I wouldn't be shocked to see Ryback win the Rumble, have Ziggler cash in the MITB at the 20th Anniversary show for RAW or something, and build up to Ryback/Ziggler for WM29. Getting Ryback away from Punk/Cena/Rock and putting him with a guy that works well with Ryback's style, I think, would be ideal. Ryback can build up the stamina required for a main event push, which he can't really do if he's main eventing Raw. No 18 second squash or anything for Ziggler, but I think this will also allow Ziggler to switch his focus onto the WWE Championship Title, maybe working ith Cena again.

For surprise entrants, I wouldn't be shocked if Lesnar comes in at 30. I'd also like to see Christian, Mark Henry, and maybe a guy like MVP as returning entrants. Also, I'd like to see the New Age Outlaws back too. I think putting them with Rhodes Scholars provides a natural feud that could put over Sandow/Rhodes in a big way, like at WM29.

I don't understand Ryback's appeal. His ring work is below average at best, he can't cut a promo to save his life. He stinks.

I don't like Cena because I find his character is stale. However, Cena still has good skills. He can cut a promo when given the chance and he can have great matches.

If that's the case, make Sheamus beat the Big Slow for the title, and have Orton win the Rumble. That's the only way I would accept that match being booked.

Well it all depends on if the Rock vs Punk match is before or after the Rumble.
Initially, I had the crazy idea where Rumble is Main event as usual, And in the Punk vs Rock match, Shield attacks Rock then Punk wins. Then in the Royal Rumble number 30 is The Rock and he wins it.

In all honesty, I can see that happening because don't you guys think that the WWE would invest more than just one month into Punk vs Rock?...

I could see it going as:
Royal Rumble: Punk Wins and beats Rock due to Shield attacking Rock
Elimination Chamber: Comes down to Rock vs Punk who are the final 2 in the chamber, Punk wins again due to the Shield.
Then Finally: At Mania. Just 1v1. Mono y Mono. Clean match. Straight up Rock vs Punk. I would put my money on Rock winning.

But in regards to surprise entrants: Outlaws, Christian, Shelton,
Logically I think Taker/ Miz is gonna win the Rumble but that is just me.

We don't know that. He could find time. He sure blindsided me with all his upcoming unexpected appearances. He could find time to squeeze some more appearances after Wrestlemania. Never know.

how about Ryback enters at #1 and eliminates every other entrant as soon as they enter the ring so there is never more than two people in the ring at any one time and he can do his cheerleading while waiting for each guy to enter

I hope you're right about Brock. If that's the case, he needs a new contract right ?

Part of me wishes Kane and Daniel Bryan would be the final two in the Rumble with Bryan winning but I know that wouldn't happen.

Yes, I did expect him to be around for the buildup. I mean the Smackdowns, I didn't think he'd be around for a couple extra RAW's and EC. Those are bonuses.

Rock being there the next night after WM can only mean one thing. He won, or is setting up a match for the WM following. Or goes on the show and gets attacked and leads to something else. I don't think it's done after that RAW.

SD isn't his show. I know it's named cuz of him, but the dude hasn't been around to be able to call it his. And this is coming from possibly the biggest Rock homers out there.

I don't know why people are fighting the idea of Rock winning the title at the Rumble. It's probably going to happen. You don't cut that promo the night after WrestleMania 28 and give that news at Raw 1000 7 months in advance just for him to job or get screwed over. Putting the belt on him will sell more tickets, that's the bottom line. Chances are him having the belt will also make him want to open more dates for WWE to use him.

Ideally, a Punk loss at the Rumble and a rematch at WrestleMania where he beats The Rock will actually mean something for his career. I think giving Cena the rub isn't the right way to go as they need a second guy to be at his level to push him and Punk is the only guy close right now. Having him get the rub gives him something to lord over Cena that would actually mean something in terms of a legacy.

Given how they're advertising Cena as the first entrant into the Rumble I figure he'll win it.

Can definitely see Rock vs Cena 2.

At least you've come off of Taker/Punk. I do also want the triple threat but I want Punk to pin Rock for the title. I'm also not opposed to lifting Cena from that match and get his own program with someone like Brock, Taker, or HHH but you can't redo last year's main event.

Brock Lesnar is a true, legitimate threat to the streak. CM Punk is nowhere near that.

CM Punk and John Cena still have an unresolved issue that was never settled from back in October and now we have The Rock, who's getting a WWE Championship match and defeat the golden boy last year at WrestleMania. It writes itself.
As easy as it is to say it would be those three matchups, it shouldn't be done. Rock/Cena was built as once in a lifetime. Doing a rematch ruins that. Now, I wouldn't put it past WWE to be that stupid but certain things shouldn't be tainted and that is one of them. May not have been the best build, the best match, or whatever but it shouldn't be redone the very next year. The same goes for having HHH and Taker in matches for WrestleMania. End of an era and yet both guys are still there the next year? It makes it all hollow and WrestleMania builds shouldn't ever be seen as that.

Rock-Punk and Taker-Cena would be ideal to me as the building blocks for WrestleMania. I think a Lesnar-Ryback match at Mania is a strong possibility. The Shield's impact on it should be huge but whatever their match may be, will likely be underwhelming. Then you have whatever you want to do for the World title. Personally, I hope Show drops it at the Rumble, they split Hell No, give Bryan a WM rematch where he wins to give him his moment and a legitimate Mania match, then have Ziggler cash in. We'll see. The easy answer I actually don't think will happen.

I have no interest in seeing Lesnar/Ryback personally. I just don't think they'd mesh well at all. I also think Ryback is destined to challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship at this point if Orton or Sheamus doesn't take the championship off Show soon.
I think you can do Cena-Taker like HBK-Taker with the obvious exception being the career being on the line but you can get two good matches out of it. It has headliner potential for sure and I wouldn't disagree with saving it if they don't have it right for it. Maybe they can work it where a heel Sheamus is the opponent. That would be pretty legit.

I don't have interest in Ryback-Lesnar either but I don't think that Ryback is going to be lumped into a midcard mega-ten man tag match either. They'll need a program for him and he's their hot face right now, like it or not.

Injury prone? ********.

The ankle injury was 100% on Sheamus. Sheamus ****ed up and messed up his ankle. Yeah, sure he's had one serious injury recently, but he could have wrestled though it. He took the time off because WWE wasn't sure what they wanted to do with him.

There are lots of wrestlers who had bad injuries and stay relatively healthy later.

And who cares if he's 40. He's the best damn wrestler on the roster and would make Ziggler look like a million dollars. Not to mention, Christian has no problem (like Jericho) putting people over.

I agree that it's shaping up to very possibly be Rock/Cena, Taker/Punk and HHH/Lesnar...and while I realize that 2 out of 3 are rematches and nobody expects Punk to end the streak, I can safely say at this point that I would still really enjoy the evening just for the simple fact that something crazy MIGHT happen.

If Jericho didn't win the Rumble last year, Christian isn't winning.

And how was the ankle injury Sheamus's fault? At a house show, Christian slid under a clothesline, got up, punched him and then ended up clutching his leg.



Yes, 100% Sheamus's fault.
Okay, maybe not 100%.

But when it happened, it was said that Sheamus botched a move early in the match and landed on Christian's ankle.

If you watch that video, it looks like Christian is not putting full pressure on that foot (even when he comes off the ropes) and he just finished off his ankle doing that slide.

And I know Christian won't win the Rumble. Cena will. Unfortunately.

But I would love to see Christian get one more World Title.. and maybe a US title just to round it out.
