Unless you have been ostracized by society then you know the animal, Batista, is back. I for one am over the moon about it and could not be happier. However, *breaks squeal* lets pump the breaks a little bit. The Royal Rumble match is and has been a staple for the WWE for years and years. Last years rumble winner was so obvious, and even though I am a minority and like him, John Cena was not who should of won last year. The Royal Rumble should go to those stars who need a push, who are the future. John Cena winnning last year was just for the obvious feud with the Rock at Wrestlemania. Now with Batista back, the WWE universe does not need to see Batista slipping into John Cena or The Rock's shoes.
Batista coming back at this time is two fold. Will he win and go to headline Wrestlemania like Cena did which would be obvious or will he go to Wrestlemania and soak up the glory that the Rock did. Batista to me is more credible than the Rock. The Rock came back, and as a champ, he showed his face for 3 matches and showed up, maybe, every other week. I do not want a Rocky 2 with Batista. I think that it would be good for Batista to go for the title. He even said on RAW he is back to get that title. However, Batista does not need the win of the rumble to get him a title shot.
The winner of the Rumble should be someone who has A.) Never main evented at RAW and B.) Someone who is fresh and can take the company to new heights. Batista has done this before. Hes been the "face of the company", and as much as I want his return to be successful he does not need to beat 29 other superstars to show that he has what it takes.
My picks for the final four are Batista, Cody Rhodes, Goldust, and Roman Reigns and hopefully Cody or Reigns wins.
