WWE Royal Rumble 2017 Match: 5 Ways to Make the Main Event Interesting

2 of 6

5. Include Championship Match Losers to Enter

It might be a tough task to ask of any WWE superstar to work two matches in one night. It’s something that has commonly been booked in WWE and other major television promotions. So it’s not something that would be viewed as a surprise. But it would help provide a boost in the number main event caliber wrestlers in the Royal Rumble match.

With the winners in both matches for the WWE Championship and the WWE Universal Championship, it’s hard to predict who will retain. If Roman Reigns is unsuccessful in defeating Kevin Owens, he could billed as a favorite to have another impressive run in the Royal Rumble. However, having Owens enter the match after losing his championship might make the Prizefighter a little more vicious in the ring.

The same could go for the two SmackDown superstars facing off for the WWE Championship. John Cena would probably be extremely motivated to do well in the Royal Rumble if he came up short of tying Ric Flair’s record. And for AJ Styles, competing in the Royal Rumble match would feel like completing his first year in WWE in a full circle.

Either way the two championship matches go, the main event would be a little more interesting with the championship match losers to be entered.
