WWE Royal Rumble 2023 predictions are the top topic of discussion in the pro wrestling community at the moment. The first premium live event of WWE is all set to take place this Saturday at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
WWE have announced five matches for the show so far. Apart from the two traditional Royal Rumble matches, fans will witness Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens for the Undisputed Universal Championship, Bianca Belair vs. Alexa Bliss for the RAW Women’s Championship and LA Knight vs. Bray Wyatt in a Pitch Black match.
Here are our predictions for all the winners of WWE Royal Rumble 2023 matches.

The rumor mill is abuzz with the rumor that The Rock will return to WWE at Royal Rumble 2023 and win the match to set up a dream clash with Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39. However, like every year, the rumor may prove to be false, and Cody Rhodes may instead end up winning the match this year to battle Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
2. WWE Royal Rumble 2023 predictions – Rhea Ripley to win
The women’s Royal Rumble is a little predictable this year. Rhea Ripley and Becky Lynch seem the two clear favorites to win. Since Becky has had feuds with both Bianca Belair and Charlotte Flair, it makes sense to give Rhea a push this year.
3. Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns will put his Undisputed Universal Championship on the line against Kevin Owens at the Royal Rumble show. It is highly unlikely that Reigns will drop his title to Owens just a few months before WrestleMania 39.
4. Bray Wyatt

The first-ever Pitch Black match will happen at Royal Rumble, where Bray Wyatt will take on LA Knight. It is Wyatt’s first match on a premium live event after his WWE return. It should not be a surprise if he walks away with a win.
5. Bianca Belair
Bianca Belair has had a dominant run as the RAW Women’s Champion. Although Alexa Bliss seems to be getting dangerous day by day, it is highly unlikely that the former RAW Women’s Champion will dethrone Belair at Royal Rumble.
