Re: Official Royal Rumble Match Discussion Thread
John Cena is coming off the worst year of his life in his career storyline wise. If that's not a build up to winning the Rumble, I don't know what is. He hasn't been WWE Champion for 15 months, he lost to the Rock is what he considered to be the biggest match of his life, and he got his ass kicked by Lesnar. I'll say this right now:
Punk vs. Rock will close the show. Cena will win the Rumble earlier in the night. Rock beats Punk setting Punk free to have his scheduled match with the Undertaker at Mania. The show ends with a Cena/Rock staredown, implying we're getting Cena/Rock II. It's a foregone conclusion we're getting Cena/Rock II for the title at Mania. The ONLY way that match makes sense is Rock winning the title and Cena winning the Rumble.
So, here's what your WrestleMania card is going to look like:
Cena vs. Rock II for the title
Punk vs. Undertaker for the Streak
Lesnar vs. Triple H II in some sort of gimmick match for Triple H to get revenge
Sheamus vs. Randy Orton for the World Heavyweight Title
Ryback vs. Big Show to put over Ryback
Look at me dead in the face and tell me that's not where WWE is heading right now. It's simple, it's logical, and more importantly, it's a card that makes sense they would book.
