Early Sunday, the earliest step on the Road to WrestleMania will kick off with Royal Rumble. Two WrestleMania main-events opportunities will be on the line, in addition to the Raw Women's title, and the Undisputed World titles. 

All pro wrestling fans around the world are highly anticipating this event as it is the first Royal Rumble event in the presence of Triple H as the head of the creative team.

So, here are the predictions of what pro wrestling fans could see tonight!



Mens Rumble:

Womens Rumble:

Surprises/Returns: #RoyalRumble

Raw Women's Champion: Bianca Belair (c) vs. Alexa Bliss 

Although it is not expected that Bianca Belair would lose her title before Wrestle Mania, the match may see some more developments in the story of Bliss and Uncle Howdy.

Uncle Howdy lurks in the shadows as @Alexa_BlissWWE faces @BiancaBelairWWE in an EXPLOSIVE #RoyalRumble showdown. Will there be more chaos and destruction?

As Uncle Howdy seeks to take revenge on Bliss and Bray Wyatt, so he may cost her the title shot. 

Pitch Black Match: Bray Wyatt vs. LA Knight  

There is no doubt that the return of Wyatt pleased all wrestling fans. But, his latest storyline frustrated some of the fans.

You’ll finally get to meet the man you’ve been looking for 🔥 #BrayWyatt #LAKnight #UncleHowdy #WWE #RoyalRumble #WrestlingEdits

The impressive appearance of LA Knight improved the reception of the audience for the story.

My housemate: isn’t it the Royal Rumble or something tonight?… I’m guessing you’re excited for it?

Me: #RoyalRumble#WWERoyalRumble #WWE

Until now, there are no details about the rules and the format of the Pitch Black match, but it could be ended in the favor of LA Knight.

This match would see the interference of Uncle Howdy, Bliss, or the appearance of The Fiend.

30-Woman Royal Rumble Match

Predicting the winner of this match is somehow easier than the men's contest. 

Two main names could be the top luckiest name: Rhea Ripley who is the top women's force in the roaster since joining The Judgement Day, and Becky Lynch whose return moved a lot of water in the veins of the Raw Women's roaster.

Happy #RoyalRumble Saturday

In addition, Lynch stated that she would like to be the first woman to win two Royal Rumble matches.

However, no word was given for the future of SmackDown's Women's title which could be saved for Elimination Chamber. 

Flair could join the match and be determined to win to choose her own opponent. 

2019 Women's: Bayley, Nia Jax, Charlotte Flair, & Becky Lynch

Grade: A

The second women's Rumble match is roughly better, more focused on the present & future. This was definitely Becky's night, but the other three were all credible winners which adds that much needed doubt.

On the other hand, no name in SmackDown Women's roaster could convince the eyes as a possible Royal Rumble winner.

Liv Morgan, Ronda Rousey, Tegan Nox, Sonya Deville, and Shayna Baszler no longer received any interest from the fans.

The only one who may have a good chance is Raquel Rodriguez.

If Ripley wins, she could go for the Raw Women's title as she and Bianca were part of the Women's WarGame feud. Or, she can choose Flair as Flair cost her the title last year. 

El final quedaria entre Charlotte Flair y Rhea Ripley, demostracion de calidad entre ambas, la luchadora mas dominante de WWE y la campeona maxima de Smackdown darian una gran batalla, Ripley se lleva la victoria, dejando claro a quien buscará enfrentar en Wrestlemania.

If Becky wins, she could receive one more title shot against Blair and repeat their Wrestle Mania match once again. Or, she would like to move her dispute with Flair to ring.

Don't forget that a number of debuts could take place tonight. The top predicted names are NXT entries such as Roxanne Perez, Indi Hartwell, and Toxic Attraction, in addition to the return of Naomi and Chelsea Green. 



you know the deal if you follow me

😁 Super Happy Rok-C is going to be in the Royal Rumble & co main event Vengeance Day

😡 And super fucking pissed Cora is left at home for both

I don't compartmentalize

Undisputed WWE Universal Championship: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Kevin Owens 

A lot of possibilities are revolving here. It is so hard to believe that Reigns would lose the titles before WrestleMania, but many spoilers said that he could lose the WWE title. 

Moreover, Reigns will test the loyalty of Sami Zayn to the Bloodline in the Royal Rumble. 

Fra poche ore assisteremo al match per l'Undisputed WWE Universal Title tra @WWERomanReigns e @FightOwensFight! 😮 Chi sarà campione al termine dell'incontro?

Non perdetevi #RoyalRumble, in diretta stanotte a partire dalle 2:00 e dopo on demand solo sul @WWENetwork!

As the Usos have no matches in the Royal Rumble, and their participation in the match is not confirmed they could interfere in the match.

In addition, The Bloodline could betray Reigns for Zayn, especially Jay Uso, or Zayn reunite with Owens. 

30-Man Royal Rumble Match  

The hardest match to predict! Nine years ago, everyone believed that Cody Rhodes would win the Money In The Bank, but after the injury, they believed that Rhodes would take his chance in the Royal Rumble.

It's #RoyalRumble    day! Do you think it's Seth's second Rumble win? What gear does Seth wear? Hit me with your thoughts and predictions! And if you're attending the show get in touch if you have anything of Seth to share! #SethRollins #SFNR #ROLLINSFOREVER #TeamRollins

But, some reports said that this match could have two winners! And in the case of two winners, Rhodes and Seth Rollins are the best two options due to their ongoing feud. 

🚨😱 ULTIMA HORA: Cody Rhodes NO podrá disputar el #RoyalRumble Match de mañana, ya que el evento es hoy 😭😭

Another teased name is The Rock who may make a return to challenge Reigns in the upcoming Wrestle Mania. 

Business-wise, this match is a box-office one and it will fit an event in Hollywood. 

Road to #Wrestlemania begins tonight!!!!! 🌟🌟🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩#royalrumble2023 #RoyalRumble @WWE @peacock

However, it will kill the dreams of all pro wrestling fans who dream of a strong and well-built Wrestle Mania main-event. 

This match will see different feuds such as Gunther with Mysterio or Riccochet, Lesnar and Lashley, Kross and Mysterio, Rollins and Theory, Rollins and Rhodes, or Rollins and Riddle.

Let's hope Brock Lesnar doesn't win the #RoyalRumble again this year 😂😂 (via @WWE)

A number of returns could take place such mainly Edge, Riddle, and Rhodes which is confirmed. 

Tonight is the night #RoyalRumble

More debuts could occur! The top suggested name is Nick Aldis as his contract with NWA was expired. 

Some fans suggested Jay White, however, his contract with NJPW is still active. 

Another name could make a return is Zack Ryder or Matt Corodona. Many reports previously reported that Cordona ended his ties with Impact Wrestling. 

However, Sami Zayn could be one of the top-predicted names to win the Rumble, especially after the developments of his story with The Bloodline. 

This is a phenomenal episode of OTS from @JDfromNY206 ‼️ He’s the only podcaster that tells the absolute truth without fear and I respect! This is exactly what I needed before Royal Rumble 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 #LTB #OTS
