- –– Becky Lynch vs. Doudrop for the Raw Female’& rsquo; s Championship– Edge and Beth Phoenix Metro vs. The Miz and also Maryse in a mixed tag match
A quite outstanding card. So, let’& rsquo; s reach
the predictions. WWE Champion Suit: Brock Lesnar( c)vs. Bobby Lashley This is a dream match much of us thought we’& rsquo;d never ever see, the Monster versus the Almighty.
For years, Bobby Lashley has heard the contrasts to Lesnar as well as also been called a Brock Lesnar wannabe. Both males were amateur wrestlers, both have dominating pro-wrestlers, both have actually been mixed martial arts boxers, as well as they also have the same initials.
It’& rsquo; s truly the clash of the titans tonite when Lesnar and also Lashley collide, individually, for the WWE Champion.
Now I like Bobby, as well as he was excellent as WWE Champ, however I can’& rsquo; t see Brock Lesnar of all people being a transitional champion. If they wanted Bobby as champion, he could have just as well won the Deadly 5-Way at Day 1.
All reasoning below claims Brock Lesnar keeps, which’& rsquo; s what I & rsquo; m choosing. Now will Lesnar keep and also go into the Rumble and also win it? We shall see.
Champion: Brock Lesnar
WWE Universal Championship Suit: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Seth Rollins
We’& rsquo; ve listened to a great deal concerning The Guard on WWE programming leading up to this suit. That’& rsquo; s both been trendy, as well as also dispiriting because it has in some way mored than 7 years considering that Rollins turned on Reigns and Ambrose. Where the heck did the time go?
This is a match we’& rsquo; ve seen before, as well as it has actually constantly been good. This moment, it feels a little various. Both males have been doing excellent personality work, and also Roman is finally the top man WWE invested as long trying to make him be.
While the develop has actually been fun, and the suit itself should be great, I don’& rsquo; t assume the outcome remains in question.
Roman has actually held the Universal Champion because August 30, 2020 & hellip; that’& rsquo; s 516 days. A remarkable power that isn’& rsquo; t mosting likely to end on the Road to WrestleMania. Champion: Roman Reigns
WWE RAW Women’& rsquo; s Champion Match: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Doudrop I such as both girls as well as think this should be a fun match.
WWE has done a mainly great job of building Doudrop, and also her versus Becky is absolutely an appealing as well as fresh match.
Unfortunately, with 2 Royal Rumble matches eating up concerning an hour of time a piece, I don’& rsquo; t see this match obtaining the moment that the two girls should have. Neither the moment to make it be as great of a match as it could be without restrictions.
Still, it needs to be good yet will likely have an economical, filthy finish with Becky preserving and also Doudrop looking great but being cheated. Essentially, what we saw with Liv Morgan.
I’& rsquo; m torn though, because as much as I assume the above sentence happens, I can additionally conveniently see Doudrop winning and also Becky getting in and winning the Rumble suit.
Victor: Becky Lynch
Edge and also Beth Phoenix metro vs. Miz and also Maryse
The opposite of the ladies’& rsquo; s championship, this one will likely get more time than it truly is worthy of.
I such as all four of the individuals in the match, and both couples produces a fun intergender match, yet the outcome below is basically an inevitable verdict.
I see no chance Edge and also Beth Phoenix shed this one. Should be respectable, and hopefully won’& rsquo; t overstay its welcome.
Champions: Edge and also Beth Phoenix.
30 Male Royal Rumble Match
Since this writing, there are 5 ports open. That doesn’& rsquo; t leave much for surprises. I assume one will certainly be Brock Lesnar as well as wouldn’& rsquo; t put it past them to have Veer finally “& ldquo; launching. & rdquo; That would leave three areas.
Just how is Cesaro not revealed for it? Hell, Cesaro is a man I’& rsquo;d state ought to win things. Yet, as for we know, he’& rsquo; s not also in it which & rsquo; s foolish.
The Rumble match itself is one of my favorite matches of the year. Directly, I’& rsquo;d choose a few more surprise ports since that’& rsquo; s always part of the fun.
There are numerous guys I’& rsquo;d like to see win it; AJ Styles, Kevin Owens, Chad Gable, and also obviously Cesaro.
Still, I’& rsquo; m mosting likely to need to go with my gut, as well as it’& rsquo; s stating Brock Lesnar preserves and also enters the Rumble as well as wins it establishing a Championship Marriage suit at WrestleMania.
No, I wear’& rsquo; t think we & rsquo; ll see Cody Rhodes, Jon Moxley, Chris Jericho or any kind of various other AEW star in this suit. They might have opened the so-called Forbidden Door, however that door won’& rsquo; t available to their most significant competition.
Winner: Brock Lesnar
30 Lady Royal Rumble Suit
This is most likely the much more interesting of both Rumble matches. There are 7 ports open, and that’& rsquo; s with various former celebrities already introduced.
We have the “& ldquo; Forbidden Door & rdquo; being opened right here, with existing Impact Fumbling Knockouts Champ Mickie James being in the match. That’& rsquo; s certainly interesting. Will she come out with the champion? I hope she does, that would absolutely be great to see on WWE TELEVISION.
Directly, I’& rsquo;d love to see “a & ldquo; brand-new & rdquo; face win this. That would certainly be a surprise entrant, Io Shari. I wear’& rsquo; t think she will, however that & rsquo; s what I & rsquo;d like to see. Or a returning Asuka, however truthfully I have my questions that we’& rsquo; ll see Asuka tonight. Or Bayley for that matter.
I’& rsquo;d likewise like to see Sasha Banks win it, as well as truthfully she deserves it.
As high as I hate to claim it, I wouldn’& rsquo; t be opposed to Charlotte winning as well as establishing a championship unification match against Becky at WrestleMania. That’& rsquo;d be a little to on the nose though if it additionally occurred with the males’& rsquo; s
Roar.’You can & rsquo; t disregard the elephant in the space however, and that’& rsquo; s the conjecture of Ronda Rousey. If she’& rsquo; s in it, she & rsquo; s winning it and that & rsquo; s simply all there is to it. I & rsquo; m not a fan of it, but it is what it is. Truthfully, I assume she’& rsquo;
s in it. So & hellip; Winner: Ronda Rousey
We’& rsquo; ll see exactly how the predictions end up, but no matter tonight looks like a terrific program theoretically. Plus, the Rumble suits are usually interesting to see. I’& rsquo; m pretty pumped for tonight’& rsquo; s big event. We are, officially, when driving to WrestleMania!
