It’s time for the latest round of SLTD Radio PPV Predictions! This week’s predictions concern the first WWE PPV of 2013, the Royal Rumble, which comes to us live in the UK at 1am on Monday morning courtesy of Sky Box Office. WWE TV hasn’t been especially great since their last PPV (TLC), but this is the Road to WrestleMania, so hopefully things pick up from here on in!
Talking of TLC, let’s take a look at how the team did with their predictions from TLC. Out of the 7 matches that were announced on WWE.com before the event took place, the results looked like this:
Greg – 6
George – 5
Brad – 4
That means that, in terms of the overall SLTD Radio WWE PPV Predictions League, Greg and George are tied for 1st place with 25 points from 34 matches, while Brad is propping up the table with 16 points from 28 matches, but he’s done 1 less PPV than Greg and George.
Before we see what the guys had to say about the matches scheduled for Sunday’s Royal Rumble, they’ve asked me to clear something up. You’ll have noticed that they didn’t have predictions for the Samoa Joe vs Mr Anderson match from TNA Genesis the other week. That’s because that match was added to the card after the guys had done their predictions. They write their predictions in advance because, to be quite honest, they’re busy guys! What we’re trying to say is that if a match is added to any PPV card after the predictions post has gone live, it won’t be included as part of our predictions. Hopefully that clears things up.
Another quick note here. As a one-off for this PPV only, if anybody correctly picks the winner of the 2013 Royal Rumble match, they’ll earn 2 points instead of 1! This is only going to happen for Royal Rumble matches, so that’s just an extra wee incentive to get you involved!
Right then, let’s get down to business and see what Brad, George and Greg had to say about Sunday’s Royal Rumble! Their predictions will be in bold. As always, feel free to make your own selections at the end of each preview, and submit your details below!
As usual, it’s time for YOU to get involved!

Just to clear things up, the guys have gone for Antonio Cesaro, Rhodes Scholars, Alberto del Rio, CM Punk and John Cena as their overall winners at WWE Royal Rumble
