-Drew McIntyre vs. Goldberg for the WWE Championship.
-Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens in a Last Man Standing match for the WWE Universal Championship.
-Sasha Banks vs. Carmella for the Smackdown Women’s Championship.
-Asuka and Charlotte Flair vs. Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler for the WWE Women’s Tag Titles.
Powell’s POV: Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio were both listed in a Rumble match graphic on Smackdown, but they have not been added to the official list on the WWE website as of this update. The Smackdown Women’s Championship is now officially listed. Big E also announced his entry into the men’s Rumble match. I assume Braun Strowman will also be in the match following his return 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.
