Note(s)

With John Cena's 2008 Royal Rumble win, he will now be guaranteed the main event spot at WrestleMania XXIV and will face his choice of the WWE Champion (Randy Orton), World Heavyweight Champion (Edge), or ECW Champion (Chavo Guerrero). Needless to say, he will more than likely choose the WWE Title and Randy Orton.
