The RAW, The BAD, & The UGLY (1/20/14)
The Raw The Big Show and Brock Lesnar
Show vs. Lesnar is very intriguing . The last time these two fought at a Royal Rumble it was 2003. These two had a good match and a better storyline. At Survivor Series Paul Heyman turned on Brock helping The Big Show beat Brock Lesnar taking the WWE title and in the process handing Lesnar his first loss via pinfall in the WWE. Fast forward to the Royal Rumble and Brock Lesnar has to defeat The Big Show who was now one of Paul Heyman’s clients, just to take part in the 30 man Royal Rumble. I'm expecting this to be another good match with Brock Lesnar winning and Paul providing Brock with a distraction. Regardless how this match turns out I don't believe you're going to get a boring let's match power for power match.
Bonus Raw Bautista’s return was exciting and should be good for business
The Bad John Cena vs Randy Orton Rematch
This storyline just doesn't gage my interest at all. I'd much rather see Kofi job another match to Alberto Del Rio than watch Cena/Orton rematch at the Royal Rumble. Matter of fact I would prefer to see Eva Marie headline the Royal Rumble. That's a lie, she is fine though; but I don't think Eva Marie can stomach her own matches. I didn't like how Kofi/Orton ended. I'm sitting there watching the match and couldn't figure out why Kofi would purposely hold on to Orton's leg to make sure Cena gets his hands on Orton, oh by the way Kofi your actions help get you disqualified and lose the match. It should had been written that Kofi got the win by a distraction. Who cares if Orton loses before The Royal Rumble. I think the loss last Monday already gave us an indication that Orton won't make it out of the Rumble WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
The Ugly The Usos
The Usos are hot right now, but instead of getting a title shot against The Rhodes at Royal Rumble, that opportunity goes to The “Old” New Age Outlaws. The Usos were just number one contenders! The only time The Usos have had a chance to win the titles was in a four way tag match at TLC. Once again the Usos are being overlooked. To be honest The “Old” New Age Out can still wrestle. But The Usos deserve a chance at the belts.
