Quote Kurt Angle comes out to the ring to kick off the show. Kurt says since there wasn't a decisive winner of Strowman vs. Kane last week, he will announce tonight who will face Lesnar at the Rumble. Kurt gets interrupted by Braun Strowman, who comes into the ring with a mic and points out that he was the last man standing last week. Kane interrupts next, and gets in the ring and talks about his years of destruction in WWE. Paul Heyman comes out to the stage next to interrupt, and he says there won't be any conversations without including his client, Brock Lesnar. WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar comes out and marches down to the ring. Lesnar steps in the ring, and Kurt Angle says before things get out of hand, he's going to make his announcement right now. Kurt says at the Royal Rumble it'll be a triple threat: Lesnar vs. Kane vs. Strowman. Kurt quickly says "its' true, it's true" and gets out of the ring before all hell breaks loose. Kane, Lesnar and Strowman circle each other. Kane and Lesnar dump Strowman outside, then Kane and Lesnar grab each other. Lesnar gets the better of the exchange and hits the F-5 on Kane. Lesnar holds up his Universal Title belt and then leaves the ring to join Heyman back on the ramp. Before they leave, Kane sits up and gets to his feet just moments after the F-5, and Lesnar and Heyman look concerned.
 
We thought Ziggles was added to Corbin/Roode to take the fall. We think the same for Kane, but could we be swerved a second time?
 
Imagine if Kane somehow upsets the odds to get an unexpected Universal title run in the twilight of his career.....
 
I'm surprised this storyline was rushed to the start of the show. Probably so Brock could get to the arena and leave it ASAP.

They've been pre-loading the shows for a while now. When you lose 700,000 viewers between start and finish I can understand their reasoning.

No though. I don't see a swerve coming. If anything this match seems to exist only to explain why Strowman isn't in/does poorly during the Rumble itself.

I'm starting to think that Strowman will win this - theres only so many times he can blow big opportunities before his character starts to become affected

I mean i know they want Reigns to become the ultimate at Mania by defeating Lesnar but surely having to go through Strowman and Lesnar in a triple threat would do that just as well

It's really a shame WWE doesn't listen to their fans more attentively. Reigns would actually get over on his own if WWE weren't so damned belligerent in their pushing of him. Most everyone these days recognize the guy's pretty great now, but having Strowman win and have his time in the spotlight like the fans want makes far more sense.

If WWE weren't so damned focused on booking heat with the fans, they'd have Strowman go over at the rumble, take the title and then successfully defend against Reigns at Mania, but they won't because they have tunnel vision.

And this whole tease with Balor going to 205 Live to work with Kenta is stupid. Balor is another guy that would be great to take out Lesnar, and Lesnar should be used as if he were the Undertaker at WrestleMania. He broke the streak, he takes Taker's spot, see if you can beat him, because you probably can't.

In the meantime Balor is just going to waste when he should be the Royal Rumble winner and facing the champion of the WWE Universe at WrestleMania whether it's Strowman or Lesnar, and Reigns should just be US Heavyweight Champion and WWE should be content with that.

All this is doing is to help Glen Jacobs's run for Mayoral office in Tennessee by being in a high profile match 4 months out from the election, and also having him take the pin in that match to keep Braun strong.

Like others, I'm really disappointed that this is what we are getting at the Rumble. Kane in a universal title match does not interest me in the slightest and the writing has been on the wall for a while on what's happening with the universal title picture throughout most of this year and to Wrestlemania. So many better options were there. Lesnar vs Balor would have been great and they stuffed that up. Lesnar vs Styles II would have been fine. Hell, have Bruan dethrone Lesnar here which is what everyone wants to see anyway. 

This is the time to pull the trigger with Braun. The bloke is the most over guy the WWE has had since Daniel Bryan and recent history has shown that not giving the fans what they want with a certain guy has negative consequences. Ryback is the perfect example of this. Obviously Braun is far better but Ryback was huge for a while until they allowed too many set backs on his resume. 

This isn't even anything against Reigns. 
All Hail Mitchell Johnson and David Warner.

There is some leaked info that has Cena winning the Rumble and winning his 17th world title at mania. If this holds up, i might cancel my network subscription.

See now their website poll got Kane such a small percentage, I am even more thinking a swerve is happening, because E love a good swerve.......
 
Quote Following the announcement that Brock Lesnar will be defending his WWE Universal Championship in a triple-threat match against Braun Strowman and Kane at next month's WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view, WWE.com is running a poll asking fans to vote on who they feel has a better chance of defeating Lesnar. As of this writing, 79 percent of the votes have gone to Strowman, while 21 percent have voted for Kane.
 
He could always lose the title the very next night, like when he beat SCSA in a first blood match.
 
There are so many ways this storyline could go. I just hope Brock is around enough so it doesn't look like a one on one fued.

A one day title reign would be a huge mistake. If they go through with Reigns dethroning Brock, than it will certainly be less of a deal if Lesnar dropped the belt here only to regain it. 

Still want Braun to win it here though.

Is that leaked info or is that complete speculation phrased as insider knowledge? Makes no sense to me but it's something people were throwing around just after Summerslam when Mahal was champion.

This triple threat does nothing for me and I suspect it's going to be a poor match whenever Kane is involved. Let's not forget that Braun vs Brock one on one was a bad match anyway. Once you strip away the tables and the chair throwing and the ambulance turning Braun wasn't able to put on a good performance.

I'd really like to see WWE focus on putting over Braun's bearhug submission finisher a bit more; it could add so much to matches like these. Brock's match with AJ showed that a strong submission finisher can really give your opponent an opportunity to sell and make you look like a big deal.
