WWE Fan Brad Preston posted an idea that he had had about the upcoming Royal Rumble on Twitter yesterday and it seems to have become a popular decision.
Preston wrote that he thinks the Roman Reigns vs Sheamus WWE World Heavyweight Championship match with Vince McMahon as the special guest referee on Monday Night Raw, will end in Reigns' favor and force the Chairman to make a huge announcement.
30-MAN TITLE DEFENSE
McMahon would then go on to proclaim that for the first time since The Royal Rumble in 1992, The WWE World Heavyweight Championship will be defended in the 30-man over the top rope battle royal.

This will then either crown a new champion, or allow Roman Reigns to win for a second consecutive time.
Fastlane would then boast a number one contenders tournament, finally giving that pay-per-view some emphasis given that it was rather overlooked last year when it was announced that it would replace Elimination Chamber.
WHAT COULD BE ADDED?
Whilst this is a fantastic idea, it would make more sense to have more that one person 'win' the Royal Rumble and have the debate as to who's feet hit the ground first or who the rightful champion is.
Then, going into Fastlane, the final four men in the Rumble could battle it out for the right to face the winner of the match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
This then gives the WWE Universe two big matches at Fastlane and it means the WrestleMania main event won't be announced until February so it adds to the build up.
Having the title defended in a 30-man battle royale would be a great way to further put Roman Reigns over to the fans and it does sound like something Vince McMahon would do.
It would further The Authority vs Reigns feud and it would also allow Triple H to take more time off and his feud with Roman could then pick up following WrestleMania to give WWE's summer storylines a added kick.
As stated above, this is one 'idea and there have been no inclinations as to where WWE are willing to take this, but if they're as determined to lift the ratings as they seem, then it could be time for them to create some history.
