Re: Royal Rumble Winner?
I think there's really only 3 possible answers and I'll rank them in the likelihood I think they could happen:
Punk has to be the odds on favorite because he's drawn (at least to an acceptable degree) in the past, has big match experience, and the WWE has the feeling he's only going to be around for a short time longer. With his straight edge lifestyle, high risk style, and recent physical ailments, Punk could be out of WWE in 2 years. He's paid a lot of dues in the WWE and is credible to the casual fans.
Reigns is if the WWE pulls the trigger on his push at this early stage. I think we all see he is going to get the ball from WWE for a long time. If they really want to pull a big surprise and push him to the stars right away, this works. Reigns would be helped by the fact that there will be so many special attraction matches at Wrestlemania so if he totally flops, the overall numbers will still be good. Maximum exposure for a future star with the lowest amount of risk.
Bryan deserves it and the fans certainly back him. I just don't see him getting his just due quite yet.
Is it bright where you are? Have the people changed?
