I'm going with Y2J but can see Orton winning also. Here's a curve ball. What if UT returns and wins the rumble tonight???

I plan on updating the first post in the thread with Rumble participants as they come out, if anyone needs a list.

The Miz is #1, Jesse James is rumored to appear.

Ought to be interesting to see how much Henry can work with his foot and groin injuries.

The end seemed anticlimactic. I was kinda wondering if Show was expected to pull him back up, but couldn't hang on.

The spots with Bryan hanging and kicking looked pretty cool, but the end did look a little hinky. I have a friend at the show and he said Henry got to the back while Bryan was celebrating. I'm forced to wonder how much of the match they had to change with his injuries.

Sounds like Cena's got no fans in St. Louis.

The crowd doesn't even cheer Cena when he comes out for the save. Then they pop when Kane chokeslams him.

Re: The January '12 Pro Wrestling Thread: Genesis/Royal Rumble

The two guys I wanted to see win are Miz and Rhodes. I'm not liking their chances but I do like it looks like they both may have a long run in the match.
