There’s always room for more. We are now less than five days before the Royal Rumble and that means it is a last minute scramble to fill in the gaps in the Royal Rumble matches. There are sixty spots to fill over the two matches and while the men’s match is mostly full, the women’s match is almost wide open and that means there are going to be some announcements over the last few days. Some of those announcements came today.
WWE has a lot of different television shows with all kinds of content coming from those shows. Some of them are built around wrestling, but there are other shows which are designed more for storyline events. There are even some when there is no new wrestling present and that allows some time for announcements to be made. That was the case on Wednesday.
This week on the Bump, WWE’s weekly morning show, three more names were confirmed for the Royal Rumble matches. First, the New Day’s Big E. and Kofi Kingston were announced for the men’s match, bringing the total number of entrants to twenty three. Next up was Natalya, who joins Charlotte, Sarah Logan, Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross as the fifth entrant in the women’s Royal Rumble. There is no word on how many names will be announced before the matches.
These three could do some damage. Check them out in action:
Opinion: All three of these names make perfect sense and there are so many spots open for the women’s Royal Rumble that you have to add in a few more. Natalya is someone who makes the most sense as she can have a watchable match with anyone. The New Day belongs in this as well with a former World Champion in Kingston and Big E. as a monster who can throw out a few people to clear some of the ring.
Which of these three will have the most success? Who do you have winning the matches? Let us know in the comments below.
