Although the pair of the men’s and women’s Royal Rumble matches are guaranteed to be part of the show, Royal Rumble events are more than just the titular matches. WWE usually puts on some major World Championship matches to fill out the rest of the card and 2023 is no different.

Roman Reigns will battle Kevin Owens for the third time in Rumble history but this time Reigns will have longtime friend/rival Sami Zayn in his corner. Not only that but WWE Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair will take on the eternally popular Alexa Bliss as Bliss continues her return to the dark side. Speaking of darkness, L.

Who Is Going To Win At The 2023 WWE Royal Rumble Event?

  • Who Will Be In The WWE 2023 Royal Rumble?

    Aside from a few exceptions, WWE’s Royal Rumble match historically has featured 30 wrestlers entering in at regular intervals. Men and women are eliminated by being thrown over the top rope and both feet hitting the floor. After the last entrant is called, the last person standing in the ring wins the match and is guaranteed a World Championship match at WrestleMania… most of the time anyway.

    While it is very rare for all the entrants of a Royal Rumble match to be announced beforehand, WWE usually does announce some of the entrants for the match prior to the event and that is the case for the 2023 Rumble. Please check out the article below for a full list of Rumble entrants announced by WWE.

Who Do We Predict Will Win The 2023 Men’s Royal Rumble?

The Men’s Royal Rumble has a couple of rumored names to win the event. Chief among them is WWE Legend and Hollywood mega-star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Johnson has been long rumored to face WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns in a match at WrestleMania 39 but it is all a matter of if The Rock’s schedule can accommodate a match at WrestleMania.

The other notable man rumored to win the Rumble is none other than Cody Rhodes. After returning to the WWE at WrestleMania 38, Rhodes went on an absolute tear with an already legendary trilogy of matches with Seth Rollins culminating in an all-time great performance inside WWE’s Hell In A Cell. It’s worth noting that Rhodes wrestled the match with torn pectoral muscle which resulted in one of the most shocking visuals in WWE history.

One cannot discount the possibility of Sami Zayn or Seth Rollins, both of whom have been on tremendous hot streaks walking out of Texas the winner of the Royal Rumble. We have a full list of names who should and shouldn’t win the match listed below.

Who Will Win The 2023 Women’s Royal Rumble?

While the Men’s Royal Rumble has a handful of likely names to win the match, the Women’s match is much more open to speculation as to who would win. Much like Roman Reigns’ dominant title reign, Bianca Belair has been utterly dominant since securing the Raw Women’s Championship back at WrestleMania 38 from Becky Lynch. Unlike for the men’s roster though there are two World Championships for women on WWE’s main roster which means that whoever wins the match has two options to pick from. Charlotte Flair has recently won the Smackdown belt from Ronda Rousey in a shocking return so the winner of the match may choose to face the Queen rather than the EST.

With or without a belt, Becky Lynch is always a surefire bet to win a big women’s match on a PPV. Lynch has a ton of history with both Belair and Flair and a rematch  with either of them at WrestleMania would be huge. Just as with Becky Lynch, Ronda Rousey is also a likely contender to win the Rumble which if she did, would make her the first woman in WWE history to win back-to-back Rumbles. A full breakdown on who should and shouldn’t win the women’s match can be found below.

How Was The WWE Royal Rumble Created?

Although some casual fans might assume that WWE’s founder Vince McMahon is responsible for the creation of WWE’s best gimmick match ever, this is actually far from the case. The story behind the history of the match is much more interesting than one might think as it involves an absolutely beloved legend of the wrestling business, a doubtful and negative owner and a certain network who is rumored to be interested in purchasing all of WWE.
