    If the Rock won first everybody would know Cena was going to win the Rumble. Not much mystery in this rumble!

  • Kristopher Robinson

    Very much agree

  • Matt Trovato

    It’s better the way they had it where the RR match was last, since Cena won first it was almost a given that Rock would win the belt.
