Predicting the Rumble…

It’s fun to try and predict what we think will happen during the Rumble. Sometimes it’s what we would like to see happen, and other times it’s what we think will actually happen. Do our picks align with yours???

SINGLES &TAG MATCHES

  • Kevin Owens vs. Roman Reigns (Universal Championship): Kevin Owens; This will lead to an Owens and Jericho Universal title feud.
  • AJ Styles vs. John Cena (WWE World Championship): AJ Styles; AJ win cleans.
  • Charlotte Flair vs. Bayley (Raw Women’s Championship): Charlotte; Charlotte doesn’t win clean & keeps her ppv record going, hopefully to set up another match at Wrestlemania.
  • Neville vs. Rich Swann (Cruiserweight Championship): Neville; He’s the King of the cruiserweights and has uplifted the 205 division.
  • Becky Lynch, Nikki Bella, & Naomi vs. Alexa Bliss, Mickie James, & Natalya: Becky, Nikki, Naomi; This is a pointless match.
  • Kickoff Show: Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax (kickoff show): Nia Jax;
  • Kickoff Show: Cesaro & Sheamus vs. Anderson & Gallows (Raw Tag Team Championship): Cesaro & Sheamus; Their reign will continue.

THE RUMBLE

  • #1: Jack Gallagher
  • #2: The Miz
  • #30: Finn Balor
  • Surprise Entrant/s: Samoa Joe, Tye Dillinger, Tyler Bates, Finn Balor (side note: I would love to see HBK, Kurt Angle, Pete Dunn (he had a great showing in the UK tourney & should receive a contract), & Kenny Omega as well, but they aren’t part of my top 30)
  • Iron Man: Sami Zayn
  • Eliminates the Most Competitors: Braun Strowman
  • Final Four: Samoa Joe, Finn Balor, Jericho, Sami Zayn
  • Game Play (things that will happen during the match): Miz gets #2 spot b/c he gets punished by Daniel Bryan during the pre-show. Sami Zayn is #4. Undertaker will come out early, to get the nostalgia competitor out of the way. Goldberg comes out at #22, Lesnar at #25. All action stops and they take each other out. Tye Dillinger will be #24 because WWE won’t put him at #10 b/c that’s what the fans want. During the final four, Jericho eliminates Zayn, Joe eliminates Balor, then Joe eliminates Jericho.

    Winner: Samoa Joe (Challenges AJ Styles)


SINGLES &TAG MATCHES

  • Kevin Owens vs. Roman Reigns (Universal Championship): Roman Reigns; Chris Jericho will escape the cage, but will still cost Owens the match via code breaker.
  • AJ Styles vs. John Cena (WWE World Championship): John Cena; Cena will win this, maybe even with a low blow type of element. I have been sensing a slow heel turn for Cena since his return (his promo’s have had a tinge of heelness) and this would be the perfect way to do a double turn.
  • Charlotte Flair vs. Bayley (Raw Women’s Championship): Charlotte Flair; Finally Bayley will get to show off her skills in the ring, and why she deserves to be at the top of the card for the women’s division. However, Charlotte will be victorious due to outside interference (I’m thinking either Sasha(start of heel turn) or Dana Brooks).
  • Neville vs. Rich Swann (Cruiserweight Championship): Neville; Neville is on fire right now. He is exactly what the cruiserweight division needs right now. Hopefully they allow them time to put on a proper and exciting cruiserweight match.
  • Becky Lynch, Nikki Bella, & Naomi vs. Alexa Bliss, Mickie James, & Natalya: Becky, Nikki, Naomi; I expect Naomi to shine in this match & pin the champ. Everyone will have their spots, and while Becky, Mickie, Nikki, & Nattie are preoccupied with each other, Naomi will take down Alexa. I also think this will set up something in the future  for these ladies, either a triple threat between Naomi, Becky, & Alexa, OR, a women’s Elimination Chamber match!
  • Kickoff Show: Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax (kickoff show): Nia Jax; Sasha will put up a good fight, but she will come up short.
  • Kickoff Show: Cesaro & Sheamus vs. Anderson & Gallows (Raw Tag Team Championship): Cesaro & Sheamus;

THE RUMBLE

  • #1: Sami Zayn
  • #2: Finn Balor
  • #30: Kurt Angle
  • Surprise Entrant/s: Samoa Joe, Tye Dillinger, Kurt Angle, Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts
  • Iron Man: Sami Zayn
  • Eliminates the Most Competitors: Braun Stroman
  • Final Four: Sami Zayn, Chris Jericho, Kurt Angle, Finn Balor
  • Game Play (things that will happen during the match): Goldberg & Lesnar will have a faceoff during the match while everyone else in the ring sits back and watches. Ellsworth will enter during this and quickly be eliminated. The Undertaker will then enter and all action will stop again. Lesnar will eliminate Goldberg, Taker will eliminate Lesnar, Kane will eliminate Taker. Stroman will enter and clear the ring & beat the record. Zayn will eliminate Stroman by using his own momentum throwing them both over the top rope, but will hang out a la Shawn Michaels. The Wyatt family will also have a face-off. Bray will eliminate Harper, and Orton will eliminate Bray. When down to the final four, Kurt Angle will eliminate Balor, Jericho will eliminate Angle, and Zayn will eliminate Jericho because Jericho will be celebrating eliminating Angle.

    Winner: Sami Zayn (Challenges Smackdown Live Champion)


SINGLES &TAG MATCHES

  • Kevin Owens vs. Roman Reigns (Universal Championship): Kevin Owens retains. I see Jericho still finding a way to interfere in the match.
  • AJ Styles vs. John Cena (WWE World Championship): John Cena; Cena wins to collect that 16th title reign but he will cheat to win it. Maybe by holding the tights. Itll be heelish but not full on Heel.
  • Charlotte Flair vs. Bayley (Raw Women’s Championship): Charlotte Flair; but with Outside interference from A returning Dana Brooke.
  • Neville vs. Rich Swann (Cruiserweight Championship): Rich Swann Retains; I believe Neville is up next and this is his best work since NXT but Swann isnt ready to let go of the title.
  • Becky Lynch, Nikki Bella, & Naomi vs. Alexa Bliss, Mickie James, & Natalya: The Heels take this one; I see becky taking the pin from Mickie. Id be willing to bet money we see a Mickie and Nikki spot based on the Fact they both were apart of the Cenation. 😂
  • Kickoff Show: Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax (kickoff show): This match ends in DQ or count out with sasha being the aggressor. This is the type of challenge i have been waiting for Nia to have. Banks isn’t an easy win.
  • Kickoff Show: Cesaro & Sheamus vs. Anderson & Gallows (Raw Tag Team Championship): Cesaro and Sheamus win; I don’t see this being a memorable match only cause something is off with Sheamus/Cesaro.

THE RUMBLE

  • #1: Goldberg (I believe he is being built up as unstoppable.
  • #2: (insert midcarder)(guessing Mojo)
  • #30: Undertaker
  • Surprise Entrant/s: Beth Phoenix(HOF rumors),Stone Cold, Kurt angle, SamoaJoe, tye Dillinger, Pete Dunn
  • Iron Man: Goldberg
  • Eliminates the Most Competitors: Braun
  • Final Four: Goldberg, Brock, Taker and Braun
  • Game Play (things that will happen during the match): Kofi Royal Rumble shenanigans, a head scissor take down styled elimination , someone being outside for a bit of the match but coming back in. Goldberg eliminates braun, Brock Eliminates goldberg and Undertaker eliminates Goldberg
  • Winner: Undertaker
