WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog at JRsBarBQ.com with a preview of tonight’s Royal Rumble 2013 pay-per-view. Here are some highlights of what JR wrote about:

CM Punk vs. The Rock: I expect the WWE Title bout the close the show featuring WWE Champion @CMPunk defending against @TheRock. It will be interesting to see how the challenger will be able to morph from movie star back to his wrestling roots especially against the intense Punk who is obviously walking into the main event with a sizeable chip on is shoulder.

As I have written, I see Punk, who is extremely physical and tough, using Muay Tai kicks and strikes, in general, against Rock who never really encountered anyone of Punk’s skill set when Rock was wrestling in WWE full time.

The longer the match goes the more it would seem to favor the Champion but I’m sticking to the prediction that Punk makes one mistake, likely mental, that cost him the WWE Championship.

2013 Royal Rumble Winner: I’ve picked John Cena to win the Rumble match but in reality this could go in a multitude of ways. I still feel Dolph Ziggler will make an impact and I can’t count out Sheamus, Ryback and Orton, among others. There will be so many different stories being told within this contest which makes the Rumble match so compelling. Who leaves not only the winner but who leaves this bout with their stamp on the night such as @KevinNash and Kane, among others, have done over the years? Is Kane’s record of eliminations in the Rumble match in jeopardy tonight? I say it gets broken.
