Glorious Dummy

Bobby Roode resurrected the U.S. Open Challenge at the Royal Rumble, but it seems like defending the title then kept him out of the Rumble match itself.  Meanwhile, The Miz did not defend his brand's secondary championship and got a spot in the Rumble as a result.  So, by being a fighting champion, isn't Roode ...

“Wrestler Is In A Losing Streak” Storyline/Trope
