The 2017 Royal Rumble pay-per-view will occur The month of january 29, 2017 in the Alamodome in Dallas, Texas. Follow along for spoilers and knowledge around the event’s card, selection of matches and news concerning the pay-per-view.
2017 Royal Rumble Match
Last year, I figured a babyface Seth Rollins would win. He did turn face, however they clearly wish to perform a match against Triple H rather, so I’d take him from the running. Then, I managed to move on to some 50/50 shot between John Cena and Finn Balor, with my thought to be the Undertaker would lose to AJ Styles in the Royal Rumble and Cena would will continue to win his 16th world title at WrestleMania in the Phenomenal One. Clearly, that went your window when Cena was announced to challenge for that title rather from the Undertaker.
Then, I began thinking it was Chris Jericho’s to win as he’d replace Finn Balor (who most likely will not return over time) because the opponent for Kevin Owens. However, on The month of january ninth, Jericho won the U . s . States Championship from Roman Reigns, which now makes me nervous that Reigns will defeat Kevin Owens for that Universal Championship and also the Owens/Jericho match goes from the primary event to some midcard match for that U . s . States title rather.
In the end individuals twists and turns, Now i are saying my #1 suspect may be the Undertaker, however this is way from the guarantee. They still keep advertising Elimination Chamber like a SmackDown event, which may mean in my experience that the Raw superstar logically wins the Royal Rumble. I am hoping they do not result in the mistake of getting Reigns beat Owens and Strowman win the Royal Rumble, because it will backfire and inflate within their faces.
I am wishing for Jericho to challenge Owens for that Universal Championship since that reduces the Reigns/Strowman possibility and pushes them lower to some midcard feud, that we think works better on their behalf, as WWE damn sure better have discovered their lesson in the past couple of years that fans will not tolerate Reigns to be the go-to guy for WrestleMania for some time (and bear in mind, I do not dislike Reigns, but that is only the fact). Certainly one of individuals two matches is going to be for that Universal title as i think The Undertaker will face AJ Styles for that WWE Championship and John Cena is going to be merged with Samoa Joe.
1) Goldberg, 2) Brock Lesnar, 3) Chris Jericho, 4) Braun Strowman, 5) Big E, 6) Kofi Kingston, 7) Xavier Forest, 8) Baron Corbin, 9) Sami Zayn, 10) The Undertaker, 11) The Miz, 12) Dean Ambrose, 13) Dolph Ziggler, 14) Cesaro, 15) Sheamus, 16) Bray Wyatt, 17) Randy Orton, 18) Luke Harper, 19) Big Show, 20) Big Cass, 21) Rusev, 22) Mojo Rawley
Braun Strowman, Samoa Joe, The Undertaker, or Chris Jericho are my current top chioces. I am leaning towards Strowman challenging Reigns and Undertaker challenging AJ Styles, however with the Elimination Chamber being for that WWE Championship, this cements my pick because the Undertaker for that win.
WWE Universal Championship Match: Kevin Owens (c) versus. Roman Reigns
I am not really keen on this whatsoever, when i did not need to see Reigns versus. Owens at Roadblock, not to mention a repeat here. Sure, there is a different stipulation as now, as Jericho is going to be hanging inside a Crash Cage, but that is not adequate enough. Also, does other people obtain the feeling they did this simply to raise the sales from the Crash Cage toy for Christmas? In almost any scenario, I had been really wishing for Owens to manage Jericho at WrestleMania for that Universal Championship now that Reigns has lost the U . s . States title to Y2J, it’s making me very nervous that we’ll visit a new champion here just to setup Braun Strowman versus. Roman Reigns being for any most esteemed belt. I truly, REALLY hope WWE is not stupid enough to achieve that. Reigns and Strowman might have been for that US title and individuals could have been okay with this, plus they can’t possibly think this is the bigger match to market to audiences compared to implosion of JeriKO-but simply since it appears ridiculously stupid does not mean WWE is not capable of falling victim to this type of poor booking strategy. It’s happened before also it might happen again here.
WWE Championship Match: AJ Styles (c) versus. John Cena
I have switch-flopped about this a lot of occasions as WWE keeps altering some misconception. As of this moment, I believe Samoa Joe will interfere within this match to cost John Cena the win, beginning a feud between individuals two that will lead into WrestleMania. AJ Styles will support the title both here as well as in the Elimination Chamber, meaning he’ll will continue to fight The Undertaker at WrestleMania, when i think The Phenom is winning the Royal Rumble match.
WWE Raw Women’s Championship Match: Charlotte now (c) versus. Bayley
I have stated it before and I’ll express it again: I am completed with Charlotte now. I do not care any longer. She’ll most likely proceed to a feud with Bayley and that i will not pay much focus on any one of it because I’d rather see Bayley against Sasha Banks, or possibly Emmalina, or virtually others. I have had greater than my fill of Charlotte’s same promo she cuts each week.
WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match: Wealthy Swann (c) versus. Neville
Virtually as soon as Neville place the division on notice, this appeared such as the direction WWE was going. It appears weird to root for any title change so rapidly as we have already had TJ Perkins and John Kendrick on the top of Wealthy Swann during the period of only a couple of several weeks, but I am really digging Neville like a heel even more than Swann, and so i know who I am wishing arrives on the top here. So far as a conjecture goes, though, I am less prepared to repeat the title can change hands. I’ve got a feeling there’s enough happening only at that event they don’t wish to view it get hidden always, so I saw them suppressing and getting Neville win the title on 205 Live or at Fastlane rather.
Pre-Show Kickoff WWE Raw Tag Team Championship Match: Cesaro & Sheamus (c) versus. Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson
Two referees is going to be ringside with this match because the special stipulation behind it. I am inclined to think the titles can change hands because Gallows and Anderson weren’t announced for that Royal Rumble match, but Sheamus and Cesaro have. This really is making me think they lose the titles after which eliminate one another throughout the Royal Rumble, splitting up the Cesaro/Sheamus duo, which may also most likely mean there is a match against one another at Fastlane. Or, WWE simply has them retain and none of this happens whatsoever.
Pre-Show Kickoff Match: Nia Jax versus. Sasha Banks
My prediction is they will be causeing this to be a comparatively quick match to allow them to have a different one at Fastlane before incorporating this feud right into a Fatal 4-Method for the title with Charlotte now and Bayley at WrestleMania..
Kickoff Six-Lady Tag Team Match: Alexa Bliss, Mickie James and Natalya versus. Naomi, Becky Lynch and Nikki Bella
Very glad to determine they around the card, because it made no sense in my experience why the whole SmackDown women’s roster could be overlooked. Since there is nothing at risk here, either team could win.
