10 favourites to win the 2020 Men's Royal Rumble match
#9 Kofi Kingston
It is hard to argue that anyone had a better 2019 than Kofi Kingston. He had a historic chase for the WWE Championship that he ended up winning at WrestleMania 35. Then, he had a 180-day reign as champ defeating some of the best in the business. As soon as he lost the strap, he was able to bounce right back by once again winning the SmackDown Tag Team Championships alongside Big E.
Not only is Kofi one of WWE's hottest Superstars in terms of momentum and crowd reaction, but he is also synonymous with the Royal Rumble because of his mind blowing saves he makes each year to prevent himself from getting eliminated.
Now, Kofi can be synonymous with the event for another reason. His athleticism and crazy imagination that allows him to pull off these stunts combined with how popular he has become could be the equation for one of the loudest ovations of all time if Kofi Kingston wins the Royal Rumble. Not to mention, he could eliminate Brock Lesnar, who defeated him in eight seconds, to set up a surefire main event rematch at WrestleMania.Published 12 Jan 2020, 22:15 IST
