Thirty male Superstars from Raw and SmackDown LIVE will fight for a title match opportunity when the 2019 Men’s Royal Rumble Match takes place on Sunday, January 27. The winner of the massive melee will go on to challenge for either the Universal Championship or WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35.
It was announced during Raw last night that Kalisto has declared for the Men’s Royal Rumble Match. He was the only Superstar to be added to the match last night.
Kalisto is also challenging for Buddy Murphy for the Cruiserweight Championship at the Royal Rumble. Murphy is defending the title in a Fatal 4-Way Match against Kalisto, Akira Tozawa, and Hideo Itami.
There are now 20 entrants in the Men’s Royal Rumble Match. Here is the updated list.
A tradition dating back to 1988, the Men’s Royal Rumble Match starts with two participants, and WWE Superstars enter the ring at equal intervals. This continues until all 30 Superstars have entered the bout. Elimination occurs when a Superstar is thrown over the top rope, and both of his feet hit the floor. The last Superstar in the ring will be declared the victor.
