The Rock or Cody Rhodes or Sami Zayn. Who will win 2023 Royal Rumble?

1649 51
I believe these guys are top 3 favourites to win this year's Royal Rumble

Rock - biggest money match since Rock vs Cena

Cody Rhodes - Obviously his storyline is to win world title

Sami Zayn - Bloodline storyline

Or do you think other guy has a chance

Oh Jesus the fact that anybody believes that Sami Zayn or Cody Rhodes have any legitimate chance of winning shows how delusional some people are. Zayn gets his shot at Reigns at Elimination Chamber, then teams up with Kevin Owens to dethrone the Usos. Cody Rhodes fights Seth Rollins for the vacant WWE Championship after Reigns gets stripped of it, Rock wins the Rumble and fights Reigns at Mania for the Universal Championship.

That's how it's going to go, doesn't matter if you like it, that's the current plan.
Dwayne hasn’t confirmed his return

If Cody was winning they would have kept him as a surprise, them announcing him early shows they have bigger plans.
Not true at all.

Nothing about winning a rumble means you have to he a surprise

They WANT people to tune in to the rumble and belive it or not plenty of people don't buy/watch base on rumour alone. Telling people will draw in the group who will never watch just on the CHANCE of a return

I'm starting to think that Cody winning the rumble will hurt him since the fans are expecting for Sami to win this whether they're right or not is irrelevant.

As much as over Sami is right now he's not credible enough to headline WM against Roman. He's just not that guy. He would be a perfect filler feud for the road to WM like in EC for example but that's it.

Answer is The Rock for storyline purpose and it's now or never.
Bold of you to assume they wouldn't have Sami win the Rumble to further the Bloodline story, and then lose to Reigns at Mania.

If you think about it, that gives them the perfect excuse to have Reigns retain the title again. I mean, it's been all about the Bloodline in the past 2.5 years now, having Cody win the Rumble shifts the core of the narrative. Zayn or the Rock would further the storyline, albeit in very different ways.

It shows a major weakness in (HHH’s) WWE’s booking. They really only know how to build dominant champions that never lose. Roman has gone through basically everyone and they haven’t built up any quality faces. They’re already reverting back to a feud that’s already happened in this reign, with KO, although this does fit the current narrative.

They’ve built Lashley the best as a face, but it’s apparent he’s facing Brock at Mania. Rollins has jobbed so much, he’s not there. AJ has basically been an afterthought for the last 3+ years. Can’t go back to Brock, Edge, or Drew again. Sheamus screams B level ppv. So it leaves us with a returning old head. A returning Cody, who probably benefited by being out for awhile, because the booking wasn’t able to cool him down. Or Zayn, who absolutely fits the storyline, but it doesn’t feel like a WM Main Event.

They’ve done a horrible job of building faces.
