The Royal Rumble last night was an absolute travesty, and the WWE Universe has reacted accordingly in the aftermath of the massive letdown that was one of the company's biggest Pay-Per-Views of the year.

Awful, Awful PPV

The boos were deafening as crowd favorite Daniel Bryan was chucked out of the ring with all the dignity of low card fighters such a Zack Ryder, Adam Rose and Titus O'Neil.

That moment incensed the 17,000 strong crowd at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia who would go on to boo absolutely everybody else who entered the ring, with the jeers getting even more vicious when it became so likely that Roman Reigns was going to win.

Not even The Rock could save Roman Reigns from the boo boys and WWE fans all over the world have protested the disgrace that was the Royal Rumble in an incredible way. 

Network Crash

According to a report from the Wrestling Inc, the WWE Network's cancellation page actually crashed last night due to the hundreds and thousands of outraged fans who decided to completely terminate their subscription to the WWE Network as a protest to Vince McMahon about the quality of the show.

Other reports have stated that fans who tried to cancel via phone were rebuffed when they were told that WWE staff couldn't cope with the amount of customers trying to terminate the service. 


On top of this, things would get even worse for McMahon and the rest of the WWE bigwigs as the above hashtag, #CancelWWE, has been the top trending subject Worldwide on Twitter ever since the Royal ended.

I can't wait to hear McMahon excuses and reasonings for scripting the Rumble the way it was, that is if anyone does come out to discuss the chorus boos Sunday's winner received. I won't be holding out much hope in all honesty.
