If WWE is planning to collide Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns at WrestleMania, one of them will lose their Championship at Royal Rumble because title unification is unlikely going to take place. Hence, the chances of Roman Reigns losing his title are more than that of Brock Lesnar.
The Miz and Maryse would find a way to win the match unfairly because they have got an evil mindset. Big Time Becks seems the clear winner over Doudrop.
Men’s Royal Rumble can be won by AJ Styles or else it can be apart from the 25 confirmed participants.
While there is speculation of Ronda Rousey making a return and winning the Women’s Royal Rumble match. Our prediction would be Shayna Baszler or Alexa Bliss. But if Ronda returns, you know who has got the upper hand.
The match card is star-studded and we are in for an entertaining night. Stay tuned and stream live on your Apps or Channels because you don’t want spoilers heard before seeing the event.
And make way for Road to WrestleMania!
