It's the first big WWE pay per view of the year, it's the Royal Rumble! The match starts with two superstars, then another superstar enters every ninety seconds. The match continues as thirty superstars enter the Rumble, until one man is left standing. That man is given the biggest opportunity and biggest career moment in his career. He gets to main event Wrestlemania and receive a WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match.
This year's Royal Rumble takes place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, home of the Eagles, Phillies, Flyers and 76ers. A city best known for their Philly Cheesesteaks and Rocky Balboa. Tonight, Philly will be known for something else. Philly will be known as the city that crowns a new #1 Contender to the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
*** Tonight's Card ***
- "WWE World Heavyweight Championship, Triple Threat Match": Brock Lesnar (c) vs. John Cena vs. Seth Rollins: John Cena finally gets to cash in on his #1 Contendership that he earned back at Hell In A Cell when he defeated Randy Orton in a #1 Contenders match. This will be Cena and Lesnar's fourth and possibly final match against each other since Lesnar's return in 2012. Cena took the first match at Extreme Rules 2012. Lesnar dominated Cena at SummerSlam 2014 in their second encounter winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from Cena. Cena took the third match at Night of Champions 2014 by DQ due to Seth Rollins interfering. As a reward for helping The Authority return to TV, Triple H inserted Seth Rollins into the title match and made it a Triple Threat Match. Rollins, looks to finally win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and solidifying his spot as the future of the WWE. Rollins also still has the Money In The Bank briefcase in his possession. Could Rollins cash in if he fails to win the title in the triple threat? Who will leave Royal Rumble the champion? Whoever it is will move on to defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against the Royal Rumble winner at Wrestlemania 31.
So there is this year's card for the 2015 Royal Rumble. And now it's a new year, so it's time for something new. Every pay per view preview I post I will put my predictions on who I think will win each match and keep track of my wins and losses throughout the year.
** My Predictions **
- The New Day defeat Kidd, Cesaro and Rose.
- The Bellas defeat Neidhart and Paige.
- The Ascension defeat New Age Outlaws.
- Brock Lesnar defeats Cena and Rollins. Rollins doesn't cash in money in the bank.
- Royal Rumble winner: Daniel Bryan
