Royal Rumble preview and predictions

The Royal Rumble is tonight.  Unfortunately, I won't be able to watch, but let's take a look at what I think may happen.  Before we get there though, check out the cool Rumble video WWE rolls out for the big event every year.

The Rumble:  Jericho wins because I really do not see any other obvious choices.  Maybe that takes us to Punk/Jericho at 'Mania or something.  Brodus "Funkasaurus" Clay gets the "Diesel Push" by eliminating a bunch of folks and Foley gets the comedy, "Quickest elimination" spot.

Ziggler/Punk (WWE Title):  Punk finds a way to win.  I'd be all for a Ziggler win and him retaining until WM 28 where Punk can reclaim the title.  Elimination Chamber makes it harder for me to see Dolph winning and retaining until WM 28 though.  So, Punk wins in spite of the RAW GM's (John Laurinaitis) best laid plans.

Big Show/Mark Henry/Daniel Bryan (WHC):  Bryan finds a way to escape with the title.  While I'm not typically a huge fan of that type of title reign, it makes perfect sense given Bryan's current character.

Cena/Kane:  I have zero interest in this, but Cena wins to give him momentum heading into his epic showdown with the Rock at WM 28.
