WWE Royal Rumble 2017: 10 Things WWE Must Do

Let's kickstart WrestleMania season the right way.


Christmas has come and gone, yet the most wonderful time of the year is still a couple of weeks away: the Royal Rumble.

The event and its famous match are beloved by wrestling fans around the world. No matter how lapsed you may become in your wrestling viewing habits, there's something special about the Royal Rumble and it's tough for anyone to resist the allure of the 30-man over-the-top-rope extravaganza each January.

Besides the fun of the Rumble match and the chance to see wrestlers face off that we usually wouldn't, as well as creative eliminations and elimination survivals, the bout is also generally the time of the year when WWE starts to put the wheels in motion for its big feuds and matches at WrestleMania. We expect 2017's event to be no different in that respect.

It's already one of the most open Royal Rumble matches in years and it's honestly tough to predict who'll win the coveted 'Mania title shot this time around. Whatever happens though, we're expecting big moments and surprise returns aplenty.

Here's our take on the 10 things that WWE absolutely must make happen at this year's show.
