Poll: The Rumble

First, I wanted to give a HUGE thanks to the 40 lovely folks that entered the Kick-Out!! Rumble, when I came up with the idea, I really thought we would struggle to even get 20 entrants and I'd have to double up the numbers, but sure enough, you guys were awesome and filled every spot in a little over 24 hours. Can't wait to see who will take over the Opening Bell on a future episode of Kick-Out!! Radio.

And that brings us to this week's poll, it's very simple: who do you think will win the 2011 Royal Rumble match? Vote in the poll to the right of your screen and feel free to discuss the topic in the comments section.


  1. I say it again. A Kong will win it.

  2. I can see the winner being either John Cena, CM Punk or Triple H. As you mentioned on Kick-Out Radio last week, a Triple H victory would be stretching the whole "shock Royal Rumble return" factor to breaking point. It might be wishful thinking, but I'm confident that WWE won't decide to go down that route for the third time in four years.

    My guess is that CM Punk will win by last eliminating John Cena with the help of Nexus, much in the same way that Randy Orton used the numbers advantage given to him by Legacy in 2009 to win. With that said, that would be another case of retreading history far too soon for my liking, so I'm hoping WWE can come up with something more original and innovative instead.

  3. WWE really needs to get behind a face and putting John Morrison over here to face The Miz at Wrestlemania would be a great way to do this. Plus, a legit feud between the two would be nice instead of the two or three mini-feuds they've had up to this point.

    Wouldn't mind Sheamus getting the duke in the Rumble either, but I think he'll be the one to break the elimination record before he gets tossed out by Triple H.

  4. I would really like to see a new face win as well, but it just doesn't seem likely with just over a week left before the event takes place. In the case of Morrison, I don't think he's quite been built up enough in recent weeks to suggest that he's being seen by WWE as that next breakout superstar. Yes, he's been involved in some great matches, but his mic time has been fairly restricted and his push hasn't really reached a new level since his feud with Sheamus began. Perhaps next year will be the time when WWE finally gets behind a new crowd favourite in the Royal Rumble build-up, but it doesn't seem to be likely this year.
