WWE Royal Rumble 2018: Predictions And Card For The PPV

29 January, 2018, 02:51 | Author: Julio Duncan
  • Ric Flair won the Royal Rumble in 1992

You sign up for the WWE Network without a commitment.

SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: The Usos vs Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin. Maybe, but neither of them will win the match.

The reason she's returning to wrestling: "I retired pretty much 4 years ago and I didn't really have any intention of going back or making any kind of come back or even wrestling for any other promotion like TNA". Then Kane gets beat, but that sets up a possible Strowman vs. Kane match at WrestleMania, where the story is that Kane cost Strowman the Universal Title.

This year's Royal Rumble is looking a lot like 2015, which can't be good for the city of brotherly love.

Or will Owens & Zayn keep on to run roughshod over Team Blue by benefitting from their numbers advantage which is added in the WWE Championship to their arsenal? "We got a bit of criticism for breaking character that night but it was the best way to for these women to appreciate the moment". While she lost the match, the Indian wrestler made a fantastic impression.

"Since 2016 we have had the first ever women's Hell in a Cell match, the first ever women's Money in the Bank match and then in December in Abu Dhabi we had the first WWE women's match in the Middle East for the WWE women's championship".

A very odd match, considering that it's for the WWE Championship.

The WWE Championship match gives us the opportunity to see the first ever "Co-WWE Champion" when A.J. Styles defends against both Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn in a handicap match. There's one scenario, though, that would see the crowd devolve into anarchy, again.

Roman Reigns is Ric Flair's favourite
GETTYRoman Reigns is Ric Flair's favourite

He has played a prominent part in TV storylines, and the seeds have been sown for a feud against the WWE Champion, AJ Styles, but I can't see it being anything else than a non-physical role.

Speaking of The Undertaker entering the Royal Rumble to set up big matches...

Judging by previous Men's Royal Rumble matches, other wrestlers usually fill these spots. So expect the company to pull out a few special tricks this time.

The biggest enduring rumor has been whether or not Ronda Rousey might make her debut as a WWE performer during the Women's Rumble. The former UFC Champion recently ruled out an appearance at the match, telling TMZ Sports in an interview that she is actually leaving to Colombia to finish shooting Mile 22. What do you guys think? Taker and Reigns later faced off in the WrestleMania main event, and Taker hasn't wrestled since he was defeated by The Big Dog. Cena has become a bit-part player over the last couple of years but you know he will be in a featured match at Wrestlemania. My picks for who will win the rumble matches.

We already had a mini-reunion of sorts when several of WWE's most iconic women took to the stage at RAW's 25th Anniversary show, including The Bella Twins, Michelle McCool, Kelly Kelly, Torie Wilson, Trish Stratus, Jacqueline Moore, Maryse, Maria Kinellis, Terri Runnels and Lilian Garcia, but none of them announced their participation in the Rumble match.

Before the ring is constructed, the team builds the office-like structure known as "Gorilla Position", where Vince McMahon watches each show from, which is the last place WWE stars enter before coming out from behind the curtain.

The favorite, unless Braun Strowman loses his title match and is a surprise entrant, is Shinsuke Nakamura.
