WWE Royal Rumble Predictions
Welcome to WWE first PPV offering of 2011 Royal Rumble. I suspect like many of you this is a favourite PPV. I have always found the rumble entertaining and this year we now have 40 entrants instead of 30!! So here are my predictions for WWE Royal Rumble 2011 As always these are my own opinions on what I think might happen/ would like to happen!!!
The Miz (c) vs. Randy Orton Singles match for the WWE Championship
I think MIz as WWE Champion has freshened things up a bit on Raw. I have liked seeing someone new with championship - the last time that happened it was Sheamus. I think The Miz has this great quality about him that he is able to get "heat" or anger from the fans no matter what situation he is in. For every good feud in wrestling you need a good antagonist and Miz fits that bill perfectly. However I haven't really agreed with the way Miz has been built for this PPV. Miz has been in matches with Jerry Lawler and as a long time wrestling fan the champion would usually have the end match of Raw. Instead John Cena/Cm Punk/Nexus has been closing Raw. Most people wont agree but it makes it look like The Miz is less important and that someone somewhere in the WWE doesn't think MIz can close up Raw. I like Randy Orton he is a great wrestler and has so much skill both in what he does in and out of the ring. I have said this before why does it feel like Orton has gone off the boil? He has so much yet (as I have said before) it feels like his character has been dumbed-down since he lost the title. My feeling is that The MIz will keep hold of his title. Think it might possibly be a count out or DQ but this way the feud can continue into Elimination Chamber.
jon422002's Prediction - Winner and STILL WWE Champion The Miz by DQ or Countout
Edge (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler Singles match for the World Heavyweight Championship
Edge beat Kane for the WWE Title and then had a tremendous rematch on Smackdown against Kane in a last man standing match. A really great entertaining match and i would venture to say probably the best match I have seen between them. On that same episode of Smackdown Dolph Ziggler lost the intercontinental Title to Kofi KIngston but on that very same night beat 3 other men to become number one contender for the World Championship.
As many of you have read this before you will know that Dolph Ziggler was my next big thing of 2010 well I'm keeping him and adding Alberto Del Rio as my nest big things of 2011. Ziggler has sooo much heat due to being with Vicki Guerreo. Ziggler himself is a tremendous wrestler and as Dameon Nelson - Host of the Pro Wrestling Report stated "he is the best bumper in WWE" and I totally agree with that. I think these two will have a fantastic match and I think that Ziggler's time to shine is now. I like Edge as champion but if Edge does win the match where do you go next with Edge??? I think we will see a shock a brand New World Champion...
jon422002's Prediction Winner and NEW World Champion DOLPH ZIGGLER
Natayla vs Laycool 2-1 Handicap Match
I see this match going the way of Laycool. I am a fan of Natayla and think she's great in the ring but I have got to say that I think Laycool are exellent in there roles in WWE in really can freshen feud up. I have a feeling that Awesome Kong will debut at the Rumble and Join Forces with Laycool as an enforcer this gives new life to the feud and could lead to some very entertaining and different matches.
Winners and NEW Diva Champions Laycool
40 Man Royal Rumble Match Winner gets a shot at either the WWE or World Title at Wrestlemania
Here are the list of 25 confirmed Entrants so far (in no particular order)
Alberto Del Rio
David Hart Smith
Wade Barrett Mason Ryan, Jack Swagger, Drew Mcintyre Kofi Kingston, Kane Big Show
Well there is a list out of 25 out of those listed currently I would go for Alberto Del Rio to win the rumble. I can see the CM Punk/Cena Feud still going and I have a feeling that Sheamus will have trouble find his A "game" during the rumble. I would be great to see Del Rio win it he has such a good character and think he has a great future in WWE and has all the elements to be a great champion!!
We are going to get a few surprises in the rumble this year I think I could be HHH, Jericho or any number of other wrestlers lets hope we see some great matches and some more great rumble moments made!!! Until next time!!!
