Royal Rumble is the most interesting match types WWE produces every year. From surprising returns to legends appearing in the ring once again, this show has it all for you.

While the winner can challenge any champion of his choosing at Wrestlemania, many feuds in 'The Showcase of Immortals' have begun from the rivalry between the competitors in the Royal Rumble. Not to forget the most recent one when Roman Reigns and the Undertaker main-evented Wrestlemania 33. It can all start from this show.

Here we look at three face-offs which might take place on January 28th and set the tone for a Wrestlemania match.


#3 Samoa Joe vs. John Cena

After Rhyno choked out to Samoa Joe and announced his participation at the royal rumble, he promised to eliminate Cena. This itself is an indication that the creative is looking forward to that match.

Cena and Joe would have a face-off to the delight of fans with Michael Cole and JBL citing their achievements in WWE and independent circuit. Cena would eliminate Joe and add fuel to his fire.

Joe's heel work is appreciated a lot by the WWE fans and with both being great talkers they can build a good storyline. They both have a similar style of wrestling as well and could be Samoan's first 5-star match in the WWE.

If we don't get to see the dream match between Undertaker and Cena, the only alternative to book Cena is this one. While Joe has proved that he can have great feuds with established WWE stars like Lesnar and Reigns in short time, it would be interesting to see how he does against John Cena.
