For the Royal Rumble Kick Off we have the team of Cody and Goldust (c) vs The New Age Outlaws (Billy Gunn & Road Dogg) for the WWE Tag Team Championship. To me this was a thrown together title match, although it's not so obvious but there is a slight storyline being that The New Age Outlaws are friends with HHH. Other than that I really feel the The Usos should have got that title shot instead. I want Cody & Goldust to keep the belts but I think The New Age Outlaws might win.
Next up Daniel Bryan vs Bray Wyatt. There has being a really great storyline between these two. I expect a great match. While I would like Daniel to win I think Bray should win instead so this storyline extends till Wrestlemania.
Next is Big Show vs Brock Lesnar. At first I thought this was going to be another thrown together match but it's really starting to have a good storyline. Can Brock beat the Big Show? Who knows but just keep in mind that the presence of Paul Heyman has always played some role in his clients wins. I think Brock will take this one.
One of biggies of the night will be Randy Orton (c) vs John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Randy has grown more paranoid as the Royal Rumble quickly approaches. His attack on John's father recently has mad this match very personal. He also has to worry about Brock and Batista, two men who came back to the WWE solely for that belt. It should be an interesting match. I think John will win but Randy will try and steal a win.
The main match that this PPV is named after- The Royal Rumble match. CM Punk will be in spot #1. Batista, The Shield, and two members of The Wyatt will be ones to watch in this massive match. 20 men have been announced so far leaving 10 spots for surprise entrants.
Remember there's still time for matches to be added so make sure to watch Main Event and Smackdown for the latest Royal Rumble news. Be sure to tune in to PPV on Sunday 1/26/14 at 8:00 pm for the Royal Rumble.
