The Greatest Royal Rumble 2018 Predictions

WWE’s “Greatest Royal Rumble” is set for April 27th at 9AM ET. After writing a piece on the reaction of some wwe fans in the WWE Universe, it will only make sense to have some predictions as well as results when the time comes. Maybe on Tuesday Asuka can say Saudi Arabia is not ready for her….But I digress, there is alot of gold being defended during this event in Saudi Arabia, so let’s begin John Cena!!

 

John Cena vs Triple-H

Triple-H comes out on a bike, just to be cool. John Cena throws his shirt and then the bell rings. This is going to be rather interesting. With John Cena’s code name being “Shovel King” versus the “The Game”, this is a bit of a toss up. Triple-H has not won in a while. His last win was against Jinder Mahal. John Cena beat Elias Samson last. I’m going to say that Triple-H is going to pedigree Cena two or three times, with Cena still kicking out. Cena will land a Super-AA on him and win the match.

Prediction: Cena wins, adult fans cry…

 

Now for the gold….

Raw Tag Team Championship: Cesaro and Sheamus vs Bray Wyatt and Matt Hardy( vacant)

With both teams consisting of former Tag Team Champions, the outcome should be rather clear. Bray Wyatt and Matt Hardy should win this match via some “delete” chants leading to a Twist of Fate or Sister Abigail. If the team of Cesaro and Sheamus wins, their Smack Down draft would have been stupid and not give us that dynamic new team on SD Live. So that’s my guess.

Prediction: Bray Wyatt and Matt Hardy wins and recruits a local to the cult

 

Smack Down Tag Team Championship: The Bludgeon Brothers(c) vs the Usos

This is going to be potentially a show stealer. Although the Usos were “crushed” at Wrestlemania, they now have the power of Naomi behind them like never before. Be prepared to potentially see many swift kicks in this match. The speed of the Bludgeon Brothers will be pretty amazing in this match as well. The Usos had a great Tag Team Title run before this feud begins, so they will go out in a legendary performance. The Bludgeon Brother’s speed, strength and size will eventually get the upper hand though.

Prediction: The Bludgeon Brothers win, handshake to the Usos out of bro respect and love.

 

Now for the singles belts…

 

WWE United States Championship: Jeff Hardy(c) vs Jinder Mahal

I’m sure everyone is happy that it is not Randy Orton vs Jinder. This match can in theory go either way; but it will depend on the next match. I’m going to take the safer bet and say Jinder loses and then the Hardy music plays for five minutes straight.

Prediction: Jeff Hardy retains.

 

WWE Intercontinental Championship: Seth Rollins(c) vs The Miz vs Finn Balor vs Samoa Joe

The belt is basically the Miz’s belt, but sadly he will not win it at this event. Samoa Joe being a new Smack Down Live man should also be taking an L. This should be a great match. Samoa Joe will be going against Seth quite rough in this match. This may even lead to Roman Reigns screwing him over in this match. Finn Balor may take advantage of this and pin the Miz. The Balor Club needs some gold, since he is being disrespected as the very first Universal Champ.

Prediction: Finn Balor with the W.

 

Okay, now that all of the gold is out of the way, let’s move on to The Undertaker!

 

The Undertake versus Rusev in a  Casket Match

Before I write this, just wanted to say Happy Rusev Day! I know this is the Undertaker’s yard and Rusev is the underdog. He is currently being booked as a heel, while the universe treats him as a face. Rusev deserves a title run and I believe this match will start it off. I may be the only to write this in the predictions, but I think Rusev will win this and bring the good news home to Lana.

Prediction: Rusev wins, the Undertaker makes a dramatic exit of the casket

 

Now for the Heavyweight champs that run the camps…

 

WWE Universal Championship Brock Lesnar(c) versus Roman Reigns in a Steel Cage Match!

First off, this better not be the main event. The 50-man royal rumble better be the main event! So this match is going to be pretty much a Suplex City inside of a local jail for Roman. If my predictions are true about the IC Title, Roman reigns would have buried himself. Samoa Joe should interject him in the match and cost Roman the title. Brock Lesnar, being the reigning, defending, undisputed Universial Champion of the world may not need his help; but, it will be funny to see the part-timer win by “cheating” to piss off the WWE Universe even further.

Prediction: Lesnar retains, not go get ready for BackLash

 

WWE World Championship A.J. Styles(c) versus Shinske Nakamura

So, first off A.J Styles please wear a cup during this match. Shinske loves low-blowing. He is like a man who bought 2k18 just to do this all day. The face that runs the place will hit him with the Phenomenal Forearm that leads to a “KingShaZaaa!”. The match should be intense. Shinske should take the win on this one and lead to all of his public interviews on Sports Center and more being him saying, “No Speak Engrish”

Prediction: Shinske wins by cheating and leads to hilarious interviews post match

 

Now for the 50-man Royal Rumble

 

Greatest Royal Rumble Match

With fifty superstars this is a tough match to call. This is like betting it all not on black, but like 1 area in roulette. So I can pretty much assume I am going to be wrong here and let the house win. With so many dudes in this match, I will just get started off with that should happen just because… At number 10, Tye Dillinger should enter. If he does not, WWE needs to seriously consider just why. Entrant 48 will be Roman Reigns, 49 will probably be Chris Jericho. Entrant number 50 will then be Sting. Entrant number one would be Daniel Bryan, while Entrant 2 should be Big Cass. So many people will get in the ring for only 2 minutes. Braun  should eliminate about 20 guys, before the ring betrays him.  Since it’s 50-man let me just guess my Top 10 picks:

  1. Chris Jericho, the GOAT
  2. Bobby Lashly
  3. CM Punk
  4. Elias Samson
  5. Neville
  6. Andrade “Cien” Almas
  7. Big-E
  8. Kevin Owens
  9. Sami Zayn
  10. Curt Hawkins

 

Can you imagine if Curt Hawkins wins, he went from straight losses to beating 49-man in a foreign country. Imagine the chants.  Or imagine if CM Punk signed a contract without the WWE Universe knowing. That would be rather exciting as well. I have no idea who will win this one, but I think it will be a rather amazing show.

 

What are your predictions for WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble?
