My latest column for upgruv.com (and their app) looks at the past week in WWE programming. Here’s some highlights:
The Undertaker is in the Royal Rumble, which gives that match a heavy favorite.
That’s because whenever the Undertaker appears, it’s significant. This is especially true when the appearance is an event other than WrestleMania. There’s a grand purpose for Undertaker entering the Rumble; the setup for WrestleMania is likely the end goal.
But it doesn’t matter what match is made for the 33rd annual sports entertainment classic, there will be no convincing me that Undertaker versus John Cena isn’t the best option.
Cena will be challenging for the WWE World Championship at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view against AJ Styles. And here is how it should play out:
Cena wins the title. Undertaker wins the Rumble and No. 1 contender for whichever title he chooses.
The choice is Cena.
The rest sells itself.
There exists a potential speed bump in the form of Braun Strowman. On “Monday Night Raw,” the big man was shown watching The Undertaker’s Rumble announcement on a monitor backstage. This wasn’t an accident.
