WWE Royal Rumble: 10 Bold Predictions for the Epic, 40-Man Battle

The first major WWE show of 2011 takes place this Sunday with the annual Royal Rumble. This event is the official start on the road to Wrestlemania. The Royal Rumble match itself is being advertised as "the biggest rumble in history," because WWE has upped the ante this year by putting 40 wrestlers into the match instead of the traditional 30.

There are a number of interesting story-lines heading into the show and a number of possible story-lines that will begin after the show is over. To this point we don't know all of the participants in the Rumble match, which is customary because WWE always likes at least one surprise entrant.

Besides the Rumble, there is a WWE Championship match between The Miz and Randy Orton. These two have had an interesting feud ever since Miz cashed in the "Money In The Bank Briefcase" the night after Survivor Series and won the title from Orton. Will Orton return the favor and go into Wrestlemania as WWE Champion?

On the Smackdown side of things, Edge defends the World Heavyweight Title against Dolph Ziggler. It's an interesting matchup to say the least. Given how poorly Ziggler has been booked ever since becoming the No. 1 contender, it would be shocking to see him walk out of the arena with the belt. Although, stranger things have happened.

So what exactly is going to happen at the Royal Rumble this Sunday?

Here are 10 Bold Predictions about the second biggest WWE show of the year.
