Matt Hardy’s Woken Word of the Week in a top 10 of ridiculous Royal Rumble Twitter moments

The 2019 Royal Rumble had plenty of memorable moments inside the ring. This top ten focuses on neat stuff outside the ring. There’s really no rhyme nor reason, just random stuff tagged on Twitter that tickled my fancy and will be sure to tickle yours.

Let’s get to it.

10. Cats are mesmerized by The Man

It is said that dogs are a man’s best friend. Well, it seems like The Man’s best friends are cats. Or maybe it is the other way around, since that feline can’t take its eye off Becky Lynch.

9. Soccer Socko

Enjoy footballer Billy Sharp’s Mr. Socko celebration after a goal. It has a Royal Rumble hashtag, so it makes the list.

8. Lana’s dirty feet

That caption says it all. I find it amusing that Lana’s feet would be a point of focus. Foot fetish, anyone?

7. Cameraman fall

During the entrance of the Raw tag team champions, the cameraman took a tumble while capturing footage of Bobby Roode.


6. Mascot rumble

The NHL wanted in on the Royal Rumble action, so they gathered up all the mascots for a photo.

That is one Rumble I would definitely watch. Or better yet, I’d love to see them go drinking at a bar.

It wouldn’t be Rumble season without Rumble artwork and toy reenactments.

So many classic action figures.

5. Royal Rumble Burger

You may have already read about the epic burger made from pork bratwurst patty with cheddar cheese, smoked bacon, crispy coleslaw, fried onions, BBQ aioli, and fried mac and cheese wedges, which was sold at Chase Field during the Royal Rumble event. But, have you seen Daniel Bryan holding it?

Bryan looks guilty, like he snuck a bite, got caught, and is trying not to swallow. Or maybe he bought one to do his part to help Chase Field donate to the Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

Here is a close-up view of that monstrous delight.

That burger is so opulent that I would be forced to wear a monocle while consuming it.

4. Heroes

This one is not on the ridiculous scale like the rest, but it is cool so a top ten spot it shall earn.

What we have is artwork depicting Ronda Rousey and Sasha Banks with their wrestling heroes, Roddy Piper and Eddie Guerrero. That would have been one heck of a tag match.

3. Hologram tickets

The Royal Rumble countdown clock always receives a Pavlovian response of excitement, and deservedly so. What better way to get pumped for the show than having a ticket with a holographic three second countdown.


I don’t know about you, but this sort of sorcery still amazes me to this day. You can have your fancy technology like a smartphone. I’d be content with that ticket. I would be using it all day to count down literally anything. 3, 2, 1, time to turn on the television. 3, 2, 1, time to dance a jig. 3, 2, 1, time to eat a chip. 3, 2, 1, time to blow my nose. That’s probably not a good idea for those with a serious case of OCD.

I’m not sure if those tickets were only for floor seats or every ticket sold. Either way, I’m glad they exist. Speaking of the floor seats, give them a gander.

2. Woken Word of the Week


That video certainly did entertain, educate, and enlighten, especially with the bonus Matt fact that he never has milk or toast with breakfast.

1. Lesnar face

Hahaha. I don’t have anything to say about this other than to type laughter. Hahaha. Just look at Brock Lesnar’s expression. I don’t think I will ever cease chuckling when shown that photo. Lesnar is definitely the Beast Incarnate of entertainment.

Which was your favorite ridiculous moment from this year’s Royal Rumble? What are some of the best event tickets you’ve ever seen? What is the funniest wrestling face of all-time?
