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.
The second Booby Roode debuted in WWE with his much lauded “Glorious” entrance theme and donning his signature shiny robes, his wrestling fans around the world immediately began to imagine him strutting to the ring at WrestleMania. If he wins this year’s Rumble match they’ll see him do it for a championship opportunity.
Roode’s a veteran in the best shape of his career. A masterful in-ring storyteller, he possesses that unteachable ability to have great matches with any opponent. Because of this it’s not a matter of if he becomes WWE or Universal Champion, but when. And honestly there’s no time like the present. Only a fool would count out “The Glorious One”. |
