Royal Rumble predictions for tonight

Tonight is a very interesting night. Now that we know that The Rock is in Philadelphia and is likely to be on the Royal Rumble pay-per-view, this opens up a ton of possibilities for the Rumble match and the title match. Here is what I predict will happen tonight. My main focus will be on the main matches.

The Usos (c) vs. The Miz & Mizdow – The Usos will win this one and they will tease more trouble between Miz and Mizdow.

Paige & Natalya vs. The Bella Twins – Paige and Natalya will win. I think Paige turns on Natalya on Raw to set up their feud.

New Age Outlaws vs. The Ascension – The Ascension will win this since the idea is to put them over after what happened to them on Raw.

30-man Royal Rumble match – this one has to go on early because of what happens with The Rock and Brock Lesnar. The Rock gets a late number and ends up being one of the final four guys in the ring along with Roman Reigns, Randy Orton, and Daniel Bryan. Lesnar interferes in the match and gets The Rock eliminated. So we’re left with Bryan, Orton, and Reigns. Bryan wins the Rumble and he’s going on to WrestleMania to face the champion. I can’t see them letting Reigns win it this year out of fear that the crowd will turn on him. His time will come but just not this year.

Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Seth Rollins vs. John Cena – this one is interesting. Since The Rock is coming back i’m assuming that it will be Brock Lesnar vs. The Rock at WrestleMania so Brock needs to lose the title here because there’s no way Rock is going to challenge for the title again. So Seth Rollins gets pinned by Brock Lesnar. The Rock them comes out and hits a Rock Bottom on Brock Lesnar and then Rollins decides to cash in his briefcase and then gets the win. He goes on to WrestleMania.

So there you have it. I believe WrestleMania 31’s top matches will be: Brock Lesnar vs. The Rock, Bray Wyatt vs. The Undertaker, Roman Reigns vs. John Cena, Daniel Bryan vs. Seth Rollins for the WWE title.

EDIT: I saw Tom’s comment below. I should have mentioned that the reasoning for Cena vs. Reigns is that both guys need a big match so they could have the young lion trying to beat the old lion. They don’t have to have a nasty grudge. It could be like Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart in 1996 or The Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels where both guys have mutual respect for each other and things get a little bit tense between them as they get closer to WrestleMania. I would even have Cena beat Reigns and then have Reigns beat Cena next year for the title.

EDIT 2: They need a match for Randy Orton so i’ll predict a Randy Orton vs. Dean Ambrose match at WrestleMania. This year’s show has the potential to be one of the most stacked WrestleMania’s in years.
