WWE Royal Rumble rumors are running rampant! On the latest episode of the “Nitty Gritty Dirt Show” on RussosBrand.com, host Billi Bhatti and former WWE writer Vince Russo, discussed how while he believes Daniel Bryan will still be the planned opponent for Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 37, and that Bryan or returning former WWE Champion Edge are the expected winners, though obviously plans can change as all of us on the dirt sheets always say once we’re wrong! Wrestling-Edge transcribed Bhatti’s comments below.
Bhatti: Yeah, I still haven’t heard anything different and believe that it will be [Daniel] Bryan and Roman [Reigns] at WrestleMania. Obviously, Edge coming in this week – my son is pretty smart and he’s predicting Edge and Bianca Belair to win their respective Royal Rumble’s this weekend. I’m still playing it a little bit safer and taking Bryan off the information that I know that he will be facing Roman at WrestleMania.
Bhatti: So I’ll admit if I’m wrong about that and he doesn’t win the Royal Rumble this Sunday – I think you’re still see the match and it’s gonna go down the Elimination Chamber path. That could be a factor of why you see Edge win instead because I don’t know with Edge’s dates and his injuries if they want to put him in the Rumble and then put him in the Elimination Chamber as well.
The Ultimate Opportunist declared his entry into the 2021 edition of the Royal Rumble during this past week’s Monday Night RAW. The Former WWE Champion vowed to take back the championship that he ‘never lost’ in a pre-recorded promo by stating the following:
“One year ago. Feels like a decade doesn’t it? Last years story was once in a lifetime. No sense trying to recreate that. Impossible. I don’t have you there. This year my journey is different. I’m not just happy to be back. I want back what I never lost and it starts this Sunday.”
