Re: Official Royal Rumble Match Discussion Thread
I agree with you on the Rumble having more of a buzz to it this year. I always enjoy the Rumble matches, but 2012's felt very flat to me. There was a severe lack of star power in that one. And perhaps it was less exciting because we all knew that Cena/Rock was going to be the main event at WrestleMania, anyway. I also think that the ultimate fates of the previous years' winners (ADR in 2011, Edge in 2010, Orton in 2009 and Cena in 2008) has done a lot to kill the excitement of winning the Rumble. Just doesn't seem to have the same importance that it used to.
Anyway, I would love to see the likes of Lesnar, Undertaker and Triple H show up, but I just don't want to get my hopes up because I just can't see it happening. I would love to be wrong, though. And I do think that The Shield should be in. That would be good for them. Aside from that, I do think that Christian and Henry are due back, along with Jack Swagger. Just think it would be a good time to bring those guys back into the mix.
