It appears as though Triple H is in line to win the 2016 Royal Rumble Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
“It makes it real interesting. We know that Roman Reigns and Triple H is going to happen. But now, there’s the idea that Reigns beats 28 guys, then Triple H beats him to win the Rumble,” Dave Meltzer said after Raw on Wrestling Observer Radio.
Co-host Bryan Alvarez added, “Well, Vince did say Hunter was going to get his revenge and you weren’t going to see it coming.”
There’s always the possibility that Reigns and Hunter clash at Fastlane on Feb. 21, but the magnitude of WrestleMania 32 would factor into how this feud plays out.
The other idea for Reigns would be that he wins the Rumble and retains his title. That would be a way to really put him over, although there has to be the fear that he could be rejected in the same way as last year.
He’s been on a superb run since November, getting over and really establishing himself as WWE World Heavyweight Champion. The creative has been very good, as have his match performances. WWE must be careful in their Rumble booking, they must ensure Reigns’ progress isn’t now squandered.
A match against Triple H at WrestleMania 32 feud would certainly be a good option. Reigns would likely be cheered against “The Game” and it would be a very good match.
