Royal Rumble Wishlist: If I Were In Charge How the Royal Rumble Would Finish

The Royal Rumble: A pay-per-view centered on one match. Don't believe me? When was the last time, besides 2009, a world title changed hands at the pay-per-view? (this was to ignite the Jeff Hardy-Matt Hardy feud, Jeff's first reign wasn't about the title, but about his attacks)  In fact, look at the contenders.

2011: Dolph Ziggler, Randy Orton

2010: Rey Mysterio, Randy Orton

2009: Edge, JBL

2008: Rey Mysterio, Jeff Hardy

2007: Mr. Kennedy, Umaga

2006: Mark Henry, Edge

2005: Randy Orton, Big Show and Kurt Angle (triple threat)

 

One title change in 12 world title matches, no pay-per-view has such a low rate, an 8.5 percent title change rate. While many of these guys were serious threats, guys like JBL, Randy Orton (in 2005) Umaga, Edge (2006) and Mark Henry were not serious contenders. The unique (and cool) thing about this pay-per-view is that it is centered around one match, one one-hour+ match that has incredibly huge implications. If this were my pay-per-view, these are my picks.
