It’s time for the Royal Rumble match.

Thanks to Kane’s announcement from Raw, we know that CM Punk is entering at #1. Thanks to an article on our mother website, FanSided.com, we can confirm the following 19 Superstars to join Punk:

  • Batista
  • Alberto Del Rio
  • Big E Langston
  • The Miz
  • R-Truth
  • Xavier Woods
  • Kofi Kingston
  • Cody Rhodes
  • Goldust
  • Rey Mysterio
  • Fandango
  • Roman Reigns
  • Seth Rollins
  • Dean Ambrose
  • Erick Rowan
  • Luke Harper
  • Damien Sandow
  • Jimmy Uso
  • Jey Uso

That leaves 10 more spots open. One of those spots could be filled by Chris Jericho. Jericho is in Pittsburgh, also the site of the Royal Rumble, and had this to say on Twitter:

There’s also the potential return of Sheamus from injury. Kevin Nash, who hosted an event last night in Pittsburgh. Maybe even Daniel Bryan, who hasn’t been advertised, but could be held as a secret to make the crowd pop.

There’s also the possibility of Sting. Sting, according to rumors, is done with TNA. As of this past week, he was on the verge of signing with WWE. If WWE really wanted to make a splash with Sting, they would enter him at #30 in the Royal Rumble.

Cody Rhodes and Goldust may also be a big story coming out of the Rumble. Cody has eliminated his brother twice, in past Royal Rumbles. Don’t be shocked to see Goldust get revenge on his brother and eliminate him tonight. This would just be more dissension for the Rhodes brothers before they begin their WrestleMania feud.

Unfortunately for Bryan fans who want to see him main event WrestleMania, he won’t seal that fate tonight. Batista will complete his comeback by winning the Rumble match and going to the main event of WrestleMania XXX.

Winner: Batista to advance to the main event of WrestleMania XXX
