Roman Reigns To Defend WWE Title In Rumble Match? Yes, Please.

So it's been announced on RAW that Roman Reigns will be defending his WWE World Heavyweight Championship thing against twenty-nine other men in the 30-man Royal Rumble match at the upcoming PPV. This would make it the first time since 1992 that a Rumble has been for the WWE championship itself, as well as the first time since 1990 that a WWE World champion has participated in the Rumble. However, this is the first time in which the reigning WWE World champion is actually DEFENDING the title in the Rumble match itself.

You know what? I don't know about anybody else, but I actually like this idea. I always felt that if they really wanted to do something really different with the Rumble, they should have the champion defend his title in the Rumble match itself. A title shot at Wrestlemania is all well and good, but means nothing when the match itself could potentially play second-fiddle to whatever bullshit old-timer match they have going on. Remember, we've had Rumble winners get title shots at Wrestlemania in the OPENING MATCH, making the prize about as worthwhile as winning Tough Enough.

A Rumble match where the champion is defending, on the other hand? That sound interesting. And who knows? Maybe Roman might triumph, maybe someone else will get the win. But one thing's for sure. It'll be a fun ride. And thus, I approve of this.

I may have jinxed the whole thing, haven't I?
