This was a crazy week in the world of WWE. The Royal Rumble controversy garnered attention from all media outlets around the world. The drama of the Royal Rumble match completely overshadowed the WWE Championship match, which many are considering one of the greatest matches of all time. The following night, Monday Night Raw was cancelled due the blizzard in the northeast United States, but the show went on with WWE replaying most of the Royal Rumble and airing several interview segments. This special edition of Raw, which took place at WWE Headquarters, seemed to improve things for WWE as no fans were present to shift the feelings about certain superstars. Thursday Night Smackdown was a live edition due to the blizzards. Fans seemed to be forgiving the WWE, as Smackdown was the highest rating show on cable television on Thursday night. WWE isn’t avoiding the controversy that occurred at the Royal Rumble, but seems to be embracing it, as Triple H will make an announcement on Raw about the events that occurred.
