PPV Predictions: Royal Rumble 2017
Royal Rumble 2017
WWE Tag Team Title Match:
(c) Cesaro & Sheamus vs Anderson & Gallows
This feud has been building for a few weeks and with two referees involved in this match we will see a decisive winner tonight. The one problem brought on by the New Day having such a long run with the titles was that they had to defeat so many of the same teams over the course of their reign which may have hurt the division in the long run. Because now this match leaves them with one choice and that is putting the titles on Anderson and Gallows or risk them losing all credibility. This is why Anderson and Gallows will win this one.
Sasha Banks vs Nia Jax (Draw)
Note: The six women tag match had already before I started the PPV predications with that being the case I am not going to predict that match)
WWE Cruiserweight Championship:
(c) Rich Swann vs Neville
Since the debut of the division back in September the WWE has been trying to build the division from the ground up and I for one don't think they have done the best job they could possibly do. But things have been changing in recent weeks since the return of Neville and his heel turn, I actually like this feud for the title. I really think that if this is done right then a heel Neville will be a great building block for the upstart division. Neville will win here to maintain and even build some momentum.
WWE Universal Championship Match:
(c) Kevin Owens vs Roman Reigns
Like everything on this card from the top bottom the idea of predictions has been done to death because the rumors have been running rampant over the last few weeks about who will be Universal champion at WrestleMania. If I am basing my opinion on the latest rumors this match goes one way and if I am basing it off my gut it goes another. So I am going to go with what I hope and that is a match with a clean finish and a strong win for Kevin Owens.
WWE Women's Championship Match:
(c) Charlotte vs Bayley
For this first time in her young career Bayley will face the women's champion on PPV in a singles match. It's been a tough road for the "hugger" since coming to the Main roster last August but things have begun to pick up recently and I think it's the right time to build on her momentum. Yes I know that the WWE has been building a "streak" for Charlotte on PPV, but there is no reason why Charlotte should keep the streak till Mania because losing it beforehand gives something to the event which she loses it. Which is why this match will be the other title change here tonight as Bayley will become Women's Champ.
WWE Championship Match:
(c) AJ Styles vs John Cena
Like everything on this card from the top bottom the idea of predictions has been done to death because the rumors have been running rampant over the last few weeks about who will be the WWE Champion at WrestleMania. However, I am not going to base this on the same rumors that I based the other title match on I will instead base my prediction on the upcoming Elimination Chamber PPV. The old problem I had with the Chamber was the terrible positioning, because the PPV was always so predictable. But this time around the WWE can change that idea by letting AJ go into the Chamber as Champion and not only set up his WrestleMania match, but at the same time a future feud for the title due to AJ not getting pinned to lose it. So with this being the case I firmly believe that AJ Styles retains the title tonight.
WWE 2017 Royal Rumble Match:
This match is always my favorite match of the year, because I am a huge fan of the battle royal concept and love the surprise entrant aspect of the match. But this year's Rumble is by far the toughest one to predicted in over a decade because of the numerous amount of possible winners in the match. From Randy Orton to Braun Strowman to Goldberg to Lesnar to Taker to a host of the others I have no idea who could or will win the Rumble tonight. Something I do know is that this Rumble will have at least a couple surprises. With the number of people in this I will not just pick one guy to win I will pick three possible winners for the match:
1) Chris Jericho
3) Sami Zayn
