ECW

Does anyone knows if ECW wrestlers will join the royal rumble match? SOAD KoRn 21:08, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

No idea, though by SummerSlam I think we'll have an idea of what will happen. --Oakster (Talk) 22:01, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

If ECW does become part of it, the Rumble match will probably have to be 10 from each brand now. 10 from Raw, 10 from SmackDown!, and 10 from ECW. 12.37.71.179 04:11, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

It was announced on ECW.com

" For the first time ever, WWE's Royal Rumble will be taken to the extreme as ECW invades this 20th annual pay-per-view event on Jan. 28. Read more

Also for the first time ever, Extremists will participate in the traditional 30-man Royal Rumble Match itself, the winner receiving a championship main event match at WrestleMania 23. "

--Romis 01:10, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

It was announced on WWE.com that the brands will not be equal this year. We all know who won now so why does that matter. "Go Undertaker" Sorry I had to say that. -- Weatherman289 16:54, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Regarding local commercials revealing Spoilers

This is a big issue that seems to attract a lot of vandalism to upcoming wrestling event articles. The problem being that random people deliberately add matches to the upcoming event's card that have supposedly been announced on commercials aired during RAW, Smackdown!, or ECW. Once these people are confronted about their additions of these spoilers, they tend to use the commercials as their source. The problem is that they do not seem to realize that these promos shown when a WWE broadcast goes off the air during commercials are actually only airing on specific local areas and are NOT in fact being shown nation wide. WWE (at times) unintentionally releases commercials and promos on future events, spoiling matches and sometimes even their outcomes, to the specific local media outlet. This is stupidly done to attract interest from fans in that local area and increase possible attendance and buyrate figures for the upcoming event. The most recent case being the Vengeance DX promo notable for being released in some areas roughly two months before the actual event took place. Only when matches are announced on-screen by talent or during the actual WWE broadcast and NOT during commercials can this sort of information NOT be considered a spoiler. Some may argue, "So what if they aren't shown nation wide, they were still released by World Wrestling Entertainment which means they are legit and therefore all matches spoiled have a right to be added to articles!" Now the problem with that simply is this... It is unencyclopedic. You see, what these people fail to realize is that Wikipedia is NOT, I repeat, NOT a Wrestling News site. Wikipedia is not a crystal ball and therefore cannot provide spoilers on future history or events that have yet to be. Wikipedia is an internet encyclopedia, in other words, it's an ENCYCLOPEDIA. If you honestly feel the need to be an Internet Troll and add content spoiling what has yet to occur (in this case about wrestling), then please do so elsewhere such as... oh wow! ...a Wrestling News site! As best stated on Wikipedia Policy... "Before adding any sort of content, ask yourself what would a reader expect to find in an encyclopedia." ...and I highly doubt that you would be expecting to find out who will be in the main event at WrestleMania 100, even if you do happen to find a promo somewhere right now announcing it to be Hulk Hogan vs. Vince McMahon's grandson. Content such as spoilers, rumors, and other nonsense will be removed on the spot for the reasons just explained. This content simply does not comply with Wikipedia's Policies and guidelines and the addition of it is considered vandalism. Once again, please do NOT add any sort of content that even you would know is a spoiler (spoiling future history and events that have yet to be} and unencyclopedic. If you do in fact feel the need to be an Internet Troll, please do so elsewhere and not on Wikipedia. Thank you for reading and I honestly do hope that this clears up any confusion over spoilers and why they are being removed. Thank you. -- bulletproof 3:16 20:06, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Poster

Do NOT add in a poster unless you have proof that it comes from an official website (like wwe.com). TJ Spyke 22:57, 3 December 2006 (UTC)


Keeping Kayfabe

i was thinking why dont wiki put a lock on so that matches cant be added until a month before or something because in most cases this is the time they release it officaly ((Dazzy1994)) 21:17 11 December 06 ((Uk))

It will probably get denied since there isn't much vandalism yet. You are right though, this article will get a lot of vandalism though just like every WWE PPV article does in the weeks leading up to the event, and this article will end up semi-protected just like the others. TJ Spyke 21:20, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

Royal Rumble Match

why wait untill at least one participant has been announced? its going to be a definate match, so why wait?Cradle666 13:53, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

That is just the way it's usually done, even WWE doesn't list the match this early either. TJ Spyke 21:32, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

well someone obvously doesnt read this or the warning put on the edit page so i have taken down the royal rumble match as every other bugger does it to me. Cradle666 16:31, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

But who says its gonna be a definate match the WWE may decide to shonk us and not include it for some reason ha ha, highly doubtful but hey anything can happen in the WWE. The Legendary One 04:42, 7 January 2007 (UTC)
There is no need for the whole logic of "just the way it's usually done". The match will happen, and the whole warning note wasn't needed at all. RobJ1981 21:06, 7 January 2007 (UTC)
It wouldn't be needed if people didn't keep adding the match in. TJ Spyke 22:35, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

So, why shouldn't it be added until one person has been announced? Is there a reason other than tradition? -- The Hybrid 05:31, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Its says on WWE.com there will be a royal rumble and they've added it to the matches.—Preceding unsigned comment added by 144.132.172.7 (talkcontribs)

You are kinda late, that's why I didn't revert it since WWE officially announced it. Welcome BTW. TJ Spyke 03:41, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Then for future reference, is there a reason other than tradition? -- The Hybrid 11:15, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

I think it's just getting ahead of ourselves. Technically, we could put for the Royal Rumble of next year the Royal Rumble match down right now, but considering we still have an entire year to go through of PPV's, not to mention another New Year's Revolution, it just doesn't make much sense to add it in now. Plus, I know this is doubtful, but it's possible that there may not BE a Royal Rumble match at a Royal Rumble PPV. Wait, just wait, let me explain. We've had Survivor Series without traditional Survivor Series matches (2002, 1998 comes to mind). It's much rarer to not have a Rumble match than a traditional Survivor Series match, but, it could happen. But, overall, I think it is just tradition to wait until WWE.com posts the match or until we have one participant, whichever comes first. Personally, I have no problem with it. Anakinjmt 15:27, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
Well, the anons do care. Ignoring them without a good reason, tradition that has nothing to do with policy isn't a good reason, is a nasty habit that too many of us have started. Also, for more than a decade there has been a Royal Rumble matchup. To say that we shouldn't add it because it may not happen is just foolish IMO. Besides, Wikipedia hasn't been around long enough for any of these "traditions" to be set in stone. Also, it isn't just rare to not have a Royal Rumble match at the Royal Rumble PPV, it hasn't ever happened. As far as the next Royal Rumble PPV, that article shouldn't even exist yet IMO. Cheers, -- The Hybrid 22:21, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
It also has to do with matches not being added until they are announced by WWE. WWE just finally announced it the other day, and that's why I stopped removing it. TJ Spyke 23:15, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
In this case is waiting really necessary? There is a certain ammount of common sense that we are allowed to apply to this kind of thing. -- The Hybrid 23:19, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
But again, you never know what they may pull in WWE. I think most people before the main event of December to Dismember was announced that that New Year's Revolution would have an Elimination Chamber match again (I certainly did). And, again, Survivor Series has had PPV's before where they haven't had traditional survival matches. I realize it hasn't happened yet with the Rumble, but better to be safe than sorry. Plus, technically, until WWE or WWE.com has announced the Rumble match, addition of the Rumble match could (I believe anyway) be considered speculation, which is most definitely not allowed. It's too late now to do this, but I'd suggest for next year's Royal Rumble (again, assuming they have it, which is pretty much a given, but still) that we put in a note saying something like "Please do not add the Rumble match until WWE or WWE.com has officially announced the match." Something to that effect. Anakinjmt 14:27, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
It is on WWE.com now, so we can keep it on the page.Freebird Jackson 15:47, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
Right, I'm talking about next year's Rumble PPV. Anakinjmt 17:55, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, we're just planning ahead. -- The Hybrid

Anyway, as I said before there has never been a Royal Rumble PPV without a Royal Rumble Match. Common sense says that there never will be, as that is considered the biggest PPV other than Wrestlemania. The fan backlash would be tremendous, and the buyrate would be terrible. There will never ever be a Royal Rumble PPV without a Royal Rumble match. We do know that about what the WWE will pull, and it isn't speculation. No RR would be terrible for business, and it will never ever happen. That being said, leaving it out of the article until it is announced is pointless. -- The Hybrid 23:34, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

I'll just state this once more, but I think again it's just to keep us from getting ahead of ourselves. I certainly agree with you on the odds of there being a Royal Rumble match, but again, it's just to keep from getting ahead of ourselves too much. Anakinjmt 20:06, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
My response to this would be the same as my last paragraph, which means that we are just going in circles with no end in sight. I'll drop it. -- The Hybrid 23:26, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

I don't know if anyone notices but, the Royal Rumble Match on the 2007 article the diagram is wrong in accordance to the WWE website. As you might remember Rey Mystero (I think I spelled it wrong) is out on injury.

Weatherman289 16:43, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Smackdown championship match

Given that it's not known that Batista will hold the title by the Royal Rumble, should we even be saying anything other than it's a title match? wwe.com [1] specifies that:

The World Heavyweight Championship, currently held by Batista, will be contested at the Royal Rumble. Per General Manager Theodore Long's orders, the winner of Friday's SmackDown Beat the Clock Sprint will get an opportunity to challenge the Animal, or whoever the Champion is at the annual January pay-per-view spectacular. [my emphasis]

--Dave. 22:10, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

As of right now he is the champ, if he loses the belt hen we will change it. Plus, Theodore Long said Batista would be happy to defend the belt against the winner. TJ Spyke 23:16, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
Okay. --Dave. 09:24, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

The match is Batista vs Ken Kennedy and that is final. No point changing it --86.134.154.245 15:24, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

or at least "final" until next week's SmackDown!; we haven't seen Teddy Long's reaction to Kennedy's interference yet. --Dave. 16:25, 13 January 2007 (UTC)
If you were refering to the countless reverts, those were because Wikipedia doesn't use spoilers in wrestling articles. Now that it has aired most everywhere, it will not be removed. -- The Hybrid 16:33, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

Royal Rumble match 2

Shouldn't we put now who will be the people evolved in the Royal Rumble match? That was based in this article http://www.wwe.com/shows/royalrumble/exclusives/39182221 on WWE.com who says that these wrestlers will be in the match: Kenny Dykstra, Chris Masters, Viscera (and maybe Jeff Hardy, Shelton Benjamin, Carlito and Johnny Nitro, if I read well) Xbox6 01:01, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

25 have been announced:

1. Shelton Benjamin 2. Chris Benoit 3. Carlito 4. Kenny Dykstra 5. Edge 6. Finlay 7. Ric Flair 8. Chavo Guerrero 9. Jeff Hardy 10. Matt Hardy 11. Hardcore Holly 12. Kane 13. King Booker 14. Chris Masters 15. Shawn Michaels 16. The Miz 17. Johnny Nitro 18. Randy Orton 19. Montel Vontavious Porter 20. CM Punk 21. Sabu 22. The Sandman 23. Undertaker 24. Rob Van Dam 25. VisceraFreebird Jackson 04:46, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

ECW World Title

If you look at this [2], it merely says the winner get a "World Championship" shot at Wrestlemania.

However, WWE has shown that they consider the ECW Title on par with the WWE or World Heavyweight Titles (Cyber Sunday).

So this would have to mean that all 3 titles are eligible to be chosen. (3 brands -- 3 titles) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.36.8.49 (talkcontribs)

That would be original research. TJ Spyke 23:54, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
Unfortunantly, it's obvious an ECW superstar won't win, so we can cut this debate out. Vince Mcmahon has shown that he couldn't care less about the ECW brand (as shown at December 2 Dismember). But there is a point though. If by some one in a million chance an ECW superstar wins, whats he gonna do, challenge for the WWE Title? I think thats the reason why the ECW World Heavyweight Championship was brought in. There still is the fact that ECW likely won't get much farther. VKM won't have ECW at the top of the greatest PPV to ever exist. Killswitch Engage 00:38, 17 January 2007 (UTC)Killswitch Engage
He is trying to give it some credibility, though he is failing miserably, so it is possible that he would have an ECW guy win, or he may have the winner challenge for the ECW Title. We shouldn't rule out this possibility as of yet, though my money is on the Undertaker. Cheers, -- The Hybrid 00:44, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
The news i'm reading is that Undertaker's contract says he can get either the RR win or a WM win, and I can't see him having his streak ended. Anways, it's well known that Vince wants ECW to be another farm league (like OVW and DSW) as a way to train wrestlers before they go to RAW/SmackDown!, so I doubt an ECW guy would win. TJ Spyke 00:47, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
True, I don't see the streak ending yet either. I wasn't aware of that particular clause in his contract, and since I was hearing rumors of him vs. Batista I figured that it was a fair guess. Anyway, I was just saying that we shouldn't rule it out yet since Vince is making a little bit of an effort to save the sinking ship since he signed a somewhat long-term contract with Sci-Fi, and having the RR winner challenge for the ECW Title would help it feel like it was actually worth something and not just a fashion statement. Though I don't think that this will be the case, it is a very real possibility, and not one that should be ruled out immediately. -- The Hybrid 03:17, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
The thing of debate that I see, is the the ECW Title has been said to be on par with the WWE Championship and the WHC (ex.Cyber Sunday). What I see is people saying that the title is a World Title and as such will be defended at WM if nessecary. Now I don't know about what that one magazine recognizes it as, but my earlier days would tell me that that is reasonable enough to add. But now, I'm telling anon's that, however much you may want it to be, it's not enough for us. We would need full recognition from WWE to be able to confirm that the title can be selected as a title to be challenged for at WM. On the Undertaker thing, Iv'e heard say that Batista will end Takers streak, retaining the WHC. Many people I have talked to have said that Batista is not seasoned enough to be the man to end the streak, that it should be someone like Kane, who has history with Taker. Sorry, kinda rambled, but I decided to see if I could make myself useful. User:killswitch Engage


Thorn vs. Dreamer

On ECW jan 16 they announced dreamer and thorn for rumble so don't take it down busters —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.241.83.120 (talkcontribs)

If it is up on WWE.com, which I haven't looked into, then we will keep it in the article. We have to list the sources, and it is hard, if not impossible, to cite a TV show. -- The Hybrid 03:58, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
O NO NO NO NO i read that i can add people if it's anniounced on tv and doesnt ruin kayfabe so go away hybrid youre a meanie
Don't you ever steal my signature again. I wasn't saying that I would remove it, I was just saying why someone else might. If it isn't on WWE.com, then no you cannot add it because it counts as WP:OR. You have been warned, and I will not go away. -- The Hybrid 03:58, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
I din't mean to steal your sig for that i be sorry mate. BUT, what autority do you have to warn me r u the internet police. NO, YOU'RE GARBAGE. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 71.241.83.120 (talk) 04:02, 17 January 2007 (UTC).
I'm a Wikipedian who understands the rules, and is doing the job he has been given in enforcing them. Also, do not make personal attacks such as calling people garbage. -- The Hybrid 04:05, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
YOU WEREN'T given any job this is all voluntary what a baby. Do you honestly feel important? I want a real answer to that question. Warning me and getting me blocked is you sign of hiding from your sad truth that your nothing. But you cant hide it from me. i bet you get all the girls with your mad wikipedian skills am I right. CHEERS! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 71.241.83.120 (talk) 04:11, 17 January 2007 (UTC).
I would just like to remind everyone of the guidelines on Wikipedia outlined under WP:CIVIL, WP:NPA, and WP:AGF. In short, treat each other like well-meaning adults. --Haemo 04:15, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
I intend to ignore the rest of this anyway. Obviously we are not dealing with a rational person. -- The Hybrid 04:18, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
FYI comments like this probably aren't the most helpful. Wink.png --Haemo 04:20, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
That depends on what your goals for the conversation are. I assure you that I have what's best for Wikipedia in mind. I'll explain when it is done in private if you want. Cheers, -- The Hybrid 04:24, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
That kid was only half right anyways, the announcement was that they would be facing off in the Rumble Matchup, but that child seriously does need to grow up. The Legendary One 01:42, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Matt Striker

I heard very distinctly Joey Styles and Tazz talk about him being in the Rumble during his match with C.M. Punk on ECW on SciFi. Doesn't that confirm him for the match?Freebird Jackson 04:17, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Unless you have a source which meets WP:V and WP:RS, then it's still not encyclopedic content. --Haemo 04:18, 17 January 2007 (UTC)


SHUT UP HOMO.—Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.241.83.120 (talkcontribs)
Dude, you have been warned about this. Personal attacks on Wikipedians are NOT allowed. And, if you think action won't be taken, think again. See Triple Crown Champion. Break the rules, there are consequences. Grow up already. Anakinjmt 04:37, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Title match Placement

Shouldn't the title matches be placed together? IMO, all matches should be placed before the Rumble match so the article will look better.Freebird Jackson 04:33, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Reminds me of the debate at Armageddon over which match goes where. The way we're doing it (I don't know if it's policy or just tradition) is to list each match as it is announced. I do think the Rumble match should go last, as we all know that will be the last event, and that is THE main event, but honestly, it doesn't really matter to me, because once the PPV's over, it will be changed according to which matches came first. Anakinjmt 04:37, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
I agree, I just think it makes the article look cleaner for new people, you know what I mean?Freebird Jackson 04:40, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
I was under the impression that this was policy, but then again I was given the same impression about finishers. See WP:PW/FMP to see what I had to do to justify what tons of us had been doing mistakenly. Anyway, the Rumble was announced on WWE.com after the Smackdown Sprint, so it was technically in the right spot. If it would be moved anywhere it would be put first since it was a given that it was going to take place anyway. Cheers, -- The Hybrid 04:51, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Also, the championship matches happened after the rumble last year. -- The Hybrid 04:57, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Huh. Thought it was last. I don't have the money to watch any PPVs while they're happening, and I haven't seen last year's Rumble on DVD anywhere in stores, so I didn't know that. But, yeah, first does make sense too. Anakinjmt 04:59, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, last year they threw a curve ball and put the title matches last for the first time in history that I know of. If it is agreed on, then I'll go ahead and move it there. Now I have to go, so later. -- The Hybrid 05:02, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
Actually, there have beeb several RR's where the RR match was not the main event. The RR match was announced last week, so it should be SD Title match/RR match/WWE Title match. TJ Spyke 08:25, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Actually there was 2 last years and 1998 i think the rumble match should be lastwrestlinglover420 04:59, 17 January 2007 (UTC)


1988, 1997, 1998, 2006 each had another match after the rumble match. The agreed order in listing matches before the event is in the order they are announced. TJ Spyke 22:23, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Well, the RR match IS the main event this year, as http://www.wwe.com/shows/royalrumble/matches/35535102/preview/ says "The main event of the Royal Rumble will be the traditional 30-Man Royal Rumble Match.". I had added this last week, and it was removed. Dunno if it was an auto removal or someone took it out. Forock 17:13, 26 January 2007
They also say the RR winner will main event WM, and that doesn't always happen. Last year Cena/Triple H was the main event instead of Angle/Orton/Mysterio. TJ Spyke 02:00, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Each brand has their own main event. He was in the SmackDown main event. Koberulz 14:30, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

Now I'm not one to gloat but i FREAKING told you so!wrestlinglover420 04:59, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Kobe, don't give me that BS. There is only one MAIN event and it's the last match of the show. There was only 1 main event for WM22, and it was Cena/Triple H. TJ Spyke 22:04, 1 February 2007 (UTC)
Incorrect. Each brand has their own main event. That's been the case since the brand split. Koberulz 06:57, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
I know what WWE says, but any intelligent person knows there is only 1 main event. The last match to take place (on TV, since dark matches aren't counted) is the main event. So, Mysterio has not main evented WM since last years main event was Cena/HHH. TJ Spyke 07:03, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
I would suggest WWE would be more correct than you are. Koberulz 16:54, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Striker

During Joey Styles' ECW Commentary on Tuesday he mentioned that both CM Punk and his opponent, Matt Striker will be in the Royal Rumble. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gavyn Sykes (talkcontribs)

No, he said they would represent ECW AT the Royal Rumble, which could mean that Striker just appears at the event. TJ Spyke 05:34, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

WWE Championship

Should we mention that the WWE Championship match is in jepordy de to Cena's injury on RAW. User:Killswitch Engage

Go to wwe.com and check their RAW review, it's obviously kayfabe (especially with statements like Cena refusing medical treatment) to make it seem more impressive if he wins or as an excuse if he loses. TJ Spyke 08:05, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

Order Of Matches

i have changed the order of matches, reason being so they suit the same order as shown on WWE.comCradle666 17:26, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

I reverted it. After all the fuss that a certain editor named Rob made (that resulted in the Armageddon article being locked), it was agreed that matches will be listed in the order they are announced. TJ Spyke 23:38, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

so why does wwe.com have it up differently?? after all, this is a wwe pay per view Cradle666 23:51, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

They do it differently for who knows what reason, probably in order of importance. Doesn't matter. We list matches in the order they are announced. Anakinjmt 20:12, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
You'll find that we do a lot of things differently then the WWE. -- The Hybrid 02:40, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Royal Rumble participants.

I`m just reading this & I just don`t know how the ranking is done. It should be by order of name. Can you say me what is the order? --Soopafred 01:14, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

I believe it was agreed that participants should be listed (by Brand) in the order they were announced. --Dave. 16:05, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
That is correct, they are listed in the order that they were announced. TJ Spyke 02:10, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

They CAN Challange for the ECW World Title

Vladimir Kozlov

There are 30 men listed for the Royal Rumble match, which i guess is correct because its the same on wwe.com. But on Smackdown this week Vladimir Kozlov was interviewed and said even though he isnt on any of the 3 brands yet he can still compete in The Royal Rumble. Don.-.J 14:30, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Kozlov just said he could win it if he were in it. Cole was asking him a hypothetical question and in no way said Kozlov would actually be in the Rumble. Ohgltxg 15:27, 27 January 20007 (UTC)

I could barely understand him, but what I took from his interview was that he would like to compete at the rumble, not necessarily in it. So he may just be having a squash match similar to MVP's debut. Cheers, -- The Hybrid 20:29, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

I heard that he would be facing an unnamed jobber. Big Boss 0 22:34, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Why did you remove the order the wrestlers were getting eliminated, jag? I was watching that punk

Source? TJ Spyke 07:20, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

pwinsider.com/ViewArticle.asp?id=22621&p=1 theres the source TJ, i also added it to the article Cradle666 16:35, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Trivia

Can somebody remove the NN trivia (like Flair being #1 and the note about Gregory Helms)? TJ Spyke 07:22, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

And Viscera too. TJ Spyke 07:24, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
It seems pretty notable, though it would be better suited for the main Rumble page-- bulletproof 3:16 07:26, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Agreed. What about all 3 brands being in it? That is already mentioned at the top of the page. TJ Spyke 07:29, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
True that, true that. -- bulletproof 3:16 07:31, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
I agree trivia should be on the main RR page. - Weatherman289 16:48, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
The rumor about HBK needs to go. Thankfully my computer should be fixed Friday so I can clean-up the page. TJ Spyke 20:53, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

NPOV/Weasel Words?

I call an NPOV/Weasel Word foul on the following section:

  • This Royal Rumble was criticized heavily by smarks because all of the champions retained, a move that many predicted months in advance of the rumble, despite the controversial nature of an aged superstar like Batista holding the title.

a) Most (not all, but most) feedback on the show has been positive, including by myself who saw it and b) this seems to be one person's opinion under the guise of "many others have said it" without so much as citing a songle source.Wayman975 13:53, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

I've seen mixed feedback. I myself, didn't enjoy anythign about the PPV save the Tag and Rumble matches. That's not really the place for this though, and unless we have an link that is indeed qualify for deletion. Gavyn Sykes 22:53, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Other On-Screen Talent

I added Justin Roberts, the ECW ring announcer. Anyone think Kelly Kelly should be added as well? Gavyn Sykes 22:59, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

She was the ball tumbler, right? Sure, make sure the link is right (so it should be like this: Barbie Blank|Kelly Kelly ). TJ Spyke 23:50, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Or, more accurately, [[Barbie Blank|Kelly Kelly]]. --EazieCheeze 04:21, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

She's been added. Layla and Brooke appeared for all of 15 seconds, so I doubt they should be added. Gavyn Sykes 04:30, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

What is binjo? Shouldn't it be bingo? TJ Spyke 04:32, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Oh hell........ I edited it. Typo. Gavyn Sykes 04:34, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Undertaker edits

I changed part in the trivia section bout Undertaker. I changed that part about "22 years of wrestling" and replaced with "16 years of wrestling in WWE." Someone also made a link a funeral director and not the real Taker. User: Terminator Storm

Time of the Royal Rumble Match

It's confusing. What does the time mean? How long they were in the ring for? I think it would be better to change the times to the time in the royal rumble match that they were eliminated. Also, in the article say that the time stands for blank blank.

The time in the results section (where it says "The Undertaker won the...) is the total length of the match. The times in the table are how long that wrestler lasted before being eliminated. TJ Spyke 05:06, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

Question regarding Khali's record.

It says that Khali tied Kane's record of most consecutive elimination's with seven, but didn't Rikishi and Diesel also share this record? Donco 23:52, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

Khali didn't tie anything. He eliminated 7 people, but Kane eliminated 11. Cheers, -- The Hybrid 00:04, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

But not consecutively Koberulz 14:29, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

Viscera elimination.

Randy Orton had no part of the Viscera elimination he was knelt in the corner at the time when the other 8 men got Viscera over the top. Check here http://www.wwe-zone.com/wwe/royal_rumble/match/2007/index.htm thats the correct eliminations. 217.42.255.223 08:42, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

Commentators

I added Michael Cole as someone deleted him. Anyone think that we shold add that JR and King commentated the Tag Match between MNM and the Hardys? Gavyn Sykes 18:52, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Sorry about that, I didn't realize Alphabetical order was the proper procedure, but assuming it is, the Referee section should also be reordered. Gavyn Sykes 21:01, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

There is no procedure, so I don't know why he moved them around. TJ Spyke 00:53, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
Actually they were supposed to be in alphabetical order when I wrote the other RR articles. --  oakster  TALK  23:44, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
But it's not policy, so it doesn't matter either way. TJ Spyke 23:44, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

Ric Flair

I remember him being elimanated via the combined efforts of Edge and Kenny. Someone edited the page to read just that but it was reverted. Am I remembering wrong? What's the deal? Gavyn Sykes 21:21, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

I am downloading the PPV now, but all the reports I have read say it was just Edge. TJ Spyke 22:48, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Hmm....Maybe Kenny helped get him onto the ropes but Edge pushed him off alone. That would explain my confusion.Gavyn Sykes 22:54, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Royal Rumble 2008- Anaheim, CA

WWE Royal Rumble 2008 is live on January 27, 2008 at Anaheim, CA at the Honda Center. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 204.108.87.254 (talk) 18:50, 2 March 2007 (UTC).

Where did you hear this rumor? WWE themselves onlybriefly mentioned a date (and removed it the same day) and have not mentioned any location. TJ Spyke 01:05, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Steel Book

Should it be mentioned that this is the 1st WWE PPV to be released in SteelBook Source: Silvervision.co.uk Don.-.J 10:57, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

IMO, no. Besides, do you have a source for it being the first one (not that it matters)? TJ Spyke 23:25, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

Layla and Brooke

For whoever added them, they were indeed there but only appeared for about ten seconds to help Kelly Kelly give Ric Flair a standing lap dance. Their presence for a few seconds in one backstage segment isn't notable enough to include them. Gavyn Sykes 23:58, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

I have removed them since they weren't on long enought to be worth noting. TJ Spyke 00:04, 18 May 2007 (UTC)
