5 most interesting storylines heading into the Royal Rumble
Will the Rumble live up to our expectations once again?
The Christmas period is over and we’ve officially entered 2018, and that can mean only one thing – the road to WrestleMania 34 is almost upon us. With thousands upon thousands of wrestling fans entering the final stages of preparations for their trip to New Orleans, it only makes sense for us to shift our focus to the big kickstarter for the next few months: the Royal Rumble.
The Rumble has always been one of the most popular events on the WWE calendar and that’s not something that the company takes lightly because more often than not, the WWE Universe is treated to some enjoyable moments at the January showcase.
This year there are many possibilities as we count down towards the event in Philadelphia, with several superstars being in the running to win that golden ticket to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
With that being said, here are the five most interesting storylines heading into the Royal Rumble.
#5 Shane & Bryan
The majority of people will agree when we say that the storyline between Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan has been a bit off. While it’s certainly had some good moments, their constant interactions have meant that they’ve been hogging most of the spotlight on a weekly basis over on SmackDown Live.
Still, we’re gearing up for Mania season, and as we approach the Rumble we still can’t figure out whether or not it’ll be Shane or Daniel that eventually turns heel. Obviously, there’s no guarantee that one of them actually will go through with it, but let’s be honest with ourselves, it’d be a tiny bit ridiculous if they were both positioned as babyfaces for the remainder of this story.
