WWE Royal Rumble 2012 Results: News Reaction and Analysis from PPV

It’s one of the best pay-per-views that the WWE puts on as a company: the Royal Rumble. And tonight, the field is as wide open as ever.  

However, before we get into the over-the-top battle royal match, there is a stacked card that features three excellent matches. Two of those matches are title bouts, with the WWE and World Heavyweight Title on the line.  

Will both champions—CM Punk and Daniel Bryan—be able to hold onto their championships and head into the road to WrestleMania as the face of the company? Or, will Dolph Ziggler pull one of the biggest upsets in the history of the company, defeating Punk for the WWE Title? 

On the SmackDown side, can Daniel Bryan hold off both the Big Show and Mark Henry as they battle inside of the unforgiving steel cage? It will be interesting to see if Henry will be able to compete tonight, after suffering an injury on the last episode of SmackDown. 

Aside from the two title matches, John Cena will be out for blood as he battles “The Big Red Machine,” Kane. Kane is fresh off of destroying Cena’s best friend, Zack Ryder, and it looks like it was the thing that finally pushed Cena over the edge. 

Will Cena finally embrace the hate, destroying Kane and showing a violent side that the WWE Universe has never seen?

And then there is the 30-man Royal Rumble match. There are a number of exciting question marks heading into the match such as:

Will Randy Orton win the Royal Rumble at his hometown of St. Louis? Can The Miz survive from No. 1 to be the last man standing? What will Chris Jericho do in the rumble match that makes it the end of the world? And, which former superstar will make a shocking return tonight? 

Follow us live here tonight as we will be updating you with results, analysis and opinion on what happened in the match.
