If cena wins this year, it'll make the rumble look huge.... Hate to say it.

Top 10 all time favorites:

Stone Cold Steve Austin
The Undertaker
Shawn Michaels
Chris Jericho
Brock Lesnar
Kurt Angle
HHH
Edge
CM Punk
Kane (98-04)

Re: Is the Royal Rumble match not as important this year?

Rock V Punk will get the buys, so they've put little effort into the Rumble, lazy booking as per.

Re: Anyone else have a problem with WWE NOT building the Rumble match?

Royal Rumble is my favorite PPV, after RR Wrestlemania is 2nd favorite.

Are you ready? #undisputed

Re: Anyone else have a problem with WWE NOT building the Rumble match?

It's funny, not because they build up has been horrible, but because the CM Punk v Rock feud has been built up better, and in only the last 10 - 15 minutes of 2 episodes. There is so much going on right now actually; Shield, CM Punk/Rock, the rumble, the WHC, tag teams, the IC title, the US title; it's probably not being built up because Cena is going to win and they don't care to build it.

Re: Anyone else have a problem with WWE NOT building the Rumble match?

My optimistic theory:

The last two years they have built the Royal Rumble match up so much. 2011 being the 40-man rumble and 2012 Royal Rumble Match was basically the main event of the PPV.

By not putting a ton of emphasis on it this year, maybe they are trying to keep everyone's expectations lower by making the match an afterthought with Rock vs. Punk taking the spotlight. By keeping expectations down, it has a better chance of being perceived as a better Rumble than year's past.

Why so little hype?

I was just wondering why this year's Royal Rumble hasn't been more hyped?

They barely mention the Royal Rumble on either Raw or Smackdown! We haven't had qualifying matches. This year everyone is eligable to enter. But what about all the rest above 30 superstars? I mean why are some in and others not?

I am just sitting here with a feeling that the Rumble match isn't important to the superstars because they haven't talked more about the Rumble than they have. It is like the Intercontinental Title. Noone is talking about taking the belt. Yet, when someone challenges for the title then it seems illogical.

I want to see qualifying matches. I want to see wrestlers draw their numbers. You don't have to reveal which number they draw, it is enough to see their expressions. I remember the 1989 annual Rumble where Ax and Smash drew their numbers. Ax said: "It looks like I'm in for a long nighht", which Smash replied: "Me too". It turned out they have pulled the number 1 and 2 spots, which meant they would have to face each other.

I do also remember another classic moment. I don't remember the year. But the moment was when Hunter Hearst Helmsley challenged Duke "the Dumbster" Droese for the number 1 and number 30 spots. Hunter Hearst Helmsley cheated for the win, which was later overruled. Hunter Hearst Helmsley then had to enter as the number 1 entry. But this year you have got nothing at all to hype the Rumble match.

Re: Anyone else have a problem with WWE NOT building the Rumble match?

That's an odd strategy. Build up a PPV by not building up its signature attraction hoping to shock us. Weird.

But whatever the case, whether they built it up or not, I am at least 90% sure that Cena is going to win so my hopes are pretty low.

Re: Anyone else have a problem with WWE NOT building the Rumble match?

You kidding, we had that epic promo by Cena which built it up.............

Your opinions don't matter. I am right and everyone one not agreeing with me is a troll, or an idiot.

(Typical poster thought process)
