WWE Royal Rumble updated lineup: C.M. Punk vs. The Rock and the Royal Rumble match headline Sunday's pay-per-view

Jan 23, 2013 - 10:57 AM

The following matches are advertised for the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view, which takes place on Sunday in Phoenix, Arizona.

-C.M. Punk vs. The Rock for the WWE Championship.

-The 30-man Royal Rumble match.

-Alberto Del Rio vs. Big Show in a Last Man Standing match for the World Hvt. Championship.

-Daniel Bryan and Kane vs. Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow for the WWE Tag Team Championship.

-Antonio Cesaro vs. The Miz for the U.S. Championship.

Powell's POV: The U.S. Title match will be the free preview match. It was added to the lineup on Tuesday. The only major development regarding the Royal Rumble match is that Dolph Ziggler will be either the No. 1 or No. 2 entrant (not that it matters since they start the match together). Join me for live coverage of Raw tonight and Chris Shore and I for live coverage of the WWE Royal Rumble on Sunday.
