This year’s Royal Rumble will take place on January 26, 2020 at the Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas. It is one of the pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by WWE for their RAW and SmackDown brands.
The surprising thing about this year’s Royal Rumble is that, it will be the first time a WWE champion has chosen to participate in the 30-man Royal battle because he thinks he has no worthy competitors.
The WWE Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar will enter the match at No. 1 and will have to pin down his 29 other superstars if he is to be declared as this year’s Men Royal Rumble winner. If somebody else wins, that person will have the opportunity to choose the champion he would like to face at this year’s WrestleMania.
According to WWE.com, the entire line-up for this Sunday’s pay-per-view is as follows;
- Men’s Royal Rumble
- Women’s Royal Rumble
- Bray Wyatt vs. Daniel Bryan (Universal Championship strap match)
- Bayley vs. Lacey Evans (SmackDown Women’s Championship)
- Roman Reigns vs. King Corbin
- Becky Lynch vs. Asuka (Raw Women’s Championship)
- Sheamus vs. Chad Gable
Let’s make some predictions, shall we…
Brock Lesnar’s entry into the match is untypical but that does not mean he is going to win. This guy has never been a fan of long match and to talk of the men’s Rumble taking up to roughly Sixty minutes? Forget it, he cannot fight for that long.
Ricochet’s bravery dragged him to stand up to Lesnar on RAW not long ago. Whilst he may have a good showing, I don’t think he is going to win.
The win may end up coming to Randy Orton or Drew McIntyre based on what we have seen so far.
The women’s Rumble is a lot hard to predict because it has many talented women who deserve the big push. Talk of Nikki Cross, Naomi or Charlotte Flair.
I have no predictions on the other matches, all I’ve got to say is; may the best man win!
