    Royal Rumble Royal Rumble 2017 - WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens vs. Roman Reigns

    What’s different this time is the Superstar responsible for denying Reigns’ victory against Owens, KO’s best friend Chris Jericho, will be suspended 20 feet above the ring in a locked shark cage.


    The stipulation, introduced by Raw General Manager Mick Foley, effectively factors Jericho out of the equation on Sunday, Jan. 29. Jericho attacked Owens during the title contest at Roadblock: End of the Line, and though it at first appeared to be an act of betrayal, the ambush caused Reigns to be disqualified and allowed Owens to retain the championship.

    Owens and Jericho’s friendship, always in service of Owens’ title reign, can withstand the toll of an occasional Codebreaker, but how will the best buds, including the acrophobic Jericho, hold up under the unique conditions of the upcoming WWE Universal Championship Match? Will Owens and Jericho hatch another scheme to derail Reigns’ mission to regain the crown, despite Jericho being locked away in a cage high above the ring? Or, with the playing field now even, can The Big Dog pounce and take out The Prizefighter for Raw’s top title?

    Watch the huge championship match at the 30th annual Royal Rumble, airing live on the award-winning WWE Network Sunday, Jan. 29, at special start time of 7 ET/4 PT.

    I just hope the stipulation means we're getting a clean finish one way or another.

    I wonder if Gedo can put together a big enough shark cage for Omega and Naito's title matches at Tokyo Dome.

    You cannot possibly believe that. Hell, even with typical WWE skepticism taking a backseat, we LITERALLY just saw a shark cage match in NXT that resulted in Ellering interfering. There's no way this match goes down without some kind of fuckery.

    Is this the night Triple H returns? If it is, I really hope we don't get him against Reigns again for Fastlane before he gets Rollins at Mania.

    Yeah this match will end in some form of fuckery one way or another. such a shame just how badly they've booked KO's reign.

    It would be nice for KO to beat Reigns clean. #WishfulThinking

    Re: Royal Rumble 2017 - WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens vs. Roman Reigns

    I've seen so many people saying that they're adamant that Reigns is winning the title. I think that it's a foregone conclusion that KO retains. There's nothing to gain in having Reigns as Universal Champion going into Wrestlemania. Plenty think that he'll drop the US belt to someone (probably Strowman) before then, but even so, who does he then face at Wrestlemania? The Undertaker is the only person I could see logically facing him but that it's a match I'd like to see. If he's still dual champion then you could see Strowman vs Reigns at Wrestlemania, but is that a Wrestlemania match? Not at this point for me.

    I think KO retains here, though it'll likely be through some shenanigans and he moves on to feud with Jericho afterwards. Reigns should then move into a US title feud with Strowman for Wrestlemania.
