This Sunday from Phoenix, Arizona is the most anticipated Royal Rumble in the history of the pay-per-view. The road to WrestleMania begins on Sunday night. We will finally have the WWE Championship match between CM Punk and the Rock. The Rumble match will give us some indication as the direction WWE is going towards WrestleMania.
I consider this pay-per-view one of the most enjoyable and difficult to predict. The WWE title match is 50/50, it could go either way. While there are only a few favorites to win the Rumble, it is still difficult to predict.
However, I will do my best and with that here are my predictions for WWE Royal Rumble 2013.
Preshow: U.S. Champion Antonio Cesaro vs. The Miz
This Sunday prior to Royal Rumble, Antonio Cesaro will defend his U.S. title against the Miz.
This match has been building for a while so it should not come as a surprise that this match is happening at Royal Rumble. The only issue I have is that it is on the preshow and not on the main show.
WWE could have had a Divas Championship match or Royal Rumble qualifying match as their preshow instead and moved the U.S. title to the main show.
In any case, I still don’t think it is time for Cesaro to lose his title. He did win the belt during the preshow of SummerSlam, but he has become too big of a superstar to lose it during a preshow.
Also, the Miz has been improving his character as a babyface, but he has not become such a major player that he should be the one to dethrone Cesaro.
Winner: Antonio Cesaro (Still United States Champion)
