There isn't really a clear front runner for who will win the Rumble this year. That could make the night more intriguing. I'll give a shot in the dark and pick Jericho to win.

My prediction is that Cena beats AJ for the title, and Taker wins the rumble finally setting up Taker v Cena at 'Mania.

Allow me to fantasybook for a while... Cena cut a semi-heelish promo on Smackdown, he turns full heel vs Styles at the Rumble and he cheats to beat Taker at Mania... I mean the reactions to that would be the biggest of a heel turn in recent memory

I really hope they don't make Goldberg champion again. I can't think of a better way to devalue the incredibly talented roster they have right now than to put the belt on a fifty year old who hasn't wrestled regularly since 2004.

WWE loves having part time guys stomp on their nightly roster, so I'm not surprised by anything they do anymore.

Goldberg ain't winning the Universal Title or the Rumble. Whoever eliminates him (either Lesnar or Reigns, cause he ain't beating Owens) will face him at Mania.

I'm looking forward to seeing John Cena win the wwe title from AJ Styles for the 16th time
tieing with Ric Flair but if AJ wins or not instead he had a nice little run with the wwe championship
and he had been a nice defender of the belt :)

I will be watching the Rumble again this year, the one PPV I actually have interest in watching. If there is interest, I'll handle the Rumble lottery this year.

Cena does not need the title. Just giving him it because he is cena is just wrong. Baron Corbin,miz ,ziggler ,Ambrose and Bray Wyatt all deserve to be in the title hunt before him as they have been they guys who made smackdown where it is now.

A friendly request to please spoiler tag anything about the rumble that is based on information released by dirtsites. For example, there is apparently a new favourite to win the rumble. I didn't click on who that was and even though it's not something confirmed, it's still potentially a spoiler.

Speculation and guessing is cool and fine, but if it's based off information from insiders, I think it would be fair to everyone who wants to be spoiler free for it to be hidden.

Logic tells us that Samoa Joe might be an entrant into the rumble this year. That isn't based off anything from an insider (that I've seen at least), just the logic of his feud with Shinsuke ending and him not being on NXT since. Suggesting or discussing that doesn't need a spoiler tag.
