Triple Z gives his predictions and analysis for the Royal Rumble.
Pre Show Match...
Triple Z: This is seriously a match? Look at the pairings? Did the Primetime Players break up? If so that's a great thing for Titus O'Neil he won't have to carry Darren Young anymore. As for the Ascension and the Dudley Boys they deserve better. What if I told you there is two former World Heavyweight Champions in this match too. Jack Swagger's career is honestly based around Zeb Colter and foreign characters. Mark Henry, is a good dynamic baby face and he now knows it's his time to step out of the spotlight. Damien Sandow? Wow haven't seen him in a long time. Why didn't he join the Social Outcasts? Sandow sadly only gets over in spurts he needs something real to get over with. Sandow can't just impersonate people, he has to become Damien Sandow. This match is a toss up, but honestly the Dudley Boys should win.
Winners: The Dudley Boys
The New Day VS The Uso's
Triple Z: This should be a short and sweet tag team match. I honestly want the Royal Rumble to get a lot of time to night more than usual. So the New Day will come out and beat the Uso's. The New Day or so overpowering that none of the baby faces in the tag division will dethrone them. Not until Enzo Amore and Big Cass get called up to the main roster.
Winners: The New Day
Charlotte VS Becky Lynch
Triple Z: Becky Lynch is my girl, I mean what a baby face. Charlotte on the other hand seems overrated. I still think Charlotte will keep the title but I think it's time for a new champion. Take the poll below!
Alberto Del Rio VS Kalisto
Triple Z: Kalisto is the next Latino star, that WWE always wanted. Earlier this year there were rumors of Rey Mysterio coming back to WWE. Rey Mysterio opted out and signed with the innovative Lucha Underground. Alberto Del Rio appeared on Lucha Underground last season. Alberto played a very good part in the show. Del Rio doesn't fit well in WWE. It doesn't matter how hard WWE tries and how good Alberto is. The man sadly can't get over with a normal audience. Del Rio's return has been anti-climatic and his return feels like Batista's comeback tour back in 2014. If WWE wants to build a star. Kalisto should win tonight, if they want to keep shoving Del Rio down the fans throats then they will have Del Rio win tonight.
Dean Ambrose VS Kevin Owens
Triple Z: I love these competitors but this mach shouldn't be on the card tonight. Ambrose and Owens are both in the Royal Rumble. Why not just continue the feud into the Royal Rumble match? Have Owens eliminate Ambrose? Why do we need another match. It will be a entertaining bout don't get me wrong but I honestly wanted the Royal Rumble match to be 40 man this year. With all the rumors of people coming into the Rumble. Plus we will get shocking surprises and returns, and don't forget the WWE has a overflowing amount of talent on the roster. Ambrose logically will retain unless WWE thinks it's necessary to give Owens the strap before WrestleMania.
Winner: Dean Ambrose
The WWE Championship Royal Rumble Match
Triple Z: Who will walk out with the championship? This is the match I am most looking forward too I hope WWE makes it interesting and it doesn't leave us in disappointment like previous Royal Rumble matches. They have really built up the Royal Rumble this year. I think the swerve will be Roman Reigns losing to Triple H in the Royal Rumble match. Could you imagine… The Motorhead song starts playing and you here "IT'S TIME TO PLAY THE GAME" then walks out Triple H? Brock Lesnar is my other pick for the Royal Rumble. You never know how this match will go so don't count out Roman Reigns.
Winner: Triple H
