Countdown to WWE Royal Rumble 2016: What if Undertaker 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

Let’s make this simple: Undertaker walking into WrestleMania 32 as WWE World Heavyweight Champion in the twilight of his career would be huge. If ‘Taker enters the 2016 Royal Rumble match, a match he’s no stranger to winning, he’d immediately become a heavy favorite to claim Roman Reigns’ title. With all he’s accomplished in 25 years, what match isn’t he a stranger to? Every Superstar in the contest should hope they don’t hear The Dead Man’s chilling ‘GONG’ follow an entry countdown.
