2017 Royal Rumble Match

This is the only match that we know for sure will take place, even though we don't have any of the specifics. Is it going to be a 30-man like normal, or will it be a 60-man now that there's a wider roster and you can include NXT stars and the like?

The only confirmed participants so far are Goldberg and Brock Lesnar and I don't think either will win as they'll get in each other's way, but wrestle again in a regular match at WrestleMania.

A year ago, I thought a babyface Seth Rollins would win. He did turn face, but they clearly want to do a match against Triple H instead, so I'd take him out of the running.

Right now, the two people that stand out to me the most are Finn Balor and John Cena. If Balor is back from injury, he can definitely win and challenge Kevin Owens for the Universal Championship, but that's still up in the air. More than likely, I'd bank on John Cena being the winner so he can challenge and defeat either AJ Styles or The Undertaker at WrestleMania to win his 16th world championship.

CONFIRMED ENTRANTS: 1) Goldberg, 2) Brock Lesnar

PREDICTION: John Cena wins.

PREDICTED MATCHES (as of 12/5/2016)

Let's take a look at some of the potential matches that seem as though WWE will be adding...

WWE Universal Championship Match: Kevin Owens (c) vs. Chris Jericho

Sooner or later, they know they have to do this match. Why not do it here and Elimination Chamber or Fastlane, depending on which one is the Raw-branded event?

PREDICTION: Kevin Owens wins.

WWE World Championship Match: AJ Styles (c) vs. The Undertaker

With The Undertaker returning and saying he'll be back for more than just WrestleMania, I think we're having a title match lined up with him against Styles, as that match has never been done before. Here's the kicker, though: does Styles retain and lose to John Cena at WrestleMania, or does The Undertaker win the belt and lose it to John Cena at WrestleMania? If The Undertaker loses the match, who costs him the victory? It would have to be someone to set up a match against The Phenom, and there aren't too many people who could be good in that position. Samoa Joe would be an interesting pick if they move him up to the main roster. Roman Reigns would be amazing as he'd turn heel and that needs to be done. Dean Ambrose would be another good option, I think.

PREDICTION: AJ Styles retains.

WWE Raw Women's Championship Match: Sasha Banks (c) vs. Nia Jax or Emmalina

Whoever she starts the next feud with, I think she'll have a match both at Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber / Fastlane.

PREDICTION: Sasha Banks retains.

WWE SmackDown Women's Championship Match: Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Naomi

Nikki Bella should be busy with Natalya and I can't imagine the Bliss vs. Becky Lynch feud keeps going another two months, so Naomi seems to be the next best option.

PREDICTION: Alexa Bliss retains.

WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match

I have no idea, but I wouldn't be shocked if Rich Swann isn't the champion at this time.

PREDICTION: Too early to call.
