I think there is a good chance we see Roman Reigns win it. But then I'm not sure what happens to the Shield. It's a great stable and I know they don't wanna break up a tag team when they are just starting to build tag teams back up. But Reigns looks like he's ready to take that next step. Sure his mic skills aren't great but he has everything else you need in a guy to hold the strap. The look, the moves, the entrance, hell even the heritage.


And if not him then maybe I see either the obvious in Bryan. Or maybe a shocker like Big E./Kofi. Just not SuperCena. Pleeeeease not that.
Here's what I think of chances of those mentioned of winning the Rumble:

Daniel Bryan - Very likely according to how over he has been.
CM Punk - Maybe. He enters #1 and his feud with authorities seems to be built up for WM. But things could be built differently.
Roman Reigns - Unlikely as long as the Shield is still bonding well enough. He will be the man off the group soon though.
Big E Langston - Long shot. He still has the IC title to take care of.
Kofi Kingston - Hell no. He is an eternal midcarder now.
John Cena - If he loses to Orton, very likely.
Randy Orton - If he loses to Cena, very likely.
Batista - Please no. Just let him pick on Del Rio please.
Brock Lesnar - Please no. Just let him pick on Undertaker please.

I don't think this is a year without any clear cuts like the one Sheamus won. Bryan, Punk and maybe Cena/Orton should win this.

Rumble odds I found somewhere:

Daniel Bryan 5:1
Batista 10:1
Randy Orton 20:1
CM Punk 25:1
Chris Jericho(!?) 30:1
John Cena 40:1
Sheamus 75:1
The field: 250:1

I wouldn't bet on Batista for sure.

Batista looks like a scrawny little clean-shaven runt compared to his former self. A little boy even. He's no match for a Mark Henry fued rekindling, much less match ups with Big Show or Lesnar.

Everything Im seeing says Bryan isn't even gonna be in the Rumble. He's got a match against Bray earlier on the card, and he just had a concussion a week and a half ago so I think they're keeping him out of it so he doesn't overwork himself/risk further head injury before Mania

I read that he was guaranteed a long and dominant title run, so I'm guessing he wins at Mania vs. Orton.

I doubt Trips would have guaranteed a "dominant title run" to a guy on the wrong side of 40 who hasn't wrestled in 5 years and has a worse physique than Punk.

Job this imposter out to Reigns, Harper, Big E and whoever else. Without gis gassed up physique he has nothing.

Concussion is a funny thing. It can be next to nothing to some and life threatening to others. So I hope for him to be the former.

For the Rumble match, he could either enter late or purposely take less high spots during the match. But if it would mean for his future health, then skipping the whole thing is fine.

Punk is the safe bet as his last goal is to ME wrestlemania, but its looking more like a feud with Triple H instead.

Every other main player seems to be busy in their feuds

This years Rumble is going to be pretty good, mainly because of how all the ME's are interconnected with the Authority, and there's no telling who will turn and heel and face between now and Wrestlemania.

Personally want Reigns to win, break up the Shield while they're still strong.

Goldust should win. Top of his game and he's proven he can carry Orton to a good match

I know we get these rumors every year.. but this finally looks to be the year Sting comes to the WWE

Quote:
WWE officials have reportedly believed for months that Sting was coming in this year and it's been talked about even more like it's going to happen recently.

It's believed that Sting worked two rare TNA live events last week because he owed two dates on his existing contract, which is expiring. As noted earlier, people within WWE have been under the impression that he's coming in for months.

while a contract itself hasn't been signed yet, talks between Sting and WWE are so far that they are discussing concepts for him using the name "A Man Called Sting."

I'd love to see Sting come around but it sucks that he's too old to have that classic Undertaker fight everyone's always wanted. Between the two of them they're what, 100 years old?
