The Royal Rumble is renowned for its spring of surprises that it can produce and the 2018 men's Royal Rumble had no shortage of those. Batista was an unpopular victor in what should have been Daniel Bryan's win in 2014. WWE has been known to swerve the audience if the outcome is too expected, but with Reigns dropping the Intercontinental Championship to The Miz on Raw, he's is the best bet on the Raw brand to win the Rumble. It's not really Vince McMahon's style to book the Rumble victor to look that strong on the go-home show. To sign up, just head to the "Start Your Free Month" banner on the homepage and click through.
Rumors have heated up for a while about Rousey joining WWE full-time, but she vehemently denied them in an interview with TMZ Thursday. Then Kane gets beat, but that sets up a possible Strowman vs. Kane match at WrestleMania, where the story is that Kane cost Strowman the Universal Title. "And now that I realize I really do have this opportunity, I feel like my 6-year-old self would totally kick my ass if I didn't take it".
If you're new to this whole wrestling caper than you may be wondering exactly what the Royal Rumble is. The Bar in the Raw tag-team championship. Rousey is the victor if she's in the match. Remember LayCool? The only way I see this going the other way and AJ keeping the belt is if Sami and Kevin come up with some diabolical plan that backfires and AJ takes advantage to beat them. It would do a ton of damage to the tag team division of RAW.
Will Braun Strowman get "these hands" on the Universal Title? Benjamin and Gable need character development, but I hear the argument that they could be made by winning the tag titles. Jinder Mahal? An NXT call-up? 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! That's not a comment on the rape allegations. But then It hit me that he actually debuted, and it would be silly that he would come out again. He hasn't appeared since and a new USA champion has been crowned in his absence.

Thompson: Let me ask you this question then. "That's what I hope I can do here since I've been here longer than anybody", he said. He went to Europe to play, and as you know, I'll still say I'll cooperate with any investigation that's made.
A win tonight would confirm that, but if a Smackdown superstar (like Nakamura) wins, Reigns can still get Lesnar by becoming the number one contender for that title over the course of the next few weeks. He has been given a new direction since however by reforming the Balor Club with Gallows and Anderson, and the endorsement they received from Triple H and DX this past Monday could foreshadow a big match at Wrestlemania.
Kalisto, Lince Dorado, Gran Metalik vs. TJP, Jack Gallagher, and Drew Gulak (Kickoff Show): It's hard to imagine this not being created to be a spot-heavy, crowd pleasing win for the babyface trio.
