Haven't had much wrestling talk on here lately, but what better time to start it up then with WrestleMania season officially here starting with the Royal Rumble tomorrow night!

The past year has seen the WWE focus more heavily on building new, younger stars and there has been a changing of the guard as HBK and Batista have gone into retirement, Jericho has gone on another extended break, and HHH and Taker have battled long-term injuries.

In response, WWE has been pushing and creating new stars such as The Miz, Dolph Ziggler, Alberto Del Rio, Wade Barrett, Daniel Bryan, Jack Swagger, John Morrison, Kofi Kingston, Cody Rhodes and Sheamus.

The Rumble has expanded this year to 40 entrants, with the time between entrants staying at 90 seconds so we may have one of the longest Rumbles in history tomorrow. Here are the confirmed participants (in alphabetical order):

1. Alberto Del Rio
2. Big Show
3. Chris Masters
4. CM Punk
5. Daniel Bryan
6. Darren Young
7. DH Smith
8. David Otunga
9. Drew McIntyre
10. Ezekiel Jackson
11. Heath Slater
12. Husky Harris
13. Jack Swagger
14. John Cena
15. John Morrison
16. JTG
17. Justin Gabriel
18. Kane
19. Kofi Kingston
20. Mark Henry
21. Mason Ryan
22. Michael McGillicutty
23. Primo
24. R-Truth
25. Rey Mysterio
26. Santino Marella
27. Sheamus
28. Ted DiBiase
29. Tyson Kidd
30. Vladimir Kozlov
31. Wade Barrett
32. William Regal
33. Yoshi Tatsu
34. Zach Ryder

With 6 open slots, there should be a few surprises. Try to keep this thread spoiler-free as far as which surprise entries may have been confirmed by insider websites.

Other matches for tomorrow night:

Women's Title: Natalya vs. Laycool

World Title: Edge vs. Dolph Ziggler

WWE Title: The Miz vs. Randy Orton

I think this Rumble is pretty much wide open as to who can possibly win. I think the list of potential winners includes Cena, Punk, Mysterio, Sheamus, Del Rio, Barrett, Morrison, and any potential surprise returning entrants. I also wouldn't be surprised to see the person that loses the WWE Title match get into the Rumble as another potential winner.

Congrats to Del Rio, who I love.


But seriously, for the first time in ages I had that kid-magic feeling when santino popped back in that ring. I would have exploded if he won, even knowing that he would most likely have lost the #1 contender spot the next night.

The other interesting note is the air really went out of the crowd when Punk was eliminated. He is a classic old school professional wrestler.

The Rumble match was incredible.

And I knew it was coming but me and my friends popped huge for Booker T and Diesel. Great job by Booker, he had the crowd in a frenzy.

I can't believe how insane the crowd was for Booker and Diesel. Great to see, and I hope they stick around at least through Mania. They were both in terrific shape and we all know they can handle the microphone.

I was going insane when Santino came out from under the ring. Awesome, awesome Rumble.

Definitely always enjoy seeing him. I expect he'll get more involved in matches too as Del Rio progresses.

What do you think of how Cole has transformed over the past year? I know you used to despise his face commentating and you were also hoping for a commentator to turn heel. I think he's done a decent job as a heel commentator, although sometimes it can be annoying when he goes a little too far over the top with it.

I'm convinced it's Sting. And I'll be ecstatic if it is.
