The Two Sheds Review: WWE Royal Rumble

It’s been universally panned, so much so that there was even a news story about it on the BBC website. But was it as bad as everyone said it was?

We’re on the Road to WrestleMania, and WWE is in a fickle state at the moment. With top superstars seemingly returning, and matches being made for the greatest event of all time, one cannot help but wonder what would’ve happened if things took place differently. Would the scenario be different? Or would it still remain the same? Join me as I speculate on CM Punk’s WWE Title reign, and what would happen if things turned out differently.
