WWE World Heavyweight Championship Triple Threat Match: Brock Lesnar (c) vs John Cena vs Seth Rollins
John Cena came out first. He got a largely negative reaction. Really negative. They were singing something derogatory to his song. I couldn’t tell what it was. Seth Rollins came out next. They made a point of saying he could lose and yet still cash in and get the Title. At the introductions, Cena was largely booed. Rollins was in between. Brock is the face, by far.
Brock was in complete control early on, destroying both but working more on Cena. The fans chanted ECW. … The first big move was Cena hitting an AA on Lesnar and Rollins tossing Cena, going for the cover and only getting a one count. Brock is back in control. Rollins hit a dropkick on Lesnar on the floor and Cena hit Brock too. They are taking Brock out and now it’s Cena-Rollins. The fans don’t like Cena. he is even laughing about it. Brock didn’t stay down long so its back to varying degrees of the guys. But Brock is still the main guy at this point.
Brock hit a sick F5 on Seth, catching him as he springboarded off of the top, but Cena broke it up. Please don’t leave and go back to UFC Brock. You are great. … Brock is still in control, in charge of both guys. He went to the floor and attacked the Spanish Announce Table. The fans loved it. He destroyed a monitor. They loved it more. Cena snuck up and caught Brock with three AAs. He kicked out at two. Rollins came in and hurt a Curb Stomp. He has the cover broken at two by Cena. The fans are loving this and it’s by far the best match so far. … The first one to his feet was Lesnar. He is a beast. But Cena came out of nowhere and put him through the announce table. Cena set up Lesnar on another table but couldn’t do anything. Rollins sure could, hitting a Randy Savage elbow from the top to the floor, destroying the table. The fans chanted it was awesome and they are right. This is great stuff. … Brock is left for dead on the floor. Cena came into the ring and Rollins did a small package for two, and then another for two. The announcers are even selling how good this is. What a nice change. … Cena got a two with a powerbomb on Rollins. Brock is still out. Two doctors are working on him. Rollins runs with Cena and throws him into the corner, two count only. … Cena got the STF on Rollins and in came the Stooges to break it up since this is no DQ. They brought out a stretcher for Brock.
Rollins realizes it’s him and Cena. Heyman is concerned with Brock. Rollins went to use the case but Cena tossed him over the top. Cena did an double AA on the Stooges and then hit an AA on Rollins but he kicked out. They showed Brock on the floor, now on the backboard. Cole said Lesnar at least has a broke rib. A Let’s Go Cena/Cena Sucks duel broke out. They are battling in the ring. Rollins hit an enzigiri and then a Curbstomp but Cena kicked out. Cena is prone when Rollins did an insane spot off of the top. Before he could go for the pin, Brock came back in the ring and broke them both up. Seth got the case and nailed Brock twice. He went for the Stomp when Brock picked his ass up and nailed him with an F5 to retain his title. I even yelled YEAH at the finish. That was an amazing, incredible match. Brock sold the rib as he left but he walked out. Damn that was amazing. Awesome match, worth the price of the show just to see it. Kudos to all three men. They were amazing. Match of the year candidate without a doubt. [credit: PWInsider]

Stop reading right now if you prefer being surprised at the Royal Rumble!!
The smart money is in and Brock Lesnar is the heavy favorite to win tonight’s triple threat match. He is priced at -2600, while Cena & Rollins are at +2000 each. This of course only counts for the triple threat itself. If a cash-in by Mr Money-in-the-bank Seth Rollins will happen after the match is up in the air.
WWE’s Vice President of Digital Media Content Joey Styles has made a bold prediction for Sunday’s Royal Rumble match. Despite not even being an announced participant, Styles thinks that reigning WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar will win the 30-man battle royal.
WWE.com has published a new “Editor’s Choice” feature with predictions for the Rumble match, with Styles laying out the most outlandish scenario. Here’s how he thinks it will go down:
“After losing the WWE World Heavyweight Championship without being beaten when Rollins pins John Cena, Lesnar will take another Superstar’s spot in the Royal Rumble Match after beating him into unconsciousness backstage. The enraged former UFC Heavyweight Champion will then leave battered and broken bodies strewn about ringside behind him as he starts his Road to WrestleMania — and revenge.”
Styles thinks Seth Rollins will win the title and go on to defend against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania.
The Turnbuckle Weekly interviewed Roman Reigns this week and asked him about potentially main eventing WrestleMania against Brock Lesnar. Reigns said that it would be a “million dollar dream” come true. He also believes because of their backgrounds it would be one hell of a brutal match.
“I think it would be one of the hardest hitting matches of all-time. It’d be extremely aggressive. I think you’d see a level of intensity you’ve never seen before.”
