royal rumble ronda rousey

The Royal Rumble is here and there’s a lot of buzz surrounding Ronda Rousey coming back. Dave Meltzer and I talked about it last night on Wrestling Observer Radio. It looks like Ronda is going to be here for a little while longer than originally thought.

Steven Conway put together our Guide To The Royal Rumble, which is your one stop shop for all things leading into the big show.

Lastly, we did a preview show on our Fight Game Media Twitter account through Twitter Spaces.

We’ll be back with live coverage of the show.

There was no pre-show match, so we’re starting right with the show.

Roman Reigns Vs Seth Rollins

Seth came out in Shield gear.

It’s an early sprint. Seth put Roman through the table, hit a buckle bomb and then a curb stomp and got a two count. It was a great kick out.

Seth went for another curb stomp and Reigns clotheslined him to get the heat. Reigns hit the Superman Punch for a two count. Reigns was going to hit the Spear and Rollins turned it into a Pedigree for a two count. Roman hit a spear and Seth started cackling while offering a fist bump. Roman put the guillotine on and Seth reached the rope, but Roman wouldn’t let go and he got disqualified.
