This year’s Royal Rumble looks like one of the most wide open in years. There’s no clear favourite going into it, despite the bookies having their picks. Last year’s Rumble was ruined slightly by the odds being heavily in the favour of those who did end up winning, so we’ll just have to hope to be pleasantly surprised this year.
Royal Rumble 2019 not only boasts the men and women’s respective Royal Rumbles, but it also has a match card that is positively stacked with championship matches. Interestingly, last year’s Rumble winner, Shinsuke Nakamura, can only find himself on the Kickoff show this time out.
