Powell’s POV: WWE added Edge and Ali to the men’s Rumble match, and announced the WWE Women’s Tag Title match on Monday’s Raw. The Smackdown Women’s Championship still is not officially listed on the WWE website as of this update for some reason, but it was hyped on Smackdown. Join me for my live review of the Royal Rumble on Sunday beginning with the Kickoff Show at 5CT/6ET and the main card at 6CT/7ET. Dot Net Members will hear a same night audio review co-hosted by Jake Barnett and I.
