OK w/Cena or RKO winning Rumble?
John Cena has been mostly out of the WWE Title picture for the past year, although many will complain that he's been taking the main event spot away from CM Punk. That's a debate for another thread. Randy Orton has been in the mid card most of the year, even putting Kane over at WM 28. Both Cena and Orton put their opponents over at the big event. Both have not held the WWE Championship/WHC since last fall. For years fans complained -- and rightfully so -- that the two were dominating (or hogging) the main event scene. That hasn't really been the case for the last year.
With that said are OK or accepting if John Cena or Randy Orton win the 2013 Royal Rumble? If we are to assume that Rock will defeat Punk then it would seem logical for John Cena to EARN his way to a title shot against The Rock. Winning a fatal 4 way to become #1 contender is not good enough. They can even play up the angle of Cena contemplating to not face The Rock in fear of losing again and instead going after the WHC (who could very well be Ziggler by that point via MITB).
As for Orton I could see him turning heel in the weeks ahead and going on a tear, winning the Royal Rumble. That could potentially set up a title bout at WM versus Sheamus or maybe a triple threat match against Ziggler and Sheamus. In this scenario I would have Ziggler cashing in on Sheamus at Elimination Chamber (Sheamus would defeat Show at TLC for the title) and then Sheamus would use his rematch clause at WM.
