I know wrestling fans are wondering how roadblock will shape the raw brand side of the rumble picture. But here is my prediction on what the card could possible look like at the rumble.
WWE Cruiserweight Championship Scramble
Rich Swann © vs Noam Dar vs Brian Kendrick vs Cedric Alexander vs TJP vs Kalisto
The reason why I think this should be the perfect opener for the royal rumble, the cruiserweight can get the crowd going with the spots that they do during the match especially TJP and Rich Swann, also you can add in the chance of smackdown trying to win the title to the brand.
WWE World Tag Team Championships
The New Day © vs The Club
Reason why is that New Day would have the longest reigning tenure as tag team champions surpassing Demolition reign as tag team champions. I do know that this coming monday they will be in a triple threat with sheamus and cesaro, that where the friction between those two will lead to a match leading to a number one contendership for the US title for fastlane.
Women’s royal rumble match
Becky Lynch, Nikki Bella, Tamina, Nia Jax, Carmella, Charlotte, Dana Brooke, Emmalina, Bayley, Naomi, and Natalya.
Reason for this match is pushing an idea of the winner having a chance to switch brands to chase for the brands championship. For example if Naomi wins it she could decide to go to Monday Night Raw where she could challenge for the championship.
WWE Tag Team Championship
The Wyatts © vs The Usos
Personally i think this tag team match could be a match to enjoy because the uso would be the heels in the match, and The Wyatts could be the faces during the feud for the championships.
WWE Intercontinental Championship
The Miz (w/ Maryse) © vs Neville
I know it might sound outlandish but personally this storyline could be entertaining because Heath is coming off losing the tag team championships to the wyatts, Miz is getting under the skin of Daniel bryan so this could be a match that Daniel does to shock miz with the help of Mick Foley to make miz think he might face dolph again or someone else that he has faced for the championship to give a shock factor for the fans.
WWE United States Championship
Roman Reigns vs Dolph Ziggler
Now i know people are thinking why i am choosing this matchup having raw vs smackdown matches for championships. But if Neville shocks the Miz and wins the IC champions that title can switch to Monday Night Raw, if Dolph pulls off an upset and win the US Championship and bring it back to Tuesday Night Smackdown.
Champion vs Champion
Alexa Bliss vs Sasha Banks
I would like to see the women’s champions go ahead to ahead, this would be a match that i would like to see happen.
World Champion vs Universal Champion
AJ Styles vs Kevin Owens
This is a dream match for the fans to see happen, now i know that the championships are supposed to be defend at the rumble, but this is a match that could possible happen if WWE wants to shock the fans despite the fact that i would like to see the undertaker vs AJ Styles for the champion and Jericho vs Owens for the universal championship.
