Re: 2018 WWE Royal Rumble Roundtable

So, a couple of notes on the roundtables this year. As opposed to previous years, instead of a series of bonus questions at the end of the roundtable I put a question about the result of each match in each spot to be filled out for a potential point. Score means how many falls in the 2/3 falls match: 2-1 or 2-0. Decision is asking will it be pinfall/submission/DQ/Countout? Who gets pinned is simple enough, and the Rumble Q's are usually used every year. Hope everyone joins in this year and we have a fun time with these!

ROYAL RUMBLE 2018

SmackDown Tag Championships 2 out of 3 Falls Match:
The Usos ( c ) vs American Beta aka World’s Second Greatest Tag Team aka Benjamin & Gable

Winners: Benjamin & Gable
Score: 2-1
Comments: This feud between Usos and American Beta has been pretty good, but it needs more life. A title change is necessary if for nothing other than prove a team besides Usos and New Day are in fact capable of winning and holding these belts. The feud might go on, even to Mania, but it's time for new blood to hold these belts.

RAW Tag Championships:
Rollins & Jordan ( c ) vs The Barre aka Cesaro & Sheamus

Winners: Rollins & Jordan
Decision: Jordan pins Cesaro
Comments: Rollins and Jordan as a team is an interesting combination, it's helped Jason Jordan get some direction and get some footing back, while Rollins could be doing better things on his own, but this isn't a bad space holder after Dean Ambrose went out with an injury. However, this angle only works if Rollins & Jordan keep the belts for a while longer.

Universal Championship Triple Threat:
Brock Lesnar ( c ) vs Braun Strowman vs Kane

Winner: Brock Lesnar
Who gets pinned: Kane
Comments: The best result of this match is actually for Braun Strowman to win, but I just don't see it happening and Kane is just in this match to be the jobber to protect Strowman, or less likely Lesnar, and take the fall. At this point, Lesnar advancing to Mania as the champion seems like a foregone conclusion.

WWE Championship 2-on-1 Handicap Match
A.J. Styles ( c ) vs Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn

Winner: A.J. Styles
Who gets pinned: Sami Zayn
Comments: Personally, I'd rather see Zayn pin Styles and get the belt, forcing a rift between him and Owens and potentially leading to a fantastic triple threat feud and match between all three men at Mania after KO gets jealous. That being said, I don't think it will happen. Styles wins, and Zayn is definitely the second class citizen of his partnership with Kevin Owens.

First Ever Women’s Royal Rumble
Winner: Asuka
Final Four: Asuka, Ronda Rousey, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch
Iron Man: Natalya
Most Eliminations: Nia Jax
Comments: This match is either going to be great or an incohesive mess I believe there's very little room for a middle ground. The six women I mentioned above I believe will get the vast majority of the attention and I think the match will come down to Rousey or Asuka winning it and both will likely be in the ring at the end. Natalya is the best glue worker the division has so it's natural for her to be in most of the match and Nia will get a chance to look dominant early.

2017 Royal Rumble Match
Winner: Roman Reigns
Final Four: Reigns, Shinsuke Nakamura, Randy Orton, John Cena
Iron Man: Finn Balor
Most Eliminations: Rusev
Comments: Reigns is going to win, after that I'm not confident in predicting anything in this match.

Great score, Brett. Nicely done.

Tim also continues to impress for someone who doesn't have a clue what's going on. :P

The new format looks good, John. Thanks for taking over.
