Fightful Select have shared some news and notes from backstage at this weekend’s Royal Rumble 2023 pay-per-view event.
– The main event match and the beatdown angle that followed was said to have been a “curtain sellout,” with all eyes from talent and production staff glued to the monitors backstage to watch the story unfold. Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens were left decimated in the ring at the hands of The Bloodline following Zayn’s chairshot to the Tribal Chief.
– The atmosphere at the show was said to be very laid back, with many of the talents’ children having fun and playing backstage.
– The performance by HARDY was largely scoffed at by those within WWE, and the feeling was that it compromised things on the show.
– Though the show was scheduled for a four-hour runtime, the Rumble still ran long by twelve minutes.
