1 of 3

WWE Royal Rumble 2024 is still seven months away, and the pro wrestling world is already buzzing about who could possibly win the Rumble and main event WrestleMania. The Royal Rumble is the perfect place for epic returns, jaw-dropping surprises, and most importantly indelible moments that will last forever. The Rock is back. Jade Cargill and Nia Jax made their way to WWE. Kairi Sane will be back in November. There are even newsworthy rumors about CM Punk coming back to WWE after 10 long years ever since he left the WWE at Royal Rumble 2014.

Now that the tickets will go on sale for this event next Friday, October 20, the following will provide very early match card predictions for the most exciting PPV to kickstart the PPV calendar of 2024 and the road to WrestleMania: WWE Royal Rumble 2024.

WWE Royal Rumble 2024 will take place on January 27, 2024, at 8 p.m. E.S.T., live on Peacock. Here are some very early match card predictions.

Men’s Royal Rumble [30-Man Battle Royal]

CM Punk is exactly what WWE needs now. They need a needle mover who will bring something unique to the show, and no one creates more buzz than the Second City Saint himself. That infamous pipebomb 12 years ago was just the beginning, and his AEW career was living proof of how big a draw CM Punk can be, especially after being 3rd in the PWI 500 last year. After 10 long years, CM Punk leaving Royal Rumble 2014 and returning to win the Rumble in 2024 and finally main event Mania for the first time in his career is a beautiful storyline that can’t be passed up.

Prediction: CM Punk

Women’s Royal Rumble [30-Woman Battle Royal]

Unlike CM Punk, who is already established, Jade Cargill is the future of WWE in every sense of the word. She is the next megastar to trailblaze this women’s division and should be pushed to the moon as a dominant force, especially her infamous winning streak in AEW as the TBS Women’s Champion. There are a plethora of riveting feud options for Cargill, and winning the Rumble will give her the choice to battle a top star like Rhea Ripley, Becky Lynch, or even Bianca Belair on the grandest stage of them all, WrestleMania. HHH does not have to wait. Cargill is more than ready.

Prediction: Jade Cargill
