• New Surprising Name Rumored To Win Royal Rumble 2018 & Face The WWE Champion At WrestleMania 34
As we noted before, 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena was originally the favorite to win the Men’s Royal Rumble 2018 match, according to the betting odds.
However, that’s not the case anymore as John Cena will be involved in a match much bigger than both World Title matches on the WrestleMania 34 match card.
With that being said, the new name that is being rumored to win the Men’s Royal Rumble 2018 match is the first ever Universal Champion, Finn Balor.
There are two scenarios being discussed if Balor wins the Royal Rumble:
1. Demand his Title match before WrestleMania 34, at the Elimination Chamber 2018 PPV and face Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship.
2. Switch brands and challenge “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles to a WWE Championship match at WrestleMania 34 with the storyline being Balor defeated Styles at TLC 2017.
We’ll keep you updated regarding this.
