WWE Officially Announces Roman Reigns For Royal Rumble Match

Roman Reigns

It took until the Friday before the pay-per-view, but Roman Reigns has finally been announced for Sunday’s 30-Man Over-The-Top Royal Rumble Match.

Reigns lost the Intercontinental Championship to The Miz on Monday’s episode of Raw. Reigns challenging Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship has long been expected to be the main event of WrestleMania, and Dave Meltzer reported that those plans haven’t changed as of this past week, but that could still be set up if Reigns doesn’t win the 30-Man Over-The-Top Royal Rumble Match.

With the addition of Reigns, the men’s Royal Rumble Match up to 18 confirmed entrants. There have also been 18 participants announced for the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble Match, which is everyone on the current roster who is available and doesn’t hold a title.
