The Royal Rumble promises tremendous excitement as the best superstars from RAW, SmackDown and NXT will go to war against each other. The road to WrestleMania 36 kicks off on Sunday at the Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas as the winners of the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble Matches will earn a title shot ahead of the Show of Shows.
WWE Champion Brock Lesnar will compete in the 30-men over-the-top-rope battle royal and is so confident of his chances that he decided to be the No1 entrant to this bout and face another 29 superstars.
Lesnar’s work, though, won’t be easy as he will also have to face former world champions like Roman Reigns, Dolph Ziggler, SmackDown Tag Team Champion Kofi Kingston, AJ Styles, Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio, RAW Tag Team Champion Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens.
The likes of King Corbin, Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura, Braun Strowman, SmackDown Tag Team Champion Big E, Erick Rowan, Elias, Ricochet, Drew McIntyre, Otis, Tucker, Rusev, Bobby Lashley, Aleister Black, RAW Tag Team Champion Buddy Murphy, Samoa Joe and R-Truth have also been announced.
That leaves five positions open that could be filled by NXT superstars and WWE legends similar to the most recent Royal Rumble events.
