WWE began a program between The Miz and Dean Ambrose on this week’s episode of Smackdown Live, which will likely result in a match between the two for the Intercontinental Championship at next month’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view. We broke the news about this weeks ago on WNW Premium. There was some concern the title was beneath Ambrose but obviously Vince felt it was safe because they’re going with it.
John Cena will be involved in a program at Royal Rumble, it remains to be seen if they’ll pick up on his program with WWE Champion AJ Styles or if Styles will get someone else, such as the rumored program with Undertaker.
The following is confirmed for Royal Rumble:
WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens vs. Roman Reigns with Chris Jericho suspended in the crash cage
30-man Royal Rumble match featuring Goldberg and Brock Lesnar
WWE Royal Rumble will take place on Sunday, January 29, 2017 from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. We’ll have complete live coverage here at WrestlingNewsWorld.com.
