Bernard Barnes @thedailyjobber

The 2016 Royal Rumble is now a chapter for the history books, and in those books it will say that the Chief Operating Officer for WWE, former D-X founder and current head of NXT, Triple H, is the reigning, defending, undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Champion for a 14th time!

WWE World Heavyweight Championship to be decided in Royal Rumble match!

In a shocking development on the first Monday Night Raw of 2016, Chairman of the Board and CEO of WWE Vincent K. McMahon announced that Roman Reigns would defend his WWE World Heavyweight Championship against 29 other competitors in the Royal Rumble match.

Jobber Report: Raw Re-cap & Reactions, Groundhog Day, 2015

Swimming in the Deep End: Can Roman Reigns Sink or Survive?

raw-060214-roman-reignsThis past Monday, from the innards of a massive blizzard in Connecticut, Roman Reigns told a heart-warming story about his father, Sika Annoi’a. He talked about his father throwing him into the deep end of a pool, of feeling like he was going to drown, but ultimately fighting his way to the surface and thus learning to swim.

He related that story, I’m sure, because he knows he is in that position now.

Winning the Royal Rumble should be a glorious moment for any WWE superstar. It will forever be an accomplishment, a high point of their hopefully long and decorated career. This year’s Rumble winner, Roman Reigns, has reaped the unfortunate whirlwind of a bitter wrestling community, and thus been denied the adulation of such a momentous feat.
