The Return of Batista – Rumors have been circulating about the Animal Batista having one last run in the WWE before heading into the sunset. The Animal Batista is rumored to show up a this years Royal Rumble and shock the wrestling world again. Rumor has it he may be challenging the beast Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 34. Will The Animal show up? Time will tell.
AJ Styles retaining his WWE Championship vs Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn – AJ Styles put himself into a handicap match vs Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens at this years Royal Rumble. Even though the odds seem stacked against AJ Styles, expect the Phenomenal One to still pull off the victory. We expect AJ Styles to defend his WWE Championship at the show of shows this year so a win from AJ Styles is expected.
Finn Balor winning the Royal Rumble match – The WWE Universe would approve if Finn Balor won the Royal Rumble match and earned his rematch at the belt he was forced to relinquish. Finn Balor was the first ever Universal Champion after defeating Seth Rollins at Summerslam 2016. Finn Balor never got his rematch for the belt and what better time then now? Will The WWE pull the trigger on Finn Balor and let him win the Rumble?
The Miz winning back the Intercontinental Championship – Although Roman Reigns has had a nice run with the Intercontinental Championship it’s time for The Miz to get his belt back. The WWE will most likely have Roman Reigns in a premier match at Wrestlemania 34 so him holding onto the Intercontinental Championship doesn’t seem likely. The Miz just came back to RAW and set his sights on the big dog. The Miz may even win it back at the 25th anniversary of Monday Night Raw.
Surprise Entrants – The Royal Rumble match is infamous for its’ surprise entrants. This year will have a WWE all women royal rumble for the first time in history. So expect surprise entrants in both those matches. We Know we will be seeing Trish, Lita, and Beth Phoenix. Will we see other legendary names? I’m sure we will.
