In just two days, WWE presents the 2013 Royal Rumble, live from Phoenix, Arizona. Five matches have been made official. Here is the card as well as my predictions:
(Pre-show) United States Championship: Antonio Cesaro © vs. The Miz
Cesaro wins here as he continues to creep toward the main event scene.
Tag Team Championship: Daniel Bryan and Kane © vs. Damien Sandow and Cody Rhodes
I like Team Hell No to retain here in what should be an entertaining bout.
Last Man Standing match for the World Heavyweight Championship: Alberto Del Rio © vs. Big Show
I wonder if either of these two guys will be World Champion come Wrestle Mania. Del Rio wins here and retains.
I see Punk retaining here, setting up a rematch between the two at the 2013 Elimination Chamber.
Royal Rumble match, winner gets a World Title match at Wrestle Mania:
There are only a handful of guys who could win this. Those in my opinion are John Cena, Dolph Ziggler, Sheamus or Randy Orton. I suppose there is an outside chance for guys like The Miz, Wade Barrett, Antonio Cesaro, Daniel Bryan or Kane. Will a big name return (Triple H, Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker) to win much like Cena and Edge have in the past? I’m going with Orton to win the Rumble.
