As Al Monelli states in this episode, "Let's stop burying the lead here..."

Randy Orton won the 2017 Royal Rumble. And that's a problem, but not for the reason you may suspect.

Host Tim Kail & Al Monelli return to discuss the 2017 Royal Rumble, and in addition to sharing their reactions to the structure of the Rumble-match itself (what was good and what was bad) they examine the reality of Randy Orton and the social implications of his victory. Tim & Al also dissect the stellar John Cena vs AJ Styles Championship match. Follow Tim on Twitter @TimKailWrites and visit www.workofwrestling.com.
