The Royal Rumble is now just under three weeks away and already many WWE Superstars have already announced their participation in the match.
The 2017 Rumble will be back to the old format where the winner will be given the opportunity to compete in the main event of WrestleMania.
Last year’s Rumble obviously saw the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on the line, with Triple H coming out victorious.
Names that have already been announced for the match are Goldberg, Brock Lesnar, Big E, Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods, Chris Jericho, Braun Strowman, Baron Corbin and The Undertaker. Seth Rollins added his name to this list last night on Twitter when he declared that he would be winning the match and main eventing WrestleMania since he missed out on the opportunity this year.
“Last year I missed @WrestleMania. This year I’ll be in the main event. Officially announcing my entry into the #RoyalRumble. #tearitdown”
Undertaker also announced his participation in a blockbuster promo last night on Raw and now becomes the heavy favourite ahead of the 30-man match.
Many more names are expected to be announced in the coming weeks, as WWE turns around the final corner on the Road to WrestleMania.
