Royal Rumble 2018 Predictions
Royal Rumble 2018
WWE United States Championship:
(c) Rusev w/ Lana vs Shinsuke Nakamura
WWE Cruiserweight Championship:
(c) Murphy vs Tozawa vs Hideo Itami vs Kalisto
WWE Women's Championship Match:
(c) Ronda Rousey vs Sasha Banks
This should be one of the best matches that Ronda has had in her career so far and finally show the how talented Banks is. Sasha was one of the top talents in the NXT and never really given the opportunity to show how good she was in developmental. Rousey has really shown incredible progress in the last year especially with her in ring skill. Banks could win this match to through people off with the rumors of Rousey possibly leaving after Wrestlemania. Plus with the seeds planted at TLC last month could one of the Smackdown Live women help one of their friends get one over on Rousey setting up a possible Wrestlemania match. Either way though I think it's more likely Rousey will get the win tonight.
Smackdown Live Tag Team Championship:
(c) The Bar vs Shane McMahon & The Miz
This is the most interesting tag team in WWE, because I think most people still are puzzled by the fact that Miz & Shane are starting to team together. I question that as well due to Shane still being an authority figure on Smackdown and not just an active wrestler. Either way I do believe knowing the WWE we might see Shane & Miz get the victory tonight and really change the Smackdown Tag Team division.
Smackdown Live Women's Championship:
(c) Asuka vs Becky Lynch
Nobody has been gaining more momentum in the last six months than Becky Lynch, she is tops in the WWE next to Daniel Bryan as the most over act in the company. The question is though how does the company protect her and Asuka tonight especially leading into the "Road to Wrestlemania" well I think this depends on where this match is as compared to the other Women's Championship match. It is possible we see Ronda again cost Becky her title, but that'd be a question for how the company wants fans to see Ronda as a heel or face. Using a clean finish though I think Becky gets the win and her title back.
WWE Championship Match:
(c) Daniel Bryan vs AJ Styles
There is no doubt that this match will be an incredible back n forth match as these two have a very stable chemistry. Styles has struggled since his arrival of finding his footing outside of the WWE title picture due to poor booking he has suffered. However, since his heel turn Daniel Bryan has hit the peak of his career and by the far the most momentum he has ever had. In my opinion seeing Daniel lose would kill all of his momentum and ruin everything that has been built up. Bryan needs the victory in this match and needs to move on from AJ Styles.
WWE Universal Championship Match:
(c) Brock Lesnar w/ Paul Heyman vs Finn Balor
In the past Brock has shown how he can work better with smaller talent like Daniel Bryan, AJ Styles, and Seth Rollins. It is interesting to know that Brock wanted to work with Finn out everyone on the roster and that for once the company actually did something to make the fans happy. Now I know that a lot of people would like to see Finn get the victory, but that is highly doubtful due to it just not being right. With that being said Brock Lesnar will once again get the win in a solid match.
Women's Royal Rumble Match:
This is the one of the toughest matches to predict based on the fact that a number of surprise entries will likely find there way into the match. There are some empty spots in the match at this point and some similar names that showed up last year will likely show up again this year but won't win. Looking at the active competitors officially in the match it is hard to pick just one possible winner for the Royal Rumble match based on the direction that the company could actually go. As far as the women's match I think that Sonya Deville or Ruby Riot will get a solid performance in the match. Looking the iron-man performance I think either Deville, Riot, or Ember Moon should get this as a way to set some foundation up for the reminder of the year as these three could be future stars in the Women's division. With that being said I will select either Charlotte, Alexa Bliss, or Bayley will get the win the Rumble.
Men's Royal Rumble Match:
This is the one of the toughest matches to predict based on the fact that a number of surprise entries will likely find there way into the match. Annually we always have a lot of special surprises in the match and even though I am unsure that any big free agent will appear in the match and that I think more or less a lot returns from injuries will be apart of the match. Names like Kevin Owens, Bray Wyatt, Sami Zayn, Matt Hardy and others would more than likely be the surprises for the match in my opinion. I don't think that any of the surprises will likely get the victory tonight as it will depend on the plans set up for those injured talent for the big event. I think that Mustafa Ali will likely have a good showing in the match to continue his surprising push and keep the momentum going along. I think that someone like Elias or Drew McIntyre should get the Iron-man performance. In my opinion I think that Seth Rollins, Samoa Joe, or Drew McIntyre could get the win in the Royal Rumble tonight.
