2017 Royal Rumble Match (30-Man Royal Rumble Match for a World Championship Match at WrestleMania 33)
Predictions & Winner: This…is the big one. The 30-man Royal Rumble Match is extremely hype due to all the standout Superstars involved this time around. The Undertaker has thrown his name into the hat. Goldberg and Brock Lesnar have vowed to battle it out during this match. Plus the domineering Braun Strowman, Baron Corbin, the entire Wyatt Family and even Sami Zayn have chosen to get in on the festivities. As far as surprise entrants go, expect to see some legends show up (our gut is telling us Sean Waltman could be one of those guys). Texas wrestling luminaries, such as Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Stan “The Lariat” Hansen and even JBL seem like sure-fire entrants that will show up to get that hometown pop.
By the way, we think two NXT call ups will take place here for Samoa Joe and Entry #10 Tye Dillinger. We’re going out on a limb here for stating this, but we can totally see Finn Balor shocking the world by returning like Cena did in 2008. Kenny Omega’s totally not showing up, though. When Goldberg and Lesnar finally lock horns in the middle of the ring, they’re going to eliminate each other at the same time somehow and carry on their war to ‘Mania 33. And Orton will finally carry out his master plan by breaking up The Wyatt Family by causing them to argue and then eliminate them both. So our final four picks for this Rumble are looking like it’s going to be ‘Taker, Zayn, Balor and Strowman. Who will ultimately prevail? THE UNDERTAKER! He’s going to get the hometown Texas win and go on to challenge whomever holds the WWE Championship after SD Live’s Elimination Chamber.
