Okay, I'm just going to throw this out there right now. At Royal Rumble CM Punk WILL NOT lose the WWE Championship. The reason why? Chris Jericho. Everyone is assuming that Chris Jericho will be going against CM Punk at WrestleMania. Everyone also assumes that John Cena VS. The Rock will be for the WWE Championship. In my thought process, they are wrong.
If I'm not mistaken, Chris Jericho said he won't come back unless he does something huge. What is more huge than helping CM Punk maintain his Championship at Royal Rumble just for Chris Jericho to WIN the event itself? See... Jericho has never won the Royal Rumble. NEVER. So, my theory is, Jericho won't really say much the next few weeks. He'll talk about the Royal Rumble at most. During the CM Punk VS. Dolph Ziggler match at Royal Rumble we already know Johnny Ace will undoubtedly try to "screw" CM Punk out of the WWE Championship but it's my theory that Jericho will interrupt the match on CM Punk's behalf and allow him to maintain the Strap going into Elimination Chamber in February. When it comes to that particular event, Jericho will help CM Punk keep the Championship again.
This will lead into their feud at WrestleMania where the "Best In The World" feud will commence. It will be for the WWE Championship and Chris Jericho will win it. Now, even though Jericho will be helping Punk, there's no doubt in my mind that their verbal war will be throughout the whole thing. Their feud will have a slow burn for a few months leading into WrestleMania and maybe the PPV afterward. All I know is that this makes a lot of sense.... at least in my mind anyway. Does anyone agree on this? Please leave your thoughts below!
