2017 began with a bang with two franchises of the WWE putting up some incredible displays. However, the prime attraction of the month remains to be the pay-per-view show, WWE Royal Rumble. The stage is set for some incredible display, and we are here with all the possibilities regarding who can win the 30-man Battle Royal. Besides the Battle Royal, we have a number of one-on-one matches lined up which is bound to grab the attention of all the followers of wrestling across the world
WWE Royal Rumble 2017: Battle Royal
The Battle Royal is the prime attraction of the WWE Royal Rumble which involves as many as 30 contenders. The contenders enter the ring on the basis of serial numbers provided to the contenders in the lottery which is performed at the beginning of the encounter and the players take the court after every 90 seconds. The trend has been such that the players who take the court in the latter part of the encounter have a better chance to win the encounter.
And as the WWE rumours and news have stated, we have a number of heavyweights taking part in this year’s WWE Royal Rumble which has made it really interesting for the fans who have been speculating the probable WWE Royal Rumble 2017 winner. We already have had ten big names who will feature in this year’s show. The list includes Bill Goldberg, Brock Lesnar, Big E, Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods, Chris Jericho, Braun Strowman, Baron Corbin, Seth Rollins and The Undertaker.
Among the participants who could be the possible winner of the PPV, we have Baron Corbin. He has the dubious record of most number of eliminations, but he has the Giant Battle Royal title behind his name which he won in 2016. So that makes him one of the contenders who can possibly win the WWE Royal Rumble 2017.
The possibility of The Undertaker winning the title is less, but you never know. He has been one of the most popular figures in the history of WWE. So one cannot simply wipe way the probability of The Undertaker winning the title in this year’s PPV.
The fans will also be eager to see two of WWE’s immensely popular figures – Goldberg and Brock Lesnar fighting it out inside the ring yet again. In the Survivor Series, Goldberg simply demolished Lesnar as he defeated him within one and a half minute. Following that Goldberg has been found revealing the fact that he wants to reign the scenes for one more time which has given rise to the rumours that Goldberg might just clinch the title. Also, chances of Brock Lesnar stealing the show cannot be eliminated completely. In fact, Brock Lesnar is also regarded as one of the top competitors who have the probability of winning the title. Also, the feud between Brock Lesnar and Goldberg could well lead to yet another one-on-one encounter between these two at the WWE Wrestlemania 33 which is the most popular among all the PPV shows of WWE.
Besides these, we have Bray Wyatt and Finn Balor who have a good chance of bagging the title. WWE news has come in from various sources that Finn Balor could well be the champion of the Battle Royal in the WWE Royal Rumble 2017. We have previously reported that the return of Shawn Michaels could also be one of the centres of attraction in this edition of the PPV. So, with still more than a couple of weeks to go before the event, we might see the scenario changing with few more entries yet to be made.
WWE Royal Rumble 2017: Other Clashes
Kevin Owens vs Roman Reigns
Among the much-awaited clashes in the WWE Royal Rumble 2017, we have the Kevin Owens vs Roman Reigns encounter where Chris Jericho will be suspended over the ring inside a shark cage. It will be really interesting to witness Kevin Owens fighting it out against Roman Reigns in the absence of his friend Jericho and win the WWE Universal Championship title. Roman Reigns is a clear favourite in that clash as he has defeated both of them previously and it remains to be seen whether he manages to do the same yet again or not.
Charlotte Flair vs Bayley
The WWE Raw Women’s Championship title is also scheduled to take place during the WWE Royal rumble 2017 which will engage Charlotte Flair and Bayley. Charlotte has proved her dominance over Sasha Banks on a number of occasions and it will be really interesting to find out if she manages to keep up her good show against Bayley as well. However, Bayley has won two matches against Charlotte which did not have any title, so Charlotte will definitely find it difficult to win the match and get the title to her.
AJ Styles vs John Cena
Yet another exciting show is going to be the AJ Styles vs John Cena encounter which is slated to take place in the WWE Royal rumble 2017. The two was on the stage a few days back in the WWE Smackdown where they signed a contract regarding fighting it out inside the ring. So it will also be one of the most exciting encounters which will surely attract the eyeballs of the followers of the WWE events across the world.
