Roman Reigns Will Win 2015 Royal Rumble Says Jim Ross
Believe - former Shield member will be heading to Wrestlemania to take on the champ...
Roman Reigns will win the 2015 Royal Rumble, legendary commentator and WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross reckons.
Good ol' JR told Rolling Stone elevating a superstar with a big win in the 30 man over-the-top rope battle royal would ensure the show could be considered a success.
He said: “A lot of things depend on how healthy some of the guys are that are hurt.
"I would say you have a chance to have someone emerge from the Rumble that’s going to be your next big thing.
"With that said, my feeling is that Roman Reigns wins the Royal Rumble. He has a great look. He has the confidence of the promotion, so I think he’d be a great potential winner.
"How he does it is another issue. Does he come in during the middle of the match and just dominate? Last year, he did that.
"I don’t think it was followed up on like they probably would have liked for it to."
Looking forward to Wrestlemania, JR - considered the best wrestling commentator of all time - added: "If you’re going to have [Brock] Lesnar be the champion at WrestleMania, and then the winner of the Royal Rumble meets the champion, then you would have the match between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar, and there’s where you would pass the torch.”
Last year Reigns broke the Royal Rumble record for eliminations by dumping out a whopping 12 wrestlers.
