Wrestling Observer Rates Royal Rumble

Pre-show four-way tag match: *1/2

Ambrose vs. Owens: ****1/4

New Day vs. Usos: ***1/4

Del Rio vs. Kalisto: ***1/4

Charlotte vs. Lynch: ***1/4

The Royal Rumble: ****

I’m a little surprised Meltzer went that high for the US Title match.  The Rumble itself was very good and, shenanigans with Reigns aside, told a great story.  No other complaints.
