What are your thoughts of WWE putting 40 superstars in the rumble match?

Overkill. And why mess with a concept that works? The Rumble is one of their most popular events, so for me it just doesnt make any sense.

Exactly. At some points, the match might be filled with jobbers that no one cares about.

I'm a bit on both sides, i believe that it could get to crowded with people no care about, but I also want to wait and see how WWE handles this.

Oh, I totally agree. It could possibly work, but I just have my doubts. I'm crossing everything, and hoping for the best! :)

do you really think they would extend the rumble to get more jobbers in? let me answer that for you HELL NO if they are expanding it i can only assume it's because they feel the need to make room for more stars or because it will play into the mania build up but either way more ppl for me equals more excitement so i like it

I don't see anything wrong with 10 extra guys having the opportunity to work a PPV. It's not like the match isn't usually a clusterfuck, anyways; now it's just going to be a little bit more of a clusterfuck. Nothing worth getting upset about, really.

Not counting the 4 people already booked in matches, injured superstars, and Michael Tarver(hasn't been seen and is healed), we have 44 people who can enter the Rumble if only using main roster superstars, hopefully this is WWE's way of giving everyone a pay per view match.

01-17-2011, 03:43 PM
l hope Tripple H is not in the Royal Rumble, l think everyone or maybe most wrestling fans is waiting for "time to play the Game" but it would be more exciting if he were to just come out and go after Sheamus, it would be a good way to eliminate Sheamus and kick off their road to WrestleMania. Chris Jericho, if he comes back can basically do what he wants, he really doesn't have to work for that main event spot anymore, the fans want to see him. Christian on the other hand, he needs and deserves to be elevated. Hunter, Jericho, Undertaker and even John Cena really don't need a title anymore to be considered a main event draw.

It will accomodate all the Nexus members from Raw and Smackdown, throw in a couple of NXT rookies, a few veterans/legends and a returning superstar and 40 can easily be filled, and I agree seeing someone enter at number 1 and go over the 1 hour would be impressive.

Maybe this is the 'E's way of topping last year's glorious promos by Punk?

Personally I think the more entrants will lower the time between entrances, and also improve the story of the rumble (Punk goes on a roll, here comes Cena/Barrett, DB comes in and eliminates them all</dream>). Thankfully Orton almost definitely be in the Rumble, so a Jericho return doesn't turn into what Jericho/Edge was last year, instead with a less interesting cast.

Just go to the classic WCW style of the three rings and 60 like someone said before.

40 doesnt bother me, it just means more superstars and more potential for legends to sneak in. I see no problem with that

KJ PUNK
01-17-2011, 05:38 PM
To be honest, they probably should've uped it to 40 in 2002 after the Invasion angle. They had a HUGE roster then and it easily could've been more exciting.

It wasn't so long ago we were complaining about WWE having such a lack of depth in their roster now they're pretty stacked. Not all quality wrestlers but still. So when you take into account the inevitable title matches, even if they only have WWE and WHC title matches and NOTHING else besides the Rumble, that's 44 wrestlers and that's not counting Divas (obviously).

I wonder if they'll try squeezing a couple of 'legends' in there? Or fall back on NXT guys?

Also, let's not forget, all those old firsts and records and such will be safe from being eclipsed. Like, winning it from number 1 will take on a different meaning and so all those old records, such as Kane's amount of eliminations won't mean any less

To me, it gets the whole roster involved, and it can set up a ton of storylines down the line. To me, it's a good idea.

Some will complain no matter what the WWE does. They're damned if they do, damned if they don't.

What's so magical about the number 30, anyways? And why are people so terrified of change? I really fail to see why a big deal is being made out of this, like, at all. It's so silly and insignificant.

My top 3 candidates I think should win the Rumble.

1. CM Punk- Nexus works together and helps Punks to win the match
2. Wade Barrett- Same as Punk
3. Alberto Del Rio- He is red hot right now, a win at the Rumble would make sense and build him up even more to become a top star

The reason I don't think Christian or Triple H should not win the Rumble is that the past few years have been the injured returning superstar winning the Rumble, to me they need to try a new idea.

Yeah, it's the so-called wrestling 'purists' or whatever they're called who never want anything to change. They are the "It's Still Real To Me Guy" brigade. Of course if things didn't change, they'd complain about and/or soon lose interest in it.

On that thought, I believe this is how it might work, given that there will be only 2 male matches outside of the Royal Rumble- The WWE title match, and the World Heavyweight title match.

This is how I think the PPV will be(not in any order):

WWE Championship
The Miz (c) vs. Randy Orton

World Heavyweight Championship
Edge (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler

Divas Championship
Natalya (c) vs. Melina

40-man Royal Rumble match
Participants:

1) Daniel Bryan
2) Primo Colon
3) David Hart Smith
4) Tyson Kidd
5) David Otunga
6) Husky Harris
7) Michael McGillicutty
8) CM Punk
9) Sheamus
10) Ted Dibiase
11) Zack Ryder
12) Santino Marella
13) Vladimir Kozlov
14) Mark Henry
15) John Morrison
16) Jey Uso
17) Jimmy Uso
18) Alberto Del Rio
19) Jack Swagger
20) Heath Slater
21) Justin Gabriel
22) Ezekiel Jackson
23) Wade Barrett
24) The Big Show
25) Chavo Guerrero
26) Chris Masters
27) Drew McIntyre
28) Kane
29) Tyler Reks
30) Rey Mysterio
31) Kofi Kingston
32) Cody Rhodes
33) Trent Barreta
34) Alex Riley(maybe, if hes not injured by Orton in the WWE title match)
35) The Great Khali(assuming hes brought back to compete as as a Royal Rumble attraction, like every year)
36) Return from injury/Surprise entrant
37) Return from injury/Surprise entrant
38) Return from injury/Surprise entrant
39) Return from injury/Surprise entrant
40) Return from injury/Surprise entrant

I left 5 spots open because I believe that WWE will have some major returns in the Rumble. Also, like they do every year, theres a surprise entrant that isn't signed to a WWE contract. And sometimes, theres a shocking entrant eg. Beth Phoenix.

I believe that the spots may be taken by:

*Triple H- hes been at WWE events(not shown on tv) recently. He competed(lightly, but still competed) against ADR at a WWE Fan Appreciation Event, and appeared after the show ended at Tribute to the Troops for another DX reunion.
*Christian- he is clear to compete in January, before the Rumble, and is moving around just fine(he did an autograph signing at FCW 3 days ago).
*Maybe a diva? Beth Phoenix? Or possibly Kong?
*An entrant outside of WWE? No idea who it could be though
*Jerry Lawler? Ron Simmons?(in honor of the WCW-themed HOF)

Several years back, Christian had some headshots (which are glamour shots for actors/wrestlers) taken, and Vince said they were the worst he had ever seen. He then said, because of those pics, that Christian would never be main event material (Vince is superficial like that). And once Vince makes his mind up about something, that's pretty much that.

After thinking about it for a couple of hours and seeing peoples comments, i'm slowly warming up to the idea. At first i wasn't too cool with it, mainly because it's my favourite PPV, but also because i was worried the rumble itself would be too rushed. But on second thought i can see loads of potential in it, so i'm just hoping to be pleasantly surprised!
Still hoping for a Swagger win.... Although i know it wont happen.
I would also love to see Christian, Del Rio or Punk take it home. :)

I think thats out of the question. Because Jeff, and Christian are way over with the fans, so it must be something else that is keeping Vince from giving Christian the world title.

Entrant #40: THE GREAT MUTA!

He is alive. 46 is his age.

i hope ur right man...i really do....as i am gettin suick of wwe claiming they push young talent yet no one can get over or cena

So what was Cena before getting pushed to what he is now? Or how about current champions the Miz and Daniel Bryan?

Honestly, what's the big deal of adding 10 men to a match like the Rumble. It'll just make it longer which is always a good thing in my book.

01-17-2011, 09:20 PM
aye, no biggy at all, should still be good!! its not gna have any impact at all on the match - just a bit longer, more jobbyish quick eliminations, which aint gona matter because all of us know that darren young or whoever isnt going to win. i actually tried to count the entrants and i couldnt do it, there was too many wrestlers and then they go and increase it, good mind control freaky deaky shit there, cheers. i would like to see christian win it, but i dnt think it will happen tho. could be ADR, but could likely be one of the big 2 im unwillingly predicting, with an outside chance for cmpunk(to take on the person who beats miz for title) or john morrison(to take on miz for title, reignite their history). i would mark for a regal win major rager! or CAN U DIG IT SUCKAAAAA - booker t holy shit hes returned!!!! haha. or goldberg!!! edit. aah shit forgot about a return for the best in the world at what he does!!! love tht to happen also!!

It would be interesting for them to do a 40-man as a trial it at one royal rumble event. Perhaps in 2012 or any other year after. If they like how it goes, they can keep it that way and if they are not impressed then they can scrap the idea forever.

Meh, I like the idea of the 40 man Rumble. The only thing it'll change is the length of the match, and that'll be for the better anyway. There is gonna be like zero undercard for the ppv, but that's alright. Maybe they'll give both the championship matches 20+ minutes.

Now that the odds of winning the Royal Rumble are greater, 40:1, they will have a lot more wrestlers/jobbers. But we already know that. With 40 wrestlers it allows a lot more people to cheer for their favorite wrestler. Lets face it, we all have a favorite and someone always feels that their favorite wrestler should be champion.

If your favorite wrestler comes in at # 4 you think that he has no fighting chance in hell to win the RR unless he makes it to the end. So how can we get every fan excited thinking their favorite wrestler has a chance? The answer is easy, have them all make it to the end.

This will never happen, I know, but hey it is worth putting it on paper.

I wouldn't be surprised if Entry #1 smashes the implied odds to win it, just for the sheer novelty of breaking many RR records.

Yeah longest in quite a while. Longer than last year's Rumble, and longer than the Ironman match that Cena and Orton had in 2009.

I agree that returning winners is getting old, but I would approve if it happened like this:

Rey Mysterio's music hits, and there's a stall. Fake Rey Mysterio comes out in Mysterio like attire and a t-shirt and enters the match. The rumble draws on, and the impostor wins. The real Rey limps out pointing at the impostor after the match. He gets in the ring and confronts him, and Bam! He eats a Codebreaker. Impostor takes off his mask to reveal that he's Chris Jericho.

When I heard instead of 40 guys instead of 30 my first reaction was....meh.

Everyone is either really against it or really for it. Its JUST 10 EXTRA GUYS!

It's not like they'll fill those 10 spaces with anyone we want to see anyway.

The spots will just be used for stars they don't use much like Curt Hawkins or legends we've seen a million times since becoming legends. They'll be taken out pretty quickly and you won't even know they were there.

Also they call it the biggest royal rumble yet! Which in terms is just a big battle royal. Does anyone remember WCW World War III? 60 guys! Sure it wasn't a fantastic idea but my point is 30 to 40 is nothing. Get 20+ plus guys and they could have something.

I don't really care one way or another. IMO they only expanded it because they wanted to get all of the new Nexus guys in and that's 8 or 9 guys alone who weren't in it last year. But has anyone heard what the timing is going to be between entrants? I'm not positive but I think the early Rumbles were originally 2 minutes between entrants and then they shortened it to 90 seconds. I'm wondering if they are going to drop it to one minute since there are 10 more guys. My only concern about the extra guys has been that it's going to be guys who we really don't care that much about and if it's 90 seconds between entrants that's 15 minutes of extra time watching guys we don't care all that much about

Even though I'm half and half with the 40 man idea, it actually works in WWE's favor because this Royal Rumble might be the best royal rumble. Think about it, every other royal rumble ppv had more than just the World and WWE championship matches, they had grudge matches and midcard matches including the IC and U.S title defenses. And last year, was the last ECW championship bout where Zeke won. So now that it will be 40 men, all the rivalries will be in there and it will an unpredictable finish. Last year I predicted Edge would return and win, and he did. But now, it's so many possible returns that you don't know who could win.
