So, let's take a look at a few of those surprises which might take place at Royal Rumble PPV. Let's get started without further ado.


#5 Charlotte Flair vs Ronda Rousey

Charlotte Flair's match with Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series PPV ended in a very unique fashion. The ending of the match saw, Charlotte Flair flipping out and senselessly destroying Ronda Rousey.

As their match ended without a winner, it won't be wrong for me to say that we will see a rematch and very soon indeed.

Yes, the things that happened post-match it seems that it was probably the set-up of their re-match which will possibly happen at the upcoming Royal Rumble PPV.

Though the match sounds pretty amazing, it will be interesting to see how WWE will book this inter-brand match as both superstars are working on different brands.

Also, Vince McMahon is considering the second option for Ronda Rousey's Royal Rumble opponent, Nia Jax.

Yes, Charlotte vs Rousey could be shifted from Royal Rumble to WrestleMania 35, be seeing the magnitude of this match. So, only time will tell if we will see this "dream match" happening this next month at Royal Rumble.

Since leaving WWE in 2004, The Rock has only made sporadic appearances. Last time we saw The Rock inside the WWE ring was at WrestleMania 32. There he fought in an impromptu match defeating Eric Rowan in under six seconds.

For a long time, The Rock is rumored to return to WWE but his filming schedule has always nixed his WWE return plans. But, this time it'll be different because The Rock has emerged as a new favorite to win the next year's Royal Rumble match.

So, basically after all these years, The Rock is highly likely to make an appearance this next month.

Though, he may or may not win the Men's Royal Rumble, if he appears then expect him to set up his potential WrestleMania match as he will not just appear at Royal Rumble PPV without something big on the line.

#3 Drew McIntyre wins the Men's Royal Rumble Match

Drew McIntyre will be definitely a part of next year's Men's Royal Rumble match if he's not booked in some another championship match.

Also currently, Drew McIntyre is tipped among several other to win Royal Rumble and go on to face Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 35 for the Universal Championship.

And McIntyre is one of Vince McMahon's favourite Superstars, his chance to win the Royal Rumble is more.

So, if Vince McMahon is really thinking to make McIntyre win it, it'll be a great decision as the time has finally come for the Scottish Terminator to move on to bigger things.

And winning the Royal Rumble will be definitely a start for him.

Only time will tell if Drew McIntyre will beat all odds to book his place on the biggest showcase of Immortals or not.

The Undertaker is rumored to retire next year at WrestleMania 35 and the superstar who is expected to retire him is none other than the HBK Shawn Michaels.

Yes, if Vince McMahon is really thinking that the time has come for The Deadman to finally rest then expect some kind of potential tease at next year's Royal Rumble PPV.

Yes, the possible angle which could lead to a match between two legends, Shawn Michaels eliminating 'Taker from the Royal Rumble to set-up a match between the two.

Just same as Roman Reigns did last year with 'Taker. And in the burning fire of revenge 'Taker challenges HBK to a match at WrestleMania, possibly announcing it a career vs career match.

So, if 'Taker would really battle HBK at next year's WrestleMania then expect them to tease it in any kind of way next month probably at Royal Rumble PPV.

#1 Becky Lynch wins the Women's Royal Rumble Match

It'll be a great idea to make Becky face Rousey at WrestleMania 35 as we'll finally get to see what we were promised this past month at Survivor Series

Since turning heel earlier this year at SummerSlam Becky Lynch has turned WWE's women division upside down. The self-proclaimed "The Man" is now being tipped to main event next year's WrestleMania alongside Ronda Rousey.

Yes, currently Becky is favored to have a one on one match against Ronda Rousey to close the biggest showcase of Immortals.

And if Vince McMahon is really thinking to go forward with the same plan then, I guess it'll be better if Becky Lynch wins the next year's women's Royal Rumble match, rather than facing Rousey in a champion vs champion match.

Because it'll give her the momentum that she has needed always as now Becky Lynch is over the top rope with fans.

And if she will win the match then, she needs to drop the title to someone first as it won't make sense for her to take part in RR match holding a championship.

So, it'll be a great idea to make Becky face Rousey at WrestleMania 35 as we'll finally get to see what we were promised this past month at Survivor Series.
