The show is still growing. In less than two weeks, WWE will be presenting one of its biggest shows of the year with the Royal Rumble. The show will go a long way to setting the stage for WrestleMania 38, as you will likely find out who will be involved in the show’s main event matches. Those matches will be set up by the Royal Rumble matches, and now some more names have been added.
Some more names were announced for the men’s and women’s Royal Rumble matches this week on WWE Monday Night Raw. First up, Kevin Owens announced that he will be taking part in the men’s Royal Rumble match. The announcement came during an edition of the Kevin Owens Show, as he said that he would win the match to face his guest, Seth Rollins, who would win the Universal Title at the Royal Rumble. Owens is the fifteenth entrant out of thirty in the match.
Also during the show, Liv Morgan and Bianca Belair announced that they would be entering the women’s Royal Rumble match. The announcements came before the two teamed together in a loss to Becky Lynch and Doudrop. Belair is the defending winner of the women’s Royal Rumble, having won the 2021 edition. These entrances bring the total to twenty one out of thirty entrants.
Opinion: These are the names that you need to add to the Royal Rumble matches to beef up the lineups. None of them are exactly surprising and that is not a bad thing in this case. Hopefully they leave a few surprise entrants as those are the best part of the match, but at least we do have some concrete names to look forward to. Owens and Belair certainly feel like potential winners, with Morgan as a very dark horse candidate as well.
What do you think of the current fields? Who do you have winning both matches? Let us know in the comments below.
