Rumored Royal Rumble Winner And How It Might Affect WrestleMania Plans


We're going to know a lot about WrestleMania once the Royal Rumble rolls around, but right now, a bunch of possibilities exist.

While a match between John Cena and The Undertaker has been heavily rumored, it's not set in stone, as Vince McMahon is yet to sign off on the bout. Apparently Roman Reigns is also being considered for a bout with 'Taker, as Vince feels a match between 'Taker and Cena does not build for the future. The fact that it could be 'Taker's final match is also weighing in on the decision.

If John Cena wins the WWE Championship from AJ Styles or Roman Reigns wins the Universal Title from Kevin Owens, it seems that 'Taker would be in line for a title shot. This has caused rumors that 'Taker is the current favorite to win the Royal Rumble match, according to The Wrestling Observer.

Braun Strowman is also said to be a favorite to win the Rumble and could be a no.1 contender for Roman Reigns' Universal Championship, if in fact he defeats Owens.

Meanwhile, Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho is said to be match being discussed for WrestleMania 33. A multi-woman match for the RAW Women's Championship is also being discussed.

As reported earlier today, three matches are locked in for WrestleMania.

-Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg

-Triple H vs. Seth Rollins

-Big Show vs. Shaquille O’Neal
