2. Does three-times the anger spell Rumble momentum?


Following WWE Tag Team Champions Team Hell No’s lost to Team Rhodes Scholars in a non-title contest on the Jan. 7 edition of Raw, both Kane & Daniel Bryan roared back with huge singles victories over Damien Sandow and Cody Rhodes respectively this Monday.

It can’t be stressed enough that everything the four competitors do between now and their WWE Tag Team Title collision at the Royal Rumble on Jan. 27 is of the upmost importance. And while Team Hell No survived Dr. Shelby’s immersion therapy, what will happen when they join forces with The Viper tonight?

While he is no stranger to anger management himself, Randy Orton did fall to Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett and The Barrett Barrage on Monday. Determined to get back momentum and win the Royal Rumble Match in nine days, the serpentine Superstar comes together with Team Hell No to take on fellow Royal Rumble Match opposition Barrett and Team Rhodes Scholars tonight with a renewed since of determination. Will it be enough?
