This Sunday marks the 30th Anniversary of The Royal Rumble!

Out of the 30 contestants that will be battling it out for a chance at a Wrestle Mania main event title shot, we have 22 that are confirmed. Leaving us 8 yet to be announced, that will serve as surprise entries this Sunday.


  1.  GoldBerg
  2. Brock Lesnar
  3. Big E
  4. Kofi Kingston
  5. Xavier Woods
  6. Chris Jericho
  7. Braun Strowman

  18. The Big Show
  19. Sami Zayn
  20. Big Cass
  21. Rusev
  22. Mojo Rawley

#23-#30 are still mysteries to us, but I can ALMOST guarantee there will be a good 4-6 jobbers joining in, with the remaining members being huge surprise guests. Will it be Triple H?  Is Seth Rollins going to find a way to be included in this years Rumble? Is Finn Balor back this early from his injury? We will have to just wait and see for ourselves.

The Royal Rumble isn’t the only event taking place in this Pay-Per-View. There will also be 5 Championships on the line:

  • WWE Raw Tag Team Championship during the Kick-Off Show between Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson going against Sheamus and Cesaro
  • WWE Universal Championship where Kevin Owens defends the belt against Roman Reigns
  • WWE Cruiserweight Championship between Rich Swann and Neville
  • WWE Raw Women’s Championship where the new feud continues with Charlotte Flair and Bayley
  • WWE Championship Main Event matchup between the two biggest names in WWE, John Cena vs AJ Styles

If that sounds like a lot, there’s more!  We can’t forget about Nia Jax taking on Sasha Banks which is also a Kick-Off Show Matchup.

Finally, no titles are on the line, but we have the Smackdown women going at it in a 6-way tag match. Becky Lynch, Naomi, Nikki Bella vs. Natalya, Alexa Bliss, and most recently return Mickie James.

It sure is going to be an amazing Pay-Per-View this Sunday that is going to be starting the new year off in the right direction. I would love to hear how you feel about this stacked line-up, and also who do you think will be the surprise entries in the Royal Rumble Match.
