CM Punk enters the Rumble determined to earn the right to not have to defend his title at Wrestlemania against some random two-bit opponent. "I mean really, what if Justin Gabriel won the Royal Rumble? Would you really want to put him in the ring against me on the grandest stage of them all? Not only that, but it's completely unfair for me to have no input on who my opponent is at Wrestlemania, even though I could take any one of you so called 'superstars' in the back. I am going to win the Royal Rumble and head on the road to Wrestlemania and prove that none of you are worthy of getting in the ring with my greatness"
"I am the Devil himself, and all of you stupid mindless people fell for it"
It's happened but never after they announced the winner gets a title shot at WrestleMania. They had Chavo Guerrero enter as ECW Champion one year but the ECW title isn't a "real" world title, so that doesn't count.
I actually wouldn't be surprised if they did it with Ziggler this year. There's a Last Man Standing match at the Royal Rumble, a perfect opportunity to cash in, and his entry number is presumably locked already, because he won the beat the clock challenge. I don't expect them to be this clever but it COULD happen this year. I wouldn't bet on it though.
