It has just been announced that CM Punk will face off against William Regal tonight at the Royal Rumble with the Intercontinental Championship on the line.
Seems to me that we have all seen this match, over and over, the past few weeks on RAW. The WWE must think that fans have not gotten enough of these two going at one another. Both matches have ended in a disqualification, so who didn't see a no disqualification match coming the following week? Also, who didn't see CM Punk winning the Intercontinental Title in his hometown of Chicago?
However, I did not see this coming. Personally, I thought the card was set for tonight. With all the anticipation for Cena versus JBL, Edge versus Jeff Hardy, the possible return of Christian, and let alone the Rumble itself; who really wants to see this match for the fourth straight time?
I'd be shocked if the belt was lifted off of CM Punk so quickly. There is a possibility this match may be before the televised broadcast begins. The question remains—why?
