Former WCW star The Stro (formerly known as The Maestro) has published a new column at PWMania.com. Stro gives his thoughts and expert predictions for Sunday’s WWE pay-per-view Royal Rumble. Stro talks about each match at Sunday’s Rumble including the 30-man match itself and also talks on the WWE Network, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, DDP and more. Here is an excerpt from his entry:
“30 Superstar Royal Rumble match
It is everyone for themselves. So many possibilities for this year’s Royal Rumble match. We know the returning Batista will be taking part in it. CM Punk has been selected to be the no. 1 entry.

Matches like these should create new stars to be showcased for the big dance, WrestleMania.
Stro’s pick: Undecided..believe it or not“
“It was great to see my friend, mentor, former tag team partner, and wrestling legend Jake “The Snake” Roberts recently return to Old School Monday Night Raw. Saw him this past November and actually had an inpromptu match with him at “WrestleCade” in Winston Salem, North Carolina. He looks fantastic and has come back from a lot. My WCW alumni buddy Diamond Dallas Page has helped him so much with DDP Yoga which I doing myself. It’s amazing folks! Jake is a Wrestling psychology master. Have had some great matches with him over the years and learned a lot from him traveling the miles and the world. His mind never sleeps. A lot can learn from him. Jake, very proud of you brother! Love ya man! Inspiration. Hall of Fame…”
