So who’s going to go the distance at the 2016 WWE Royal Rumble? 30 of pro wrestling’s greatest stars are going head to head in an epic battle that is sure to be one for the ages. We’ve got some picks on who you should be looking out for to win on the big night.
There will be plenty of big names and fan favorites and surprises on the card for the 2016 Royal Rumble PPV. WWE Superstars like Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar and much more will be looking to come away with the big win. Especially since the winner becomes the WWE Champion! So who will win? We’ve got the details on who to keep an eye on for the big event![hl_amazon_ns]
Roman Reigns is thirsty for his second consecutive Royal Rumble victory, something that hasn’t happened in 18 years and we’re rallying behind him to pull it off, especially since the odds are stacked against him. The current WWE Champion will be starting in the number one spot and will have to defend his title against 29 other WWE Superstars. Quite the tall feet, even for someone like Reigns.
Bray Wyatt will be one to watch as the bearded one has said he plans to go the distance in the Rumble. But the various times Bray has won and lost in his career he can’t be trusted to pull it off. He will go far but he will likely fail in his quest to win even having the help from the Wyatt Family. And with many surprises we don’t know about yet he may be lost in the shuffle.
But one non surprise is Chris Jericho who is returning to the event to give it a major dose of star power, he’ll likely stay in the ring for quite some time but will he have enough to pull it off? There is definitely a chance, he has done some amazing things before so why not Sunday?
Time to cross your fingers, Daniel Bryan could be a surprise entrant. He has been cleared to wrestle by many doctors following his concussion past and totally wants to be in on the action for the Rumble. However, the WWE doctors haven’t cleared him so we’ll all be waiting to see is he makes his surprise return, and after his time away from the ring he’s going to be hungry for action! And that hunger could put him over the edge to be the victor! Only time will tell! We’d love to see it happen!
Could the WWE chose a total surprise winner? If so, maybe they can create a star in Luke Harper who is a hulking giant who will be a hard one to throw out of the ring so be sure to keep an eye on him to be taking out many in the match. But would he turn on his partners in the Wyatt Family to do it? To become a bigger star, why not!
And it would be hard not to add in something we’re totally pulling for and that is Triple H to make his WWE in ring comeback, and the Royal Rumble would be the PERFECT place to do it. If he makes his surprise last-minute entrance in the event as many have anticipated, he could finally extract his revenge on Roman. This seems to be the most logical option so far. There are also still plenty of names left that will be announced prior to the big event and we’re betting on him being one of them. And we wouldn’t be surprised to see if he wins it all!
But Brock Lesnar and a potential debut of AJ Styles may have something to say about that and could lead into an anything can happen vibe to the festivities for a potential winner. And what about members of the NXT Universe. Maybe NXT Champion Finn Balor? Ultimately this is a chance for the WWE to make a mark with multiple surprises! So if they rolled the dice, it could work in their favor!
What is great about the Royal Rumble is everyone has a chance and everyone has their choice on who they think will win, and with the WWE Championship on the line we can only expect the unexpected!
