Something Interesting about Recent Royal Rumble Winners

I was talking with some friends about the Rumble and who we thought was going to walk out the winner. Well that got me thinking and I went online and looked up results for past Rumbles and I found something interesting. The past 4 Rumbles you have had the winner of the Rumble in a WWE title match the year before. Sure thats not always the case, as with Alberto Del Rio, but let me show you the facts.

In 2007, John Cena defended the WWE title against Umaga. The following year in 2008 he won the Rumble.

In 2008, Randy Orton defended the WWE title against Jeff Hardy. The following year in 2009 he won the Rumble.

In 2009, Edge defended the WWE title against Jeff Hardy. The following year in 2010 he won the Rumble.

Now here is the where it gets slightly tricky. Sheamus was in a WWE championship match in 2010 and in 2011 he didn't win the Rumble due to the fact of the WWE over pushing ADR, but the following year in 2011 he won the Rumble.

(i'm sure if i did more research, I could back it up even further than this)

Here is where it gets good. If we use the above system, we can almost guarantee the winner of the Rumble this year. I know people will call me crazy but the fact is backed up. I believe that CM Punk will walk out of the 2013 Royal Rumble with a WWE Title shot at Mania. Now sure I could be wrong, but I thought this would be an interesting thread to post and see other people's ideas on this whole thing.

Personally I am rooting for Dolph to run the gauntlet and win from number 1, but idk if that would happen. He was in a WWE title match with Punk last year, so who's to say he couldn't pull it off with the current system WWE has with booking Rumble winners lol.

But regardless, if it's Punk or it's Dolph, the winner will have been in a WWE Championship match the year prior to the Rumble win.

Re: Something Interesting about Recent Royal Rumble Winners

If Rock/Punk is on before the Rumble for whatever reason, then I think there's a big chance Punk loses to The Rock, but enters the Rumble and wins it. I think it will be the main event, but you never know. Interesting theory though.

Re: Something Interesting about Recent Royal Rumble Winners

Another interesting fact is that from 1999 to this year(14 Royal Rumble matches) there have been 14 different winners.I bet this will change this year.

Re: Something Interesting about Recent Royal Rumble Winners

If Rock V Brock is out of the question Punk winning the Rumble would be amazing.

Re: Something Interesting about Recent Royal Rumble Winners

If Punk/Rock is before the RR and Punk loses the title,there's a big possibility he joins the match.
But for what reason they would have Punk go again for the title if his 434 day reign is over?

Just because his long reign ends doesn't mean they couldn't keep him in the title picture. If he won the Rumble they could build up to Rock/Cena/Punk for the title maybe? It sure would be interesting if he won the Rumble.

I agree with that,but if they have a triple threat(Punk/Rock/Cena) in mind,there's no reason(imo) to stop Punk's reign at the Rumble and not at Mania,where he would make it with a 500+ days reign.
If Punk loses the title in 2 days and also be at WM triple threat,everybody knows that he's not going to win the title again.

Re: Something Interesting about Recent Royal Rumble Winners

Yes if they were going to have a triple threat, then you're right it would be stupid to take the belt off Punk before 'Mania. But if that scenario happened where Punk loses title to The Rock but enters and wins the Rumble, who else could he face at 'Mania?

Re: Something Interesting about Recent Royal Rumble Winners

Here's another statistic for you, since 2001, they've all been different people, no repeats. Which is one reason I still don't buy that John Cena is winning this.

What everyone really wants for Christmas:
