Roman Reigns (c) vs. Daniel Bryan [Universal Championship]
Assuming Roman Reigns retains the Universal Championship against Kevin Owens at WWE TLC 2020 and holds onto it all the way to this year’s Royal Rumble event, he will defend the championship against the superstar whom his cousin, Jey Uso, ‘injured’ on SmackDown two weeks ago, Daniel Bryan.
This was clearly a storyline injury to set up a championship match between Bryan and Reigns at a later date. Clearly, these two superstars will have an impeccable feud, but Reigns will inevitably retain the Universal Championship against Bryan, who is merely trying to put the SmackDown stars over as much as possible.
Prediction: Roman Reigns
Drew McIntyre (c) vs. AJ Styles [WWE Championship]
Assuming Drew McIntyre wins back the WWE Championship from Randy Orton and retains the championship against Sheamus at WWE TLC 2020, he will defend the championship against AJ Styles at WWE Royal Rumble 2021. McIntyre has expressed interest in battling AJ Styles in the past. For some reason, they have not had a one-on-one match or substantial feud in the WWE.
Now that Styles has a bodyguard, that could be a sign that he is making his way back into the main event title picture. The Royal Rumble is the PPV for dream championship matches, where the champion inevitably retains in a spectacular match. Expect the same here because McIntyre will retain that championship all the way to Mania after winning it back from Orton.
Prediction: Drew McIntyre
