ROYAL RUMBLE: What Should Happen vs. What Will Happen
Rich Swann (C) vs. Neville
What I Want To Happen: Neville has always been a talented athlete, but a boring character. I like his move to the cruiserweight division where it seems more action based than storyline driven. I would like to seem him come out on top in this match.
What I Think Will Happen: As the cruiserweight division continues to grow the theme seems to be a traveling title. It seems the easiest way to keep attention is to keep the belt moving. I anticipate Neville coming away victorious.
RAW WOMENS CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Charlotte Flair (C) vs. Bayley
What I Want To Happen: I prefer Sasha Banks to Charlotte, but she is a close second. I would love to see her destroy Bayley, needless to say I’m not about that ‘hug life.’ I would actually just like to see the belt rest on a champion instead of being tossed around like a hot potato.
What I Think Will Happen:
Bayley seems destined to win this one. Ever since her debut she has been a crowd favorite and quickly climbing the ranks. I won’t say she doesn’t deserve it, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it.
UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Kevin Owens (C) vs. Roman Reigns*
*Chris Jericho will be suspended above the ring in a shark cage to prevent any interference
What I Want To Happen: Dear Vince McMahon, you’re the only one who likes Roman Reigns. Like seriously, THE ONLY ONE. That being said, in a perfect world JeriKO retains the Universal Title after obliterating Reigns.
What I Think Will Happen: I have never had the joys of watching an on the pole match unfold so I look forward to seeing exactly how Jericho will escape his shark tank above the ring. I mean lets be honest, we all know he will! Undoubtedly, his interference will cost Owens the title and begin a feud between Owens and Jericho (finishing out Jericho’s storyline before he hits the road with Fozzy). Reigns will become World Champion and the whole WWE Universe will be bored to death AGAIN!
WORLD HEAVY WEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
AJ Styles (C) vs. John Cena
What I Want To Happen: This just isn’t even a fair question. I love to hate AJ Styles and a loss for him would be great for me! However, on the flip side if Cena wins, he ties Ric Flair’s record. Unless, the Nature Boy himself comes out and passes the torch, I don’t want to see Flair’s record compromised. That being said, in a dreamworld Flair comes out to interfere and costs Cena his anticipated victory. Long live the Nature Boy! Woo!
What I Think Will Happen:
Do I really need to say it? John Cena wins and ties Ric Flair’s record. Boo!
30 Man Over The Top Rope
What I Want To Happen: With 8 unnanounced entrants and no clear entrance order, its hard to predict an outcome. It would be nice to see them give Ziggler the push (again) since they seem to drop the ball every time he gets any momentum.
What I Think Will Happen: Theres usually a pretty clear winner in mind leading up to The Royal Rumble, but this year I honestly have no clue! Braun Strowman seems to be on the rise, but much to my dismay Baron Corbin and Sami Zayn stand a chance to come out on top. It does seem a fan favorite that Finn Balor makes his return and snatches up his chance to regain the Universal Championship.
