Royal Rumble: Who Will Be Number 2?

One of the fun things, something I am sure many people look forward to as part of the Royal Rumble, is the countdown to the next entrant, and of course, hearing the music or seeing them come out and figuring out how things will go. No spot is bigger for that than the opening pairing, especially since when things move on to the last few spots, you can usually figure out who hasn’t entered yet. It’s possibly one reason why WWE doesn’t give us the rundown of entrants like they used to…they hope we forget or don’t pay attention.

For the 2016 Rumble, we already know entrant number 1. On RAW, in a continued effort to screw Roman Reigns, Vince McMahon declared that Reigns is the first man in. Which begs the question: who is number 2?

Barring some series of rapid eliminations, this is usually the only portion of the Rumble that has a chance to really resemble an actual wrestling match, up until the final four. So with that in mind, I have three predictions for who the 2nd entrant will be.

#1: Hunter Hearst Helmsley

This one, at least being so early in the night? That seems unlikely-though I have been calling for a HHH entry in the Rumble for several weeks now. I think, if anything, he comes in between 25 and 30, but having him go toe to toe with Roman right away would be another surprise, for sure.

#2: Dean Ambrose

This one would be less about hurting Roman and more about hurting both Reigns and Ambrose, stacking the deck so that neither man has an easy path to the title. Consider this maneuver to be The Authority aiming to kill two birds with one stone.

#3: Braun Strowman

Here’s a big man who makes just about everyone in the ring with him look tiny.¬† Reigns is no exception. If you see Strowman as the second man down to the ring, just know that it’s going to be a long night for Roman. Very long. Or, if not long? Then very disappointing, as a short night clearly means Reigns would be leaving without a title.

We will know in just a few short days, but who do you think opens up the Rumble with Reigns?

    Chavo Guerrero as a surprise entrant wins the whole thing. Kidding, Brock wins.

    • Fat Owens Fat

      Kerwin White FTW

  • Tyler

    Are Ambrose and Owens even going to be involved or will they be selling their LMS match brutality?

    • Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

      The LMS match mite be like the second match of the night so they will get some recovery time for the Rumble match

    • Victor82

      I don’t see them in the rumble match.

  • Bite Me You Loser

    Wyatts dominant the Rumble untill Lesnar comes in and clears them out. We get to the end and the Wyatts return to attack Lesnar setting up for a Wyatt vs Lesnar Wrestlemania

    • Joseph Lisnow

      i’d gladly pay to see that.

  • Fat Owens Fat

    Braun Strowman is the American Khali. The guy is huge and that’s about it.

  • Si Nicholls

    My guess would be 1 of the Uso’s unless WWE want number’s 1 & 2 to be the final 2 standing, then maybe Brock, by would having Brock not eliminating Roman in under 2 minutes be suspending belief too much into the unbelievable

  • Paul Long

    Weeeeyyeeelllllahh well it’s the Big Show

  • MEH

    Taker followed by surprise entrant Maven who eliminates Taker for a 2nd time setting up a loser leave town match at WM32 where he does the impossible…… And we’re back in the room.
