Match card management
I've been thinking for a while about the management of this year's royal rumble card because there is A LOT of stuff in there and at the same time, some wrestler will appear in multiple matches.
Let's start with the lenght : RR should be about 4 hours long. Every Royal Rumble match will overall (promo, entrances, celebration and ending promo) take about 1 hour and 20 minutes. So the 2 RRm will already take about 2 h and 40 mins. Then we still have the 2 major championship matches, the Cruiserweight, the SD Tag team, the 2 women's championship and the US Championship. At this point, The Tag team match, the Cruiserweight match and the Us championship match will 90% go on the pre-show...at least 2 of these 3 matches.
Now, let's proceed with the matches order. You surely can't put both RR matches one after another because that would be extremely exhausting for the crowd. Just like 2018, they will probably put one in the middle of the show and the other one at the end. However, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch and Fill Balor have all been announced for both a singles match and the respective RR match. This means that, in order to have all them 3 do this, they must put their matches before the respective RR.....man this is such a mess!
I would probably go with this line-up anyway :
SD women's championship match
WWE championship match
Women's Royal Rumble
Universal Championship match
Raw women's championship match
Men' Royal Rumble
So Sasha would first compete in the Rumble match and then the championship match. It sounds stupid I know but she was not a believable RR winner anyway
