Smackdown Brand Superstar Still Favored for Royal Rumble Match
November 28, 2020
— The favorites for the Royal Rumble men’s match still appears to be someone from the Smackdown brand, since it is believed that Roman Reigns will instead earn his title shot at the Elimination Chamber PPV.
— The likely names include Shinsuke Nakamura and Randy Orton, or perhaps Baron Corbin or even Rusev as a long shot. The other possibility is that an outsider who makes a surprise entrant in the Rumble ends up winning.
