Powell’s POV: WWE pulled the U.S. Championship final from this event and moved it to this past Tuesday’s edition of Smackdown Live. Samoa Joe and Paige were pulled from the Rumble matches due to injuries. The latest entrants to the Rumble matches are Dana Brooke and Alicia Fox to the women’s match, and Titus O’Neil and Apollo Crews in the men’s match.
