Here, we break down what lies in store for each legendary wrestler, come next week's Royal Rumble.
Goldberg headbutted a door on his way to the ring and when he finally began to discuss the Royal, Rumble, he struggled to get his words out.
It is known that Royal Rumble is the most anticipated event of PPV (Pay per Year) in the Calendar year. Lawler continued, "and I'm also going to be doing, I'm also going to do, I guess they have a two-hour pre-show now for the Royal Rumble". Careers have been launched by the results of Royal Rumble matches, and no other event in the WWE calendar holds the power to shake up the status quo so thoroughly, once each year.

During the previous brand split era, the victor of the Royal Rumble was always faced with a choice. The Demon King defeated Rollins to become the inaugural WWE Universal Champion at Summerslam previous year. Injury has forced Balor to sit out on matches since picking up the Universal Title at SummerSlam.
"It's more than just a physical struggle", he agreed.
Do you think Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn will ever meet at WrestleMania? The Royal Rumble is fast approaching and fans should stay tuned for more developments. I did notice that nobody left either after Smackdown ended. "It's going to be me, Michael Cole, and Corey Graves and it should be a lot of fun". "It was a very hard process".
The main reason I believe #Undertaker will win is because he appeared on both RAW & Smackdown these past two months. Vince McMahon likes to "spread out" his big draws on Wrestlemania cards.
Only time will tell, and whether good or bad.I'll be watching and critiquing.
Like, dudes such as Marty Jannetty were never getting the massive push on this random night (that he deserved!). "It happened so fast for me", he recalled.
That might help explain why he had a hard time remembering his lines.
So caught up in the moment was he that the celebratory fireworks caught Rollins off guard, he said. As a life-time Undertaker fan, he's my obvious pick. Since that night, Rollins has had one thing on his mind: revenge. "He was the guy who nearly fired me when I was in NXT and then basically was a mentor of mine and turned his back on me when he saw something better and shinier in Kevin Owens". So, it might be that he will get crowned with the Universal championship, soon. I'd only do it because I need the money. The WWE universe has been begging for a heel turn from reigns for quite some time, but now is the ideal opportunity to do it. "It's pandemonium, man. That's how I like it".
Seth Rollins has recently pulled off a face-turn in order to build up a program with Triple H leading into Wrestlemania. The Undertaker, Brock Lesnar and Goldberg all have to be considered at the top of the heap, mostly because there seems to be more options with any of the three at Mania.
Far more likely is that it will be a case of close, but no cigar for Taker and that the likes of Baron Corbin, Braun Strowman or another New Era star will earn his legendary wrath. He ran Styles down with every insult in the book, claiming Styles was just another guy who claimed to hate him but secretly wanted to be him. "There's all sorts of little prizes along the way in this match that you could possibly be a part of on your road to winning the Rumble and hopefully main eventing WrestleMania". It's setup enough, so I'm not going to pick either one of those guys. But right now I like where we're at. But I suppose I'll wait to fight that battle another day. All we can hope for is that this is the year WWE makes up for its past 3 Royal Rumbles, and we'll have our excitement realized.
