After an uneventful TLC PPV, the WWE heads to Phoenix for the 26th annual Royal Rumble PPV on Sunday, January 27th, 2012.
And so without further delay, here's what to expect.
THE ROYAL RUMBLE MATCH WILL NOT BE THE MAIN EVENT
Although the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match has closed out the Royal Rumble PPV for much of its 26-year existence, don't expect the Rumble match itself to get the most publicity heading into the PPV. Instead, that honor goes to the highly anticipated CM Punk versus The Rock match for the WWE Championship.
A NEW CHALLENGER FOR THE BIG SHOW?
After defeating Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Championship at TLC,
the Big Show's feud with the Celtic Warrior seems to be over as a new challenger awaits.
The obvious choice is Randy Orton. Despite rumors of a heel turn, Orton is the second most-popular babyface on the WWE roster as the Apex Predator would be the perfect opponent for the World's Largest Athlete.
A.J. & DOLPH--WWE'S NEW POWER COUPLE?
After costing Cena the MITB briefcase at TLC, expect A.J. Lee to cut a promo on RAW saying that she used Cena to get noticed in the WWE and then announce that she and Dolph Ziggler are an item. How will Cena react to the news?
