    Royal Rumble 2000

    Royal Rumble 2000

    On this week's Grilling JR with WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross & Conrad Thompson, the topic is one of the most fondly remembered WWE PPVs of all time, the Royal Rumble from the year 2000, which took place in New York City's Madison Square Garden!

They would engage in one of the best matches in MSG history. Plus the newly signed Dudley Boyz would get a chance to show what they were all about in a Tables Match with The Hardy Boyz, and former ECW Champion Tazz would debut to one of the loudest pops of all time, against a very early in his career Kurt Angle. Hear all about these talents and their matches, plus Mae Young and the Bikini Contest, The Rock, Chris Jericho, Chyna, The New Age Outlaws, The Acolytes, Edge, Christian, Bob Backlund, Kane, and so much more!
