Updated list of participants in the Royal Rumble matches

We are getting closer and closer to the royal rumble Premium Live Event at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, now running for just one week. That means we have entered quite a few names for the men’s and women’s competitions.

We’ve thrown a few more names into the mix Friday night smackdown this week.

On the men’s side, before the show even went on the air, Drew McIntyre and Sheamus were announced as newcomers. This was before they kicked off the show in the first round of a tournament to crown new top contenders for the SmackDown tag team titles and defeat The Viking Raiders to advance to the semifinals.

Later, Braun Strowman explained by saying that there is no one better suited to that particular match type than him. Of course he is not wrong. Karrion Kross made similar comments when he stated in his own promo.

On the women’s side, Shayna Baszler stated that she intended to injure some people before throwing them over the top rope as well. She set a record for eliminations last year, for what that’s worth.

Later Zelina Vega told Wade Barrett and Michael Cole in commentary that she will also be in the match.

  • Cody Rhodes
  • Kofi Kingston
