It’s time for my favorite PPV of the year! It’s the 2019 Royal Rumble! Let’s get right to my predictions!
UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP – BROCK LESNAR (C) vs Finn Balor
If this were Demon Finn then I’d be all in on Balor. The story told makes me think Finn could pull this off. But nope. It’s The Beast.
WWE CHAMPIONSHIP – DANIEL BRYAN (C) vs AJ Styles
The New Daniel Bryan is the Champion and it’s too early to change that. Despite my beliefs.
RAW WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP – RONDA ROUSEY (C) vs Sasha Banks
Rousey. She’s not losing a big match until WrestleMania.
SMACKDOWN WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP – ASUKA (C) vs Becky Lynch
This one I have no idea. I’ll guess Asuka wins but Becky might have some more work to do later in the night.
SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP – The Bar (C) vs SHANE MCMAHON AND THE MIZ
A title has to change somewhere, right? Might as well be this one. Until Shane and Miz break up and fight at Mania.
UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP – RUSEV (C) vs Shinsuke Nakamura
On the Kickoff Show. These talents deserve better. But this story and title at this point is Kickoff show material.
CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP – Buddy Murphy (C) vs Kalisto vs Akira Towaza vs HIEDO ITAMI
I have no idea. I don’t even watch 205. Just picking a title change just because.
MEN’S ROYAL RUMBLE – SETH ROLLINS
I’ll pick Seth here. Seems that’s the way the story is heading. Well deserved.
WOMEN’S ROYAL RUMBLE – BECKY LYNCH
I want to pick Charlotte Flair for accuracy purposes. But I really want Becky to pop in at 29 and win this one!
DO THE FOLLOWING PEOPLE ENTER THE MEN’S ROYAL RUMBLE?:
BRAY WYATT – YES
Good opportunity to return here.
UNDERTAKER – NO
I wish. But it would have to mean something for Mania. I’m not sure Taker makes this Mania.
HHH – NO
Too soon from injury in my opinion.
BATISTA – NO
If HHH was then Batista would be. His pyro (if used) would be great in the baseball stadium. Just don’t see it.
KENNY OMEGA – NO
VELVETEEN DREAM – YES
Has to come in for this! Especially with his Twitter spat about knowing his worth.
ROMAN REIGNS – NO
I wish. I hope. I just don’t think it’s going to happen. #29 for his music to hit! But I just can’t see it.
Tomorrow it’s Pre/Post Show on YouTube and Social! @TheFiveStarShow
