Tropicana Field/ThunderDome in St. Petersburg, Florida on 31st January 2021. This will be the First PPV/Major event of 2021 from WWE. This is where the road to Wrestlemania begins.

So with that being said, let’s get on with the predictions.

We will be following these rules/guidelines for our Predictions: -

  • We will be predicting only the current matches that have been announced so far at the moment in time, with the exception of if one of us thinks that the Money in the Bank will be used/cashed in

  • The matches will be in Random Order as we don't know what order they will be presented to us.

  • If a match gets restarted due to some rule-breaking being found out and etc, then the restarted outcome will be considered the true cannon result and the previous one will be discarded due to the restart.

  • (c) - Refers to the Champion(s) heading into the match.

These are our predictions for WWE Royal Rumble 2021.

The first of the big 4 WWE PPV that we get every year and also the start of the Road to Wrestlemania. As you can see we have mostly gone for the same predictions for the Non-Royal Rumble Matches (with 1 exception of course). However, we have mostly gone for different answers for the Royal Rumble Matches because there is actually no clue, hint, idea, or even what direction they are planning to head towards Wrestlemania for.

This means that for the Royal Rumble Matches it could be anyone going for the victory. It could be someone unexpected, could be someone returning, or someone that you been following for a long time could possibly win it. Who knows who will be victorious but it will be interesting to find out.

We will reveal why we made our predictions the way we have & our thoughts of the event either on a Fallout Episode of The Burning Truth or we could even possibly do a follow-up blog post, but that all depends on time management.

So with that, all said please let us know in the comments section below if you agree or disagree, and what your predictions are for WWE Royal Rumble 2021.
