The 2012 Royal Rumble is one of the best pay-per-views that WWE puts on every year. This is the time when we find out which star is going to receive a monster push over the next year.
While conventional wisdom has a well known wrestler stealing the show, the truth is that this year is just unpredictable enough to become the greatest in the 25-year history of the event.

Main Event Preview and Prediction
With the Royal Rumble always being the wildest of all the WWE pay-per-views put on each year, this year’s event will be no different.
Rumors have been running rampant about stars who may be returning, but nothing is certain until the final man is left standing in the ring.
With so many stars looking strong, it will be interesting to see how the WWE handles the Rumble.
Look for the regular superstars to be remaining when all is said and done, but something about this year has the feel of a first-time winner.
It may just be the season, but I am overly-excited for this event!
Watch out for a possible Triple H win. He may be pulling for one last run, and he has connections in the back. I think.
