Bryan should win, but he will probably be eliminated by someone from the Authority which then leads to a 'main event match' at mania where he has the chance the end the auhtority once and foreall
I would much rather see Bryan vs Lesnar, Ziggler vs Rollins (with the authorirty stip, it just makes sense for Ziggler to want to end them once again), Rusev vs Reigns (WWE want to push Reigns and ending Rusev's streak is a pretty big deal)

Reigns/Rusev is also what I had in mind for Roman. Look, the guy is just not ready for a main event title run. He desperately needs a secondary title run and it could also add some relevance to the US title. Even last night though...that was probably one of Rollins' weakest recent matches and it was mainly because Reigns just isn't a good singles wrestler. I'd much rather them have Reigns end Rusev's streak rather than pointlessly feed Rusev to Cena. I can't help but think Cena ends up in this Authority nonsense at WM.

Honestly, I think Philly will want Reigns to lose more than they'll want Bryan to win. So, given the WWE's brilliant track record...
"She might have 12 times the knowledge and experience of wrestling that I do, but this kid's probably never dropped out of high school & made her parents cry, probably never had to quit being an idol thanks to depression, probably never failed the job interview for an escort club. I got my own 12 years of experience."
I say either have Reigns decide to stay out of the Rumble so he can get his hands on Big Show and segue that into a feud with Rusev, or have Lesnar drop the title to Cena, have Rollins cash in on him, then have a pissed off Lesnar bump into Reigns in the back and come out and cost him the Rumble out of spite to set up Reigns retiring him at Mania. No way Reigns should be in the main event closing out the show - either see if Rusev can carry him to a decent slugfest or have him outright squash Brock, those I'd say are the safest bets. See if he's ready for the push by SummerSlam and if so do it then.
