Re: Wrestling Rumors Thread

Quote:
Last night, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson appeared to tease an appearance at the Royal Rumble by posting a photo online of himself in Philadelphia. Of course, the event will be held tonight at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. It was later reported by F4WOnline.com that Johnson is expected to appear at the event in some capacity.

According to MetsFan4Ever of Reddit.com, a former WWE employee who maintains contact with people in the organization, he was told in recent weeks that company officials have had serious discussions of Johnson making a surprise appearance in the Royal Rumble Match and ultimately winning it. This would lead to Johnson facing Brock Lesnar in the main event at WrestleMania 31 in Santa Clara, California.

MetsFan4Ever was also told that if the deal falls through, Johnson was willing to at least make an appearance on the show. This could include putting Roman Reigns over in a backstage segment.

He also says that WWE officials have considered having Bray Wyatt win the Royal Rumble Match. Many people in WWE have high hopes for Wyatt and "feel the sky is the limit for him."

MetsFan4Ever added there has been talks of Sheamus returning to WWE tonight in the Royal Rumble Match, but as of last night, he was at home in Florida.

Re: Wrestling Rumors Thread

Also in the case of a rock and Brock title match at mania I think a mitb cash in would be highly likely since neither guy should leave mania champion. A mitb cash in at mania would be awesome.

Re: Wrestling Rumors Thread

Anybody winning it but The Rock and I'd be happy. Even Reigns.

Use the Rumble to BUILD stars, not have THE BIGGEST STAR win. That makes no ****ing sense.

The strong majority of rumble winners have been relatively established stars... It all depends on how they use the winner. The Rock could win and have a well hyped match with Brock and still have Rollins come out of the night the big winner. A reigns lesnar match doesnt sell nearly as many network subscriptions as a brock-rock main event and you know it... the wwe's primary goal is still to put out their best possible attraction and you and i both know that isnt Reigns.

Re: Wrestling Rumors Thread

My comment was directed at Bray being heavily considered and how exactly high they are on him, which I knew they were already but.

Re: Wrestling Rumors Thread

Im really starting to get worried about the Royal Rumble winner being The Rock. I really think there is a chance there was a split between Reigns and Bryan and at the last minute they decided to back a truck of cash up to The Rock's house to have him win it

Spoiler for ..:
Looking at 5Dimes lines I'll be shocked if Reigns does not win.

I said it once and I'll say it again, the Rock is not winning the rumble. WWE isn't this stupid. And yes, it would be a stupid decision on their part if they went this route.

It is possible. Reigns win and The Rock comes out and puts him over with the crowd is probably what is gonna happen

Oh, it's possible. It's definitely possible.

But he's not going to win it. It's not something WWE would do and they aren't this dense.

It's also going to take a lot more than a guy who used to be a WWE employee saying WWE had been interested in doing something like this in regards to the Rock in the last few weeks to make me believe this is what's going to happen.

As of now it's either going to be Reigns or Bryan. If Lesnar ISN'T WWE champion after his match is over with, however, then that will be an entirely different story.
