As I was in the middle of a podcast on the Jittery Monkey Podcasting Network the other night I had an idea about the Royal Rumble. It really just came to me as I was talking with Nerds United host Greg Mehochko. Instead of Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns or Bray Wyatt (Greg's pick) winning the Royal Rumble, how about someone who's not even on the WWE roster right now win...
My idea is to have someone from NXT enter the Rumble this year, just as Rusev did last year. But take that a step further and have that man WIN the event and go on to Wrestlemania to face the champion. If the champ at that time is Seth Rollins (who I think it will be), then you have two guys who've never main evented Wrestlemania stepping into that spotlight. It would be an epic opportunity to show the fans that the future is now.

I love WWE and will always be loyal to the product. But throwing an NXT guy into the immediate title picture would certainly break up the predictability we've seen through the years. I'm not giving up on Bryan, Reigns, Wyatt, Rollins or even Dean Ambrose. I think having an NXT guy in the ring defending against these guys would be phenomenal. There's a lot of talent brewing in Florida and it's time to share those guys with the rest of the world.
