Two Matches Moved To WWE Royal Rumble 2019 Kickoff Show

Rusev and Nakamura won't be happy...

The 2019 Royal Rumble pay-per-view takes place this Sunday from Chase Field in Pheonix, Arizona, and it looks like WWE's card has been finalised - as they always say, however, the card is subject to change.

Two matches have been moved to the kickoff show, which starts at 5E/2P and will include the return of John Bradshaw Layfield. And yes, they are the two matches you'd expect to see given the boot from the main card, with Nakamura vs. Rusev for the United States Championship, and the Cruiserweight Championship Fatal 4-Way on the move.

As things stand, here is the updated card for Royal Rumble 2019:
