2018 Royal Rumble Match

At the very least, we know that this is going to be a confirmed match, and everything is so far in advance that it's incredibly hard to be able to tell what is going to happen.

Still, it's worth giving a shot, so at the very least, I think we can narrow down the list to just a few potentials.

At the top of the list is Roman Reigns, who will challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship. Basically, if anybody from Raw wins, it will be him and nobody else. Not a single other person is going to challenge Lesnar other than Reigns.

On SmackDown, however, there's more flexibility. We could see Shinsuke Nakamura win to challenge AJ Styles or we could see John Cena win and challenge Jinder Mahal, if he gets the title back from Styles.

If Cena is going to win, I would not be surprised at all if the final two are Cena and Reigns so Cena can eliminate him, somewhat cancelling out the Reigns victory over him at No Mercy. On the other hand, if this is Nakamura's victory or if Reigns is going to win, then I don't have a clue who the final two will be. Reigns and Joe maybe? Nakamura and Owens?

PREDICTION: Roman Reigns wins. Might as well just do it. It isn't like that isn't their top priority anyway. I'd rather see Reigns win the Elimination Chamber to earn the right to challenge, but they'll probably do some dumb Lesnar title defense in that instead.

PREDICTED MATCHES (as of 11/10/2017)

Universal Championship Match: Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Finn Balor

Snooze. I couldn't care less about a mismatch pairing between a guy with little charisma and another guy who needs a mouthpiece where the outcome was obvious well over a year ago.

PREDICTION: Brock Lesnar wins.

WWE Championship Match: AJ Styles (c) vs. Randy Orton

Random hunch. If Mahal wins the title back at this point, then this will be Styles against Mahal, possibly. Another alternative for Styles would be Rusev.

PREDICTION: The champion retains, whomever it is.

Women's Royal Rumble Match

I don't think they'll necessarily do this, but there's more of a chance that they'll do it this year than any other year before. They have enough people if they include NXT and Mae Young Classic women in the mix along with both Raw and SmackDown's rosters, obviously. If they do have this match, I think it's Asuka's to lose.

PREDICTION: Asuka wins.

I invite everybody to dive in and try to test their psychic skills by posting comments below of what they can imagine happening and we'll see who ended up being closest next January! Over the course of this year, I'll be filling this out with several shots in the dark of my own idea of some matches we might be getting.

This page will be altered to reflect newer opinions whenever new information about this and surrounding events takes place.
