*the surprise legend appearances. Tatanka is under a Legends contract, but I won't get my hopes up. I'd like to see him, or Scott Hall as Razor Ramon, or Sid, DDP or Vader show up as a surprise.


I stand by my comments before last year's Rumble for this year's.

Quote:

*It will be fun to see Brock Lesnar mix it up with guys they'll never book him against in regular matches since their names aren't The Undertaker, John Cena or Triple H. I'd love to see Lesnar throw The Miz into the crowd, a la Bigelow/Spike Dudley. And then gorilla press slam onto thumbtacks. And then piledrive him onto a railroad spike.


Also these comments.

Really real predictions:

A New Day member will be one of the first two so they can do their intro thing. Cass may be the other one for the same reason.

Only slightly less real predictions:

Trump builds the wall too fast and it accidentally winds up bisecting the ring mid-match. The competitors are unsure how to proceed and just exit the ring. WWE shuts down forever the next day. Vince McMahon then chokes his wife with a chord*, kills a sleeping Shane McMahon with a stunner, and then hangs himself in his weight room. The fate of his dogs will be revealed via text.

I just read somebody's "5 legends that should make a surprise appearance in the Rumble" article and one of them was Dusty Rhodes. I don't see that happening.


Real predictions:

The Revival and Samoa Joe will be this year's NXT surprise entrants.

Kurt Angle will be a legend surprise entrant.

Goldberg will have a crimson mask before he hits the ramp.

And this is what it'll look like.

Somehow the odds-on favorite to win the Rumble right now is Randy Orton.

We all know I won't get my Tatanka wish. Take him out and put in Tye Dillinger at #10.

Top Five Things I learned While Watching Royal Rumbles

1. The faster you go, the more time you waste.
2. Rick Martel and Carlos Colon are the same person.
3. When Repo Man emerges from the curtain, he isn't sure which direction the ring is in.
4. Any Fred Ottman personality will be unable to refrain from throwing himself over the top rope.
5. You're a complete idiot if your gameplan isn't to hide outside the ring for about an hour and then sneakily toss the alleged winner when he isn't looking. Because apparently that's not against the rules.

Come, now. The referees emphatically urged Chris Jericho to get back in the ring. They were pointing at the ring and then Chris Jericho and then the ring again, and everything. And Jericho's plan would have worked, if he hadn't gotten back inside the ring.

Forget lack of surprises. It just dawned on me that SD tag champs American Alpha didn't even get spots in the Rumble. I mean, whose spots could they have taken though? Certainly not James Ellsworth or Roman Reigns, who was already on the show in a 30 minute title match.

One of the guys was certain about Tye Dillinger. Otherwise, I never saw any of those Royal Rumble surprises coming. And this was my "surprised" face:

"Joe? Hey, I know people were really excited for you to debut in the Rumble, but I think we've got something better. You are going to get to play Triple H's henchman in his feud with Seth Rollins."

I should have saved the link and now I can't remember where I saw it, but somebody compiled a bunch of reactions to Roman coming in at #30 and maybe some of 'em were staged, but a few of the "HAHAH ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME"s seemed genuine to me.

Yeah, funny stuff. Never dawned on me some of it might be fake. Here it is.

Actually, that was a sequel to the one I saw. Here's the first one.

My favorites aren't the "WHAT!" reactions. My favorites are the deflated "yeah of course they would do this" ones.
