There are more names announced for the WWE Royal Rumble match at the Royal Rumble PPV on Sunday, January 31. Following last night’s edition of Smackdown, we also learned that Sasha Banks will defend the Smackdown Women’s Title against Carmella one more time.
I should point out that even though Big E is on the graphic up above, he is not listed on WWE.com’s list of Royal Rumble participants as of right now. That doesn’t mean Big E is out of match. I’m just saying that everybody else is listed except him. I’m sure WWE.com is updating tha list all the time.
That means there are three title matches on the show in addition to the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble matches.
Here’s what the card looks like eight days before the Royal Rumble takes place.
30-Men Royal Rumble Match – Announced entrants are: Jeff Hardy, Jey Uso, Cesaro, The Miz, Otis, Bobby Lashley, Randy Orton, AJ Styles, Daniel Bryan, Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler, Big E, Shinsuke Nakamura and more.
30-Women Royal Rumble Match – Announced entrants are: Shayna Baszler, Alexa Bliss, Peyton Royce, Bianca Belair, Bayley, WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Charlotte Flair, Nia Jax, Mandy Rose, Dana Brooke, Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan, Tamina and more.
