I was excited to see RVD and it seemed like the crowd was too. He got a huge pop when he came out, and there was massive heat on Jericho when he eliminated him. Plus, a ton of RVD chants broke out. Anyone who doesn’t make a move to try to pick up RVD after seeing how over he still is is crazy.
Also, Orton hit the RKO six times throughout the Rumble, counting the one he hit on the Big Show on the apron. The most men in the ring at the time was fifteen, sixteen if you count times when guys were eliminated almost immediately. The King kept mentioning what a ridiculous number of men were in the ring, and he was right.
They also noted that Orton lasted 48 minutes and 27 seconds to win the Rumble.
