Hard to believe that since Rey Mysterio won the Rumble in 2006, only once in the last 16 years has a Superstar who had never previously been a WWE World Champion won the Rumble match and then went on to win at WrestleMania. And, unfortunately for Drew McIntyre, that one instance was in an empty warehouse – not exactly a “WrestleMania moment”.
Assuming that Cody Rhodes and Sami Zayn are the odds on favorites to win the Rumble this weekend, does history dictate that Roman’s probably walking out of WrestleMania still champion?
P.S. Does ANYBODY else have even a semi-realistic chance of winning on Saturday? Even a snowball’s chance that HHH figures WrestleMania is already sold out and uses this as an opportunity to push someone else in a big upset?
It’s gotta be either Sami or Cody and given the rating that Sami drew on Monday you have to take a shot with him.
