How I'd book the 2013 Royal Rumble (Long Post)
This is a long post, read if you want to discuss with me. I spent a few hours thinking this up. Hope you like it.1: Daniel Bryan
The Royal Rumble is one of my favourite events in the WWE, if not my favourite. Its great to see all the new guys get a chance to prove themselves. I've been thinking about this for a few days now and thought I'd share (This is based on every 2 minutes):
2: Rey Mysterio
Rey and Bryan start things off with several blows and high-flying moves.
Bryan and Kane are still the tag champs and are still Team Hell No, as Rey is in the corner, they start to argue about who will eliminate him which ends in a brawl. Rey then has time to re-cooperate (No eliminations as of yet)
4. David Otunga
Otunga rushes in looking fresh as he picks Bryan as his target, as Kane is making his way back up from a kick from Bryan, as Otunga is unleashing on Bryan, Kane attacks him and eliminates him, Bryan and Kane then start fighting again as Rey gets back up and gets involved.
First elimination: Otunga From Entrance: (32 Seconds) In match time: (4:32)
5. Evan Bourne (Return)
Bryan, Kane and Rey are still in the ring as Bourne rushes in looking extremely fresh. Bourne lasts until the next entrant. (Highflying moves expected from Bourne)
6. Justin Gabriel
As Justin Gabriel enters, all men are slugging it out in the ring. (Spot Moment: As Kane is laid in the center of the ring, Gabriel raises his arm to the crowd as they pop and performs a 450 Splash)
7. The Great Khali (I had to include him)
All the men turn their attention to Khali as he enters the ring, he chops most of them down and eliminates Gabriel.
Second elimination: Gabriel From Entrance: (2:16) In match time: (10:16)
Seconds after this Kane eliminates Khali from behind, which gains a pop from the crowd.
Third elimination: Khali From Entrance: (21 Seconds) In match time: (10:21)
Bourne, Mysterio, Bryan and Kane remain in the ring.
8. Santino Marella
Bourne and Mysterio are slugging it out, as well as Kane and Bryan (During the match they sometimes shout "I'm the Royal Rumble champion!"). Santino enters as his goofy self as he stands in the ring away from the action, the men in the ring soon turn their attention to Santino as well.
9. Wade Barrett
Wade comes in looking extremely fresh and he quickly eliminates Mysterio and Santino. Before Santino is eliminated he does have a cobra moment.
Fourth Elimination: Mysterio From Entrance: (14:16) In match time: (14:16)
Fifth Elimination: Santino From Entrance: (2:28) In match time: (14:28)
Wade, Bourne, Kane and Bryan are left in the ring. Wade turns his attention to Kane (Wanting to get the big guy out) and Bourne goes for Bryan.
Epico comes out and manages to last until the next entrant.
11. Kofi Kingston
Kofi enters in hot fire fashion and quickly eliminates Epico, he then turns his attention to Barrett who he had a feud with at TLC.
Sixth Elimination: Epico From Entrance: (2:11) In match time: (18:11)
12. Booker T (Special Entrance)
I enjoyed Booker in the Rumble last time so decided to include him, Booker lasts until the next couple of entrants.
13. Damien Sandow
Damien walks out with a mic, saying he's going to win the Rumble and therfore free the WWE of the unwashed masses. He then enters the ring agressively.
14. Cody Rhodes
Cody luckily enters after him and the two shake hands in the ring and turn their attention to Kane and Bryan. Kane and Bryan at this point decide to try and actually work as a team in the rumble. Rhodes targets Bryan as Sandow targets Kane.
During this, Rhodes eliminates Booker after Booker tries to get revenge on Rhodes because of what happened at the last rumble, he then returns to Bryan. (Before this Booker did a spinaroonie and had a moment in the rumble)
Sixth Elimination: Booker T From Entrance: (4:41) In match time: (24:41)
15. Big Show
Big Show enters with rage. He lost the title after Dolph cashed in at TLC. (Dolph has a match earlier in the event defending his title against Sheamus somehow (Number one contender match on RAW?), so he doesn't appear in the rumble). Big Show eliminates Evan Bourne.
Seventh Elimination: Evan Bourne From Entrance: (20:21) In match time: (26:21)
Before the next entrant, Sandow & Rhodes eliminate Kane before Bryan can help him.
Eigth Elimination: Kane From Entrance: (25:13) In match time: (27:13)
16. Mick Foley (Special Entrance)
Foley uses the Socko on Show and has a few moments, but is soon eliminated by Rhodes, much to the displeasure of the crowd (Deja-vu).

29. Randy Orton

Barrett, Ambrose and Ryback look at eachother, a brawl breaks out and Ryback manages to eliminate Ambrose.
26th Elimination (Ambrose eliminated by Ryback.): From Entrance: (16:53) In match time: (58:53)
Outside of the ring Ambrose can be heard shouting "Injustice.", Reigns and Rollins both return out who were eliminated by Ryback, they surround the ring as Barrett wonders what is going on. They step in the ring Nexus style and beat Ryback down, they then set him up for the move and launch him out of the ring, cheating Ryback out of a title opportunity at WreslteMania. Barrett wins the Rumble as it ends on controversy as Barrett celebrates. 'The Shield' quickly flee from the scene and Ryback.
Overall rumble reaches about 60 Minutes.
So, I thought through it thoroughly and I can definitely vision something like this happening, It'd also be nice to see Barrett win the rumble.
