe and they knew they screwed up on their part by not giving him the required time off an athlete needs which is why they changed their programming to a more family friendly program, increased their drug testing and concussion tests.

featured star or not, it’s chris benoit, the guy wwe doesn’t like to mention or show on their dvds.

Thank you another valid point, in consideration and alternative to my theory of what could’ve happened to Benoit and his family.

Yes..Benoit was in 2007 Rumble, but so were 29 other guys and Benoit wasn’t the focus in that match at all lasting about 15 minutes or so. Don’t expect Benoit vs. Jericho, Benoit vs. Angle and the 2004 Rumble or any other Benoit heavy match on WWE DVD release. Benoit chose to do headbutts and unprotected chair shots for years and his brain turned into mush because of his choices…but of course internet wrestling fans need to defend the murderer just because he does great german suplexes and submission holds. Scott Hall was acquitted from murder charges labeled as self… Read more »

Benoit’s brain turned into mush therefore it’s not his fault at all that he did what he did in his final days. He did all the risky things performers do in pro-wrestling to satisfy the fans and keep them entertained. Even YOU, yes YOU. It’s pretty funny how ignorant and in denial people can be given that the facts are out there to prove that what he did was beyond his control. It’s fan like you that continue to suck up to the WWE and agree with them even though the company is partially responsible for not giving him the… Read more »

I don’t really like much of the new content given for ‘The true story of royal rumble’ today… Tazz vs. Kurt Angle – looks boring 2007 Rumble match – Undertaker win which I guess is important to include n since it has Chris Benoit in it, I rekon they should be able to have the Benoit 2004 rumble win on this set too! — RAW Royal Rumble RAW • January 31, 2011 – Which RAW Rumble was this? As the 2011 Royal Rumble PPV itself was on January 30 (one day before-what did they give the next day after)? CM… Read more »

Let me see if I can put this as straight forward as possible: The 2004 WWE Royal Rumble winner was at the time NOT a murderer.

But in 2016 he is so I don’t want to see him

Okay, I’m starting to agree with you after re-reading the Benoit murder story. However it is still a Rumble match-up that I’ll never forget & if they can add the ‘2007 Rumble’ that includes ‘Benoit’, then why not be able to add his own Rumble win from 2004 where he enters as the No1 entrant & wins the match-up?!

The same could be said for Ric flair, shawn Michaels or undertaker. So what’s your point, hater?

Ric Flair: 16 time world champion and 2 time Hall of Famer
Shawn Michaels: Multiple time world champion and what many consider to be the greatest performer of all time and consistently had the best matches on every card
Undertaker: Multiple time world champion and what many consider to be the greatest character in wrestling history A match against him at WrestleMania is equally as important as a world title match

Yeah, keep thinking mr. toothless aggression could even sniff any of their jocks. LOSER

Just got word in guys that the 2007 Royal Rumble will be un-edited so you can stop bickering now.

Oh, and Chris Benoit was an awesome wrestler in the ring. One of the finest technical wrestlers of the 21st century. No doubt!

There is doubt. He was terrible

Ric Flair was worse than Benoit. He had the same matches for 35 years.

If WWE really have to keep continue to stroke The Rock’s ego, could they at least have put on his Rumble win instead of that Punk-buried champ-match.

2007 Rumble is a nice pick.. I still hope for the entire 2008 event as a Blu-ray exclusive, but since that is close to 2 hours and 50 minutes, I guess I can kiss that goodbye seeing the list of content so far. Still.. can’t wait for complete reveal. 🙂

I am taking a hunch that the Story of the Royal Rumble documentary won’t be too long. Especially if they want to fill 3 DVDs full of action, and a Rumble match itself can go around the 60 minute mark, give or take a bit. Plus the Blu Ray of it will definitely help add on at least 90 minutes of extras, so that right there could be another Rumble match.
