The card looks pretty solid, and the mens match is absolutely stacked already, with a few spaces left for some NXT guys and a couple of surprises. Brock entering number 1 is some awesome booking. Theres a lot of ways they could go with it, and its likely whoever eliminates him will get the title match at Mania, unfortunately the safe money seems to be on that being Cain Velasquez instead of an awesome choice like Matt Riddle. With so much talent involved its tricky to pick a winner although the safe money is on Reigns winning his second Rumble and going on to challenge The Fiend, but I still wouldnt rule out guys like Joe, Owens and Rollins and the outside bets of McIntyre, Black or even Lesnar going the distance. Havent looked forward to a Rumble this much in a while.

Theres been a lack of vision put on the womens match so far, but my money is still on Shayna Baszler taking the win and going on to challenge Becky. Speaking of Becky...

I've loved the build to her match with Asuka. Its so simple that she's doubting herself because she's never beaten Asuka but she's still going in swinging, it puts Asuka over huge.
