Fill Up With Phillip: Volume 5


That’s right folks. Tonight the Royal Rumble comes to you LIVE from the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia. The Rumble is always my favorite pay per view, mainly because I love the actual Royal Rumble match.

Let’s go through the matches, and I will tell you who I think will win the matches.

Cruiserweight Championship
Jamie Noble vs. Rey Mysterio
This match should actually be very interesting. These are two cruiserweights, yet there wrestling styles are completely opposite. Mysterio is the high flyer, while Noble likes to use his strength to his advantage in matches. This match should be really good if they are given enough time to develop it. A storyline here is that Mysterio has been coming to the aid of Noble’s girlfriend Nidia, but Noble keeps attacking him. I’m feeling Nidia turning on Noble and helping Mysterio win.
WINNER: Rey Mysterio

Tag Team Championship
The Dudley Boyz vs. Ric Flair and Batista
These two teams have no chemistry in the ring together, at all. HOWEVER, a lot of people are down on Batista. I think, that when he tags with Ric Flair, he shows a lot of confidence in what he is doing in the ring. That’s why the WWE keeps Ric Flair in the ring. He is without a doubt THE BEST WRESTLER OF ALL TIME. The man is in his 60’s and puts on better matches than almost anyone else. The fans are always into it when Ric is out there. He is the best heel every in the history of wrestling… but enough with a Ric Flair appreciation post. This is a table’s match and the Dudleys haven’t been Champions for a while, so I think that trend will continue until Wrestlemania.
WINNER: The Dudley Boyz

Chavo Guerrero vs. Eddie Guerrero
This match will still the whole fucking show! You have the two best pound for pound wrestlers on Smackdown! (Maybe with the exception of Chris Benoit). I believe if they are given at least 20 minutes, this match will be the best match of the night. The edge here has to go to Eddie though. His star has been shining bright, and he is who the people want. This will boost Eddie up, and a good match will push Chavo up as well.
WINNER: Eddie Guerrero

WWE Championship
Brock Lesnar vs. Hardcore Holly
Why ….. In the hell…………. Does Hardcore Holly have a title shot. I hope Brock Lesnar ends this quickly, or it will be ugly.
WINNER: Brock Lesnar

World Championship
Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels
All I gotta say is, the Raw roster better be happy that Shawn Michaels is apart of it. If not, Triple H would be Champion forever. I see what’s happening here. Shawn Michaels will beat Triple H. A few weeks from now on Raw, Triple H will beat Shawn Michaels. Then Triple H plans to have Goldberg win the Rumble so he can beat Goldberg at Wrestlemania. Stupid fuckin Triple H.
WINNER: Shawn Michaels

This is always the best match on the whole card. This match has some of the best best talent ever in a rumble. I think it’s really between a group of people:

Chris Jericho
Randy Orton
Kurt Angle
John Cena
Chris Benoit
Big Show

You can rule Kane out as the Undertaker should be coming back soon.
You can rule Jericho out as he has to continue that love with Trish.
You can count Big Show out because he sucks donkey nuts.

That leaves:

Randy Orton
Kurt Angle
John Cena
Chris Benoit

This rumble is anyone’s to win. I can see Goldberg winning it, and getting a return match against Triple H. I can see Randy Orton winning it and setting up the All-Evolution Wrestlemania. I can see Angle winning it setting up another classic Kurt Angle vs. Brock Lesnar match. I can Cena winning it, because they are pushing him like mad. Plus I can see Benoit winning it, because they have been planning to push him for a while.

This is what I like! An unpredictable Royal Rumble. However, I must make a decision and here it is.

WINNER: John Cena

I feel the comments coming on this column. Thanks for reading.

One reply on “Fill Up With Phillip: Volume 5”

Eh, you got 3 of ’em right at least. I was in the other room when I heard Takers gong, and I ran into the living room to see…nothing. I was hoping to see him come walking out. Foley was a nice touch though.

I’m glad Benoit won the Rumble, I just hope they finally give him the belt at Wrestlemania. It’s long over due
