Royal Rumble 2013 will take place Sunday from the US Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona. We'll have exclusive live play-by-play coverage here at

  • Robbie

    Alex Riley was in there, bless him

  • I just hope we have some cool surprises like…Billy Gunn, X Pac..Undertaker, Lesnar all would make me happy

  • Curt Hawkins was there. Hard to recognize him with the new do.

  • Rich

    Also had some more I’m pretty certain I saw:

    Yoshi Tatsu
    Justin Gabriel

  • JakShowtime

    According to twitter, and his Trending as a result, Alex Riley was in there. Albeit apparently briefly.

  • Wilo

    i think i saw the usos

  • Robbie

    Tensai was also in there

  • Tay Bos

    I highly doubt that everybody in the brawl tonight will be in the real thing. That would mean 28 of the 30 spots would be filled, plus one more if you say the loser of the Del Rio/Big Show match will be in it. That leaves one surprise spot, and I’ve already heard that the New Age Outlaws are basically confirmed for the match, so obviously that doesn’t add up. I could see Yoshi, JTG, McGillicutty, Riley, and/or Primo all getting cut from the match, possibly more. Usually there are about 3 to 5 surprises so I think some of those low card guys getting cut makes perfect sense.

  • David F.

    I hope MVP, Christian, Mark Henry, and Shelton Benjamin are in the rumble

  • Christian and Mark Henry will surprise return of the WWE……………. 🙂 🙂

  • I think I saw Epcio, but it could of been Primo, but I don’t see why one would be in and not the other

  • H.M.

    Undertaker, Christian, Mark Henry, Lesnar, or Stone Cold(highly unlikely I know) would all be pleasant surprises.

  • H.M.

    Err, what about the Shield?

  • Darrel

    Jimmy and Jey Usos were involved in the brawl! I saw them in one of the photos at WWE’s website.

  • Darrel

    Epico was there as well buddy!

  • Mike McCarthy

    The only people that were officially added were the ones that got on the mic, everyone else in their was just there as part of the segment, there were more than 30 people in the ring

    Richard you might want to add Rey Mysterio as a surprise entrants
