2018 WWE Royal Rumble Matches, Card, Date, Predictions
Royal Rumble: The Royal Rumble 2018 is just one days away, the WWE Network and PPV on Sunday, January 28. For the 1st time in the event’s history, the card for this event looks a small light. However, Royal Rumble match will likely take up a majority of the night.
Here Is The List Of Players
The current list of entrants in the 2018 Men’s Royal Rumble Match, it didn’t take long to find that one male participant. Looking back through the event’s history, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin holds the record for winning the most Royal Rumble’s in 1997, 1998, and 2001.
John Cena continues to prove he loves a near unfeasible challenge. He tying Austin’s record is his most focused goal, and then, sure, to again main event at WrestleMania. With a ring filled with increasing talent and those with years of experience, John Cena is one who can change direction at any moment, making him the most dangerous person in the battle.
After wrapping The Marine 6: Close Quarters, The A-Lister persistently pursued Roman Reigns’ international Championship until Raw 25, where he managed to overcome The Big Dog and begin his eighth “awesome” reign with the workhorse title. The calculating and inarguably talented Superstar brings his title.
Inaugural Universal Champion Finn Bálor has been especially focused on retrieval the Royal Rumble Title that he helped usher into survival and that was meanly ripped from him less than 24 hours after he won it. The 2018 Men’s Royal Rumble Match presents the Bálor Club leader his next chance to secure that golden chance. There’s no deny Bálor has more bluster in his step since reuniting with Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson.
The King of Strong Style has kept a comparatively low profile of late, so he might not be the one man you would imagine going the distance in the Men’s Royal Rumble Match. But the intangibles he is overcome from Day One are still there. He is got the inbuilt skills and the competitive drive. He is lingered in or around SmackDown LIVE’s main-event scene since his debut. And having come up short a couple of times in big title matches, he has the advantage of experience on his side. There is approximately no WrestleMania prospect more salivating than AJ Styles defending the WWE Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura.
Baron Corbin excels when there is confusion in the ring. After all, he won the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal in his WWE debut, and Baron is a former Mr. Money in the Bank.
The Lone Wolf even had an inspiring showing in his Royal Rumble Match debut, in 2017, throwing out Braun Strowman and showing no fear in the face of The Undertaker.
The 6.8 foot Lone Wolf has the size, the bad anger and the opportunistic character to dominate a Royal Rumble Match, and he is balanced to end the 2018 edition as the last man standing.
The loveliness of the Royal Rumble Match is its unpredictability. Every longtime WWE Universe member has the same childhood memory on the day of the over the top show nervously awaiting the start of the Royal Rumble Match and in fact believing that everybody had the chance to main event WrestleMania if they could just outlast the pack. Thus, enter Tye Dillinger.
The Bulgarian beast will march into Philadelphia and defeat the opposition while cementing his spot in a championship match at WrestleMania Rusev has the wonderful combination of power, speed and quickness necessary to survive the every man for him fight. Behind the power of The Super Athlete’s crushing kicks, this Rusev Day will be a especially cheerful one, as the Royal Rumble becomes the Rusev Rumble!
Survival is the name of the match in the Royal Rumble, and who has perfected the skill of survival any better than Kofi Kingston in the annual January dance. Kofi has dazzled the WWE Universe by avoiding removal via walking on his hands, pogo-stick chairs and death-defying leaps from the barricade back to the ring. This time, he won’t just turn in a jaw-dropping feat or two to momentarily stave off elimination. He will avoid elimination altogether.
