Kurt Angle never won a Rumble... neither has Goldberg. I know they are old and part timers at best but it wouldn't be a repeat just saying...


Also Y2J is surely to be lumped into their bracket as well. As good as he is, as over as he is surely if logic dictates Taker, Goldberg or Angle are too old and not new enough then surely he isn't young or new enough either?

Kurt angle.

Many rumours have stated that both parties are looking forward for a return of kurt angle.


Wade barrett

Even though he was recently released, it was mutually done. We cannot rule out a return of wade barrett



He may not be clear to wrestle a full match, but an appearance in the RR match can be possible.


Finn Balor

Finn can still be part of the RR, He can enter at no 30, and eliminate 2-3 superstars and win the match. WWE might not put him in matches on raw so as to protect him from his injury.


The Hardy Boyz

WWE can sign them as the contract with tna is coming to an end this year. This will really make the show looks superb since wwe fans are waiting the hardy boyz making their return.



One huge surprise that wwe can offer us is sting eliminating undertaker from the Royal Rumble match. Imagine the crowd reaction, this will lead to our dream match at WM.

Going to my first WM this year so I have to admit I would love to see Kurt Angle return at the royal rumble and stick around until at least mania.


Read somewhere that Matt Hardys contract with Tna doesn't run out until Feb which is disappointing cause I would have loved to see him appear at royal rumble! Imagine the reaction he would have got!

They where low when he won it, they where low when Reigns and Rollins where champion, they have been historically low all year.


People these days are watching less television, they either catch bits on YouTube or Tevo/Sky Plus and skip stuff or they don't use things that show up on ratings lists like Firesticks with Kodi on or other streaming so as to not have to pay cable or satellite bills.


The ratings are not actually that good or accurate of a way these days to measure something. Plus Raw's arch enemy over the years, Monday Night Football in the NFL also did historically poor numbers as well this year - thus proving that less people are watching TV.

As far as surprise entrants go for the Royal Rumble, I'm expecting Finn Balor to make a surprise return. I'm also expecting Triple H to be a surprise entrant and I expect that he will be eliminated by Seth Rollins (who may end up being a surprise entrant himself somehow). I also would not be surprised to see Shaquille O'Neal show up to further his feud with Big Show. I'd hate for them to waste a spot on Shaq but I wouldn't put it past them to do so. I wouldn't be too surprised to see the losers of the WWE Title and WWE Universal Title matches make a surprise entry as well.


So far, WWE has announced 22 of the 30 Rumble Match participants as Goldberg, Brock Lesnar, Undertaker, Braun Strowman, Baron Corbin, The New Day, Cesaro, Sheamus, Sami Zayn, Big Show, Mojo Rawley, The Wyatt Family, Dean Ambrose, Chris Jericho, The Miz, Dolph Ziggler, Rusev, & Big Cass have all been announced for the Rumble.


It's still interesting to me that The Undertaker is the only one announced for the Rumble who doesn't belong to either brand. That's what makes the possibility of an Undertaker Rumble win so intriguing to me. 'Taker could potentially face Kevin Owens, Roman Reigns, AJ Styles, or John Cena at WrestleMania but WWE could also throw a swerve our way and have either the WWE or WWE Universal Titles change hands at Elimination Chamber or Fastlane. What I would find the most interesting but also the most unlikely is to have 'Taker win the Rumble then challenge for both World Titles at WrestleMania. That would definitely be something that people would not expect and just imagine if 'Taker did retire at this year's Mania having won both World Titles in his final two matches (though, arguably, I think The Undertaker's retirement should be held off until WrestleMania in New Orleans next year since it makes sense to close out his career with some sort of redemption for the streak ending the last time Mania was in New Orleans).


Also, as if it wasn't clear enough how SmackDown's women's division (and tag team division too, for that matter) is treated compared to RAW's, the 6-Woman Tag match between Becky Lynch, Naomi, & Nikki Bella and Alexa Bliss, Mickie James, & Natalya has been moved to the Kickoff. This means that the WWE Title match is the only SmackDown-exclusive match on the Rumble card.

I am really looking forward to the Rumble match. I have no idea on who will win. Usually we have a good inkling on who will win. I could see Undertaker winning especially if Cena wins the WWE Title. I am counting down the hours until it starts

Well with the build over and match day being here let's take a look at the entire announced roster and potential winners.


Goldberg is not winning he and Brock dump each other.


Brock Lesnar see Goldberg


Kofi Kingston, Big E, Xavier Woods are there to do spots, particularly Kofis annual big spot. None will win.


Braun Strowman extreme outside chance of winning but definitely a chance. Would not surprise me at all to see him pushed to the moon around WM season.


Chris Jericho two weeks ago I predicted he would win and face KO at WM for the World belt. Now I see KO losing and their WM match for the US strap instead. So Jericho probably won't win.


Baron Corbin is there to fill a spot


Undertaker has a chance to be picked as the winner.


Dean Ambrose has a chance as well but I don't think its his year.


The Miz I actually think is in the running as I think he's facing Super Shane at WM. Could he win the rumble and somehow lose his WM title opportunity due to Shane?


Dolph Ziggler nope there to job.


Sheamus and Cesaro highly unlikely


Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper nope inter group fighting will cost them.


Big Show doubt it another big guy like Goldberg will out him


Sami Zayn zero chance.

Big Cass -zero chance


Rusev Not a hope in hell


Mojo Rawley Isn't happening.


Who are the other 8 guys and could they win? Maybe yes maybe no.


I can see some of...


Seth Rollins finds a way to enter and might win


Pyscho Sid cameo. Yeah I can see this (he was champion last rumble in this arena.) He wouldn't win of course.


Samoa Joe could enter and might even win.


HHH could enter probably won't win.


Kurt Angle going in the HOF could enter doubt he would win.


KO/Cena/AJ/Reigns I could see 1 or both losers entering and winning.


I can also see 1 to 3 of the Women entering but not winning. Not sure which they would pick but I can see it. Would they pull the ultimate swerve and have the first ever Woman's rumble winner. Not happening but it would be an unexpected move if they had the brass ones to try it.

Rumor is that we will get a Bray Wyatt title win at EC and then it will be Bray v Orton at Mania for the WWE Heavyweight Championship.


Which is both good and bad at the same time because it means Bray gets a title win but it also means we get Orton in another WM title match, which at this point has been done to death.


Opens up a lot of possible matches at Mania though for the rest of the roster, something I might post about later.
