Men's Royal Rumble Match: Not a real strong field this year, especially with Drew McIntyre out injured. I assume WM will be Reigns vs. Lesnar for the Universal Title so the WWE champ, whoever that is, will face the winner of the Rumble. For that, I'll say Big E.
Women's Royal Rumble Match: Bianca Belair goes two in a row.
Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley, WWE Championship Match: The belt has to get off either Reigns or Lesnar by the time the Chamber rolls around so the OTHER belt's challenger can be found there. So Lashley wins somehow, and Lesnar goes into the Chamber, wins, and faces Reigns at Mania.
Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins, Universal Championship Match, Usos barred from ringsde: Reigns wins and retains.
Becky Lynch vs. Doudrop, Raw Women's Championship Match: Doudrop earned this with some strong Raw matches against Belair. But Lynch wins.
Edge & Beth Phoenix vs. The Miz & Maryse: The babyfaces go over here, thought I wouldn't be surprised to see the heels win to lead to an ultimate blow-off between Edge and Miz.

Men's Royal Rumble Match: Does WWE give it to the hometown hero Randy Orton? Do they make you believe there's no god by giving it to Omos? I'm gonna go with a dark-horse pick here and say it'll be AJ Styles. I think Reigns vs. Lesnar vs. Styles in a triple-threat match for both belts is the main event of WrestleMania.
Women's Royal Rumble Match: Bianca Belair wins to set up a WrestleMania rematch with Becky Lynch in which a *grave* injustice is finally rectified.
Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley, WWE Championship Match: Lesnar retains. He's not going to spend this entire time talking about how Lashley's a nobody, only to lose to him. He's never been in an Elimination Chamber, and I don't think he ever will be. And I really think they're pushing towards unifying the titles (again) at WrestleMania.
Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins, Universal Championship Match, Usos barred from ringside: Reigns retains and finally beats Rollins.
Becky Lynch vs. Doudrop, Raw Women's Championship Match: Becky retains. Vince isn't going to put the belt on someone who's not conventionally attractive. And in any event, we need a big-stage Belair/Lynch rematch.
Edge & Beth Phoenix vs. The Miz & Maryse: Miz and Maryse win here, setting up a rubber match between the two men at WrestleMania.
ETA: Bold prediction: Goldberg returns in the Royal Rumble match.

Well, I think Lesnar/Reigns is still the plan, but title unification isn't, so, let's say:
Lashley Reigns Lynch Edge/Phoenix - I actually do think they're going to fight again at Mania, but I think they're doing the thing where the faces win every match, but they just keep fighting for reasons
And for the Rumbles: Big E Asuka - We can get Belair into her title match no problem, but does Charlotte even have another contender at this point?
Lesnar Rollins (to set up Reigns/Lesnar for WM) Lynch Miz & Maryse Men's Rumble: Kevin Owens (to set up a blow-off for the Rollins/Owen alliance, besides wasn't he promised the moon and stars to re-sign?) Women's rumble: returning Asuka (although par of me wants it to be Mickey James so I can shout "Forbidden Door!" a whole bunch. Be glad you don't live with me, becasue I find the phrase "Forbidden Door!" hilarious and refuse to stop saying it. Cat wants in the bedroom? Open the forbidden door! Car is locked? Open the forbidden door! Husbands trying to take a crap? Open the forbidden door! You get the idea.)
It's the most important meal of the day.
Charlotte with Rousey coming out as she is celebrating Lesnar - can't lose to a nobody with no rematch lined up Rollins somehow Reigns enters to face Brock at Mania Lynch Edge & Beth hopefully Surprise entrants - Kane, Moose, someone who is a Cody tease and Spike Dudley.
Reigns Lesnar Lynch Edge & Beth Men's Rumble: Big E Women's Rumble: Bianca
The Men's Rumble is a total crapshoot as there's no obvious winner at all, just like there's no obvious option of who will someday defeat Reigns (unless it's Lesnar... because why build a new main eventer?).
