Asuka (c) vs. Shayna Baszler vs. Nia Jax [Raw Women’s Championship]

Assuming Asuka retains the Raw Women’s Championship all the way to WWE Royal Rumble 2021, she will battle the current Women’s Tag Team Champions, Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax, in a triple threat match, which has already been teased on Raw this past week. Baszler and Jax would be her most formidable challengers, especially since they have been built as the two most indomitable forces in the Raw Women’s Division.

This match would play out in a similar manner to John Cena (c) vs. Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels and even Undertaker (c) vs. Chris Jericho vs. Big Show at WWE Survivor Series 2009. Thanks to dissension between tag partners, Triple H and Shawn Michaels, John Cena retained the WWE Championship. Thanks to dissension between tag partners, Chris Jericho and Big Show, Undertaker retained the World Heavyweight Championship.

The same will happen here, in which Asuka will retain the Raw Women’s Championship thanks to dissension between Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax.

Prediction: Asuka

Sasha Banks (c) vs. Bianca Belair [SmackDown Women’s Championship]

Assuming Sasha Banks retains the SmackDown Women’s Championship against Carmella at WWE TLC 2020 and holds onto it all the way to this year’s Royal Rumble event, she will battle Bianca Belair, who has vehemently expressed her interest in battling Banks in the near future. Indeed, this is definitely a dream match in the making that is worthy of the WrestleMania stage.

However, this would be Belair’s first-ever championship match on the main roster, and it is always more ideal to strike while the iron is hot with breakout stars. Instead of waiting four more months until Mania, Royal Rumble would be fitting for her first championship match. Regardless of the hype, Banks will retain.

There’s no way she’s losing her championship anytime son after dethroning the longest-reigning SmackDown Women’s Champion in history. Expect Banks to hold onto that championship for at least a year, but there’s no doubt that Belair will receive the ‘rub here with a strong showing on a proving ground that will showcase her capability of leading the women’s division in the future.

Prediction: Sasha Banks
