WWE Royal Rumble 2018

Posted January 29, 2018

They will compete in a one-versus-two handicap match. Here are five guys who I see could answer the challenge on Sunday at the Royal Rumble pre-show. The main show will be telecast live from 5:30 pm IST onwards. I vote for Shinsuke Nakamura winning and getting a renewed push heading into a dream match with AJ Styles at WrestleMania.

Then we jump right into the main card.

Rousey is now in Colombia filming a movie and it seems nearly impossible she could make it back to Philadelphia to be in the match after posting an image from the set. If WWE ever needs my help, I'll help them out. Plus, Rollins deserves better. I put that match against Ricky Steamboat-Randy Savage, Ricky Steamboat-Ric Flair.

AJ Styles retains the WWE Championship. His current storyline wouldn't suggest a Rumble victory, but the likelihood of him leaving WWE for not being allowed to wrestle anymore is very high.

He coasted and floundered until a heel turn reinvigorated the character, also benefitting from acquiring a manager in the form of the crafty Zelina Vega.

WWE is more concerned with the "sports entertainment" aspect of wrestling, to the point that the word "wrestling" is outlawed on the likes of Raw and Smackdown. I can't say that I have a strong feeling about the outcome of this match.

One would think that sets up a triple threat with Roman Reigns and Lesnar at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans, but if Vince McMahon has his heart set on Reigns and Lesnar going at it one-on-one and Lesnar passing the torch, it doesn't make much sense. While it was one of the worst ones, it made him relevant. Talk about your stupid decisions.

There have been 18 entrants announced so far, including Asuka, Bayley, Becky Lynch, Carmella, Liv Morgan, Naomi, Nia Jax, Natalya, Ruby Riott and Sasha Banks. This year, the big question is will Daniel Bryan be cleared to enter the rumble, could we see Goldberg come back? Though 60 wrestlers in total will waltz into that ring looking to secure a spot in their respective championship matches at Wrestlemania, only two will leave. "I think I'm the most excited".

Who the hell knows with this one. But if that's a WWE sponsored photo, it'd be an awfully unusual tactic to paint women who wouldn't be in the match.

In this historic event, the same rules are all set to apply in this Men's Royal Rumble Match that will be also going to apply to the Women's team. But, we don't live in a flawless world. There could be some surprise that blows everyone away. That didn't happen though and just an hour into the show the Royal Rumble began.
