WWE Royal Rumble 2015 Predictions



WWE World Heavyweight Title Match
Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena vs. Seth Rollins
Mascara De Fuego: John Cena… then Seth Rollins. I hate this prediction but I think this is the way they will book the show. Brock being the wild-card in regards to his contract leaves him in an odd place. Yeah, he will work WrestleMania but I don’t think they will put him in the main event since it will probably be his last show. I would love to see Brock stick around but I think its a forgone conclusion that 1-the WWE can’t afford to keep Brock around anymore and 2-the UFC can afford him… with that, Brock will lose the title to Cena (who unfortunately then ties Ric Flair with World Title wins) but as usual for Cena, he will get cashed in on (again) and lose the title to Seth Rollins who will then go to WrestleMania as champion. Let’s face it, he’s been the ONLY heel that they’ve built up into a place where main eventing Mania is actually viable option for him. Lord knows, they’ve been sucking at utilizing Brock Lesnar’s limited dates. Maybe on the way out, Brock can put over Roman Reigns WITHOUT the title on the line.
Great Puma: Brock Lesnar. If rumors of Brock heading back to Dana-Ville are true, Brock Lesnar should leave the WWE after losing his title to Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania. This keeps Brock looking strong and allows him to come back on favorable terms, if and when he decides to come back. It would be bad business for Cena to win in Philadelphia on Sunday. There’s little doubt that the Philly crowd will drop a giant turd on any finish that doesn’t involve Seth Rollins or Brock Lesnar leaving the ring with the WWE title around their waists. I don’t know what they do with Cena for Wrestlemania and I don’t care. Brock vs. Bryan, and Sting vs. HHH is a strong pair of main events to build ‘Mania around.

2015 Royal Rumble Match
Great Puma: Daniel Bryan. This Rumble is Bryan’s to lose. He’s the only wrestler on the roster that receives a superstar pop. The writing for Roman Reigns set Reigns back at least a year before he should ever really be considered as a top guy. I think Bryan vs. Brock has a certain buzz to it and there’s no better way to pass the torch than for Bryan win the Rumble, then go over the Beast Incarnate in the main event at Wrestlemania. That’s the only finish to the Rumble that the Philly crowd will be 100% behind. I’ll be on the lookout for the “Bryan Wins or We Riot” sign.
Mascara De Fuego: Daniel Bryan. Bryan as been the only person whose even bought up wanting to win the Rumble more than once on TV. He’s the only option that makes sense. People wanted to see him win the Rumble last year and got cheated out of that, I think we all still want to see him do that. Bryan making a return from being injured is the only thing saving WrestleMania’s main event. The WWE keeps looking for a Cena-replacement but what they don’t realize is that if that is what they are focusing on, they are doomed to fail. Daniel Bryan IS your main eventer. Now, as much as I think a match between him and Rollins would be a solid main event, I do think the bigger story would be Bryan taking on Brock Lesnar for the Title. How much more could that prove Bryan’s main event spot if its HE who finally takes down the man who broke the Undertaker’s streak… something to think about.

WWE Tag Team Title Match
Uso’s vs. The Miz and Mizdow
Mascara De Fuego: Uso’s. The match will be good but we’ve seen it multiple times and the match has played out the same each time with the same spots and move sets… Slow to start with Miz taking control of one of the Uso’s… Mizdow reenacts the match from the apron… the Uso’s do a couple of highspots to the outside… Miz and Mizdow have a miscue that costs them the match. End of story.
Great Puma: Miz & Mizdow. Naomi isn’t a part of Total Divas anymore so I don’t think the Uso’s are high on the WWE’s short list of priorities. MizdowMania is still going strong so why not send the Philly crowd home happy.

The New Age Outlaws vs. The Ascension
Great Puma: The Ascension. I have faith in the WWE that they won’t completely bury the Ascension just yet. There’s no better way to get some heat on a new team than to have them go over an aging tag team way past its prime. Right?
Mascara De Fuego: New Age Outlaws. With the way the Ascension has been treated since they got “called up”, I don’t see why they would even bother having them go over the Outlaws. Maybe they are setting up a big Mania match against them and maybe Demolition or maybe they are just another couple of guys paired together on the roster. Man, why would anyone want to be called up from NXT when that is the brand to watch!

The Bella Twins vs. Paige and Natalya
Mascara De Fuego: Bella’s. That’s all I gotta say about that.
Great Puma: Paige and Natalya. I like Paige. I want to see Paige win. Yes, this is my obligatory full mark pick.

Kick-Off Show: Elimination Match
Adam Rose, Tyson Kidd & Cesaro vs. The New Day
Great Puma: Big E. This is the New Day’s last chance to get over. Why not give them a W here.
Mascara De Fuego: Tyson Kidd (lone survivor). Might have some cools spots in the match but at the end of the day, Kidd will be the only one left.
