    I don’t care what entrant Cena is as long as he doesn’t win the royal rumble.

    • qwertyboy619

    Cena-Rock 2 at WM29 for the title? Possible… but I just can’t see Vince putting the championship on a part time wrestler.

      I can…..it’s all about the money

      • Pozessed

        Agreed. I wouldn’t mind if The Rock was champ if he actually went to all of the house shows, raws, smackdowns etc. But if he is always going to be via satellite etc then we should take the WWE title, lube it up reeeeaallll good, then stick it straight up his candy ass!

    i so hope cena win and goes to wrestlemania winning the wwe championship once again!!!

  • The Situation!

    I hope The Rock wins the WWE title, and brings in a new title. That spinner belt is so out of date its not even funny anymore

    • ItsProgressNow

        Yes it was until 2010.

    • raven

      Wwe new wwe title design is gay I like the spinner bit they should bring back an old title like the intercontinental title

  • Joejpecordova

    He’s going to be The third guy To win the rumble at #1 I hope am Wong

    • Pozessed

      I hope not too. There’s only been 2 guys who have won the Rumble entering first. Shawn Michaels and Chris Benoit. They are 2 of the all time greats and deserved such a record, Cena doesn’t.

    I hope Cena doesn’t win. No one wants to see him wrestle in his 9th straight WrestleMania main event.

  • qwertyboy619

    Warrior has signed to appear in the Rumble and HOF.

  • Reality

    *sigh* Super Cena will be forced down our throat once again. Like Punk said, he’s been a loser this year, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he actually wins the Rumble..

    AWW DAMN! I knew Vince would try this stunt. Since Cena’s character still relies on a “Never Give Up” persona, somehow, Cena’s either gonna survive until the end and win, or he’s gonna survive till the end and get put out by someone to start a new feud. Now don’t get me wrong, I’d love to see Cena survive until the end and for #30 you hear *GONG* then have Taker eliminate him to set up a Streak match with Cena at WM29, but face it. It might seem too predictable, but i have a feeling Cena’s gonna win and challenge Rock at Wrestlemania so he can keep to his promise and win the title (Which Rock should have after beating Punk) thus ending rocks title reign and letting him take some time off, so Vince can think of what to bring Rock in for next time. Either way, Cena better lose.

    • Fighter

      You better get used to Cena winning in 2013. 2012 he jobbed to all the wrestlers who has done absolutely nothing to for WWE ratings wise. Just look at Cena winning the title and actually pulling in better ratings than the year long champion CM Punk did for 2012. And we’re going to all sort of excuses from the likes of you. Fact is the CM Punk experiment failed, it bombed and there is no excuse you can pull out your ass to prove other wise. Quite frankly the only people still crazy about Punk is the IWC and whenever he’s on television, the ratings prove that.

      well if that was the case wouldnt taker win the rumble?

  • wwetnadudez

    Oh okay, thats cool I guess people can add them to the main event matches of a PPV.. or at least Cena can. First at the WWE championship MITB match and now RR.

    McIntyre or Rhodes deserves this win. Have McIntyre go back to his Chosen One gimmick and have Rhodes ditch Sandow!

  • Akash rahaman
