  1. AJ Starr says:

    So with 25 names confirmed, only 2 have a single shot of being booked to win; Cena and Sheamus.

    Why crank it up to 40 if they’re just gonna fill it with jobbers?

    Perhaps better booking would help PPV buys instead of publicity stunts or screwing with tradition.

  2. Mike says:

    i hope jomo wins!?!

    Really AJ Starr? What about CM Punk, Rey Mysterio, Wade Barrett, John Morrison? They are jobbers? I don’t get why people complain about WWE so much.. Honestly, its pay-per-view.. You have to pay to watch it so if you don’t like it, don’t watch it. Simple. We all miss the attitude era, but if you don’t like WWE, watch TNA and be entertained by has-beens and never-weres.

  4. Walter says:

    i agree with matt AJ u must be an idiot to think sheamus and cena are the only two that could be booked to win theirs plenty of guys their even alberto del rio i love this guy! 😛 my vote is triple h to return and win the rumble

  5. AJ Starr says:

    Punk is in a major storyline with Cena, he’s not going to win. Barrett has no chance either, because WWE has already dropped the ball with him several times. Morrison?

    Morrison would be actual good booking and a surprise that no one would expect, which is why you can rule him out.

    And don’t play the WWE vs. TNA BS. Bad booking is bad booking, and WWE is on a decade-long losing streak.

  6. Matt says:

    At the end of the day, WWE still makes money and people still watch so they don’t care about people who complain about bad bookings. The Royal Rumble is the best PPV of the year cause the audience never knows the order of the entrants, so it’s surprising. The WWE TNA is a matter of opinion but come on, everyone knows it’s a matter of time until TNA is done like WCW and ECW. Both of those companies were ten times more popular than TNA is now, so how do they have a chance?

  7. Anony-mouse says:

    Cena IS the favorite to win this since it’s a HISTORIC 40-man Rumble… I hate Cena like no other, but any chance WWE gets to further make him make history, they take it… It’s the first 40-man Royal Rumble, so they’ll make Cena win just so he’ll forever be in the history books as the FIRST man to win the First ever 40-man Royal Rumble. That way even if they have another 40-man Rumble, Cena will still be the first to have won it…. I friggin hope I’m wrong, but I have a terrible feeling that I’m not.

  8. Ok says:

    Nice, I like the idea of adding 10 more people to tha Rumble… even though AJ Starr, as butt-hurt & mad as he may be, does have a decent point.
