The First Lady is back!
Here we have my five predictions for the 2020 Men’s Royal Rumble, taking place on January 26, 2020 – sound out in the comments with your predictions too.
5 Kevin Owens
KO is coming across as a real baby face on RAW at the moment and he’s feeling like someone who can eventually take Brock Lesnar’s title off him at WrestleMania 36. Not going to lie, would love to see him take out heel Rollins towards the end of the rumble and go on to win.
4 Seth Rollins
The biggest feud at the moment on RAW is between Seth and KO – until we see the likes of Brock Lesnar again. I’ve always been a Rollins fan and his recent heel turn has breathed a whole lot of life into a character who was feeling a bit stale *yep even to me, end of the day the guy is good at being bad*. If the winner of the Royal Rumble comes from SmackDown, I still think whoever comes out on top, be it Rollins or KO, they should get that chance to challenge Lesnar for the WWE Championship.
3 Samoa Joe
He’s been out and has been taking some time in the announcement booth, but I’m feeling like he is coming back (there has also been no announcement that he has called his in-ring career off either) and where better to come back than the rumble. He was recently taken out by AOP at the command of Rollins, so there is potential for a running feud that could culminate in a rumble confrontation.
2 Adam Cole
After the success that NXT is having, the rumble is sure to feature several of its stars. Adam Cole is coming off winning the Overall Competitor of the Year in the 2019 NXT End of Year Awards, and has surely cemented his spot in the rumble. Cole is also one of the most over competitors as well as being the leader of the Undisputed Era and current NXT champ - how can he not feature? His inclusion in the 2020 rumble will be a nice segue into a career in Raw or SmackDown in the near future.
1 CM Punk
We all want to see CM Punk back in the ring, and what a pop it would be for this to happen at the 2020 rumble. Since his re-emergence in November, an in ring return has been on all our minds. Let us just froth over the potential of having him come out victorious in the rumble, then going on to headline for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 36 against Lesnar.
Thanks for reading, till next time #stayheel
