In mere hours on Sunday night, WWE will present its 27th annual Royal Rumble pay-per-view event, live from the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh at 8 p.m. ET.
The Royal Rumble is always one of the most highly anticipated events of the year, and rightfully so. It is the one night of the year that almost anything is possible, in addition to the fact that it signals the start of the road to WrestleMania.
John Cena and Randy Orton will meet once more for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, this time with no stipulations attached. Will Cena finally be successful in overcoming Orton, or will The Viper find a way to slither his way out of the arena with his title intact?
In a battle of the behemoths, Brock Lesnar and Big Show will face off in a Royal Rumble rematch from 11 years ago. Will The Beast Incarnate be able to continue his streak momentum, or will Show put an end to Lesnar's reign of terror?
Of course, a Royal Rumble PPV would not be complete without a Rumble match, where 30 men will compete for a chance to headline WrestleMania. What lucky individual will outlast the 29 other competitors and become the new No. 1 contender to the WWE World Heavyweight Championship?
Here, I will provide my personal preview, prediction and potential for every match on the advertised card.
