The build up to this year's Royal Rumble has been hot and cold. It took awhile for the WWE to get Roman Reigns over with the WWE Universe, but they finally did. Alright, enough chit-chat. Let's make some predictions.
Royal Rumble Kickoff Match (Qualifier)
Mark Henry & Jack Swagger vs The Ascension vs The Dudley Boys vs Darren Young & Damien Sandow
Prediction: I don't mind this match to start off the show. There are a lot of good wrestlers in this match capable of making it an entertaining few minutes and everyone gets a paycheck. Nothing to complain about here.
I'll go with Mark Henry and Jack Swagger. Mark Henry will find himself into the rumble match just so they can make it a big deal when someone or 5 people throw him over the top rope. This will be a quick match no matter who wins.
WWE United States Championship Match
Ablerto Del Rio vs Kalisto
Prediction: So Alberto lost the title to Kalisto then won it back. I have to imagine he retains here. I liked it originally when Kalisto won the belt, but him losing it immediately to Alberto Del Rio was lame to me.
This will be a good match and Alberto Del Rio will retain the US Championship.
WWE Tag Team Championship Match
New Day vs The Usos
Prediction: I hope the WWE keeps New Day as champions but I have a feeling The Usos will win this one. Even though we've seen this match 2 bajillion times, this will still be one of the better matches of the night.
Your winner and new tag team champions, The Usos.
WWE Divas Championship Match
Charlotte vs Becky Lynch
Prediction: Ric Flair will somehow cost his daughter Charlotte the title this time and Becky Lynch will win. I'd much rather see just a good Divas title match but we all know Ric Flair will be half-in-the-bag wooing around the ring.
Winner via some kind of ridiculousness and new Divas champion, Becky Lynch.
WWE Intercontinental Championship Last Man Standing Match
Dean Ambrose vs Kevin Owens
Prediction: Match of the night and WWE fans are going to wish it got more time on the show. I think this is going to be a slugfest with table spots, chairs, all that good stuff. I'm betting there will be some blood in this match too.
Your winner and still Intercontinental Champion, Dean Ambrose.
The Royal Rumble Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Roman Reigns defends his belt against 29 other entrants.
Prediction: It is the Royal Rumble, there has to be some surprise entrants. Maybe Daniel Bryan will finally come back? AJ Styles? DISCO INFERNO?! I think Roman Reigns will re-break his own elimination record during this match, either that or Brock Lesnar will toss out everybody. Triple H could come back and enter the rumble and maybe even win it. There are a ton of possibilities here but I'm going to take a shot in the dark with my prediction. It is easy to pick Lesnar, Triple H or Reigns but I'm going to pick the guy who earlier in the night lost to Dean Ambrose. Maybe he joins up with the McMahons and gets some help to win the belt but I think Owens vs Lesnar at Wrestlemania would be a good match and Triple H vs Roman Reigns simply does not need the title involved in the match to sell tickets.
Your winner and new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Kevin Owens
I'm sure I will get most if not all of these wrong.
