9 WWE superstars most likely to win the Royal Rumble match
The Royal Rumble match is one of the most unpredictable matches in WWE history where 30 men from RAW and SmackDown compete to see who will earn a main event title shot at WrestleMania. It is indeed one of the most exciting matches in the WWE.
As much as it is fun to watch the match, it is equally fun to predict who will win the Royal Rumble match. Hence, we’ve prepared a list of 9 wrestlers who could win the Royal Rumble match and go on to headline WrestleMania this year.
9 Bobby Lashley
Bobby Lashley has been on a roll since turning heel. He has been wreaking havoc and laying waste to anyone who gets in his way. Lashley was one of the biggest superstars in TNA, and WWE must’ve brought him back for a specific reason.
Since his return to WWE, he has been stuck in the mid cards and hasn’t been involved in many noteworthy feuds. Considering the fact that it is WrestleMania season, now would be the perfect time to kickstart Lashley’s push.
WWE could have him win the Royal Rumble match and go on to WrestleMania where he will face either Braun Strowman or Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship. This could make for a very interesting match at WrestleMania which will help boost ticket sales.
#8 Finn Balor
Finn Balor debuted on the main roster in impressive fashion and was pushed into the limelight immediately. Within a month of his arrival on RAW, Balor won the Universal Championship. However, a sudden injury during his Universal Championship match against Seth Rollins derailed his push.
When he returned, he was a shadow of his former self. He failed to climb the ranks and wasn’t used properly. He spent the next year battling in the mid cards without gaining any notoriety. Despite his poor booking, Balor has still managed to garner much attention among the WWE universe.
Therefore, it would make perfect sense to have him win the Royal Rumble match and challenge for the WWE Championship instead of the Universal Championship. Finn Balor’s Road to WrestleMania could also be the road to the top of the mountain.
