WWE Royal Rumble 2017 PPV Predictions - Part 2 [UPDATED]

Jan 27, 2017

Welcome everyone to the 2nd part of my WWE Royal Rumble 2017 Predictions. If you missed Part 1, click here to see it.

In this part, I run down the rest of the card for Sunday night’s 4 hour PPV beginning at midnight Sunday 29th January on the WWE Network.

(C) = Current Champion
| BOLD = Winner of match | RAW = Monday Night RAW | SDLive: SmackDown Live | 205: 205 Live

Non-Title Matches

SDLive: Becky Lynch, Nikki Bella & Naomi vs Alexa Bliss, Mickie James & Natayla in a 6-woman tag match. PREDICTION: I can see shenanigans happening with this match which will end up with Alexa beating down Becky along with Mickie James. Alexa, Mickie and Natty to win!

RAW: Sasha Banks vs Nia Jax (Kick-off Show) PREDICTION: Nia Jax. Simply put; Destroy Sasha Banks ASAP.

Title Matches

205: Rich Swann (C) vs Neville for the WWE Crusierweight Championship PREDICTION: Neville to win. This guy has been deserving a belt since he was brought to RAW. He is at his peak right now and we need him to win!

RAW: Cesaro & Sheamus (C) vs Gallows and Anderson for the WWE RAW Tag Team Championship (Kick-off Show) PREDICTION: Cesaro & Sheamus to retain through DQ. I’m predicting a chair shot will end the match from Gallows & Anderson with a beat down and a few Magic Killers. Should be a good match!

RAW: Charlotte (C) vs Bayley for the WWE RAW Women’s Championship PREDICTION: Charlotte to retain. I don’t think that Bayley is ready for this championship. Give her another 6 months and then put the belt on her (Maybe Wrestlemania)

SDLive: AJ Styles (C) vs John Cena for the WWE Championship PREDICTION: John Cena to break Ric Flair’s streak! John would love to go to WM33 as the WWE Champ against a rubber match against AJ. This would be a good fight and I would like to see Big Match John get the win!

RAW: Kevin Owens (C) vs Roman Reigns in a No DQ for the WWE Universal Championship (with Chris Jericho suspended in a shark cage above the ring)

PREDICTION: Kevin Owens to retain. It’s kinda hard to call this. Roman has a good shot because Vince loves Roman but at the same time Kevin is a good champ. With Chris Jericho in a shark cage, he might have a couple of items in his pockets (Think back to NXT Toronto where Paul Ellering was in the Shark cage) but I would like to see Roman getting killed by chairs.

And that is my predictions, for the Royal Rumble. I will have a 3rd Part for NXT TakeOver: San Antonio with a quick predictions…I don’t watch NXT but I’ll do a simple “X v Y – PREDICTION: X.” with no explanation.
