Re: I figured who is winning the Royal Rumble next year?

I've been predicting this since they first hinted at Rock/Cena II tbh. I'll actually be surprised if it doesn't happen you know.

How many gunshot wounds does it take to buy a near-fall?

Re: I figured who is winning the Royal Rumble next year?

Maybe you should re-figure it out because Ryback is winning.

Cena is not winning the damn Rumble, it's astonishing how people fail to see the chain of events that that creates. That forces Rock to defend the title in an Elimination Chamber. Not only is the Elimination Chamber PPV a B level PPV, it's also dangerous, especially for a guy who isn't a normal wrestler, a guy who tore his hamstring the last time he wrestled. There isn't a CHANCE of Rock wrestling on this PPV, it's beneath him, and they need to guarantee his safety for the next PPV, which is what they generate most of their yearly revenue from, and most of that which comes from him wrestling.

So, Rock sits this PPV out, which means, you need a #1 contenders Elimination Chamber. There can't BE a #1 contenders Elimination Chamber if Cena is the #1 contender already. The only option they have is for the Royal Rumble winner to go for the SmackDown title, and Ryback is a SmackDown wrestler anyway, so that main event sets itself up perfectly, and then you have Cena win the #1 contenders Elimination Chamber for the Raw title match.

On top of that, they just don't do repeat Rumble winners. They just.....don't. The last one was in 2001, it's not gonna happen for quite some time again, if ever.

They don't necessarily have to have 2 Elimination Chamber matches.

They can have Cena face Punk in some kind of Austin v Triple H esque end of the rivalry type match.

Storyline wise having Cena win the Rumble to face Rock at Mania is just the right way to book things instead of some clusterf***.

The Royal Rumble winner of 2012 will be... the greatest human to have ever grace this or any other universe in our lifetime.

I'll give you two guesses but in all honesty, you only need the one. y

PS It's not Dwayne.

Not really... You forget that there is 2 World Championships so even if Cena loses the Rumble, technically he can still face Rock at Wrestlemania they've done this plenty of times.

Seriously? He got a title shot just because. They can do 1 EC for the SD title and put Cena's Mania shot up for grabs on the Raw side of things to hold them over. I really don't think they'll give it that much thought. Rock wins the title, Cena wins the Rumble and they won't give a fuck what happens in the interim between their match.

The PPV is called Elimination Chamber. They have 2 every year, they're not going to take one away, ESPECIALLY the Raw one, the main one. What sense does it make to have a PPV called Elimination Chamber with a SmackDown Elimination Chamber match only?

No, it's not the right move either, the Rumble winner should be new, they should be skyrocketing someone off the momentum of a Rumble win. Cena has peaked in every way imaginable. Not to mention, the Royal Rumble winner has gone for the SmackDown storyline pretty much every year since 2004, with the exception of 2009 where Orton faced Triple H. Other than that, every year they go to the SmackDown story.

I'm telling you, Ryback is winning. The Rumble winner is not complicated, it's down to one or two people every year. I figured out Sheamus was winning the Rumble shortly after he turned face. Jericho and his cryptic end of the world promos kinda put a bit of doubt into that, especially considering he was going to face Punk, but low and behold, it happened, just like they had been setting up. The only way Ryback doesn't win the Rumble is if he gets injured again, or he's already the champion.

Why would FIVE other people get a shot at Cena's WrestleMania shot. That's insanity. That's the type of thing you do for a personal feud like Rey vs Orton, not between 6 people, let alone on a PPV called Elimination Chamber. Raw is going to have an Elimination Chamber, they're not going to have the name of the PPV represented by SMACKDOWN.

Cena's not winning the Rumble, I'm telling you. They're setting up Ryback to go in there and kill everyone. Cena is already made anyway, and Vince is so far up Ryan Reeves ass he can see into his stomach.

Well Ryback struggled to pick up Paul Heyman and seeing as how most of the wrestlers are heavier than him, he might struggle. Unless Ryback comes in #30 and it's just him and Rey Mysterio

Re: I figured who is winning the Royal Rumble next year?

Yeah Ryback and Cena have to be favourites but if Ryback actually wins, things may get interesting. Punk as a result may factor into the equation. And tbh they could go a lot of ways with the WHC so I'm not going to go with anyone just yet.
