Original Royal Rumble Plans For The Big Show Revealed

What was the plan?
- The original plan for The Big Show at the Royal Rumble was to face Brock Lesnar with Show as a main event player by the time the PPV arrived. The plan was discussed before WWE unified the titles when Show was feuding with the Authority. He was expected to get big victories over Randy Orton and Triple H, without winning the title, to end up looking strong for a match with Brock Lesnar at the Rumble. Lesnar would then defeat Show to look strong for his match with Undertaker at Wrestlemania 30.
It's unknown if this is still the plan moving forward now that Show has been phased out of a program with Orton/The Authority after losing at Survivor Series, but it was the plan as of a few months ago.
