At time of writing, the introduced record of entrants within the males’s Royal Rumble match is slightly sturdy – versus the introduced record of entrants within the girls’s Royal Rumble match, which would not even make up a six-pack problem.
Cody Rhodes, the anticipated favorite, is the person round whom the match has been constructed – to terrific impact. His painstaking street to restoration has been captured completely through intimate video packages that have not remotely scanned as self-pity. Cody is not a martyr begging to your sympathy. He’s, and apologies for the wordplay, merely doing the work.
Ricochet, Santos Escobar, Kofi Kingston, Austin Idea, Seth ‘Freakin” Rollins, Bobby Lashley, Baron Corbin, Rey Mysterio, GUNTHER, Omos, Drew McIntyre, Sheamus, Braun Strowman and Karrion Kross spherical out the sector.
Of that 14, there is a sturdy mixture of workrate iron males and massive lads who will take some eliminating (and Karrion Kross). Even when GUNTHER is not successful, his presence will create drama.
A number of extra names are sure to be introduced on SmackDown, and slots can be left open for the customary shock appearances – however who’s probably to attract from the tumbler…?
Dominik and Rey Mysterio should work together, will work together, and Dom should put on his obnoxious, deluded grin after they work together.
Rey would not need to struggle and even harm Dom, however they’re working a WrestleMania match, in order that story have to be superior. The Rumble, with its many transferring components, is the perfect car with which to realize that. Rey can (and may) eradicate Dom accidentally, and – this does not write itself, Triple H has elegantly pushed the story thus far – he has the perfect transfer with which to do it.
Rey hits someone or different with the 619, they stumble again, and knock a gloating tw*t Dom off the apron.
Rey is crushed, Dom is incensed, and the match can be set after the Judgment Day use the elimination as motivation to beat Rey down so laborious that he’ll don’t have any alternative.
Damian Priest should do many of the work there, clearly.
