    This lineup looks solid. The outcomes may be predictable. But who isn’t going to enjoy the Rock regaining the title (much like Hogan regaining it when he pinned Triple H)? It’s good nostalgia, even if it’s temporary.

    I wish Daniel Bryan could win the match and “avenge” his 18 seconds loss from last year. I think his chances are even closer to null now

  • good card, rumble match should be very entertaining, rock v punk will be great i fully expect, tag title match is potentially 3 stars or show and the world title match shud be decent to good
