First off we will review Wrestle Kindom 11, the flagship New Japan Pro Wrestling event of the year that happened January 4 in the Tokyo Dome. If you saw it, you know how epic it was. Eleven matches in total, eight of them for titles in both NJPW and ROH. And to top it off, what is being called perhaps the best pro wrestling match ever. For the IWGP Heavyweight Title, "The Cleaner" Kenny Omega vs "The Rainmaker" Kasuchika Okada. Dave Meltzer, a respected voice in global sports entertainment, broke new ground by giving this match 6 out of 5 stars.

Returning to the AlamoDome in San Antonio, Royal Rumble goes on Sunday night. This 30th edition of the event promises to have one of the most interesting and competitive Rumble matches ever. Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, Goldberg, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, Chris Jericho, The Miz, Big Show, Braun Strowman, Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler, Luke Harper, Mojo Rawley, Baron Corbin, Rusev, Big Cass, Cesaro, Shaemus, all 3 members of The New Day plus eight more.

Throw in the heavyweight titles from both RAW and SmackDown Live, Cruiserweight title, RAW Womens title, RAW Tag Team title and two more all womens matches and it's clear we will have plenty to discuss. Count on overtime, we are.
