Royal Rumble 2024 Predictions

The Royal Rumble is upon us, and the air is thick with anticipation! Predicting the victor is always a thrilling guessing game, but here are some hot takes for both the Men’s and Women’s Rumbles:

Men’s Rumble:

Frontrunners:

  • CM Punk: His return has been electrifying, and a Rumble win feels like the natural culmination. He has unfinished business with Reigns and Rollins, making both title chases compelling.
  • Cody Rhodes: After falling short last year, the American Nightmare is hungry for redemption. His in-ring skills and crowd support make him a serious contender.
  • Drew McIntyre: The Scottish Psychopath is synonymous with Rumble excellence, having won twice. His power and resilience are undeniable threats.

Dark Horses:

  • Gunther: The new Intercontinental Champion’s dominance could translate into a dominant Rumble performance. His clash with Lesnar would be epic.
  • Sami Zayn: If WWE wants a feel-good moment, Zayn’s underdog journey could culminate in a shocking victory. The crowd would erupt!
  • Surprise Entrants: Legends like The Rock or Batista could add a twist, while NXT call-ups like Bron Breakker could steal the show.

Women’s Rumble:

Frontrunners:

  • Bayley: Her heel turn has been masterful, and she’s due for a major singles victory. Bayley vs. Bianca Belair at WrestleMania would be epic.
  • Bianca Belair: The EST of NXT is a powerhouse and fan favorite. A repeat Rumble win could set her up for a rematch with Ripley or a clash with the Raw champion.
  • Becky Lynch: The Man is always a threat, and her history with both champions makes her a versatile contender.

Dark Horses:

  • Rhea Ripley: The Raw champion could enter to solidify her dominance or even challenge for the SmackDown title, setting up a cross-brand showdown.
  • Liv Morgan: After her heartbreaking Money in the Bank cash-in, a Rumble win could be her chance at redemption.
  • Surprise Entrances: Trish Stratus or Lita could return for one last hurrah, while dominant NXT stars like Mandy Rose or Raquel Gonzalez could make a significant statement.

Remember, these are just predictions, and the beauty of the Rumble lies in its unpredictability. So, sit back, grab your popcorn, and prepare to be surprised!
