People who I want to win the Rumble and who I’d like them to face at WM
Finn Balor vs. Kevin Owens or Roman Reigns - The story would be that Finn is reclaiming what he lost due to injury. Finn & KO have history and that could add to this. Finn Balor vs. Roman Reigns have a slight bit of history as well. Finn beat Reigns to become #1 contender at SummerSlam to face Seth Rollins for the new Universal title which he won. That would also be a match you’ve only seen once and haven’t seen in a long time.
Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens or (heel Roman Reigns) - Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens, enough said. Sami Zayn is a natural underdog baby face. A heel Roman Reigns could be a strong monster threat.
Chris Jericho vs. Kevin Owens - This has been building and building. I’m not sure if the Universal title is necessary for this feud or even winning the Rumble. I think if KO loses the Universal title to Reigns, he should tell Y2J that he deserves to be United States champion because he also won the United States championship when it was a 2v1 handicap match against Reigns.
Bray Wyatt vs. AJ Styles - I am pretty confident we’ve never seen this match. I’m also not sure who would be the face or who would be the heel, all I know is, it’ll be good.
—– I do think someone from RAW is going to win the Rumble because there has been pretty much 0 hype or talk from anyone on Smackdown talking about it aside from Bray but he’s probably going to fight Orton at Wrestlemania anyway.
I haven’t watched NXT in months but I hope to expect 2 out of 3 of either Samoa Joe, Shinsuke Nakamura, or Tye Dillinger.
