As I type this, it is 11:19PM, January 4th, 2016. Monday Night Raw ended a few minutes ago. Roman Reigns successfully defended his WWE World Heavyweight Championship in a match with Sheamus. While the show was going off the air, Vince McMahon announced that Roman Reigns will defend that same title again, in the actual Royal Rumble match. The last time the title was up for grabs in that match was 1992, and Ric Flair won it.
Will Roman make it through all twenty-nine of the other men, and keep his gold? For the first time in a few months, I am hyped for a PPV to happen, so I can find out. It’s crazy, I haven’t cared about one in a long time. The shows have been #booty. With this announcement, the 2016 Royal Rumble could make for some compelling television.
