WWE Royal Rumble 2015 Preview: Matchups & Predictions

The WWE has arrived into 2015 and the Road to WrestleMania 31 is finally underway!

Once January rolls around, fans know to expect – the 30-man (with a few women thrown in from time to time) Royal Rumble. This year’s collection of WWE superstars includes a wide range of talented individuals who could realistically win the big one. Besides the marquee match at this huge annual PPV, we have a huge WWE World Heavyweight Championship match to look forward to. Current champion Brock Lesnar will defend his title in a Triple Threat Match against his rival John Cena and the wildcard known as Seth Rollins.

Here’s our matchup predictions for who we thinks going to be victorious at the 2015 Royal Rumble.

The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods) vs. Tyson Kidd, Cesaro and Adam Rose (Six Man Tag Team Elimination Match)

Predictions & Winners: Hey, did you happen to see the 1st time these teams faced off? It took place on the January 13, 2015 airing of WWE Main Event. It was surprisingly an awesome match that could fall among the endless matches among those best of 2015 wrestling lists. Check out the highlights of that match above if you missed it. The Royal Rumble 2015 Kickoff show will feature these six men engaging in a rematch, which will now fall under elimination rules. We’re expecting another awesome match here. We’re going to side with The New Day on this one. While we’d love to see the awesome duo of Cesaro and Tyson Kidd win at a PPV (we could care less about Adam Rose), we see thew happy go lucky duo of Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods taking this match with a clean sweep.

The New Age Outlaws (Road Dogg and Billy Gunn) vs. The Ascension (Konnor and Viktor)

2015 Royal Rumble

Predictions & Winners: Man…The Ascension got owned so hard on the last edition of RAW before the Rumble. The nWo, APA and The New Age Outlaws pretty much made Konnor and Viktor their personal punishing bags. Now The Ascension is prepared to get their revenge by taking on the team of “Road Dogg” Jesse James and “Mr. Ass” Billy Gunn. It’s time for The Ascension to get just a little bit of their cred back by handily defeating the New Age Outlaws. We may be one the few fans out there of this team, since we’ve followed their path of destruction on NXT. The Ascension must and will win this Sunday night. THEY HAVE TO!

Paige and Natalya vs. The Bella Twins (Nikki Bella and Brie Bella)

2015 Royal Rumble

Predictions & Winners: We totally just noticed how many tag team matches make up the card for the 2015 Royal Rumble. This one’s full of Divas this time around. Paige and Natalya will test their newfound teamwork against the Bella Twins. We hate the Bella Twins, so we’re automatically going to with Paige and Natalya. Boom! Simple prediction right there.
