This Sunday is the Royal Rumble and four big matches are set for the PPV. This is the beginning of the Road to Wrestlemania and where the storylines and matches start to take shape for the grandest stage in WWE.
30-Man Royal Rumble Match
I love how only eight names have been revealed so far. Those names are Chris Jericho, Mick Foley, The Miz,R-Truth, Sheamus, Wade Barrett, Randy Orton, Santino Marella. I think it’s coming down Jericho, Foley, Barrett and Orton as the final four. The main focus has been on these four as well as Sheamus unless that’s what WWE wants you to believe. Don’t forget they made the stipulation that every WWE Superstar is eligible for the Royal Rumble. You could see both the World Champion and WWE Champion in the Rumble as well. I am going to say the winner of the Royal Rumble will be Wade Barrett because of how much heat he will get winning it in Orton’s hometown and how the WWE needs to have a new face hold the World Title. Barrett eliminates Orton to be the last man remaining.
John Cena vs. Kane
World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan vs. Big Show vs. Mark Henry (Triple Threat Steel Cage Match)
A lot of people are not happy about how Daniel Bryan is being used in his World Title reign. I think it’s brilliant and I believe he will be very sneaky and come out as still the World Heavyweight Champion. My prediction is that it will be Randy Orton vs. Wade Barrett vs. Daniel Bryan for the World Title at Wrestlemania 28.
WWE Champion CM Punk vs. Dolph Ziggler (Special Guest Referee John Laurinaitis)
This is a tricky one. I think Dolph Ziggler will win his first WWE Championship then drop it back to Punk at Elimination Chamber. Johnny Ace will screw CM Punk over and then be fired the next night on Raw. I have also heard rumors of HHH and Punk at Mania which could end up being played into in this match.
It’s time to Rumble, it’s time for the Royal Rumble. Tune in Sunday to find out how the Road to Wrestlemania begins.
