    I don't know about winning it, but I'd say Keith Lee is probably the most likely NXT star to get a spot in the match, and probably the 'Diesel' push in it too with a bunch of eliminations before it takes 6 guys to get rid of him.

    That said, I'd be all for Lee vs. Lesnar at WrestleMania!

    Sign me up.

    I do think that one way or another, an NXT star is winning a Rumble. Whether it's Baszler for the women or someone like Ciampa or Lee for the men. I'm betting they'll win one or the other.

    Re: WWE Royal Rumble 2020 Discussion

    Yeah there were rumors flying around that there will be a some NXT matches on Wrestlemania this year so its not out the realms of possibility that an NXT guy wins this year, but I just can't see it happening. I feel like it has to be either Ciampa or Lee and i just can't see either one of them taking it. Like Wolfy i do see Lee playing a big role in the match though.

    Bryan sounds like a good shout right now, but the thought of him v Bray as the title match at Mania hurts my brain (can't see Bray losing the title before then).

    I could see Shayna dropping her title to Ripley, then winning the women's Rumble to set up a match with Becky at Wrestlemania.

    I'm not watching the shows, have they said the winner of the match can challenge for the NXT title?

    No. They haven't even mentioned NXT's involvement but they're in the matches every year. I'm assuming they could choose to challenge for the NXT Title but

    I always assumed an NXT star winning the Rumble would mean a shot at a main roster title. As much as WWE has promoted NXT this year it's still clearly a developmental brand so it wouldn't make a lot of kayfabe sense for a guy to win the Rumble and challenge for that belt, unless they just had some unspeakable grudge with the current champion.

    If an NXT person were to win I'd say it's much more likely that it's for the sake of a main roster call-up, in which case the only person I can see them pulling that trigger on is Shayna.

    Is it really? I dunno a year ago i would have totally agreed with you but with the rise in AEW it does feel like they want a third brand to compete with it and NXT really is that brand. They still do have a developmental arm but it feels like that developmental arm is being spread across all their brands rather than soley on NXT (205 itself seems to be taking a large chunk of it).

    I doubt we will see as much movement between NXT and the main roster as we have done in previous years.

    Re: WWE Royal Rumble 2020 Discussion

    NXT still records in a smaller arena, which is very noticeable when compared to a Raw or Smackdown or even AEW and they still don't participate on main brand PPVs except for when WWE wants to use them for extra buys for Survivor Series (TLC didn't feature a single NXT match and there was plenty of room for one).

    NXT is the perfect competition for AEW because AEW is trying to steal the smark crowd and NXT is the only brand of WWE's that consistently appeals to those folks, so they've pushed the hell out of it in that timeslot to keep the heat on their competition, but when you watch the three WWE shows there is a definite feel to NXT that makes it feel more "minor league" than the other two. I can't see it being believable at all that someone would win the Royal Rumble and choose to face Adam Cole at Wrestlemania over Brock Lesnar.

    Re: WWE Royal Rumble 2020 Discussion

    I always enjoy the Royal Rumble and I honestly felt like I would probably be back to watching the WWE by this point in time, leading to watching with WM with some buds as has become an annual tradition. But nothing I read about what is going on makes me the least bit interested in watching this company. I'm not even sure I can be arsed to try to find a stream of it when it comes down to the Rumble.

    If Riddle is going to wrestle at Mania it would be Billberg surely?

    I could see Shayna winning the women's rumble. However, I just can't imagine them letting an NXT guy win the men's rumble, that would be a really big shocker to me (a welcomed one at that). At this current point in time, I can only see Roman or Bryan winning it.

    What would we rather see though out of those two options? I’d be perfectly happy never seeing Goldberg wrestle again.

    I love Bryan going back to his OG look, it's so refreshing, and reminds me of the Bryan that made me fall in love with the old school ROH. Honestly looking forward to his match with the Fiend on this show.

    I think Morrison returning in the rumble is bang on.

    Punk returning, nope.
