Big Plans For The Rumble & WrestleMania, WM27 Location


– Although plans can change very quickly in WWE, the idea over the weekend was that Triple H is the favorite to win the Royal Rumble and receive a title match against Sheamus at WrestleMania.

His DX partner Shawn Michaels‘ is expected to face Batista at No Way Out to determine who will battle the Undertaker at WrestleMania.

At one point there was talk of Triple H and Shawn Michaels BOTH winning the Royal Rumble (ala Bret Hart and Lex Luger back in 1994), which would have allowed HBK to chose the Undertaker and Hunter to chose Sheamus as their respective WrestleMania opponents. The idea was seemingly dropped after creative came up with the idea of Hunter winning by himself.

Then the big interbrand match at WrestleMania would pit John Cena against Batista.

– Miami and Atlanta are the two cities being considered to host WrestleMania in 2011, according to Gary Stokan, President of the Atlanta Sports Council. Skohan told The Sports Buffet that the announcement will be officially made on Monday, the day after Sunday’s Royal Rumble PPV.

If Miami is chosen, Sun Life Stadium, which holds approximately 76,500 fans, would host the event. If Atlanta is chosen, the Georgia Dome which holds 71,000 would host the event.

It’s also worth noting that this year’s Surivvor Series is taking place in Miami.
