The Steel Cage match has a reputation for being one of the more brutal matches in all of professional wrestling. At the 2012 Royal Rumble, Daniel Bryan retained his World Heavyweight Championship in a Steel Cage match in the opening bout of the pay-per-view.

All in all, this match served to be a solid opening to one of WWE’s biggest PPVs of the year. I believe that the match could have been just as good without the Steel Cage element. Even more so, a gimmick match like this seems unnecessary on this show simply because the show is sold by the Royal Rumble while the rest of the card is icing on the cake.
