WWE’s Five Best Choices To Win The 2017 Royal Rumble
January 23, 2017 - WWE
WWE Royal Rumble 2017 could go a tedious route, finale with a feat for The Undertaker, Goldberg or Brock Lesnar.
Or WWE can piquancy things adult by engagement a leader who both creates clarity for stream storylines, and yet, also builds to a future.
After all, Vince McMahon reportedly scrapped The Undertaker vs. John Cena during WrestleMania 33 given he is “looking during a long-term design and not usually a short-term.” He should be regulating a same proof when it comes to a Royal Rumble compare itself, too, regulating a ancestral conflict stately as a car to emanate new stars and ready for a contingent time when a stream tip stars are gone.
Here are a 5 best choices to win a 2017 Royal Rumble match, even yet WWE might not agree.
Braun Strowman has been Raw’s best requisitioned heel given a code split, and yet he’s positively not everyone’s crater of tea, it’s tough to repudiate that he’s usually softened over a final several months and gotten over big-time in a process.
WWE has a subsequent unbeatable beast on a hands in Strowman, whose skillset is closer to Kane’s than it is to that of The Great Khali. Many fans will find a reason to protest about Strowman and will contend that he’s “boring” or “slow” or “green,” though those same fans will also protest about WWE unwell to pull new stars.
Strowman has a commercial demeanour WWE loves and is creation vital strides in a ring. He will never be a Shawn Michaels or an AJ Styles, though there’s income to be done with an unstoppable behemoth operative during a tip of a label (not to discuss a boon that could come with it).
While Strowman isn’t a ideal choice to win a Royal Rumble, a greeting of startle and astonishment he perceived during a staredown with Brock Lesnar on final week’s Raw is a good pointer that he’s able of operative in a World pretension picture.
Perhaps a best probable story for WWE to tell during WrestleMania 33 is Kevin Owens vs. Chris Jericho for all a marbles.
It would be a conflict of Owens, who would still be holding a Universal Championship, opposite Jericho, a United States Champion, after Y2J wins a Royal Rumble match. The long-running storyline surrounding a JeriKO loyalty has centered roughly wholly around a Universal pretension and their query to keep it around a waist of Owens. Thus, it would usually be wise for a story to strech a consummate with Jericho vs. Owens for that title.
The best approach to get there is for Jericho to win a 30-man Rumble after Owens retains opposite Roman Reigns, that would give us a installed categorical eventuality with a low story to tell.
Former crony vs. former friend. Foe vs. foe. Title vs. title. It doesn’t get most bigger than that.
