The Royal Rumble is my favorite WWE Premium Live Event. 30 people (one men's and one women's event) are allowed to get a match at WrestleMania for a world title. All you have to do is be the last person standing. However, you have to avoid being thrown over the top rope and having both feet touch the ground. You also have to hope someone doesn’t take you out before you enter the ring. That happens more times than you think.

Below are the matches, who's competing, and predictions on who will win. As always, the card is subject to change due to the KayFabe storylines, injuries, and more.

WWE Royal Rumble 2024 start time

WWE Royal Rumble 2024 kicks off at 8:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, January 27, 2024. If you’re watching on the West Coast, it will begin at 5:00 p.m. PT.

If you’re watching in the UK, the event will begin at 1:00 a.m. BST.

WWE United States Championship

Logan Paul (Champion) vs. Kevin Owens

Winner: Logan Paul

Logan Paul will win this match. Kevin Owens losing doesn’t hurt his legacy. If anything, it helps. He’s going to make his opponent look great. This will lead to Paul's eventual world title run.

Logan Paul is being built as a future world champion. Hate it or love it, but it’s true. He’s better than anyone expected him to be and has enough heat to be a phenomenal heel world champ. Even better than that, he continues to get better. This will begin his momentum to becoming the Monday Night Raw World Champion.

Undisputed WWE Universal Championship Fatal Four-Way

Roman Reigns (Champion) vs. Randy Orton vs. LA Knight vs. AJ Styles

Winner: Roman Reigns

There’s nobody in the world that thinks Roman Reigns is going to lose this match. Beyond the fact that he’s been untouchable for over two years, he has to main-event WrestleMania. He could do it without the title, but the money is him fighting Cody Rhodes or The Rock for the title.

The Royal Rumble Matches

The Royal Rumble is also completely unpredictable. You never know who’s going to show up. Sometimes actors and pop stars make an appearance. There’s also a guarantee that a former WWE star will join as well. With random factors like these, it’s difficult to decide who will win the Royal Rumble. Nevertheless, let's give it a shot.

Confirmed for the Men's Royal Rumble

  • Cody Rhodes
  • CM Punk
  • Shinsuke Nakamura
  • Bobby Lashley
  • Drew McIntyre
  • Gunther
  • Chad Gable
  • Otis Akira
  • Tozawa
  • Kofi Kingston
  • Damian Priest

Possible surprises: Hulk Hogan, John Cena, The Rock, Brock Lesnar, Kane,

Most eliminations: Drew McIntyre

Winner: The Rock

The Rock challenging Roman Reigns was the start of this feud. The story may be about Cody defeating Roman at WrestleMania, but it’s not time for him to lose his title. Especially with Hogan’s streak around the corner.

All Roman has to do is win at WrestleMania. It makes sense for him to defeat The Rock instead of Cody Rhodes. Plus, it looks like CM Punk is on a collision course with Cody and Seth Rollins. That could mean a triple threat at WrestleMania 40.

Confirmed for the Women's Royal Rumble

  • Bayley
  • Nia Jax
  • Becky Lynch
  • Bianca Belair
  • Maxxine Dupri
  • Ivy Nile

Possible surprises: Trish Stratus, Lita, Naomi

Most eliminations: Nia Jax

Winner: Bayley

The one thing Bayley hasn’t done in the WWE is win the Royal Rumble match. With Damage CTRL ending, it would make sense for her to challenge Io Sky for her title. It’s the perfect way for her to end this storyline. Even if she loses (which she won’t) it remains a fitting conclusion. Hopefully, this doesn’t turn into her reverting to the hugging Bayley.
