ROUGH CUTS–THE ROYAL RUMBLE PREVIEW & PICKS

Posted January 29th, 2012 by Bill Apter

This is Salvatore LaSardo and welcome to the first major PPV of the year, the Royal Rumble…I have to admit this is one of my favorites that has held to form for the past 25 years…This to me is the one true major PPV of the year and always a must see…The reason being we all pay to watch the Rumble itself, a very unpredictable match where anyone can win and go on to immortality…

Here are my predictions…

1. I believe Cena will beat Kane but something tells me this is where we will begin to see the heel turn of Cena…I think its long over due because the fans are no longer embracing him…He gets booed nearly at every arena he goes to…The fact is with Wrestlemania looming with his match against the Rock, we need to see Cena be the most hated man in Miami…How amazing will it be to see Cena get “Rock Bottomed”? I think it will be epic to hear nearly 100,000 people cheer the Rock…The turn will boost ratings and give the company and added edge going forward…My prediction Cena wins the match, and turns heel during the Rumble and the hate is embraced on RAW the following night…

2. Daniel Bryan will leave the triple threat cage match with the title…David vs Goliath? There is ZERO chance Daniel loses the title here…Henry and Big Show will end up battling and Daniel will find a way to outsmart both men and walk out of the cage…

3. I do expect CM Punk to be screwed tonight and lose the title…I do believe there is more to this than meets the eye…Something tells me HHH is behind this and will work with John L. and make sure CM loses the belt at the PPV…I just some can not imagine how Dolph Ziggler is going to headline WrestleMania…I do not think it matters because everyone wants to see Rock vs Cena anyway’s…So having Dolph win the title is not going to stop the push for the true main event of Wrestlemania in Miami…

4. I see the Undertaker coming back tonight and winning the Rumble and going on to WrestleMania where he will defeat Dolph Ziggler and become Champion…This is the time of the year Taker comes back and tonight is the night…I do not expect this to be Taker’s last WrestleMania, as I believe he will wrestle one more year…I truly believe in my heart, that the WWE will find a solid competitor to face Taker in his final WrestleMania…I have a feeling 2013 is his last WrestleMania and thats’s where he loses and walks away…I predict he will face Goldberg, Sting or CM Punk in 2013…Some say he will face Brock Lesnar and it will happen not at Wrestlemania, but closer to SummerSlam where Taker will disappear again till January of 2013…

Allot people feel Randy Orton will win this Royal Rumble and he is a solid choice but I do not believe he needs to win the Rumble because he has done it all already and he does not need the push per say as he is an elite SuperStar. He also has an ongoing feud with Wade Barrett right now and that will end at WrestleMania…

CM Punk after getting screwed over the WWE will be very interesting to say the least…Punk loses the title but gets his re-match at WrestleMania would be a solid twist as well…That would make allot of sense, since he would be guaranteed a re-match and why not at WrestleMania…He does not have to exercise his rematch clause till then…He can build this up and also give Dolph a push as well…

I believe the MIZ since he drew #1, will last allot longer than most people give him credit for…I think he will be one of the final 5 left standing in this match because he is the MIZ and he is AWESOME !!!!

Every year, the Royal Rumble offers allot of intrigue, surprises, and unpredictability…I believe this year is no different…The mystery of who will be in the Rumble always is an eye catcher…The element of a suprise entrant that may go on and win is always worth watching…That’s why I am glad we do not know who is in it, or what ball is being drawn…I like the surprise and to hear the crowd chat 5-4-3-2-1 !!! and you see who is next is just amazing…It truly is the best way to start a new year off…This is one of my favorite PPV’s of the year and I am looking to tonight and I hope you are as well…

This has been Salvatore LaSardo, Jr for Rough Cuts…As always may all of your matches be a Main Event…Your feedback is welcome to slasardojr@yahoo.com
