Whether or not it is the final match of the night, the main event for the Royal Rumble is the 30-man over-the-top-rope Battle Royal. The winner of this annual bout is awarded the chance to challenge for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania XXX.
There have been years in the past where a clear winner was present—just as John Cena was the favorite in 2013—but there are several feasible options in this edition of the Rumble.
A serious case can be made for Daniel Bryan, Batista, CM Punk, Roman Reigns and many others as possible winners.
Not only do fans get the 30-man Royal Rumble, but the WWE title will also be on the line as John Cena and Randy Orton once again go one-on-one. This is the second PPV match in a row between these two combatants, and the fans will be looking for a unique ending to this bout.
Add in a match between former WWE and UFC champion Brock Lesnar and the Big Show, and this is a Royal Rumble card worthy of the road to WrestleMania.
