LiquidAE.com is counting down to the WWE Royal Rumble event on January 28, 2018. Taking place live from Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA, this will be its 30th anniversary.
The Royal Rumble match is a variation of the traditional Battle Royal match with a total of 30 competitors. Two WWE Superstars start in the ring, every 90 seconds thereafter another Superstar enters. A Superstar is eliminated when they’re thrown over the top rope and both feet touch the floor.
The last remaining Superstar is guaranteed a championship opportunity at WrestleMania versus the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion or WWE Universal Champion.
WWE loves to tout their wolves, demons, monsters and beasts, but a true titan like Titus O’Neil hasn’t often enough been portrayed as a serious threat. During his stint in NXT where he feuded with Sami Zayne, Titus came off as this dominant goliath. Once returned to the main roster he was again losing to guys his equally mammoth peers would squash.
It would be cool to watch Titus finally become vehemently displeased with his minor status and start dishing out major beat downs to ascend the ranks. Backed aggressively by the loyalists in his #TitusWorldWide crew, the NCAA football champion turned wrestler could enter the Royal Rumble with renewed purpose and fury. Displaying his power – strength and influence – like never before, he’d out last all to secure his championship opportunity at WrestleMania while his followers echo his call of “Titus…WORLD WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDE!” |
