Men's Royal Rumble Match: Feels like Roman Reigns is the safe bet to face The Fiend at WrestleMania; that's really the only big match that seems to be hinted at thus far. So Reigns wins.
Women's Royal Rumble: Only five wrestlers have been announced thus far, but I guess it's expected that every (healthy) active Raw and Smackdown superstar will be taking part. I think there are a couple potential winners, but what better way to introduce Shayna Baszler to the main roster than to have her win and get a one-on-one with Becky Lynch at WrestleMania?
The Fiend vs. Daniel Bryan, Strap Match for the Universal Championship: Given I'm expecting Fiend vs. Reigns at Mania, Fiend should win here. But a strap match allows Bryan to win without The Fiend losing too much of his mystique. With a Saudi show and Elimination Chamber between now and Mania, Fiend could get the title back. But I'll go with the Fiend winning and retaining anyway.
Becky Lynch vs. Asuka, Raw Women's Championship Match: Lynch avenges her loss to Asuka at last year's Rumble.
Bayley vs. Lacey Evans, Smackdown Women's Championship Match: Evans wins the title, making Bayley even more surly.
Roman Reigns vs. King Corbin, Falls Count Anywhere Match: Corbin wins, Reigns goes into the Rumble hurting and as an underdog, where WWE loves positioning him.
Andrade vs. Humberto Carrillo, United States Championship Match: Andrade wins and retains.
Shorty G vs. Sheamus: Sheamus.

Lynch, Sheamus, Andrade, and the Fiend are easy picks. The rest are a little trickier. I'll take Evans here, since the company clearly wants to make something of her, and I'll go with Reigns since everyone else is going the other way. For the women's RR, I like Baszler to follow up on both her performance at Survivor Series and last year's Mania main event with Rousey. For the men, I'm really not sure, so I'll go with a left-field choice and pick Kevin Owens.
My selections are before Smackdown so might change if I look at the results. Can't get it here on my UK Sky subscription anymore and not paying more to watch it. A lot of these are more in hope than anything...
Fiend v Bryan - Bryan wins or the strap match is a completely pointless stipulation. Yes I know that has happened many, many times over the years! Bray losing is also a bad decision but that has also happened many, many times over the years!
Corbyn so Roman has a challenger if he wins the Rumble as everyone wants to see that again in a few months time! If Roman sells well this could be good with lots interfering so he has an excuse to lose. Reality is he gets beat down by many and lands one Superman punch to win.
Lynch keeps the title.
Lacey wins the title but loses it fairly soon when Vince thinks it's a bad decision.
Andrade in hopefully a very good and exciting match. Rey might be involved, but if Dominick is as well then everyone should turn off then.
For the Rumbles...they should go brave and have Drew win. Or anyone but Roman. Regardless of his results earlier in the card he will quickly become the Roman of years ago and booed again. Cena would be better and isn't an impossible choice. I expect a Kane vs Cain moment so they can make a big deal out of the names. Not sure what they do with Brock. Dumped out immediately would be good or he needs to go to the end which isn't good. Especially if they do the injury/rolls out scenarios.
Shayna. They obviously don't care as they have named around half a dozen entrants so far. The only interesting ending would be Shayna and Ronda, but that might just be good for the day.
I think you'll also find that Jericho uses the "ASK HIM" line more often than not in situations where it's obvious the guy isn't going to give it up. It's not unlike his "Come on, baby!" w/flex cover...
