30-Man Royal Rumble Match: I could see either Seth Rollins or Drew McIntyre winning this. Assuming Lesnar is still champion at Wrestlemania, Rollins makes the most sense. And really, Rollins vs. Lesnar feels like a WM match.

30-Woman Royal Rumble Match: There are so many moving parts with Ronda Rousey, Charlotte, and Becky Lynch and how to get to a Wrestlemania Triple-Threat from here. With Lynch and Rousey in other matches, Charlotte is the biggest name here. Does she win and challenge Rousey, only for Lynch to find a way into the match as well? Or the other way around? I'll go Charlotte but I'm not confident.

Brock Lesnar vs. Finn Balor, Universal Championship Match: Yeah, Lesnar wins. Balor is a nice story in finally getting this shot, and he'll probably make Lesnar look good. But I don't see him winning.

Daniel Bryan vs. A.J. Styles, WWE Championship Match: Bryan wins and retains.

Ronda Rousey vs. Sasha Banks, Raw Women's Championship Match: Looking forward to this one. Rousey wins, the two women respect each other after the match.

Asuka vs. Becky Lynch, Smackdown Women's Championship Match: I could say Lynch wins here, but there are still two (possible) PPVs between the Rumble and Mania where she could win it. If in fact she's champion at Mania. I'd rather see Asuka as champion and have the Rumble winner challenge her than to see the Rumble winner tied into the possible Triple Threat. All of that said...I'll say Lynch wins the title.

The Bar vs. Shane McMahon & The Miz, Smackdown Tag Team Championship Match: I would assume Miz and Shane win the titles before inevitably splitting up, but do they do it here in their first real outing together? WWE likes to rush things, so I'll say "yes."

Lesnar
Bryan
Rousey
Asuka - with the caveat that I think Rousey is going to interfere in this match and cost Becky the title. Asuka definitely retains, but for me it's a bit of a question mark if she "wins."
Miz and Shane - I don't know what Miz's endgame is here, but I assume it takes place at WrestleMania, so we need to stretch this out somehow
Rusev
Murphy - I don't think he drops the title until we get some more of those promised new faces

Men's Rumble - Seth Rollins makes the most sense to me
Women's Rumble - After losing the title match, Becky Lynch takes somebody else's spot and wins to get a match with Rousey at Mania.

Hey, I'm calling double wins for The Mans!

30-Man Royal Rumble Match: Rollins wins and goes to Brockamania.

30-Woman Royal Rumble Match: I think Becky and Charlotte battle for a shot at Rousey at Elimination Chamber (which becomes a mess and they both challenge at WM), so this match mainly determines Asuka's challenger. I'm going with... Shayna.

Brock Lesnar vs. Finn Balor, Universal Championship Match: Brock wins but Finn locks good.

Daniel Bryan vs. A.J. Styles, WWE Championship Match: Bryan wins and retains and we move on please.

Ronda Rousey vs. Sasha Banks, Raw Women's Championship Match: Rousey wins and the wheels continue to turn for us to finally get our heel Boss back.

Asuka vs. Becky Lynch, Smackdown Women's Championship Match: Asuka wins after Charlotte interference or something like that.

The Bar vs. Shane McMahon & The Miz, Smackdown Tag Team Championship Match: Shane & Miz become wacky tag champs who hate each other, a WWE tradition.

Rusev vs. Shinsuke Nakamura, United States Championship Match: Rusev Day continues.

Buddy Murphy vs. Hideo Itami vs. Akira Tozawa vs. Kalisto, Fatal Four-Way Match for the Cruiserweight Championship: Murphy wins and retains. He's not losing until WM.

Surprise Rumble entrants:
Men - Drew Gulak for a better 205 Live, Hornswoggle, and Kane.
Women - Most of the crew from last year, plus Shayna, Mia Yim, and Maria Menoudos.

There is a good chance some of these predictions will change after Smackdown. And possibly when I wake up in the morning after just having a few shots of whisky tonight!

I think they are going to shake things up and be controversial so here goes (remember I said I have had some whisky!)

Balor wins the title. Gets it off of Brock and on TV every week and lets there be a Brock v Brawn match at Mania without the belt.

Seth wins the Rumble as Balor v Rollins could be fun. Seems unlikely Drew won't be involved though.

Bryan wins and moves on to someone - not sure who, nor for AJ either but this has run its course. Bryan v Almas would be fun but not going to happen.

Ronda retains
Asuka retains
Charlotte wins the Rumble after eliminating Becky who gets in after being pissed at losing because of strange Rondaference earlier. This obviously depends on match placement but looks like they will end up with a Becky, Flair and Rousey match at Mania - they have a lot of PPVs to sort that though. Maybe HHH will just make the match to say he is listening to the Universe for Mania.

Shane & Miz win. Hopefully it will eventually end up with Shane turning on Miz just to be a shocking moment rather than the other way around.

Rusev retains in a quick nothing match.

Murphy retains and the match will be very good, but not seen by many.

Hopefully there will be some fun returns for the Rumble. Probably be a lot for the Women's and the ones in the Men's will be good rather than disappointing. Hopefully not a rerun of ones they have done before. I'd love to see Barrett but that is unlikely. Probably be Animal from LOD.

1) 30-Man Royal Rumble Match - Rollins wins and goes to WM.

2) 30-Woman Royal Rumble Match - Lynch sneaks her way in and wins, but fearing Lynch/Charlotte landing at the same time on the floor.

3) Lesnar/Balor (WWE Universal Championship Match) - Lesnar with multiple F5's to retain.

4) Bryan/Styles (WWE Championship Match) - Styles by DQ due to Bryan's low blow/excessive violence.

5) Rousey/Banks (Raw Women's Championship Match) - Rousey with the armbar, but Sasha will be very competitive.

6) Asuka/Lynch (SD Women's Championship Match) - Both get knocked out, double countout.

7) Bar/McMiz (SD Tag Team Championship Match) - McMahon with the Coast 2 Coast, but Miz picks up the pin, winning the titles. Will drop titles and split on one of the two PPV's before their WM match.

Kickoff matches:

A) Rusev/Nakamura (US Championship Match) - Rusev with the Machka Kick to retain.

B) Murphy/Itami/Tozawa/Kalisto (WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match - Fatal Four Way) - Murphy with Murphy's Law to retain.

30-Man Rumble: Seth Rollins is the only one who makes sense. In a perfect world, Reigns would be a surprise entrant who not only defeats leukemia, but defeats 30 other men to headline Wrestlemania in the feel-good story of the year, but I don't think we're quite there yet.
Bonus predictions: McIntyre eliminates the most people, Ali stays in for the longest time

30-Woman Rumble: Becky Lynch has to win to get us to her vs Rousy at Wrestlemania. Everyone assumes it will be a triple-threat at Mania, but I'd much rather see Charlotte face Asuka as a parallel to their fight at Wrestlemania before.
Bonus predictions: Nia Jax eliminates the most people, Bailey stays in the longest

I guess there are other matches besides the Rumble, huh?

Brock Lesner retains in a match I will probably opt to skip and go to bed instead. I don't think even the addition of Finn Balor can get me to stay awake for another suplex-suplex-suplex-F5 snooze-fest. C'mon Brock! Even John Cena now has SIX moves of Doom! You can at least add a third.

Daniel Bryan retains in a perfectly fine match. It is time for both Styles and Bryan to move on to other feuds.

Rhonda Rousey retains, but Sasha ends up looking better for it.

Asuka retains, but I won't call it a win, per se. I'm going to go with Rousey-ference, but I won't rule out Charlotte-ference either.

MizMahon are your new tag team champs, but I'm not sure why. This has to be going somewhere, right?

Rusev retains in a really good match that not enough people will watch.

Buddy Murphy retains in a match that won;t get nearly enough time. Don't worry, there will be some sort of rehash on a future 205 that will get 30-40 minutes and be super rad.



It's the most important meal of the day.

30-Man Royal Rumble Match: Gotta be Rollins, right?

30-Woman Royal Rumble Match: I say Becky Lynch gets into the Rumble and wins it.

Brock Lesnar vs. Finn Balor, Universal Championship Match: Lesnar retains, but Balor puts on a hell of a show. Can we please get the belt off of Lesnar soon, though?

Daniel Bryan vs. A.J. Styles, WWE Championship Match: Bryan wins and retains.

Ronda Rousey vs. Sasha Banks, Raw Women's Championship Match: Rousey retains. Can we get a new Raw Women's Champion soon, while we're at it? (But at least Rousey is on TV every week.)

Asuka vs. Becky Lynch, Smackdown Women's Championship Match: Asuka retains, therefore Lynch goes into the Rumble.

The Bar vs. Shane McMahon & The Miz, Smackdown Tag Team Championship Match: Miz and Shane. What's the endgame here?

Rusev vs. Shinsuke Nakamura, United States Championship: Rusev retains.

Buddy Murphy vs. Hideo Itami vs. Akira Tozawa vs. Kalisto, Cruiserweight Championship: I'll say Tozawa wins the belt here.

Going on a limb here and say McIntyre wins and goes to Smackdown. Rollins seems like the only viable winner in this so I hope they curveball us.
