"Yes sir, we promised you a great main event..."
The Royal Rumble promo hits showcasing Royal Rumbles of the past. They hype that this year's Rumble will feature 40 participants. Great opening video, I'm more hyped for this PPV than any other since last year's WrestleMania.
Edge's music hits and we're off...
"Excuse Me!!!" Vickie Guerrero comes out and reminds the crowd that the spear is banned. Guerrero goes on to dare Edge to use the spear and says if he uses it, he'll lose the match via disqualification and the title. Dolph Ziggler's music hits and he heads to the ring.
World Title Match:
Edge (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler
Edge gets the early advantage and gets several two counts. Edge takes the match outside and throws Ziggler into the barricade and smashes his face in the mat. Edge bodyslams Ziggler chest-first into the barricade and throws him back in the ring, but is met with a boot to the face when getting back in. Ziggler then starts stomping on the champion and takes the advantage.
Ziggler dominated the match for awhile. Ziggler threw Edge into the ropes and they caught each other with cross bodyblocks. Ziggler then missed a charge in the corner. Edge built some momentum and hit a flying forearm and got a two count. He continued to stay on offense and got more two counts.
Ziggler reversed a flying cross body from the top rope for a two count. Ziggler followed with a dropkick for another two.
Later in the match, Edge locked in a sharpshooter but Ziggler made it to the ropes.
The finish of the match saw Edge look like he was going for the spear, but thought against it. Ziggler then locked in a sleeperhold, but Edge reversed it and hit a DDT. Edge covered Ziggler, but Guerrero pulled the refs leg. Kelly Kelly came to ringside and knocked Guerrero on her keyster. Ziggler hit the Zig-Zag and Edge kicked out at two.
Ziggler then went for the sleeperhold again and held it in for several moments. Edge managed to get up to his feet, but knocked out the ref as he tried to wiggle Ziggler off. With the referee and Vickie down, Edge then decided it was time for the spear. Edge nailed Ziggler for the spear as the ref came to. Edge then hit the killswitch and got the three count! Great opener.
