The road to Wrestlemania begins tonight as Philadelphia hosts the 2015 Royal Rumble.
As most of you all know, the winner of the 30-man Royal Rumble will go on to compete in the main event of Wrestlemania 31 in a WWE World Heavyweight Title Match.
The Royal Rumble is most people’s second-favourite pay-per-view of the year (behind Wrestlemania) and after the disaster of last year’s event, WWE will need to ensure that tonight is a success.
Going into the event, Roman Reigns is still the favourite to win the rumble despite many casting doubts on his potential as a main-event star.
Rumours have been circulating that Vince McMahon himself is beginning to question if giving Reigns a main-event push is the right option.
Daniel Bryan is the second favourite and will definitely have the fans support tonight… even if it does come down to him and Reigns as the final two.
After the top two it really is wide-open to as who could win the rumble. You have the likes of Dolph Ziggler, Ryback, Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose and Rusev who could all have a chance of winning.
Then of course you have all of the surprise entrants and possible returnees. Randy Orton is due back any day now and given that he is now a babyface, he would automatically be a contender.
For me personally, I would love Ambrose to be the man that wins the Rumble.
He has been the surprise package after the dismantling of The Shield and has become more popular with the fans then many had expected.
He feud with Seth Rollins was one of the best the company has had in a very long time and his anti-authority attitude gives him a personality… unlike Reigns.
He has been booked terribly by the creative team though and with this in mind, my favourite most-likely will not be chosen to win tonight.
That’s just my opinion though. Who do you all want to win the Royal Rumble match? Take the poll below and let me know!
