With the WWE World Heavyweight Championship to be defended at the Royal Rumble for the first time ever, the WWE is heading into a plethora of possibilities regarding the highest prize in the company. 

With 30 wrestlers set to take part in the Royal Rumble match, we will look at some of the prospects who may walk out as the champion.

Roman Reigns

Roman Reigns will be the favourite and the obvious choice to walk out of the Royal rumble as WWE World Heavyweight Champion. He won the title after beating Sheamus on Raw last year after several attempts, starting back at Wrestlemania 31.

He did win the Royal Rumble last time in 2015 and was booed by the audience. Even The Rock got booed, when he came to assist Roman Reigns. The WWE has to be careful regarding the scripting of the match or they might find themselves facing the wrath of the WWE Universe and Reigns losing his popularity which he has gained at the end of 2015.

Brock Lesnar

Paul Heyman, on the second Raw of 2016, stated Brock Lesnar to be a ‘Box Office’ wrestler and should be main eventing Wrestlemania. The authority rejected the idea of the winner of Royal Rumble facing Brock Lesnar for the World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania. 

The former ECW head may be right. Making Brock the champion at Royal Rumble will be great for the WWE as it will add a new twist to the whole Authority vs Roman Reigns storyline. Whether it is the UFC Heavyweight title or the WWE World Heavyweight title, Brock Lesnar does look great carrying the gold.

Triple H

This is a possibility that every fan of the WWE will look. A Triple H return to the wrestling roster will be a delight for every loyal WWE fan. It would be a nice way to send off the ‘King of Kings’ - if he were to win the title at Royal Rumble and then pass it over to Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania.

The groundwork has been laid out for this storyline to play out, when Roman Reigns attacked Triple H at Surviour Series. It would be nice for Triple H to be a 14-time champion and then help Roman Reigns to enhance his status in the WWE at Wrestlemania.

And we all know that Triple H has never shied away when it comes to putting over young guys.
