Updated WWE Royal Rumble 2019 Card After This Week's Raw & SmackDown Live

WWE Championship match confirmed for Daniel Bryan and more...

The first of WWE's fabled Big Five pay-per-views of 2019 is just over three weeks away and the card is starting to take shape.

Heading into this week's pre-recorded episodes of Raw and SmackDown Live, we knew that Braun Strowman will be challenging Brock Lesnar for The Beast's Universal title, Buddy Murphy will be defending his Cruiserweight title in a Fatal 4-Way, and Drew McIntyre had entered the men's Royal Rumble match.

Now, we know the WWE Championship match, and several participants in both the men's and women's Rumbles.

Coming out of this week's shows, here is the full, up to date card: (it should be noted that the Asuka vs. Becky Lynch match that was announced by WWE themselves appears to have been scrapped completely as The Man, Charlotte and Carmella were all involved in a segment with Triple H on this week's SDLive where they all claimed they should be facing Asuka at the Rumble)
