Best Match: Randy Orton vs. John Cena
Worst Match: None
Really strong showing for Bray Wyatt against Daniel Bryan. Really, it's difficult not to have a good match with Bryan, but this match did wonders for Bray's character. Bray got the win and also got to show that he can go.
Great match between Randy Orton and John Cena with Orton getting the win after a distraction by the Wyatt Family. Lots of near falls, both guys hitting and kicking out of each other's finishers. Really fun stuff. The crowd tried their best to hijack the match. Orton's reactions to the crowd were great.
The Wyatt Family took out Cena after the match. I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes.
The Rumble match was a lot of fun. Kofi's annual The Floor Is Lava game was great as usual. Not too many surprise entrants though. With such a deep roster, and with a growing number of Legends on call, a 40-Man Rumble might be the way to go.
The crowd was certainly not happy about no Daniel Bryan in the Rumble. Poor Mysterio. They cheered up at the possibility of Roman Reigns winning, but went back to booing when Reigns was eliminated by Rumble Winner, Batista.
It was good show with good matches, but I can't help feeling a little disappointed by the Bryanless/non Reigns winning finish. But, it's a WWE PPV, what else is new?

Best match: Bryan v Wyatt
Worst match: none
A good show, not amazing but felt got money's worth. I always love the crowd enthusiasm for Bryan but man that was too much at the end just crapping all over eveything. And if anyone says they should have had him in the match; unless he was winning crowd reaction may have been even worse. I couldnt really pick a bad match. Hated the prematch ending but they all worked well. Some may not like the Lesnar Show "non match" but I thought it was an interesting story. Cena Orton had that screwjon finish but felt they were trying hard. Rumble was good but had a weird flow at times but lots of well done mini stories. Kofis two spots were entertaining as always, Torito was a nice surprise. Man I was rooting for Bryan to get his wish of seeing Cesaro Torito. Felt they missed a good storyline moment though by not having Punk and Nash face off but I guess thats long forgotten.
Sign of things to come dept: No Royal Rumble special set? Cost cutting already for the move away from ppv? I cant recall the last ppv that just use the regular tron set.
As far as my vote for best match, Bryan and Wyatt delivered a hell of a match. The abagail into the railing was something else. Still not sure if Cena Wyatt can work but rooting for Wyatt to hold up his end of such a spotlight.
Is Chamber Orton-Lesnar or Orton vs 5 folks? Kane vs Punk seems obvious and Del Rio vs Batista. Curious to see the rest of the card for the last chance for a true ppv purchase.

Worst Rumble I can remember. Crowd said it all. No surprises, Batista isn't over 1 bit, best thing was El Torito. Just horrible. The entire show STUNK! Orton over Cena pure b.s. we've seen 100 times & awful finish. Glad I didn't pay & may not even get the channel after this mess.
Best match Daniel Bryan vs Bray Wyatt
Worst match New Age Outlaws vs Rhodes Brothers(it was fine)
Congratulations Pittsburgh crowd for reminding everybody why everybody hates smart crowds.
Best match: Wyatt-Bryan
Worst match: Royal Rumble
Wyatt-Bryan was excellent, and the right man won: Wyatt is a main event
heel, at least for now. Orton-Cena dragged for a while, but improved toward the finish.
Batista underwhelming as Rumble winner. Lesner-Show was well done; Lesner is again an
