After a long hiatus, Hacksaws back baby!!! Here with my thought on the upcoming RoyalRumbles, the male and female versions respectively
The First ever All Female Royal Rumble.
A historic landmark in WWE history( cause it’s been done before everywhere else) is the momumental all female Royal Rumble. 30 woman from the roster, excluding the two champs Charlotte and Alexa, set to go all out for a number one contenders spot at Wrestlemania. Standouts for favorites are Asuka, NiaJax and the rumored debut of RondaRousey. I would love to see someone like Bayley or an upstart from NxT win it. Another thought I had is, are WWE gonna let the women take over the top rope elimination bumps? Hope it’s not all knocked off the apron eliminations. As it shows in the promotional poster, there are 18 confirmed females in the match, which leaves 12 open spots for returns or call ups. Here’s who I think should fill out those twelve spots
As for the Male royal rumble, my pick to win is Shinsuke Nakamura. He’s floundered for a while since his debut in wwe last year, so I think giving him the Rumble as his first big win in his wwe career would be good to build him up, plus it gives the wwe universe and pro wrestling fans Styles vs Nakamura at Wrestlemania which would definetly be money. You alway have to keep your fingers crossed that WWE has learned from the last several rumbles how the crowd reacts to Roman reigns when he comes out to the Rumble. Let’s not have him win again. Same goes for Orton. My Iron man pick (guy in the Rumble the longest but comes up short) is Rusev. The last few rumbles have been Blah for The Bulgarian Brute, and the fact that he’s over like Syrup covered Pancakes, gives me the hope that he will get a great run in this years match. I also think an Nxt call up is gonna impress as well. Don’t forget about John Cena…hes Duke Nukem(more on that soon)
As for the rest of the card. I could really care less about the whole ShaneMcMahon/DanielBryan fued with the wwe championship as a backdrop to this. It’s AjStyles vs KevinOwens and SamiZayn for the belt, and if Zayn and Owens win, they become co-holders of the WWE title. I’m not interested in the drama with Shane and Daniel, because I’m already sick of ShaneMcMahon. To me he was never anything special. He peaked with his KingOfTheRing match with Angle in 2001.
Brock vs Strowman vs Kane will be a car wreck. They will destroy the whole arena. Strowman will look amazing in this match but will not take the title home. Expect Brock to win by pinning Kane. Brock vs Roman is planned for Wrestlemania, so we have that to look forward too.
Out of the two tag matches, the one for the Smackdown tag titles is most interesting to me, as Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable take on The Usos, who are the currently tag champs and best tag team in wwe right now. It’s a two out of three falls match so expect awesomeness from these four men. Expect a lot spots and big bumps in this hard hitting match. My prediction? Usos Retain.
