WWE Royal Rumble 2014 Countdown: What If Big E Langston Won?



big-e-langston2

We’re counting down to the Royal Rumble: a variation of the traditional Battle Royal match, with a total of 30 competitors. Two WWE Superstars start in the ring, every 90 seconds thereafter another Superstar enters. A Superstar is eliminated when they’re thrown over the top rope and both feet touch the floor. The last remaining Superstar is guaranteed a championship opportunity at WrestleMania versus the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion. WWE Superstar: Big E Langston Height: 5′ 11” Weight: 290 lbs. From: Tampa, FL Championships Reigns: Intercontinental Champion, NXT Champion WWE announcer Michael Cole seems to enjoy calling matches featuring Big E Langston. Cole frequently compliments the national powerlifting champion, his most used acknowledgment refers to Langston as “a future WWE World Heavyweight Champion”. A Royal Rumble match victory for Big E could validate this proclamation. And honestly, the stout Tampa native powerhouse has to be considered a favorite. Hard-hitting, quick as cat and just as agile for a man his size, Big E has left a lasting, painful impression of his RAW and Smackdown opponents. The audience appears to believe Langston can win against anyone, and would likely support his championship efforts going into WrestleMania XXX no matter who he had to face. What do you think? Royal Rumble Winners: Jim Duggan (1988), Big John Studd (’89), Hulk Hogan (’90, ’91), Ric Flair (’92), Yokozuna (’93), Bret Hart/Lex Luger (’94), Shawn Michaels (’95, ’96), Steve Austin (’97, ’98), Mr. McMahon (’99), The Rock (2000), Steve Austin (’01), Triple H (’02), Brock Lesnar (’03), Chris Benoit (’04), Batista (’05), Rey Mysterio (’06), The Undertaker (’07), John Cena (’08), Randy Orton (’09), Edge (’10), Alberto Del Rio (’11), Sheamus (’12), John Cena (’13) About Joe Walker: Joe Walker is an award-winning columnist, celebrity entertainment and news journalist, editor, and artist biographer.
