New Entrants Confirmed For WWE Royal Rumble Matches

More names added to the Royal Rumble matches

The Royal Rumble is fast approaching as one of WWE’s most anticipated yearly shows takes place later tonight. On last night’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown, WWE brought back the iconic tumbler for several backstage bits in which superstars approached SmackDown General Manager Nick Aldis and picked their Royal Rumble entry number. 

This led to the reveal of six more participants for the Men’s Royal Rumble match, and subsequent social media posts revealed more women’s entrants too. R-Truth, Legado Del Fantasma’s Santos Escobar, Austin Theory, Grayson Waller, LWO’s Carlito, and The Bloodline’s Jimmy Uso were revealed to be in the match. 

On the women’s side, posts to WWE’s social media saw new entrants announced such as LWO’s Zelina Vega, Alba Fyre, Shotzi, and Michin. 27 of the 60 entrants across both Rumble matches are now known.
