Heyman's promo was one of his best in recent memory. His physical appearance and demeanor added to it tremendously as well

Any prognosticators wanna guess who wins this one BEFORE the storytelling direction starts this week?

Three options: Cena, Taker and THE DEMON KING. I guess I will go with Balor because why the fuck not.

I think Cena wins to either set up a match vs AJ or Taker (depending on his health). Originally was thinking Reigns but there doesnt seem to be a big time champion for him to challenge this year.

Royal Rumble is my favorite PPV theme they have, what is your favorite rumble match/moment ever?

Cena wins the Rumble, faces Styles to tie the record.

I'm also assuming they find a way to get the strap off of Owens here. No way he goes into WrestleMania as the Universal Champion.

Roman wins the title off Owens earlier that night, goes on to win the Rumble. Cause why not.

The only way I see him retaining is if a) they have a bigger match in mind for Roman and b) Balor is set to be ready for Mania and they want to do him and Owens.

I wish Jericho would win the Rumble and set up Owens Vs. Jericho at Mania. I think Jericho winning would get a really good reaction. Then I see a storyline where Owens tries to get Jericho to use his titleshot on AJ Styles.

Idk if I am the only one but Jericho vs Owens doesn't feel like something huge. Like, you can do this at something like Fastlane, but it is not a Wrestlemania worthy title match.

The issue is what is a wrestlemania worthy title match if Finn Balor isn't ready?
