Posted by Matt Boone December 22, 2012 3 Comments

- WWE has confirmed that this year’s Royal Rumble main event will feature 30 Superstars. The 2012 match also featured 30 Superstars but the 2011 match had 40 Superstars for the first time ever.

– In case you missed it in yesterday’s updated press release for the WWE Royal Rumble Fan Fest in Phoenix on January 26th, WWE will be holding a tournament where the winner will receive a guaranteed slot in the Rumble main event. NXT stars are also scheduled to wrestle at the Fan Fest. The Fan Fest will also feature live musical performances, food trucks, three interactive Superstar Q&A panels plus a lot more.

– Within WWE, there has been some second-guessing the recent babyface turn for The Miz. The feeling is that while things may have started rough, officials feel that it will work out in the long run.

      Miz is actually doing quite well in the babyface role. I didn’t expect him to do as well as he has, to be honest.

        I think the people(fans) have been waiting for his face turn. His “heel” persona is actually what is NEEDED now for fans to get behind. I TRUELY believe his face turn is something that is needed. I think he needs to work on it, that is certain. But fitting the Miz persona into a babyface it, in the long run, a great thing.

      Why not have a 40-Man Royal Rumble again??? You know how many wrestlers in the roster they aren’t being used. Give them a moment to shine atleast, even if its a few minutes till they get eliminated.
