WWE Royal Rumble: Five Possible Guys to take the US Open Challenge

Thirty of the best wrestlers fight it out in an elimination match for the ultimate opportunity to challenge the world champion at the Grandest Stage of Them All. This continues until only one man remains, and that man earns a WWE Championship match at WrestleMania. Nakamura eliminating Cena last would be an unforgettable Royal Rumble moment. The victor of the grueling matchup will go on to compete for the WWE Universal or WWE Championship at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans.

In fact, the relatively small number of female performers on the WWE roster compared to their male counterparts nearly assures that there will be some entrants in the Women's Rumble who aren't current superstars.

Such an event might upset fans of Asuka, a highly accomplished and beloved wrestler who has never been beaten in a WWE match. And who could blame them as a Nakamura win may lead to a WrestleMania dream match of epic proportions between "The King of Strong Style" and WWE Champion, "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles.

It is not a secret that my pick to win the Women's Royal Rumble is Nia Jax. Rousey (12-2) lost two straight bouts in 13 months and took a break to extend her entertainment credits, including a stint as team coach in the reboot of "Battle of the Network Stars".

"I think with her main eventing in UFC, she obviously opened the door for us to be taken more serious as superstars", said Flair, daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair.

When the team of Paige and Natalya faced The Bella Twins in a tag-team match on the January 5, 2015 edition of WWE Raw, they had no idea about the revolution that the encounter will start.

Live from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, it's time for the 2018 Royal Rumble! While interesting, this match feels like a way to get to an Owens vs. Zayn match at Wrestlemania, while keeping the title on Styles, who is the best professional wrestler on the planet right now. What do you guys think?

I was a big fan of Kelly Kelly when she actively competed in WWE.

He has played a prominent part in TV storylines, and the seeds have been sown for a feud against the WWE Champion, AJ Styles, but I can't see it being anything else than a non-physical role.

Check back for updates once the match begins. While the blue brand's tag champs, The Usos, will defend against Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin in what will likely be a pretty fun match.

It seems unlikely Philly is the place. The chances of her being in Philadelphia went down Thursday after she told TMZ to shoot "Mile 22' with Mark Wahlberg and won't be back until mid-February". They will compete in a one-versus-two handicap match. After Asuka's victory, I would have her walk up to the champions and as everyone expects her to taunt Bliss, she turns and gestures to Charlotte that she wants her title at Wrestlemania.
