Re: So... Wrestlemania 33 ME... Cena Vs Taker?
Yeah, it's been obvious Cena/Taker was happening as soon as Cena/Styles was announced for the Royal Rumble. This isn't unexpected. No, Cena isn't turning heel to beat a guy who isn't even 1/10th as popular as he is. It's also pretty obvious Taker will be the one who eliminates Strowman. I've been saying this for a week now, and this Raw made that very obvious. Strowman needs protecting and Taker is the easy candidate to eliminate him without hurting his monster image due to his kayfabe status.
The promo from Taker basically points to him as the winner of the Royal Rumble. The only chance of him not winning is Finn Balor, but considering the situation surrounding the Universal title and Reigns, that's seeming less likely.
So you can book it now. It's either Taker or Balor, with the odds favoring Taker.
If, and only if, by some miracle Reigns becomes Universal champion, despite the current booking screaming he's not winning, does Balor get better odds at winning the Royal Rumble than Taker.
