2015 Royal Rumble Predictions
The Royal Rumble has arrived and the Road to Wrestlemania has begun. Here are my predictions for how each match will finish:
Kickoff Match- The New Day vs Cesaro, Tyson Kidd, and Adam Rose
The WWE seems to have run out of ideas of what to do with the very-talented-- but struggling to get over with the fans-- Cesaro, and Tyrson Kidd and Adam Rose seem to be going nowhere right now. The WWE also seems intent on pushing the New Day on fans. That means the New Day will come out on top in this match.
WWE Tag Team Championship Match- The Usos vs The Miz and Mizdow
The Usos have been great as Tag Team champs, but haven't been able to find any rivals to stick for prolonged feud-- no great tag team rivalries have existed since The Hardy Boyz vs Edge and Christian. Unless Mizdow goes face in the near future, Miz and Mizdow certainly have the makings to have a great feud with the Usos. Miz and Mizdow will to extend this rivalry to future events.
Paige and Natalya vs The Bella Twins
Paige and Natalya seem to have an uneasy alliance while the Bellas seem to be closer than ever before. In order to set up a showdown a Divas Triple Threat match at Wrestlemania 31, the Bellas win while Paige and Natalya implode.
The New Age Outlaws vs The Ascension
The Ascension seems like a team heading in the wrong direction quickly. They emerged and just looked like a cheap imitation of the Road Warriors. For the sake of keeping the fans interested, the New Age Outlaws will be victorious with a little help from some legends of the game.
WWE World Heavyweight Championship Triple Threat Match- John Cena vs Seth Rollins vs Brock Lesnar
While there seem to be leaked reports that have John Cena winning this match, that isn't necessarily what will end up happening. If Cena wins, it will be one of two ways. Either a) Sting will intervene and ensure Cena wins, or b) Cena turns heel and joins The Authority to win the title. If Seth Rollins wins, it will most likely be because he cashed in his Money in the Bank contract after either Lesnar or Cena win the Triple Threat match. Most likely, Brock Lesnar retains the title; giving the Royal Rumble match winner a more than worthy opponent for Wrestlemania. Lesnar survives both the Triple Threat and Rollins' cashing in of the Money in the Bank contract.
Royal Rumble Match
The match has at least three favorites, maybe four, to win the whole thing-- Dolph Ziggler, Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan, and, maybe, Ryback. Ryback will most likely not win because he will be built up to be the man that finally pins Rusev at Wrestlemania. As popular as Ziggler is with the fans, the creative isn't quite ready for him to win it all and headline a Wrestlemania. Reigns, many believe, will receive that big push to fight for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. The only problem is he hasn't been able to get as over with the fans as the brass believed he would-- his skill with the mic have been lacking. With the return of Daniel Bryan from neck surgery, no one is more over with the fans than he is. For that, Bryan-- the ultimate underdog-- will win the Royal Rumble match and head to Wrestlemania to face the "Beast Incarnate" Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Heavyweight title.
