** In a case of TropesAreNotBad, low expectations for the 2016 Royal Rumble actually had fans genuinely surprised and elated when it turned out not to be the worst Rumble in history (except to Wrestling/BretHart). The highlight of the match was obviously Wrestling/AJStyles, but other parts were well-received as well. Some have even called it the best Rumble in the last five years.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: After the two events illustrated above, fans have lost so much faith in the main roster's booking that many admit they're watching the Royal Rumble just to see how the company screws it up this year. In fact, many believe that the crowd hijacking the show for a ''third time'' might not be enough to convince the company to change their plans and give the fans what they want, which, after ''Wrestling/SurvivorSeries 2015'', seems to be a ForegoneConclusion these days.

* BrokenBase: The 2016 Royal Rumble. The general perception seems to be that the Rumble itself was a great match: Wrestling/AJStyles]] debuting to a ''massive'' pop, Wrestling/DeanAmbrose in the final two and looking really strong, etc. What causes the divide is the winner. Some are okay with Wrestling/TripleH winning, since it follows logical storytelling; others are pissed, wanting a younger talent to win. Not helping things is that he eliminated [[EnsembleDarkhorse Ambrose]] to win. All of this being said, everyone agrees that it was ''much'' better than the last two Rumbles.
