Many so-called experts are tipping Roman Reigns, the current betting favourite, as the winner of the Royal Rumble. However, this will NOT be the case.
Although Reigns is 100% locked in to face Lesnar at WrestleMania 34, making him an obvious choice as the Royal Rumble winner for most, the current plan is to wait until the Elimination Chamber to crown Reigns as the No.1 contender. The Elimination Chamber is set to be used as a No.1 contender’s match for the WrestleMania 34 Universal Championship match this year, with Brock Lesnar NOT working the PPV.
Yesterday, we revealed that the Royal Rumble winner would be either, John Cena or Nakamura, with our sources leaning towards Nakamura.
