>The 2009 Royal Rumble Preview<

For the first time in history, the WWE Championship will be defended in the Royal Rumble match. That responsibility falls in the hands of Triple H who will have to fight off 29 other men in order to retain his title, but whoever it is who emerges victorious and walks out with the WWE title will go onto the 25th anniversary of WrestleMania at Wembley Stadium in London, England to defend the title. For only the second time ever we will see 30 men battle it out for the WWE title in the Royal Rumble match. Can The Game overcome the massive odds and retain his title, but if not, just who will leave the Rumble as the WWE Champion?

There was a huge amount of intensity, bitterness & anger going into the first match between these two at Night of Champions but it's going to be off the scale when John Cena & CM Punk meet at the Royal Rumble in their rematch for the now vacant World Heavyweight Championship. Add in Stephanie McMahon's controversial role in Punk losing the title and Cena subsequently forfeiting the title due to the part she played, you've now got two men even hungrier to ensure victory where the undisputed World Champion will be crowned. With No Holds Barred and a winner guaranteed it's going to be one explosive match to say the very least.

Until the last few weeks, Matt Sydal has been on a non-stop roll that's gone on for almost eight months since winning the King of the Ring last May. He went onto win the United States title at SummerSlam and only last month was voted the Breakthrough Star of 2008. He has however run into another superstar who is looking to make a breakthrough of his own in Dolph Ziggler, and he too has put together a streak of victories, including back-to-back non-title victories over Sydal in consecutive weeks, and he'll be looking to make it three at the Royal Rumble to become the new United States Champion. Sydal's always risen to the challenge when needed and he'll have to again at the Rumble if he wants to keep his title against the determined Ziggler.

We've seen three teams hold Smackdown's tag team titles in four weeks, and two of them will meet at the Royal Rumble when The Empire take advantage of their rematch clause, looking to gain retribution against the resurgent duo of Paul London & Brian Kendrick. Their reunion has left everyone on Smackdown stunned, especially The Empire. Wade Barrett & Drew McIntyre have reason to feel hard done by at losing the titles thanks to a distraction from the team they beat at Night of Champions, Paul Burchill & TJ Wilson, who also felt hard done by at the time, and still do. Regardless of that it's down to the new champions & The Empire to battle it out with everyone else on the roster barred from ringside.

These two brothers had enough to fight for before they found out the winner would be going onto the Royal Rumble match for a shot at the WWE Championship, but it will be the sibling rivalry that takes precedence when Kofi Kingston locks horns with the brother he's come face-to-face with years after walking out on his family to fulfil his dream of being a WWE superstar. Kofi really could live the dream by advancing to the Rumble match and winning the WWE title, only he has to go through his brother to do it. Will he be able to beat the brother who doesn't wish share to the same surname as him or will it be Jay Lethal who gets some long overdue revenge at his brother's expense?

Just over a week ago these two teams were set to meet on Raw after difficulties between them in previous weeks, only The Miz & Zack Ryder attacked their opponents backstage just moments before the scheduled match. Miz & Ryder said they were hoping to meet John Morrison & Justin Gabriel last night, and regardless of whether they meant it or not, Gabriel wasn't cleared to compete due to the concussion he suffered last week in the attack. Eric Bischoff then took them by surprise when he announced that not only would The Miz take on Morrison there & then but the two teams will meet this at the Royal Rumble. It was The Miz who got up last night though thanks to an assist from Ryder. Will they win together at the Rumble or will Morrison & Gabriel get some revenge?
