      Hit and miss

      The Royal Rumble 2006 is probably one of the most poorly booked Rumble pay per views of all time, largely because the most exciting match; the Rumble itself, was booked half-way through the event rather than at the end, all for the sake of a special spot planned after the dreadful Angle vs Mark Henry match, in which The Undertaker returned in admittedly rather good style.

      The show opens with a 6-Way Cruiserweight match for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship, with champion Kid Kash attempting to somehow survive against Gregory Helms, Funaki, Jamie Noble, Nunzio and Paul London. This was a great way to open the pay per view, delivering both a satisfying end and a high level of athletics altogether.

      The second match is curiously one-note, with no title being on the line, as Mickie James faces Ashley Massaro, with Trish Stratus as the Special Guest Referee. It's thoroughly predictable and not the least bit watchable really. It's also far too long considering Ashley's lack of wrestling ability.

      The worst match of the card, though, is The Boogeyman fighting John "Bradshaw" Layfield; it's uninspired but thankfully very short.

      The Royal Rumble match is excellent, though, but strangely booked in the middle of the card. Some are going to argue that it panders to sympathy, but the winner is well deserved for sure.

      John Cena then attempts to regain his WWE Championship from Edge, who won it by crook at the New Year's Revolution pay per view 3 weeks earlier with his Money in the Bank cashing in. Sadly the result is too predictable.

      The real bust is how the show bows out with a real popcorn fart of an ending; Kurt Angle defends his World Heavyweight Championship against Mark Henry in a thoroughly boring and poor way to end the show.
