Last year saw Shinsuke Nakamura and Asuka win their respective Rumbles, although both their dreams of cashing in for Wrestlemania glory came crashing down and hard when it came time to challenge. Who will win this year? My money is on the Brooklyn Brawler finally having his title shot. I mean, he’s well overdue by now.
