The past two editions of Royal Rumble have been lame. Let me explain. John Cena was the winner of the 2013 Royal Rumble. After that he defeated The Rock for the WWE Championship. It was a bad decision because they could have given a new talent the opportunity to win the Royal Rumble. After all the company did that because they wanted John Cena vs The Rock 2 in which John Cena finally defeats The Rock for the WWE Championship. The 2014 edition was also a bad decision because Batista won the Royal Rumble but he doesn’t deserve it. After all he was in Hollywood and out of the WWE for four years. Fortunately he doesn’t win the title because it would have caused a riot between the WWE Universe. After two dissapointing Royal Rumbles, who will win the opportunity for a golden ticket in WrestleMania on 2015? I will mention the top three candidates to do that.
- 1) Cesaro. He is the perfect superstar to win the Royal Rumble. He is not ready right now to win the title so the best the WWE can do with Cesaro is develop his in-ring skills and his microphone skills. Paul Heyman should do better promos with Cesaro. It is possible that Brock Lesnar will come back before the ending of the year 2014 so probably these two will have a showdown. Paul Heyman will be on Brock Lesnar corner and Cesaro finally will be a babyface. Cesaro should win that match and he will get that momentum to the Royal Rumble.
- 2) Roman Reigns. He is the superstar that is receiving the biggest push of the company. Right now he is in a storyline with Triple H. If he beats Triple H at SummerSlam then he has to keep that momentum until he defeats Seth Rollins and wrestle at the Royal Rumble. If you remember, Roman Reigns was the runner up last year at Royal Rumble. Batista threw him over the top rope winning the Royal Rumble. In 2015 it will be a different story. Roman Reigns will probably win the Royal Rumble to have his WrestleMania 31 moment and win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
- 3) Daniel Bryan. This choice it is less likely but if Daniel Bryan returns at the end of the year 2014 then The Authority will probably not give him the rematch clause he deserves for the title, so they will make him win the Rumble so he can have his title opportunity.
In conclusion, one of these three men will win the Royal Rumble. The favorite obviously is Roman Reigns because he is getting the biggest push in the company. If he performs well for the rest of the year 2014 then he will probably win the Royal Rumble so he can have the opportunity to win the title.
