Countdown to WWE Royal Rumble 2016: What if Brock Lesnar Wins?

We’re counting down to the Royal Rumble: a variation of the traditional Battle Royal match with a total of 30 competitors. Two WWE Superstars start in the ring, every 90 seconds thereafter another Superstar enters. A Superstar is eliminated when they’re thrown over the top rope and both feet touch the floor. Traditionally, the last remaining Superstar is guaranteed a championship opportunity at WrestleMania versus the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion. On Jan. 24th the Champion is required to defend his title in the Royal Rumble match; the first time its winner claims gold since Rumble ’92. | By Mr. Joe Walker

“The Beast” Brock Lesnar is unquestionably the favorite to win this year’s Royal Rumble. And if history again repeats itself, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship is as good as his. Winning Rumble ’03 by eliminating Undertaker, Brock went on to claim the title at WrestleMania 19. Ending Taker’s iconic undefeated streak at Mania 30 led to him decimating John Cena for the title the following Summer Slam. Brock finished off The Dead Man in supposedly their final battle at last year’s Hell in a Cell. Are you following the trend?
