Re: Who will be the 2013 Royal Rumble winner?
Surprised Ryback's such a big favourte on the poll. I don't see him winning the rumble to face Punk at Mania. If they were going with that it would be senseless to have booked Ryback vs Punk three times(including the match on 7th on Raw) in just over three months. I think on that RAW the Shield will fully align themselves with Punk in that match. Ryback's got plenty of mileage left with them if it is booked right.
For me, the main event of mania will be Cena vs Rock vs Punk for the WWE title and due to that I think Cena, as much as he does not need the win, will win the rumble to get his shot at whoever the champion will be. I think Rock will win at the Rumble and Punk will be part of that match and that's a big main event.
Ryback's not a bad choice if he is going after World Heavyweight title but then Bryan or Orton are more likely opponents for Ziggler or Show at mania IMO.
Difficult to predict for sure but I just don't see Ryback winning the rumble. Other than Cena, it's anyone's guess.
