Royal Rumble Predictions

If Wrestlemania is the Super Bowl, then the Royal Rumble is "Championship Sunday." The above video explains the pay-per-view by the numbers. The Rumble takes place tomorrow night at 8.

30-man Royal Rumble match
The winner will receive a world championship match of their choosing at WrestleMania XXVI

There are many different ways they can go with this. So here are a few possible scenarios:

--Shawn Michaels wins and goes on to face The Undertaker at 'Mania with 'Taker's streak and the World title on the line.

-- Perhaps Michaels and Triple H are the last two and Hunter tosses Shawn. There are rumors that Triple H is going to face Sheamus at Wrestlemania. So that could happen or Michaels eliminates Hunter and someone else wins the Rumble, this leads to HHH-Michaels at 'Mania.

- Could Ted DiBiase win and then Orton beats Sheamus, which would set up DiBiase and Orton at 'Mania for the W.W.E. title.

- Also, how does Edge fit into all of this? Will he cost Chris Jericho the match?

I'm partial to seeing Michaels-Taker at 'Mania so I'm going to pick Shawn to win the Royal Rumble match.

Other matches...

E.C.W. Champion Christian vs. Ezekiel Jackson
There is still talk that the E.C.W. brand will be scrapped, so I see no reason to take the title off of Christian.

World Champ The Undertaker vs. Rey Mysterio
Undertaker will win.

W.W.E. Champ Sheamus vs. Randy Orton
I think Sheamus somehow leaves with the title.

W.W.E. Woman's Champ Michelle McCool vs. Mickie James
I'd like to see James win this match. I've never really been sold on McCool as champ.
