Seth Rollins, Brock Lesnar, The Fiend

Royal Rumble is only a few days away and we don’t yet know who is going to win this year’s 30 Man Battle Royal Match. The Superstar who wins this over-the-top-rope Battle Royal gets an opportunity to challenge for either the WWE Championship or the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 36. Last year, Seth Rollins won the Royal Rumble and successfully challenged Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 35.

This year, the excitement among fans regarding the Royal Rumble far surpasses previous years. The ongoing storylines on SmackDown and RAW have carried fan interest so far, and WWE will want to continue that trend at the Royal Rumble. However, the winner of the Battle Royal match can change everything, so the company must be careful.
