The second biggest PPV is almost here because this Sunday WWE will be staging the 2019 Royal Rumble event. This year is interesting mainly because it's not as predictable to guess who the winners are in every match.

The main card will have seven matches plus two matches will be a part of the pre-show. Let's rundown the entire card to predict who might be the winners in each match.

(P) Buddy Murphy (c) vs Akira Tozawa vs Hideo Itami vs Kalisto - Cruiserweight Title: I don't really watch 205 Live so it's hard for me to predict who will win this match.

I'm a fan of Hideo Itami so I hope he wins, although I'm guessing Buddy Murphy will retain his title for the time being.

(P) Rusev (c) vs Shinsuke Nakamura - US Title: Rusev only won the US title a couple of weeks ago so it's unlikely Rusev day will be losing this match.

Shinsuke Nakamura doesn't need the victory since he had the title for the past few months already.

Cesaro and Sheamus (c) vs The Miz and Shane McMahon - Smackdown Tag Team Titles: This is a very odd match that has the unique pairing of The Miz and Shane McMahon.

They have only been a team for a couple of weeks so it might not be wise to put the titles on them this early.

I feel Cesaro and Sheamus will still retain the titles while The Miz and Shane McMahon won't become champions until it's WrestleMania 35.

Ronda Rousey (c) vs Sasha Banks - Raw Women's Title: Ronda Rousey has yet to be pinned or submitted and I feel she's not losing the title until after WrestleMania 35.

Sasha Banks will have a competitive match with Ronda, but she's not going to win the title this weekend. That said, it should still be an entertaining match between the two Raw Superstars.

Daniel Bryan (c) vs AJ Styles - WWE Title: AJ Styles had been champion for over a year and I feel WWE isn't going to make him champion again. Daniel Bryan is winning this match, although I'm guessing he will win by cheating again.

This could be a potential show stealing match as these two never disappoint in their matches.

Asuka (c) vs Becky Lynch - Smackdown Women's Title: Becky Lynch is losing this match as I feel she will go on to be in the Royal Rumble match itself later on in the night.

Much like Sasha Banks vs Ronda Rousey, this match should also be fun to watch. Asuka is winning, although it will be a long and hard victory for her.

Brock Lesnar (c) vs Finn Bálor - Universal Title: This match is easy to predict as Brock Lesnar is going to win this match.

I have a hard time believing Vince McMahon will give the strap to the much smaller Finn Balor. However, I do feel this will be an exciting match as Lesnar seems to wrestle better with smaller opponents.

Men's Royal Rumble match: I have no idea who's winning the men's Royal Rumble match this year, and that's a good thing, The less predictable the match is, the more exciting it will be for me.

A Smackdown person has won the Royal Rumble match two years in a row so I'm thinking a Raw guy is winning this year.

The two men that I feel have the strongest chances of winning are Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman. If either of these two men win, they might go on to face Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 35.

Women's Royal Rumble match: Unlike the Men's Royal Rumble match, the Women's Rumble is kind of predictable. I have a feeling Becky Lynch and/or Charlotte Flair is winning this year.

I'm guessing there will be two winners so Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair will be co-winners. They will go on to face Ronda Rousey in a Triple Threat and this should be the main event of WrestleMania 35.
