The next of many. We are less than a month away from the Royal Rumble and that means it is time to start putting some names on some lists. The Royal Rumble requires sixth names to fill in the show’s two namesake matches and that can take some time. It makes sense to get on these things in a hurry, and that is what WWE was doing in a big way this week.
This week’s edition of Monday Night Raw saw five new names added to the Men’s Royal Rumble match. Over the course of the show, the Street Profits (Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins) and the Mysterios (Rey and Dominik) announced their entries in the match. Later, Vince McMahon added Austin Theory. This comes after Johnny Knoxville announced his own entry last weekend. The Royal Rumble takes place on January 29.
Those are some talented stars. Check out who is joining the Royal Rumble:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that needs to be done as we are now ten percent of the way to filling out both Royal Rumble fields. They are moving fast this year and that is a good sign, as it might be a bit of a trick to find thirty people for both matches. At least they have started off well enough and there are some big names to go, which should make for some entertaining weeks coming up.
What do you want added to both fields? Who do you have winning? Let us know in the comments below.
