WWE Royal Rumble 2022: Match Card and Predictions

Universal Title: Roman Reigns (c) vs Seth Rollins
Roman Reigns was forced out of his title defense earlier this month at Day 1 due to COVID. With Reigns healthy, he’ll be matched up against his former Shield stablemate in the form of Seth Rollins. While the matchup is intriguing, there’s almost no chance Reigns drops the title so close to Wrestlemania. 6
PREDICTION: Roman Reigns

WWE Title: Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Bobby Lashley
Coming out the winner at Day 1, Lesnar has had a target on his back which was answered by former champion Bobby Lashley. While Lesnar vs Lashley has been a dream match for some time, the outcome is predictable.
PREDICTION: Brock Lesnar

Rumble matches

Men’s Royal Rumble (Johnny Knoxville, Rey Mysterio, Dominik Mysterio, Angelo Dawkins, Montez Ford, Austin Theory, Sheamus, Damian Priest, AJ Styles, Big E., Happy Corbin, Madcap Moss, Sami Zayn, Kofi Kingston, plus 16 unannounced)
The winner of the Royal Rumble remains an interesting question and debate as it can go various ways. With so many top veterans getting the call in the title matches, expect a younger star to walk out as the Rumble winner. To pinpoint it to just one man, there’s a good chance Austin Theory gets the nod.
PREDICTION: Austin Theory

Women’s Royal Rumble (Charlotte Flair, Nikki Bella, Brie Bella, Michelle McCool, Summer Rae, Kelly Kelly, Lita, Rhea Ripley, Naomi, Nikki ASH, Carmella, Zelina Vega, Shotzi, Tamina, Dana Brooke, Natalya, Aliyah, Shayna Baszler, plus 11 unannounced)
The women’s Royal Rumble match is a mystery due to so many older names from the past filling out the lineup. The name that turned most heads was Impact Wrestling’s Knockouts Champion Mickie James. What better way to make an impact than winning the Royal Rumble.
PREDICTION: Mickie James
