I've been wondering about this.  If they actually work the GREATEST ROYAL RUMBLE EVER like a Royal Rumble, you're talking over 90 minutes for that match alone, closer to 2 hours if its not rushed (which it will be).  Going to be a late Friday night.

So 90 minutes at the least for the rumble plus 7 title matches, I assume that they will not go long for any of them but even then it is going to have to be at least 10 mins for the main titles. Add in all the entrances and video packages, rusev vs taker and hhh vs cena this show is going to be very long. Mania had 11 matches and went a bit over five hours for the main show, so far i think this has 10 matches and one of them has to go something like 90 even if they do 60 second intervals. This show may be as long if not probably longer than mania we also do not know what sort of special events/ceremonies they may do in the show that might take it longer still. This show, the politics of it the booking of lesnar vs reigns all looks like an dreadful mess but one that I am morbidly curious about.

This sounds like the perfect work from home Friday afternoon.

Especially if you consider Taker's current shape. There's a reason they didn't go long at Mania, and Taker still looked old and washed up. So, against Rusev, you can already imagine what the match will look like.

 

Jericho confirmed for this show. 

 

Well… I hope that doesn't mean we don't get a Naito match down the stretch.

I don't know. For one thing, it means they trust Rusev to take Taker's stuff and MAYBE get some in on himself. They also trust him to work a convoluted match like a Casket Match. They see him as big enough, relative to their other options, to stand with Taker in a featured spot to a degree. I imagine if he has to travel all the way there, he'd much rather be in this match than just be in the Royal Rumble, payday aside. Plus, you know he and English are going to have a lot of fun with promos and things to build it up.

Taker/Rusev ends with Taker sending the casket off to the morgue. We follow the hearse and the "morgue" is just an outhouse with "TNA" spray-painted on the side.

Taker didn't work the Kuweit cards or any Support to the Troops ?

 

Will Lana be there ? (yeah, I know)

 

I remember in 96 Taker tagged with Bret and he wrestled Davey on the actual Tournament.

 

As for the Tribute shows I recall he had a match with Morrison.

Okay, so it's not even Taker's debut in the Middle-East. Thanks.

At this point Naito seems significantly cooled down to the point where I don't think the match would help even if it took place.

If they make Taker-Rusev a sprint like they did with Cena at Mania this may be oddly enjoyable.

Yeah, I am definitely looking forward to it.

Well forget rusev vs taker being a fun sprint because it is apparently taker Vs Jericho now.
