* BrokenBase, [[ContestedSequel Contested Royal Rumble]]: 2014 ended with a floodgate of resentment against the {{WWE}} over the apparent shafting of DanielBryan in the Rumble, alongside a lackluster performance of the rest of the other matches, and {{Batista}} winning the event for a second time. To put this into perspective, Bryan's match against [[TheWyattFamily Bray Wyatt]] (which the former lost) was largely declared "Match of the Night". Although it didn't rule him out on being excluded from the Royal Rumble, as the number of entrants appeared and Bryan became a no-show, other superstars (like fan favorite and perpetual-{{Face}} ReyMysterio) were met with boos when they appeared...yes, '''BOOS'''; no other Royal Rumble in its 20+ year history ended with hisses and jeers from the audience, be it {{Smark}}s or not.
** As if that wasn't enough, when the event went off the air, Batista starts mocking Bryan and [[FlippingTheBird flips off the crowd]].
** Even MickFoley would take to {{Twitter}} to criticize WWE management:
--> "Does WWE actually [[TakeThatAudience hate their own audience]]? I've never been so disgusted with a PPV."
