The Royal Rumble is considered as the official start to Road to WrestleMania. And it’s no secret that the Royal Rumble will be the start of many intriguing storylines that will culminate at the granddaddy of them all.

The lack of interesting storylines has been haunting the promotion for some time now and there is a clear need to pull off more than the regular three main angles if they need to keep the buy rates up for WrestleMania.

Heads of the creative team will be steaming with ideas now but they need to put the best foot forward to wipe off every shame that they’ve attracted throughout last few months. There are going to be many talking points from the Rumble because of this, so let’s take a look at the top five storylines that the WWE could mould out at the Royal Rumble.

Batista, Title chase and Alberto Del Rio

If you thought that you’ve seen the end of Batista and Del Rio, well think again. the two are going to lock horns in Rumble again with Del Rio being eliminated by Batista as the most likely outcome.

Then the Animal can go all the way to win the Rumble and have a guaranteed title shot in his pocket for WrestleMania. This leaves the Animal free at Elimination Chamber. This is where Del Rio comes in handy as he would be a challenger for the Animal’s title shot at the Chamber.

However, Del Rio ain’t going to win the match on any grounds. He will only serve as a squash opponent for Batista who will gain great momentum by defeating the Mexican before his title clash at WrestleMania.
