What's more exciting than 30 men, and the occasional woman, in an all-out brawl for the right to go to WrestleMania?
The Royal Rumble signals the kickoff for the road to WrestleMania, as a who's who of WWE talent vie for the opportunity to participate in the main event of the biggest show of the year.
The annual battle royal spectacular is revered for its excitement, fast pace, and, of course, surprises. With so many wrestling headlines pertaining to big names swirling around and with the Rumble being such a wide open field, there are a host of names who would make the 2012 Royal Rumble one of the most memorable events in years.
Rob Van Dam's contract with TNA seems to be coming to an end, so why not let him out early and have him appear as a surprise entrant in the Royal Rumble? It has almost been a full year since the Undertaker has returned, and the Royal Rumble would be the perfect setting to do so as a dark horse winner. The Funkasaurus Brodus Clay made his much talked about debut this past week on RAW, and could be a force in this year's Royal Rumble match.
