Rumored Royal Rumble Favorite + Celebrity at WrestleMania + Possible Saudi Match
Who is the rumored Royal Rumble favorite? There's one emerging on the women's side of things. We have a confirmed celebrity for WM36, too.
Rumored Royal Rumble Favorite For Women’s Match
With the Royal Rumble just days away, now is a perfect time for rumors of possible winners to emerge. And we have a big one now, for the possible winner of the women’s match.
Plenty of fans seem to concur:
Here’s my Royal Rumble Match thoughts and picks.
Women’s Rumble Winner options are SLIM. That division needs an overhaul because 75% of them don’t matter. Nonetheless, Shayna Baszler winning, moving to RAW, and facing Becky at Mania is the best option.

All I know Shayna Baszler, Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks be the last 4 women in the women’s Royal Rumble match.

The two time former NXT Women’s Champion has not been keeping a low profile since she dropped the belt last month. It seems likely WWE is keeping her off of TV and giving her a break ahead of her main roster arrival.
Based on the rumblings, it seems more and more likely that her debut will happen Sunday, and could be a big one.
Considering how the Survivor Series triple threat match went in November, it is entirely possible that the Queen of Spades looks to win the Rumble and earn a shot at RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch. She clearly has some unfinished business between herself and The Man.
Should Baszler and Lynch tangle for the title, it would be another battle between WWE’s Four Horsewomen and those from MMA. Fans have long coveted an eight woman Horsewomen clash. Could 2020 be the year we finally get it?
WrestleMania 36 May Have It’s First Confirmed Celebrity
Gabriel Iglesias may have something to do in Tampa this year. The comedian is on a tour, and has announced that he is going to be in Tampa over WrestleMania weekend.
Report: Gabriel Iglesias confirms he will be at WrestleMania 36, for some reason.

The comedian, nicknamed Fluffy, is no stranger to WWE or WrestleMania. He had previously served as a social media ambassador for WrestleMania. Most recently, Iglesias was on Steve Austin’s USA Network show late in 2019.
It will be interesting to see if he’s in any form of match activity, like say the SNL guys last year. Or (and this would be preferred), maybe they will have him show up, wave, smile and call it a day.
Possible Saudi Arabia Super Showdown Match Revealed?
We are still likely a week or two away from any hype for the next Saudi Arabia show, we do know the company heads back in February.
According to some posts on social media, the recent interactions between Kane and The Fiend will culminate in a match on that show.
However, this would not be just any match.
Local ads in Saudi Arabia are advertising that The Fiend will be defending his Universal Title against Kane in an Inferno Match at Super ShowDown! pic.twitter.com/VIdNJwi4i2
