The final card for this Sunday’s Royal Rumble match has finally been put in place by WWE, and that includes a list of announced entrants in the battle royal. There are five announced matches, including two title matches, and 19 confirmed entrants in the actual rumble match. That leaves a lot of open slots for some surprise entrants that everyone always looks forward to seeing.
After the event of WWE SmackDown on Thursday evening, WWE was able to officially confirm the final card. A few more superstars were added to the rumble match as there were only 14 in there after Monday Night Raw.
WrestleZone has reported the following matches for Sunday’s Royal Rumble, but as always, the card is subject to change. These matches have been confirmed.
Brock Lesnar holds the WWE World Heavyweight Title and he is not looking to let it go. John Cena has been destroyed by Lesnar time and time again, but adding Seth Rollins to the mix is just a dangerous combination. The winner is set to possibly take on the Royal Rumble match winner at WrestleMania 31.
The Miz and Damien Mizdow want their tag titles back, and that could be just what the crowd wants too. Even though the Usos are supposed to be the good guys, the stunt-double hilarity of Mizdow has won everyone over.
After destroying jobbers for a few weeks, The Ascension finally get a test against a real team and it’s one of the best ever from the WWE attitude era. The New Age Outlaws didn’t take kindly to the disrespect of The Ascenesion and plan on beating some into them.
Somehow, the Bella twins are back on good terms and WWE plans on having two of their strongest divas challenge them. Paige and Natalya have been working well as a team lately, and could cause problems for the sisters.
On the kickoff show, the new team of Tyson Kidd and Cesaro will be joined by Adam Rose to face off with A New Day. The team of Kidd and Cesaro has become truly impressive and a heel Adam Rose could make for a lethal combination.
Nineteen names have officially been confirmed for the final card and the Royal Rumble match, but that means there are still 11 open spots. Those spots could be filled by names already on the roster, or there could be old names, new names, and a lot of surprises.
Confirmed Royal Rumble entrants are:
- Dolph Ziggler
- Roman Reigns
- Daniel Bryan
- Bad News Barrett
- Bray Wyatt
- Dean Ambrose
- Big Show
- The Miz
- Damien Mizdow
- Justin Gabriel
This Sunday, the superstars of the WWE will all be there for the Royal Rumble and look to win one of the biggest matches of the year. The winner will go on to main event the granddaddy of them all and be on a huge stage in just two shorts months at WrestleMania 31.
