– Punk is out as number one. The entire Corre are out and attack Punk. The New Nexus is out to make the save. The Mystery GM chimes in. He orders everyone other than Punk to return to the locker room asap or be out of the Rumble match. Morrison gets knocked off the apron but is able to grab on to the retaining wall like Spider-Man. He walks the wall all the way to the end then jumps to the steps and gets back in the ring without his feet ever touching the floor. The New Nexus gang up on everyone else and eliminate them one by one. Mason Ryan eliminates Ryan all on his own. Booker comes in a cleans house until Mason Ryan tosses him out. Hornswoggle gives Kidd a mini Attitude Adjustment. Diesel is over huge. He looks much younger with his hair dyed black and looks to be in very good shape. Miz is on commentary now that Riley is in the match. Zeke eliminates Big Show. Orton RKO’s everyone left in the match. Orton and Cena have a stare down which actually gets a number of boos. Alex Riley is trying to get back in the match. The referees are trying to get him out and Miz comes in the ring and tosses out Cena. Alberto tosses out Orton for the win. Santino was hiding under the ring. He was never eliminated. Cobra on Del Rio. Santino goes to eliminate Alberto but he reverses it and eliminates Santino.

Winner: Alberto Del Rio

    I have no problem with someone new winning the rumble, but del rio the razor ramon wantabe. Why not punk or Barrett someone who actually deserves to main event? Oh I forgot wwe is main eventing ziggler and the miz del rio is just in line forget the loyal workers. HHH first booking sucked

  2. Agent Cooper says:

    I thought it was funny how they tried teasing Cena/Orton which got zero reaction out the crowd.

    Yes, that was pretty hilarious. You could tell they really wanted the crowd to go crazy for that, but it was met with total silence and indifference.

  3. Amber says:

    I really don’t care the someone new got a push. It’s just the miz screwing over everybody and never fighting a match fair. And he wasn’t even in the rumble and he still help dictate the outcome. It BS that’s all I got to say

  4. Wolfie says:

    Was really hoping for Morrison. Oh well.

  5. Jokerman says:

    Sonia HHH doesn’t do any booking…

  6. Jay says:

    I’m surprised more people aren’t complaining about how the final confrontation in the Rumble (which is usually the most epic part of the Rumble) came down too Santino and Del Rio…I’ll be the first too admit it’s hard for me too see anyone being took seriously as the headliner at Wrestlemania if the best they can toss out is Santino Marella.

    <_< Worst case scnerio here is Taker coming back, winning the World Title at Elimination Chamber, the Del Rio ending the streak…

  7. DeathNote81 says:

    I love Del Rio, but it’s WAY too soon for him to be main eventing WM. What ever happened to logical progression? He hasn’t held any titles, only had one feud, and hasn’t even been on the main roster for a full year.

  8. Sonia says:

    Jokerman are you sure? HHH running the show behind the scenes and pushing Alberto Santino as the last 2 to headline WM. What a joke!

  9. Joe says:

    DeathNote – You’re right, that has never happened. Angle, Lesnar… hell, let’s go back further to Ted DiBiase, Sgt. Slaughter, Yokozuna and I could go on, but I’m sure you get my point.

    Everyone – do we have to criticize every decision WWE makes? Just watch and enjoy. It’s finally fun and unpredictable again. Santino winning would’ve been icing on the cake! How many “smart” fans would’ve guessed that?

  10. kev-do says:

    Its good having new talent win but someone who hasnt been here for a year and not many good matches should not main event wrestlemania. We all know Jomo should have won, maybe punk or barret could have?

  11. Kyle Christie says:

    I thought it was AWESOME the big shock for me was Booker T coz i knew the music i didn’t know Diesel’s music but was still a shocker and Alberto Del Rio winning was good although some other people who have been longer in WWE haven’t gotten good push yet but still it’s someone new right. He will just need to be mega pushed leading up to Wrestlemania

    Amber..I don’t know how you understand the concept of a Push but not the concept of Heels, Faces, Storylines, etc..Also, if you’re referring to matches such as the Ladder Match vs King and the Falls Count Anywhere vs Morrison, it’s understood there is No DQ therefore not “screwing over” anybody..just saying.

    Anyway, like DeathNote I love Del Rio but don’t know who thought it was a good idea for him to reach his current status as is. I hope they have a storyline where Del Rio loses his opportunity at the next PPV or even on SmackDown/Raw, however this time not be added to the WM title match like Rey had been when he won the Rumble…

  13. Jason says:

    Yeah del rio is so green and unpolished. I mean all those years working in Mexico as Dos Caras jr means nothing. What a rookie!

  14. Eric says:

    to everyone who was thinking wade barret would win you obviously dont read this site enough cuz if you did you would know that the undertaker has hand picked barret to be his opponent at WM.
