Recently on the Cerrito Live Podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Jerry 'The King' Lawler recently appeared on the Cerrito Live Podcast and spoke about his return to the commentary desk for this Sunday's Royal Rumble match. But Lawler also decided to do a little predicting as well, picking a winner for the annual 30 Man Battle Royal.
The King believes that Goldberg and Brock don't need a title involved for their anticipated match at Mania to be a show stopper.
"You would think that with both Goldberg and Brock Lesnar being in the Rumble that it would come down to those two and something really big happens at the end to setup [a WrestleMania bout]. But I don't think their match at WrestleMania if that's what's going to happen. I don't think that needs any more setup. It's setup enough, so I'm not going to pick either one of those guys."
And Lawler knows that when the Dead Man is involved, all bets are off--he even did a little fantasy booking.
"Man, oh man, Undertaker. Wow, I'll tell you what I think to me, and this is just me talking as a fan. I almost wish something would happen, so that the match at WrestleMania would turn out to be a triple threat match between Undertaker, Lesnar, and Goldberg. Yeah, that would be cool. That's my fan thinking right there. Do you know what I'm going to do? I'm going to predict that it will be, I say it will either be Undertaker to win the Royal Rumble or a surprise entrant, somebody that hasn't been announced yet."
Eight spots are still available, with new surprise entrants being rumored all the time--performers like NXT stand-outs Samoa Joe and Shinsuke Nakamura, recently announced Hall of Fame inductee Kurt Angle, a returning Finn Balor, or even Kenny Omega. We'll find out on Sunday whether any of these gentlemen will be the one left standing tall at the end of the night.
