It was only fitting, perhaps, that the road to Cena’s big win began with the very Superstar to whom the Cenation leader made his now-prescient New Year’s toast, as Dolph Ziggler chose to enter the over-the-top-rope challenge at No. 1. But it was the emergence of the No. 2 entrant just 90 seconds later that sent the WWE Universe in Phoenix into a frenzy. When the familiar strands of “Break the Walls Down” blared and the lights went out, Chris Jericho made his shocking return to WWE.

With the crowd still on its feet and the entire mood of the night suddenly and irrevocably altered, the two Superstars circled each other inside the ring, and a rivalry that came to a head at SummerSlam was quickly renewed.

Jericho and Ziggler furiously traded blows until the ring filled up with other entering Superstars. As Ziggler, Jericho, Cody Rhodes and Kofi Kingston battled it out, Santino Marella made his way to the ring and looked for a moment to have eliminated everyone else in the ring. But all of the rumblers landed on the apron, not the floor. Despite striking Kofi with The Cobra, Santino would be the first elimination of the night, tossed over the ropes by Rhodes.

When the ring inevitably filled with competitors, Ziggler and Jericho fought as the match dictated, battling whomever stood in their way. Still, they both seemingly drifted back towards one another, always looking to settle their long-standing score.

Like Shawn Michaels and Rey Mysterio before him, “The Showoff” may have drawn an unlucky number, but with an abundance of talent on his side, Ziggler looked to make the best of a badly dealt hand, despite the fact that he seemingly found himself teetering on the ring apron constantly over the course of the melee.

One of the time-honored traditions that makes the Royal Rumble Match so unique is the guessing game that takes place in living rooms of WWE Universe members all over the world — which past Superstars will make their one-night return to enter the melee?

This year was certainly no different, as a number of beloved Superstars arrived back on the scene.

Re: Official Royal Rumble Match Discussion Thread

Star Power for this Rumble looks great so far, compared to last year's jobbers Rumble.

So true. The best part of last year's rumble was Sheamus and Jericho's epic one on one. That had me on edge. But the whole everyone from commentary coming up and Show being number 30...

This is just really packed. Shield and Ryback possibly being in it as well, and maybe Lesnar, highly unlikely thou.

Would be crazy if someone we least expected ended up winning, but I think Vince has his block lined up.

Who eliminates Cena?

If Cena isn't winning the damn thing, then doesn't it have to be Dolph or Big E who knocks the rated G super C over the ropes?

Big E Langston eliminating Cena would make him look strong as hell, if he isn't fed to Ryback too soon. And I would simply mark the fuck out if it was Dolph who got the crucial elimination.

Re: Official Royal Rumble Match Discussion Thread

The winner needs to challenge for the WWE Championship IMO, its been too long since the Rumble has become the background feud for WrestleMania.
