Now all month long when the matches were announced, as soon as I knew about them, I made my prediction except for what should be the main event, the Rumble match itself, mainly because with thirty unknown superstars it was very difficult to pick a winner when you don’t know who’s entering.
But gone are the days of old and now-a-days people throw their name in the hat every year and this year is no exception as the following have already declared entry…
The Undertaker – Goldberg – Brock Lesnar – Big Show – Dean Ambrose – The Miz – Sami Zayn – Dolph Ziggler – Big E – Xavier Woods – Kofi Kingston – Bray Wyatt – Randy Orton – Luke Harper – Braun Strowman – Chris Jericho – Baron Corbin – Cesaro – Sheamus – Big Cass – Rusev.
Now the more observant amongst those visiting the Squared Circle here at Wrestling.Majormadness.co.uk may have guessed we have only twenty-one number of entries, this allows the WWE to throw in some surprises so I’m not going to wait and I’m getting to my predictions right now….so
My first pick and I am very much going with my heart on this one since he is back in the rumble and he is my favourite wrestler of all time, I am leading my picks with the Undertaker. I would love to see the dead man claim another victory in the Rumble.
My second pick and a member of my top five we needed to see win the Royal Rumble is the Big Show, the man is long overdue to win the event and it’s about time he was put back in the hunt for the gold and what better way to do so.
My last pick and one that would have made a better result in last year’s rumble match, Dean Ambrose, while the man has picked up gold, I think he was unfairly passed over at the last year’s event, he should have won it then if not for the Reigns/Triple H feud, so they owe him, to give him a Rumble victory.
