McMahon is chief brand officer of WWE as well as becoming the RAW commissioner in 2016.
Normally the bookmakers have quite a good handle on who will and who won’t win at the WWE events. Asuka already defeated Alexa Bliss in a non-title match so they can still get to that match before or at WrestleMania.
Regardless of who walks away with the win, we’re excited to be able to watch the record book fight. However, Triple H told the media this week that the two sides have yet to reach a deal, and she denied that we’ll see her tonight, so if she’s coming to Philly, everyone involved is playing it extremely close to the vest. In the editions of SmackDown LIVE, respectively, thanks in the massive part because of the interference in both bouts, The Phenomenal One took far-reaching action, and, in a moment of frustration, which is challenged his foes to a 2-on-1 Handicap Match!
The first Royal Rumble was held in 1988 in Hamilton, Ontario, but all previous 30 incarnations have all been men’s matches.
It is not a secret that my pick to win the Women’s Royal Rumble is Nia Jax.
While many might think it’s a leak that Vince McMahon ought to fix, there have been plenty of times where the WWE has swerved the bookmakers last minute, too. The WWE Royal Rumble, in which 30 wrestlers enter but only one leaves, is doubling up this year with the introduction of the Women’s Royal Rumble.
NXT Champion Andrade Cien Almas was the first surprise entry of the night, while Sami Zayn replaced Tye Dillinger after attacking backstage alongside Kevin Owens. Now I’m aware that he showed up in 2015 to help Roman win the ruble, but I can’t explain this one logically.
Undertaker, 52, lost an emotional match to Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 33 past year and hinted at retirement when he left his signature black robe, hat and gloves in the middle of the ring before saluting the crowd in what looked to be his farewell. Rusev, Balor and Heath Slater were taken out by Corbin, who made a huge impression despite his brief screen time. Picking up the win and heading to WrestleMania to face his NJPW adversary AJ Styles would do just that. The pre-show begins at 5:00 p.m. ET with the main card starting at 7:00 p.m. ET. Few people got applauses as big as Bryan got on the 25th anniversary episode of “Monday Night Raw”.
Bobby Roode retains the U.S. Championship? Or will Ronda Rousey make the jump from MMA and debut in the women’s Royal Rumble? One of those female Superstars taking part is Bayley.
