Here are my predictions for tomorrow’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view event:
Pre-Show: Antonio Cesaro vs. The Miz - United States Championship
This one has been bouncing back and forth in my mind. We have been seeing Miz get the best of Antonio Cesaro as of late and we have been seeing Antonio Cesaro on a slight cold streak. However, I feel that WWE is really high on Antonio Cesaro, so I think we will see Antonio Cesaro retain the United States Championship.
Kaitlyn vs. Tamina Snuka - Divas Championship
This is not a confirmed match, but I will just put it on here anyway. I think that Kaitlyn won it too recently to lose it, but this match should spark a feud between the too, which will culminate at Wrestlemania. But for now, I think Kaitlyn is going to defeat Tamina if this match happens, considering the fact she only won it almost two weeks ago.
Team Hell No vs. Team Rhodes Scholars - WWE Tag Team Championship
The team of Kane and Daniel Bryan was an inevitability on Day 1 of Anger Management Class with Dr. Shelby. The anger management sessions and the therapy from Dr. Shelby was incredible and made for some of the funniest WWE segments since WWE went PG. However, we have been seeing a group that really isn’t that good unless they have Dr. Shelby with them. I feel that their reign as the WWE Tag Team Champions is over to Team Rhodes Scholars at Royal Rumble.
Alberto Del Rio vs. Big Show - Last Man Standing - World Heavyweight Championship
Ever since his face turn, I have become a huge fan of Alberto Del Rio. He has really grown on me as a face. Big Show isn’t really exciting me. He has been somewhat of a bore as of late. Also, Alberto Del Rio JUST won the title. So, I am predicting a Del Rio victory in what should be a great match.
CM Punk vs. The Rock - WWE Championship
FINALLY, THE ROCK HAS COME BACK TO THE ROYAL RUMBLE! The Rock has returned to challenge the reigning WWE Champion, CM Punk. We are seeing these guys come in at very even odds with equal momentum. Recently, a lot of people have been predicting CM Punk to retain against the Great One. I feel that The Rock will become the new WWE Champion in what should be an exciting matchup from start to end.
The Royal Rumble
The Royal Rumble is one of the most fun events to watch because of the surprise entrants. This year, we are getting Shelton Benjamin and Carlito, and possibly more. There are many people who have a good chance at winning the Rumble. Sheamus, Randy Orton, Dolph Ziggler. However, my pick is WWE’s Goldenboy, John Cena. I respect John Cena for what he has done outside of wrestling, but inside the ring, his promo work is OK and his wrestling work is Bah Gawd awful. It is sad, but true.
These are my predictions for the Royal Rumble. Hope to hear your predictions in the comments below. Thanks!
