WWE Royal Rumble 2022 Predictions and Match Card
With several matches on the card, let's look at how the Rumble event may play out!
WWE Universal Championship Match: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Seth Rollins
Roman Reigns will face his former teammate, Seth Rollins, at this year's event. The two have developed a heated rivalry over the last few weeks. The years of history between them have only added fuel to the fire, and for the first time, it looks like The Tribal Chief's title reign might be in a lot of trouble.
Prediction: Roman Reigns
WWE Championship Match: Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Bobby Lashley
The WWE Universe have always wanted Lesnar and Lashley to face each other, and at the Rumble, they will finally be getting their wish. The two behemoths will face each other while Paul Heyman and MVP look on. Who will emerge as the champion?
Prediction: Brock Lesnar
WWE RAW Women's Championship: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Doudrop
Becky Lynch might be one woman you can never count out, but she should not make the mistake of underestimating Doudrop either. Since arriving, the newcomer has undoubtedly shaken up the women's roster and will look to solidify her run with a title win.
Prediction: Becky Lynch
Edge and Beth Phoenix vs. The Miz and Maryse
The Rated-R Superstar will team up with his real-life partner, Beth Phoenix, for the first time in his long WWE career. The Miz and Maryse are not unfamiliar with working together in a WWE ring. While that might have given them an advantage, the combined experience and ability of their opponents might give them more than they can handle.
Prediction: Edge and Beth Phoenix
30-Man over-the-top-rope Royal Rumble
Every year, the Rumble match gives someone a life-changing opportunity with a title match at WrestleMania. The one thing that's certain in this match is that nothing can be predicted.
Prediction: AJ Styles
30-Woman over-the-top-rope Royal Rumble
The 30-woman match is looking like it's going to be a who's who of the women's wrestling world. Legends like Lita, Michelle McCool, Brie and Nikki Bella, Mickie James, etc. will face the likes of modern greats, like Bianca Belair, the SmackDown Women's Champion -- Charlotte Flair, Naomi, Queen Zelina, and many others.
With rumors that Ronda Rousey could potentially return as well, there's a lot that could happen this year.
Prediction: Ronda Rousey
