Anything can happen when the clock strikes 0 at the Royal Rumble
One of my favorite things about WWE’s 4 major PPVs is that anything can happen. This Sunday we have the Royal Rumble and this year there is a lot at stake as far as future storylines. I’ve already gave my predictions for the card including a major upset but I’m also going to give you 4 things I think could happen at this year’s Royal Rumble.
4. Roman appears
Roman has been out of action since last year and I pray he has a speedy recovery. I don’t think that we will see him back wrestling so soon and if he does make an appearance in the Royal Rumble match then I would applaud WWE for actually keeping that secret. Backstage segments happen all the time and if he does appear I think the most we will see is words of encouragement from the BIG DOG to Finn Balor before his match against Brock Lesnar.
3. Horsewomen Confrontation
I’m still waiting for this feud that was actually set to cultivate at Survivor Series. Becky and Charlotte both have their interest in Ronda Rousey but no one from the 4 horsewomen of MMA has yet to make an appearance and spark the fire for the battle of the Horsewomen of MMA and WWE. The Rumble would be a great place to do this. I have bet against Shayna multiple times but I’m pretty confident that she will lose to Belair and get called up and that would be a good thing. Either a backstage confrontation or a confrontation in the Women’s Royal Rumble match would be excellent to start a feud between the 2 respective groups and maybe even have a match before WrestleMania 35.
2. Becky wins the women’s Royal Rumble
Hate it or love it the women are going to main event this year’s Royal Rumble and the only realistic question at hand is who is going to be in the main event with Ronda Rousey……THE MAN Becky Lynch of course. Becky is set to take on Asuka in a match that will surely be better than Ronda vs Sasha. I don’t think Becky will win plus Vince has bigger plans. Becky Lynch is arguably the hottest superstar in the WWE(not Ronda Rousey) and the big money match right now is Becky Lynch vs Ronda Rousey(mainly due to their promos and Becky being a badass). Just imagine it for all the naysayers. #30 and Becky Lynch music hits and she then eliminate Charlotte for the victory and call out Ronda. This would be perfect. Becky can go to Raw (Charlotte may follow) and challenge for the Raw Women’s championship and Asuka can roll on with the Smackdown Women’s championship.
1. Finn Balor gets help from the Undisputed Era
Balor is set for a big year and with that he needs a heel turn. Fans won’t boo him for getting aid in beating Brock for the title but who better to help him beat Brock then the guys who shock the system.
Adam Cole……BAY BAY!!!!!
And Roderick Strong
I’m all in on Balor beating Brock. It’s a much needed win that will give us a fresh main event for WrestleMania (*cough Rollins vs Balor). I may be wrong but I think the time of Undisputed Era in NXT maybe coming to an end and they would be looking to make a big splash in the WWE when they get called up and what better statement to make than to take down Brock Lesnar and aid Finn in becoming WWE Universal Champion.
