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.

WWE Fast Lane: full card predictions

The last big event before WrestleMania, and I am honestly disappointed the Elimination Chamber isn’t being prepped to be lowered ominously over the ring at in the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee.

In January, I would have thought that such a gimmick device could be quite useful in complimenting the number of talented superstars with great heat bouncing around before the Rumble, all with real possibilities of being a number one contender. Think about it: Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns, Dolph Ziggler, Bray Wyatt, Rusev – all are gunning for the brass ring, all very capable and talented wrestlers, all going into the Rumble with heads of steam and eyes on the prize. You take all these stars, put them in the battle royal, shake well, and have it go to shmoz ending where no clear winner is declared. Then those wrestlers go to Elimination Chamber, where a decisive number one contender is crowned and any number of feuds may be born.

But no. The company decided to bypass the gimmick in favour of a generic offering that only serves to point out how WrestleMania is fast approaching and we need to build drama real friggin’ quick before the big night comes.

The WWE’s recent trend of leaving match cards relatively empty until days before the event is continuing, and in fact I had to look on the official website to find out exactly which matches we could expect on Sunday, because many were added in the last few days.

So, let’s get to the event itself before it’s already over and the results are already in.

Dolph Ziggler: The New Heartbreak Kid

As the Road to Wrestlemania is set to kick off and my wife and I begin planning our road trip to Santa Clara in April, there’s a lot of buzz around Dolph Ziggler. Some say he’s a dark horse in the Royal Rumble match who could steal the whole show. Some say he’s ready for a push to be the face of the WWE Universe pretty soon. Some, my wife among them, doubt that a guy like Ziggler has what it takes to carry the fed on his tanned shoulders. I, on the other hand, could see it happening. Why? Because I’ve seen it happen before.
