Predicting the Royal Rumble favourites after Roman Reigns' departure
The Contenders (CONT.)
The picture above says a lot. Seth Rollins just looks better with gold around his waist. He's not hurting for it now, but it's only a matter of time before he loses both his Intercontinental Title and Tag Team titles.
The recent attack of Dean Ambrose pretty much guarantees the tag titles are headed elsewhere. If he loses the IC title before the Rumble, it might be a sign of bigger things ahead for the Kingslayer.
Ambrose has untapped potential as a top heel. His recent turn was facilitated with the recent face turns by Strowman and Elias.
He's another hugely popular star of this newer generation never to win the rumble. Think about a heel-Ambrose as Universal Champion against a returning Roman Reigns.
Reigns will undoubtedly be treated like the babyface WWE want him to be. The story practically writes itself.
The other first-time winner would be the Miz. He could challenge either Bryan or Styles as the heel challenger.
His story with Bryan is far from over. Feuding over the WWE Championship would make the feud even more personal.
He's already had min-feuds with Styles. They've hinted at major feuds between the two before whenever Styles has been on MizTV.
The Miz has been one of the all-stars of WWE over the last three years and would be a deserving winner.
