The Royal Rumble: What or who to expect

One of the biggest sports spectacles is the Royal Rumble. The Royal Rumble, which is a 30 man over the top rope battle royal is the first stop on the road to Wrestlemania. The Royal Rumble will be taking place on January 27th and the winner of this event will punch their ticket to taking on the world champion of their choice at Wrestlemania 29.

The Rules of the Rumble are as follows: Two superstars will start in the ring and at a set interval a new superstar will enter the ring. You are eliminated by being thrown over the top rope and having both feet hit the ground. This match, which generally lasts an hour, ends when there is only one superstar left standing. Based on this logic, the superstar who draws number 1 has the least chance of winning while the superstar who draws number 30 is most likely to win.

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the Royal Rumble is the surprise returns. Every year many WWE legends and superstars returning from injury make an appearance in the Royal Rumble. With the Royal Rumble quickly approaching it is time I make some predictions as to who will show their face in the rumble.

Evan Bourne

Following two wellness violation suspensions and a motorcycle accident which broke his foot, the WWE has not seen Evan Bourne in a while. Injury permitting (he might still be rehabbing it come Rumble time) I expect Evan Bourne to make his long awaited return at the Royal Rumble.

Christian

Captian Charisma is also rehabbing an injury but he should be returning from that injury very soon now. There is no better way to return to the WWE than to make a surprise appearance at the Royal Rumble. Christian, do it for your peeps.

Billy Gunn

“Cause I’m an ass man.” This year the Royal Rumble needs to get a visit from Bad ass Billy Gunn. Last year we saw the Rumble return of his partner Road Dogg so I believe this year the WWE will be treated to a newly sober Billy Gunn and if you didn’t know your ass better call somebody.

Scott Steiner

This is a long shot by far but with the recent attention Steiner has been getting on the internet it would be a very smart move for the WWE to get the big bad booty daddy in the Royal Rumble. Now holla if you here me.

Mark Henry

If the WWE fans in Arizona witness the World’s Strongest man exit the curtain for the Royal Rumble match there is a good chance he will win the whole thing. Mark Henry is a seasoned veteran looking for one last run with the world title. Expect many superstars to be entered into the Hall Of Pain.

Ultimately, this are only prediction therefore they may or may not come true. If there has anything I have learned though from 10 years of being a wrestling fan; anything can happen at the Royal Rumble.
