Default The title shot and unpredictability of the Rumble

Saw this posted somewhere and decided it was so ludicrous it needed to be shared...and then I thought there might be some people who agree with this...I doubt it.

Do you think the rumble would be better if they didn't have the title shot on the line? I was thinking before they awarded the winner a title shot the rumble was unpredictable but now with that you kind of know who gonna win.

So let's pose this question to see if anyone does agree with it: Do you think the title match makes the royal rumble more predictable?

I think it makes it more predictable, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, as long as the story is good enough for the viewer to actually give a shit. For example, we knew that Benoit would win after Heyman's power play against him, guaranteeing he wouldn't have a title shot, and so on. We didn't care that we knew he would win, because we actually gave a shit about the story.

It's only a problem when the viewer looks at it and goes "This'll lead to Cena and Rock 2.. Meh.." because we simply don't care.

The problem with saying the winner shouldn't get a title shot simply gives the wrestlers no real purpose to want to be in the match. Kayfabe-wise, Kofi believes he can win the match and go to Wrestlemania, giving him purpose to be in the match. Without that, what's his motivation?
