A month into 2016, it already seems that WWE is set to have a bigger and better year than the past 12 months.
If the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event which took place at the Amway Center in Orlando, last month, is anything to go by, then the WWE Universe is surely set to be in for an exciting year.
Triple H's Royal Rumble win already confirmed that the company will be looking to continue its trend of having legendary wrestlers play a prominent role in the business.

This idea of facing experienced WWE icons against the fresh, young talent of today's roster makes for an exciting experience, for a whole host of WWE followers.
With this in mind, What Culture recently reported that Dave Meltzer revealed Shawn Michaels could well be replacing Batista at WrestleMania 32 on April 3.
What Culture went on to explain how Batista was originally offered a spot as a special guest referee in Triple H's match with Roman Reigns, but the 47-year-old subsequently turned it down.
As a result, those in charge of WWE could well be looking to turn to Shawn Michaels to be his replacement, and with the location of this year's event being in Michaels' home state; this alternative plan could prove to be extremely popular.
What Culture also reported that Ric Flair revealed HBK was offered money to work at the Royal Rumble but clearly did not take the company up on their proposition.
Were Michaels to instead make a now highly-anticipated return on The Grandest Stage Of Them All in April instead, the stage would be set for WWE to create an incredible match up.
With The Game able to have one of his closest friends refereeing the match and undoubtedly, therefore, on his side, Reigns' chances would diminish even further and consequently promote a memorable reunion between Triple H and Shawn Michaels.
Ultimately, whether WWE chooses to have Shawn Michaels in the black and white stripes for the match or not, there is little doubt about him having a prominent role at some point during WrestleMania 32.
His inclusion, alongside other home state giants such as Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Undertaker, would surely represent the success of WWE's tradition of bringing back wrestling legends.
After all, this plan is one which WWE's creative team often seem to do well with and one which undeniably pleases the majority of the WWE Universe.
As such, WWE is nothing without its huge fan base and it seems that as long as the company is able to bring back its most famous and experienced wrestlers of the past, followers of WWE will continue to be satisfied.
