Ric Flair knows a thing or two about the Royal Rumble match, as he won the 1992 Royal Rumble and also the WWE Championship in the process.
Sunday night there will be two Royal Rumble winners as both the men and women of WWE are set to compete for a title shot at WrestleMania, and Ric Flair recently told Sky Sports that he thinks Asuka and Roman Reigns will end up winning.
“I would say Asuka,” Flair said. “She’s colorful, the fans love her and she’s like the women’s version of [Great] Muta, with the paint and everything, and she’s very talented. All of the kids from Japan that come over are technically and mechanically very strong. … When you keep in mind a lot of the focus is pointing towards ‘Mania, then I think Roman Reigns has got a good chance. I love Roman, he’s a great character and a great guy. He deserves it.”
Dana Brooke will be one of the competitors in the first ever women’s Royal Rumble, but the company left her off the promotional photo for the match.
A fan brought this to WWE’s attention, and according to Brooke the company just loves to forget about her.
