  • They all just announced they were entering themselves in it, right? If that’s the case, there’s 21 announced, As I’m entering myself into the Royal Rumble Match.


  • Mick

    I hope there are no gimmick entries last year was a joke with Booker,Cole,Lawler,Duggan entering.

    • IHateSantino

      Well… As the 25th anniversary of the Royal Rumble, I felt last year having Hackshaw in was pretty cool. Like 25 years ago he won so he wanted to win again.
      Cole and Lawler entering made me sad that more deserving people didnt get to participate

  • Michael

    I wonder if they will have any filler matches, the u.s title match could’ve been on the show. I know they’re going to add the divas some way shape or form. I wouldn’t mind seeing a few surprises like Christian, Morrison, Shelton Benjamin, or a few other past wrestlers.

    • I doubt it. Although Kaitlyn versus Tamina Snuka for the Divas Championship had been rumored to take place at the Royal Rumble, I expect the match to end up just like Brodus Clay versus Damien Sandow at last year’s SummerSlam: being bumped to RAW.
