Special: Who Else Will Enter The Royal Rumble?
The following names will likely be announced to be in the Men’s Royal Rumble Match: Braun Strowman, Keith Lee, Sheamus, Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods, Riddle, Jeff Hardy, Elias, and Ricochet. After Goldberg confronted McIntyre following McIntyre’s win over Keith Lee in the main event of last week’s Raw, it is clear that Goldberg and McIntyre will be busy battling in a WWE Championship match at the PPV and will not be in the Men’s Royal Rumble Match.
The following names will likely be announced to be in the Women’s Royal Rumble Match: Rhea Ripley, Shayna Baszler, Alexa Bliss, Mandy Rose, Dana Brooke, Lacey Evans, Peyton Royce, and Nikki Cross. After Asuka won the Raw Women’s Championship and the Women’s Tag Team Championship, it is clear that she will be busy defending either of those titles at the PPV and will not be in the Women’s Royal Rumble Match.
The two notable picks from Raw above that seem to be the biggest additions to the Men’s and Women’s Rumbles respectively are Braun Strowman and Rhea Ripley. Strowman will return from his storyline suspension to stake his claim for the WWE Championship opportunity he never received from Adam Pearce, whom he maimed before getting written off TV, by joining the Rumble. Meanwhile, Ripley will get called up from NXT to Raw to get her revenge on Charlotte.
Prediction: Braun Strowman & Rhea Ripley
