Predicting the winners of 2019 Royal Rumble PPV
The Royal Rumble is one of WWE’s longest running PPVs. It is one of the most exciting PPVs of the year largely due to the Royal Rumble match. This year the Royal Rumble is set to take place on January 27.
Being just a few days away, we decided to go ahead and name our predictions for all the matches on the main card. These predictions are based purely on the writer's opinion. Let us know your own predictions in the comments section below.
The Bar (c) vs The Miz and Shane McMahon
Predicted winner: The Bar
The Bar are a well-oiled machine in the tag team division and have been one of the most popular tag teams in WWE. On the other hand, The Miz and Shane McMahon have just started teaming together. Just the way that their team was formed seems almost too strange to be true.
However, this could be WWE’s way of setting up a storyline between The Miz and Shane McMahon for WrestleMania. Our best guess is that either Shane McMahon or The Miz will turn on each other during the match which will set up their feud for WrestleMania. Given that Miz just turned face, it will probably be Shane McMahon who will betray The Miz turning heel in the process.
This will lead to The Bar retaining their Tag Team Championships.
Asuka (c) vs Becky Lynch
Predicted winner: Asuka
This is a tough one to predict. Asuka just recently won the Smackdown Women’s Championship at the TLC PPV hence WWE may decide to let her hold the belt for a few more months. Becky Lynch is currently the most popular woman on the WWE roster.
She is getting major reactions from the crowd. Hence, WWE may have bigger plans for her at WrestleMania. They could even place her in a triple threat match against Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey.
WWE will give her (Asuka) a longer title reign to prove what she is capable of considering the fact that WWE are trying to give the fans what they want. This seems like the most logical plan going forward for WWE.
