Real wrestling fans already have clue of what the start of a new year brings – the always exciting and breath taking Royal Rumble Match.
The 2017’s installment of WWE’s most high-stakes battle royal, where every current wrestling high rated Superstars will participate. Goldberg, Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker, Seth Rollins, Chris Jericho and several other big name competitors will battle it out for a rich prize. That prize for the eventual winner will be a World Championship title match shot that will happen at WrestleMania 33. Along with this event’s marquee main event, several singles championship will be up for grabs during the matches that will take place before the big Royal Rumble.
Lets also look at other exciting matchups that will also take place at the Royal Rumble.
Rich Swann (c) vs. Neville (WWE Cruiserweight Championship)
Evil Neville is a godsend. While the Cruiserweight Division has struggled to truly matter on Raw, its gotten a shot in the arm thanks to Neville’s newfound heel antics. He’s been built up strongly ever since his re-introduction to the main roster and he’s heading to a showdown with the current Cruiserweight Champion. Rich Swann has been one of the more charismatic and super easy to cheer for personalities from the entire division. We’ve enjoyed his run as champion thus far and we honestly don’t see it coming to an end at the Royal Rumble.
Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Bayley (WWE Raw Women’s Championship)
Charlotte is starting to come into her own as the Queen of the Raw Women’s roster. After dealing with Banks, she’s moved on to one of NXT’s other former Horsewomen – Bayley. They’re on a collision course that will unfold during this PPV and it will be contested for the Raw Women’s Championship. Since we’ve already witnessed so many back and forth title changes throughout 2016 for the Raw Women’s Title, we don’t see that trend continuing into the start of 2017. Bayley will fight hard and look to be on the winning end during this title encounter, but Charlotte Flair will steal the win somehow and crap all over Bayley’s childhood dream.
