WWE Royal Rumble 2017: Brock Lesnar Eliminating Goldberg And 5 Things That Must Happen
January 3, 2017 - WWE
WWE Royal Rumble is bringing out a large stars, including Goldberg, Brock Lesnar and maybe even Triple H and The Undertaker.
That competence be a necessity, too.
According to F4WOnline.com (h/t WrestleZone), WWE has seen a pointy dump in seductiveness in a new pay-per-views, a bad pointer for a association streamer into a Royal Rumble:
The many new emanate of The Wrestling Observer, found during F4WOnline.com, speculates that this year’s WWE Roadblock PPV is stability a trend of disappearing fan seductiveness in WWE PPV events, expected due to a association holding dual events per month.
The seductiveness seemed stronger for Roadblock compared to WWE TLC this year, however Roadblock usually generated 100,000 searches on Google, that is about half a common turn for a non big-four PPV. This year’s WWE TLC PPV didn’t even register in a Google hunt category.
The good news, however, is that Royal Rumble tends to be a start of WWE’s best programming any year, and a association will have plenty event to right a boat during a PPV by reigniting engaging in a product that has mostly depressed prosaic as of late. With a Royal Rumble being a initial step on a highway to WrestleMania, a initial PPV of 2017 should furnish a series of noted moments that emanate some many indispensable hum and excitement.
But will it? Here are 5 things that contingency occur during Royal Rumble in sequence to puncture WWE out of a new slump.
Kevin Owens Purposely Eliminates Chris Jericho
It appears as if WWE is saving a unavoidable compare between Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens for WrestleMania 33.
Thus, a many judicious approach to get there is for Owens to dump a Universal Championship to Roman Reigns (ugh) after Jericho incidentally costs Owens a compare and afterwards for KO to lapse a preference by intentionally expelling Jericho from a Royal Rumble match. This would set adult a non-title hitch between a dual on a grandest theatre of them all.
JeriKO has been a many interesting thing on Raw since a code split, yet they’ve left as distant as they can go as friends. The separate contingency come soon, and a Royal Rumble PPV is a best time and place to do it, paving a approach for what would be one of a many expected matches during WrestleMania.
Triple H Returns, Eliminates Seth Rollins
Like it or not, Triple H vs. Seth Rollins is probably a close to take place during WrestleMania 33, and with Rollins having, during best, a slim possibility to win a Royal Rumble, his coming in a hitch competence as good be used as a matter to lead to a strife with Triple H.
Rollins has been dropping spirit after spirit that he’ll be confronting Triple H soon, and Triple H total to be a “surprise” entrant who, many like during this year’s show, plays a vital purpose in a Royal Rumble. If WWE wants to go a somewhat opposite track in 2017, Triple H could simply meddle in a compare but being an tangible entrant and afterwards means Rollins to get eliminated.
Ultimately, though, a idea is a same: Finding a approach to get to Triple H vs. Rollins, that will be a marquee compare during WrestleMania 33 unless something variable happens.
