Royal Rumble 2019 Predictions

Pay-Per-View weekend is upon us! Man, the term Pay-Per-View is a stupid one in this modern day age of the WWE network and streaming services. Regardless, this is a fun time for hardcore fans and casual fans alike to come together and pit their predictions against each other. 

We encourage anyone reading this to submit their own predictions, either in the comments section or by emailing podcast@wackmatters.com and we will announce a winner of the newly initiated WackMatters Wrestling Matters Prediction Championship! The belt may be virtual, but the honor and glory are real and we will announce you as the winner once the PPV has ended!

Here are the WackMatters staff predictions for Royal Rumble 2019!
