WWE Royal Rumble: 5 predictions for the event
The Royal Rumble is less than three weeks away, and we can’t help but speculate about numerous matches and scenarios for the event.
Royal Rumble events are always exciting, as we get to see 30 superstars from both the men’s and women's division have their separate matches to determine the number one contender for a top championship of their choice.
The matches are packed with superstars from all three brands, and even some former stars show up to increase the hype around the match and the event.
Last year, two Japanese superstars won their respective Royal Rumble matches, and we saw Shinsuke Nakamura and Asuka get their chances at the WWE and Smackdown Women's Championships at WrestleMania 34, which both went on to lose.
Apart from the Royal Rumble matches, both the top titles of the men’s and women’s division will be on the line and we could see a couple of new champions at the end of the night.
With such an action-packed card, we can’t help but make some out-of-the-box predictions for the event which could come true and make the event more memorable.
So read ahead and check out 5 ipredictions for the Royal Rumble 2019.
#5 Seth Rollins will be the Iron Man
It is no secret that Seth Rollins is indeed the Iron Man in WWE. The man can perform in match after matchon the same night without showing any signs of fatigue and can endure a great amount of punishment.
This is exactly what is required in a superstar during the Royal Rumble match, which is a test of endurance and skills.
Rollins has a reputation of being the Iron Man, and he can prove yet again that he is one in the Royal Rumble match. Rollins lasted only 19 minutes in the 2018 edition of the match and was eliminated by Roman Reigns to end his run.
Since he doesn’t hold the Intercontinental Championship anymore and has been verbally attacking Brock Lesnar on Raw to hint towards a Universal Championship match against The Beast in the future, we could see him enter early and last until almost the end of the match to keep the fans’ hopes alive.
