Hello, Bleachers, this is the live blog for the 2012 WWE Royal Rumble! Join us for live results and reviews of the event, as well as real-time discussion of the pay-per-view in the comment section.

The road to WrestleMania begins at the Royal Rumble, where a WrestleMania main event title shot is on the line in the Royal Rumble match, and 30 WWE Superstars will be doing their very best to be the last man standing.

In the main event of the evening, CM Punk will be defending his WWE Championship against Dolph Ziggler. The real story there is that the third man in the ring will be Interim Raw GM, John Laurinaitis, who may or may not call the match down the middle now that his precious job, title, and power are at risk.

Also on the card, World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan will defend his title in a steel cage match against Mark Henry and Big Show.  

One of the matches with the most buzz and uncertainty around it is the showdown between John Cena and Kane. Following Kane's vicious beating of Zack Ryder in their falls count anywhere match on Raw, Eve Torres blamed Cena for Zack's injury. This led to Cena getting comically angry on camera, but served to show that Kane has truly gotten to Cena.

Join in on the live discussion with us here in the comment section once the show begins.
