    Cody Rhodes Wins At No. 30

    Cody Rhodes Wins At No. 30

    Cody Rhodes won the WWE Royal Rumble in his return to WWE, entering the event at No. 30. Rhodes won by finally eliminating Logan Paul and GUNTHER, who entered at No. 1. In addition to having the most eliminations (5), GUNTHER also set the record for time spent in the Royal Rumble, lasting well over 62 minutes. The Final 4 featured Rhodes, Seth Rollins, GUNTHER and Logan Paul.

    This year’s WWE Royal Rumble boasted a star-studded field, with a late entry by Brock Lesnar, and several possible crowd-pleasing surprises to boot. But surprises were few and far between. All told, the 2023 Royal Rumble only had just three surprise entrants in the forms of Edge, Booker T and Logan Paul.

    The Rock remained the subject of speculation due to his ties to Roman Reigns and The Bloodline, while Stone Cold Steve Austin—who was curiously posting workout videos ahead of WrestleMania season—emerged as a late candidate. WWE reportedly made a big-money offer for Austin to headline WrestleMania, and the news coincided with a late surge for the Texas Rattlesnake’s odds. By Sunday afternoon, Austin settled in at +550, well inside the Top 5.

    Neither Rock or Austin showed up at the Royal Rumble, which kicked off the Big 4 pay-per-view.

    The 2023 Royal Rumble had its share of moments, but it certainly will not live up to the high mark of its predecessors, like Steve Austin’s dramatic third win at Royal Rumble 2001 or Brock Lesnar fending off half the field in Royal Rumble 2020. Instead, the WWE passed over dramatic surprises and nostalgia in favor of focusing on its future. The first surprise entrant in the Royal Rumble was Edge, who entered at No. 24. Legacy stars like Lesnar, Edge and Lashley each spent minimal time in the Rumble in favor of highlighting rising stars like GUNTHER and Dominik Mysterio.

    Suspicious by his absence was Sami Zayn, who was a trendy pick to win the Royal Rumble match. During the pre-show, Roman Reigns demanded Zayn stay by his side the entire night.

    Headed into the 2023 WWE Royal Rumble, fan speculation was centered around two favorites—Cody Rhodes and Sami Zayn. Zayn and Rhodes seemed to have equal chances to win the Royal Rumble, but for two entirely different reasons. Rhodes is being propped up in the comeback role. WWE curiously announced Rhodes’ return for the Royal Rumble weeks in advance.

    Replicating Triple H’s 2002 comeback vignettes, scored by Creed’s “My Sacrifice,” Rhodes was built up as the most prized return of the Triple H Era. As a result, the oddsmakers gave Rhodes a slight edge with 1/1 odds compared to 3/2 odds for Sami Zayn. In fact, Zayn’s odds are impressive considering he was not even announced for the Royal Rumble. Rather, Zayn took the scenic route to the top of the sportsbook through his Emmy-worthy performance as The Bloodline’s lovable fish-out-of-water and Honorary Uce.

    As Sami continued his rise as an unlikely Royal Rumble favorite, around the same time Cody Rhodes was set for a well-produced heroes welcome, fans began developing Twitter PTSD. In fact, some fans prepared for WWE’s fickle fanbase to turn on Rhodes in favor of Zayn. This very issue had gained so much steam, Zayn addressed it himself in a recent interview with Ariel Helwani (h/t WrestleZone).

    “I don’t know if that’s true or not,” Zayn said about the possibility of fans turning on Rhodes.

    “I don’t know that in the fans’ minds, maybe me and you are looking at a certain point a certain way because we’re kind of like diehards, but I think there’s a lot of casual fans that are just kind of along for the ride. And I don’t think the fans are kind of where they were five, six years ago, where they kind of would like revolt. And were like, ‘No! Daniel Bryan is the guy. You’re trying to give us Batista? No! We’ll force you!’”

    “Whether it’s Cody, whether it’s anybody, it could be anybody,” Zayn continued.

    “If it’s not done right, it could kind of hurt that person. But you know, we work with a lot of people who know how to do things right. So if I’m not the guy, and genuinely as of this exact conversation, one day before the Royal Rumble, I have no idea what the plan is; I have nothing. I don’t know; it just doesn’t feel that way.”

    Contrary to social media paranoia, the honeymoon period between Cody Rhodes and WWE fans is alive and well. Fans cheered Rhodes from the moment his music hit and stayed with him throughout the climactic final moments of the Royal Rumble match. There’s been far more fan allegiance to WWE following the arrival of AEW. WrestleMania season revolts, like in 2014 with Daniel Bryan or in 2019 with Kofi Kingston and Becky Lynch, are far less likely. With Triple H in charge (for now), fans are wise to trust in the process on the road to WrestleMania 39.

    How to Watch and Start Times

    On Saturday at the Royal Rumble we find out who will be in the main event of WrestleMania.

    WWE's Royal Rumble is on Saturday, something that's easy to forget amid Vince McMahon's tumultuous return to WWE. The second biggest pro wrestling show of the year, the Royal Rumble determines who will main event the biggest show of the year, WrestleMania.

    Reigns will be defending his WWE Universal Championship titles against Kevin Owens. It's the pair's third title match at the Royal Rumble: They first clashed in 2017, when Owens retained his Universal Championship, and then again in 2021 in the infancy of Reigns' historic title run. It should be a fun match.

    Cody Rhodes is winning: Cody Rhodes' WWE Championship saga began after his return at last year's WrestleMania, when in a promo he declared his reason for leaving AEW was to fulfill his destiny, win the title and make his late father, Dusty Rhodes, proud. The main person standing in his way wasn't WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, but Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. The favorites to win the Rumble and go on to face Reigns are Rhodes and Rock. My money's on Rhodes.

    Russell Westbrook snaps at reporter after Lakers loss

    Coming off the worst season of his NBA career, Russell Westbrook has actually garnered some media praise this year as he relishes his role off the bench. But Tuesday night, Westbrook proved once again that he won’t tolerate any negative press.

    As the Lakers attempted to mount a fourth quarter comeback against the Clippers, they quickly faltered when Westbrook’s errant pass to Dennis Schroder led to a 3-point play for Kawhi Leonard. After the turnover, Westbrook and Schroder got into a bit of a verbal altercation on the bench. The Lakers ultimately lost to the Clippers 133-115 despite 46 points from LeBron James. During his postgame press conference, Westbrook responded furiously when a reporter asked about the errant pass to Schroder.

    But Westbrook couldn’t get passed the term “cross-up” and continued to ask the reporter to offer his analysis of the play.

    The reporter tried again, “Did you guys get crossed up on that play?” he asked.

    “Okay what went wrong on that inbounds play?” the reporter asked.

    “It was a turnover,” Westbrook bluntly answered.

    This wasn’t the first time Westbrook lashed out at a Lakers reporter, having been embroiled in some battles with the media last year. Tuesday night, Westbrook again proved that when the going gets tough, he’s not great at answering questions.

    “The way you explain it, you need to be around more often,” Westbrook said, welcoming the kind praise from a reporter.

    Westbrook has received some unjust criticism in recent years, headed by Skip Bayless attempting to lead the “Westrbick” charge. But Westbrook also deserves some blame after the Lakers’ attempt at building a Big 3 has turned into an epic fail, and fielding a question about a crucial fourth quarter turnover should be well within bounds.

    The archival footage and interviews should push this one over the top.

    The Pac-12 reportedly thought Comcast was underpaying at first.

    "I'm not saying anybody was right or wrong, but I'm saying, as a guy who's on television, I could never get into it with the players"

    AEW will proceed with a tribute match to honor the late Jay Briscoe on their Wednesday episode of Dynamite from Lexington, Kentucky.

    Patrick Reed flipped a tee at Rory McIlroy after a spurned handshake, despite Reed serving Rory with papers on Christmas Eve.

    "I used the wrong word. I don’t know, it came to me. Stupid"

    Mauritius is the perfect jurisdiction to expand your business across Africa

    Órama Corporate Services (https://OramaCorporate.com/), one of the gold sponsors of the African Energy Week (AEW 2022), have relentlessly exhibited its vision for the second year in a row on “enabling ways to thrive businesses and grow successfully in Africa” at the annual conference that aimed at uniting African energy leaders, global investors, and executives.

    The AEW 2022 was a great opportunity for Órama to network with African energy leaders and to establish credible business relationships with prospects and potential clients that have shown interest in investing in Mauritius or taking advantage of the jurisdiction as a base to spread their wings across the globe.

    The Órama team is working assiduously to promote Mauritius as an enabling environment and a base for businesses to leverage on to grow and expand across Africa by supporting African business with incorporation processes and banking facilities especially during this era where the AfCFTA is in motion and  as the continent is determined to regain its influence within global markets, and provide its entrepreneurs, companies and investors with the opportunities to thrive and shape a prosperous future.

    To do so, the company offers an efficient and modern one-stop-shop for management services in Mauritius.

    Mauritius, with its white sand beaches and crystal-clear sea, is famously known for being a holiday destination, but the beautiful island nation has way more to offer than just tourism.

    The country is ranked top 13 in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Ranking report, and first on the list in Africa, making Mauritius the friendliest business destination and financial hub of Africa.

    In addition to having a robust financial regulatory system and some of the renowned banks and best banking facilities in Africa, the island has no foreign exchange controls.

    Plausible reforms have enabled Mauritius to be a fully compliant offshore jurisdiction and remains a credible and secure financial center of repute that has adopted international best practices in tax matters, regulatory practices, transparency, exchange of information and economic substance and an even safer environment for international investments.
