With HHH being, rumored original winner, out of the picture. I was hoping they might renew RVD light in the picture. I don't think we'll ever see again. I could be wrong though.

Undertaker couldn't be to far fetched but then again.

Cena...yes...Cena is going to retain.

Batista is going to retain.

Hardys/MNM...I actually say they give us the Hardys winning.

Lashley over Test
Batista over Kennedy
Cena over Umaga
MNM over the Hardys, and they have the rubber match in the feud at Wrestlemania. Does this match mean Jeff, Matt and Nitro are out of the Rumble?

The only people I can see winning the Rumble are Michaels or Undertaker. HBK might have the edge given that the PPV is in his hometown, and he might need a bit more of an angle to get himself a title shot since he's been seperate from Cena, whereas Undertaker has been interacting with Batista lately.

I don't know what is more disquieting -- the fact that the rest of the statue is missing, or that it has four toes.

I think that Orton or Edge will win the Rumble, and possibly due to shenanigans costing the other of the 2 the shot. Most likely Edge, but I'm not sure.

I kinda think they might lest Test win, to have Lashley regain at Mania, but who's to say?

I think Cena retains, and I think Batista retains, and MNM get some revenge on the Hardyz.

Might as well get my hope (read incorrect) prediction out of the way first:

Umaga over Cena to win the belt via Kev-interference by Federline. Rematch at Mania.
Batista over Kennedy (shame really)
Lashley over Test
MNM over Hardys

Undertaker wins the Rumble with a late number. Sets up Batista vs. Taker at Mania.

Undertaker wins the Rumble. Batista vs. Undertaker should headline Wrestlmania.

Umaga beats Cena.

Lashley beats Test (is this Extreme Rules?)

Batista beats Kennedy. Mr. Kennedy(PAUSE)Kennedy will be the champ within a couple of years (he's awesome in the ring, I think) but's Batista's time.

MNM beat Hardyz. That's the match I'm looking forward to the most.

I thought this was predictions, not wishful thinking. The WWE wouldn't even let Punk be the final four in the Elimination Chamber with five other ECW wrestlers. I doubt he's going to be one of the final four out of 29 other Raw/Smackdown/ECW talent. I hope you're right though.

I wish the Royal Rumble World Title stipulation was done away with. As long as the winner faces the World Champion at WM it pretty much has to be HBK and UT and that's not really all that fun. I'd rather it was like Money in the Bank and they just got a title shot at some point in time. Then the Royal Rumble winner could be a midcard guy and he could ask for a title shot at a minor ppv and WWE can just test the waters with that wrestler like they did with Edge. Then again I'm probably doing some wishful thinking now. Even if the Royal Rumble wasn't for the WM main event they'd probably still have either HBK, HHH, Flair, UT, Orton, or Edge win since they are the only wrestlers that exist.

Is Rikishi still wrestling anywhere these days? He'd be a good face "legend" who would probably get a pretty good pop as a Royal Rumble entry.

I can totally see them doing a Rated RKO vs. HBK angle throughout the Rumble, with faces that would make logical sense chipping in to help out HBK (while heels that would make logical sense chipping in to aid Rated RKO).

Punk is, for now, ECW's #2 face. With Lashley not in the match, a Punk appearance in the final four would make people go "Hey, what is this ECW thing?"

Shawn Michaels wins his third Rumble. Cena and Michaels looks like a very interesting match.

Cena over Umaga by making him knocking himself out somehow by running into something

Lashley over Test because test flatout sucks. Dominator.

Mr. Kennedy over Batista by DQ with some taker interference

MNM over Hardys with Matt being taken out during the match setting up two on one

Ain't no way never that Jericho appears at the Rumble.

Batista, Lashley and Cena all retain, Cena and Umaga will have a bitchin' brawl, and MNM will get a win back from the Hardys. 'Taker wins the Rumble, as a)he's never won it before, b)they'll want him looking as strong as possible for 'Mania, and c)it's easier to set Michaels up as Cena's challenger through some kind of Rated RKO-heavy tournament shenanigans.

To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow

Rumble: Either Michaels or Orton. I'll bet on Orton, since I think Cena will retain; while Michaels/Cena might be a better match on paper, it's also face/face.

Cena defeats Umaga.

Kennedy and Batista go to a non-finish (Undertaker interference perhaps?) to set up No Way Out.

Lashley defeats Test.

MNM defeat Hardyz.

It is Royal. It is Rumble. It is the Royal Rumble!

Royal Rumble Its Ownself

Prediction: Undertaker. It makes the most sense for Edge/Randall/Shawn to joust over the Raw title shot for a little longer if everything on Raw is going where I think it's going (Shawn-Cena/The Rated RKOpowers EXPLODE), plus it gives Taker a boost into the main event that Shawn doesn't really need at the moment since he's doing a hell of a job doing it himself.


The Diesel Push: Khali
The Hour Of Power: Benoit
Garbage In, Garbage Out: The Miz

World Smackdown Title: Batista (c) vs. Mr. Kennedy

It'll be interesting to see what Kennedy is able to do in his first big event, espcially with someone like Batista, who isn't exactly setting the world on fire at the moment. Obviously Kennedy is going down, but a lot of his future is tied to this match.

Prediction: Batista retains.
WWE Raw Title: John Cena (c) v Umaga, Last Man Standing

It's almost a running joke about Cena's constant underdog booking at this point, but in a case such as this, it works like a motherfucker. Cena has apparantly taken his Memphis babyface selling lessons to heart this past week and seems to be more and more sure of his role each day. Expect Cena to get little to no offense in the first 10 minutes, only to make the big comeback at the end. That's the formula at its best.

Prediction: Cena retains.
Extreme Buck-Buck for the World Championship of West Philadelphia: Bobby Lashley (c) v Test.

Test's 8 year journey is about to be culminated. Although in the end this can go either way, and unless they're using Test as a go-between for someone else or a rematch, those are the only two reasons Test should win here. If booked properly this should safeguard the weaknesses of both at all costs.

Prediction: Test wins his first ECW championship
MNM vs The Hardy Boyz

While MNM might have a high standing at the moment, the one problem they have is that they managed to come along at a bad time for the division and don't have the same level of cred that the Harys have simply because the Hardys in their heyday had more and better compeititon. This is where MNM get brought up to their level if only for there to be even ground at WrestleMania.

Prediction: MNM wins
