How the men's Royal Rumble could shake out, from Nakamura to Reigns and beyond

HHH Going Live This Weekend, Fans On RAW Stars In The Women's Rumble, Controversial Eliminations

For 2018, that match concept is being applied to the women. We're long overdue for a truly satisfying Rumble victor and Reigns simply does not fit that description. The reported plan is for Reigns to face Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title at WrestleMania. That's why Nakamura winning the Rumble makes a ton of sense.

Kane's involvement seemed odd, but I think he's there to take the loss in the match.

I don't really understand this match whatsoever. It is what we expect from the Rumble.

While WWE is being criticized for developing the glass ceiling they claim they want to break, superstars are simply excited to be involved in history-in-the-making.

I hate to say it, but I'm leaning towards a Roman Reigns victory on Sunday night.

The particular moment when she held Dakota completely up in the air turned into a viral image.

There are some others who might be worth a side-bet or two including Sasha Banks, Bayley, Nia Jax, and Becky Lynch, but most fans portray Asuka as the woman to to beat. The girls are getting longer matches and cool stories and characters and I'm super proud of it. If not, then it's a great way to add even more shock when she walks into the ring Sunday. However, this doesn't mean she enters straightaway into the main roster.

Meanwhile, Rousey echoed Triple H's statement in her latest TMZ Sports interview. This year's event is extra special because for the first time in history, there will also be a 30 women over-the-top-rope Royal Rumble match. The different spin I am putting on her win is that I could easily see Asuka coming in at number 1 and going the distance. For months fans debate which wrestler has paid their dues and is ready for the main event of WrestleMania. Instead, only the person who scores the pinfall or gets the submission will be the champion.

After losing non-title singles matches to Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens on the 26 Dec and 2 January. This would also save the heels from taking a credibility killing loss, though obviously there are other ways to accomplish that. They will compete in a best-of-three-falls handicap match. Nakamura and current WWE champion A.J. Styles had a brief stare-down, followed it up by trading some offensive moves, and the WWE universe ate it up. Elias always had the look and the tools while competing at live events in NXT and now that he's perfected his gimmick, his mic work has grown drastically and he's built a nice following because of it. Aiden English is a former NXT Tag Team Champion and he's found a nice spot for himself as Rusev's "encouragement specialist". He's not scheduled to win that though, and it wouldn't surprise me if he pulled double duty.

Last year, Apple launched a first-of-its-kind App Accelerator in Bengaluru and it has already trained thousands of iOS developers. That said , someone else may be able to replicate the problem in the future and upload it themselves to reinstate the attack.

The tag titles are all set to come in the line from both RAW and SmackDown with Seth Rollins & Jason Jordan which is for defending the RAW titles against Cesaro & Sheamus.

Will Braun Strowman get "these hands" on the Universal Title?

The Usos retain the Smackdown Tag Titles. At most, we can hope for a couple of NXT call-ups.

"I'm actually leaving to Colombia right now to finish shooting Mile 22, and I won't be back until mid-February."
I doubt this will happen, but I'd love to see Neville return, blow off the cruiserweight division, and take his heel act to Smackdown. The Kickoff will also feature the United States Championship Open Challenge, Gallows & Anderson vs. That's not a comment on the rape allegations.

Dreamer: "I will do anything for any wrestling company". It's hard to pick a result without knowing both participants, but I have a 50/50 shot.

But out of Balor and Shinsuke it is Bobby Roode whose star is shining brightest, which should be no surprise. This seems like a good time to give Dash and Dawson the win back to extend the feud. Now I'm aware that he showed up in 2015 to help Roman win the ruble, but I can't explain this one logically.

"Name the time. Name the place", Rousey told the WWE stars in a tense standoff.

However, there's a two-hour pre-show that includes preliminary matches and an all-star panel.
