Who else is excited about the 2021 Royal Rumble? Only a couple of weeks away now, the event takes place on January 31st, and will officially launch the Road to WrestleMania!
There’s nothing the WWE Universe loves to do more than speculate when it comes to this event. While there are six superstars (Nia Jax, Charlotte Flair, Bianca Blair, Bayley, Mandy Rose, and Dana Brooke) that have already thrown their hat into the ring for the match, it’s hard not to wonder who the other 24 competitors will be.
Time to get down to it, with the below predictions.
I’m going to start big and speculate on a “surprise” entrant. Might as well go big or go home, right? Ronda Rousey has been out of WWE competition for a very long while now, and the WWE could not only use her star power for this year’s WrestleMania, but she’d be a nice addition to either SmackDown or Monday Night RAW (although, I’m leaning towards RAW since SD has been on a nice roll with storylines and viewership). If she were to enter the 2021 Women’s Royal Rumble, she could very well take the match and move on to WM 37.
Who wouldn’t like to see Ronda and Shayna in the same ring, on the same night, either as friends or foes? They’d obviously start as teammates, trying to eliminate the other competitors, one-by-one, until they had to turn on each other. Regardless, Baszler is a main roster competitor, so it’s not far-fetched to think that she’ll be in this year’s Royal Rumble. She may even turn on her current “tag-team” partner, Nia Jax, during the match.
Marina Sharif and Jessamyn Duke
Adding these two ladies in the same entry, because it would be cool to see Ronda, Shayna, Marina, and Jessamyn in the same ring, at the same time. The WWE Universe is fascinated by the very idea that the Four Horsewomen of the UFC could come together. There have been rumors of an FHW feud between them, and the ladies of the WWE (Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, and Bayley) for years now. Seeing them together would be a “goosebumps” moment for fans.
