10 Times WWE Got The Royal Rumble Main Event Wrong

The Jekyll and Hyde of wrestling shows.

While giving us some of the best WWE memories of the last 30 years, the Royal Rumble as a show is also notable for about a dozen pretty disappointing or anti-climactic finishes.

Generally, these come about when the company selects the "wrong" wrestler to headline WrestleMania - we're looking at you, Roman Reigns - although it's by no means confined to the Rumble match itself; sometimes, the World Title match in the spot of main event can be a dud, too.

In a way, we've only ourselves to blame. We often go into the Royal Rumble giddy with excitement, ready to usher in the beginning of WrestleMania season and get a glimpse of the match-ups that might await us on the Grandest Stage of Them All.

We're kids on Christmas morning, basically, and Vince McMahon is our dad. More often than not, he thinks his entire audience have been naughty boys and girls.
