Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar

WWE Royal Rumble will take place tomorrow night from the Amway Center in Orlando, FL. The show marks the beginning of The Road to Wrestlemania 32 as storylines will be in place to begin the march towards WWE’s biggest show of the year.

So far, we’re able to confirm that AJ Styles is scheduled to be at the show. It’s unknown if he’ll actually debut but the original plan going back to the beginning of the month was for him to debut for WWE as a surprise Royal Rumble match entrant. Because of leaks, those plans are subject to change.

As of January 14, 2016, the plan was for the Royal Rumble match to end in a disputed for controversial finish. Under this scenario, it was slated to come down to Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar, going on to do Reigns vs. Lesnar at WWE Fastlane to determine the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. This isn’t confirmed but something discussed earlier in the month.
