WWE 2019 Royal Rumble Matches
Men’s Royal Rumble Match
Following the tradition, 30 men will enter into the ring in an over the top rope match in which participants have to throw the opponents over the top rope and the last man standing in the rings wins. The winner of the Royal Rumble match will have the right to challenge either WWE or Universal Champion in the upcoming Wrestlemania 35.
Last year’s Royal Rumble was quite spectacular and it gave us one of the most satisfying winners in the last few years – Shinsuke Nakamura who threw Roman Reigns out of the top rope to score his first Wrestlemania title shot. It will be interesting to see whether WWE could match their last year’s standards this year as well.
Brock Lesnar, Braun Strowman, Daniel Bryan and AJ Styles won’t be participating as they already have the title matches. But R Truth, Finn Balor, Seth Rollings, Apollo Crews, Big E, Pete Dunne, Xavier Woods, Buddy Murphy, Drew McIntyre, and many others are likely to participate.
Women’s Royal Rumble Match
Last year was recorded in Wrestling history as the first ever Women’s Royal Rumble match in Philadelphia was included in the main events where Asuka emerged victorious. 30 women wrestlers will enter into the Royal Rumble ring trying to dump each other out of the top rope to get their hands on the women’s title shot at Wrestlemania. There are only a few confirmed contestants as of now including Carmella, Lana, Bailey, Sasha Banks, and others.
Brock Lesnar vs Braun Strowman – WWE Universal Championship
Yes, Braun Strowman will once again face Brock Lesnar for his WWE Universal Championship after defeating Baron Corbin at TLC last year. Currently, Brock Lesnar has replaced Roman Reigns as the face of the WWE since Reigns is undergoing leukemia treatment. But can Braun Strowman dethrone the “Beast Incarnate” to become the new Universal Champion? It is highly unlikely since WWE will be looking at the bigger picture and Brock will set up an interesting match in the Wrestlemania as the champion now since Reigns is absent. But it is guaranteed that we are in for a treat and this match is going to be epic.
Daniel Bryan vs AJ Styles – WWE Championship
Daniel Bryan has been amongst the most popular WWE Superstars along with his “Yes” movement. But he became even interesting ever since he has turned heel. He will be fighting – The Phenomenal AJ Styles who won the opportunity of facing Bryan earlier this new year in a fatal 5-way match on SmackDown Live, for the WWE Championship.
Fatal 4 Way Cruiserweight Championship
At WWE’s Royal Rumble event, Buddy Murphy will defend his Cruiserweight Championship in a Fatal-4-Way match. The rest of the participants are still to be declared. 6 other participants will be given a chance to win a spot in the remaining 4 in the next two weeks.
WWE Royal Rumble 2019 Rumours, Match Cards, and Predictions
The feud between the former shield brothers Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins doesn’t seem to end anytime sooner. The match at TLC between them for the Intercontinental championship may have won by Dean Ambrose. Both these stars are likely to participate in the Royal Rumble match but there are good chances WWE set an intercontinental match between these two.
SmackDown Women’s Championship
Although this match is not officially announced as told earlier by SmackDown manager Paige, it was previously been announced in a WWE Main event that smackdown women’s champion Asuka will face “The Man” Becky Lynch in the upcoming Royal Rumble 2019. Maybe not official but the graphic for this match has already been published and released.
Raw Women’s Championship
Rowdy Ronda Rousey has been the limelight ever since she debuted in WWE last year in Royal Rumble. She became Raw Women’s champion in August at Summerslam and has defended her title successfully ever since. Rousey is going to the main event in Wrestlemania against either one of Charlotte or Becky Lynch. But to feed on her massive popularity WWE could put her match card in Royal Rumble against Natalya.
