The following matches are advertised for the WWE Royal Rumble event that will be held on Saturday, January 29 in St. Louis, Missouri at The Dome at America’s Center.
-Men’s Royal Rumble match (Entrants: Johnny Knoxville, Austin Theory, Montez Ford, Angelo Dawkins, Rey Mysterio, Dominik Mysterio, 24 TBA)
-Women’s Royal Rumble match.
-Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship.
-Becky Lynch defends the Raw Women’s Championship.
-Edge and Beth Phoenix vs. The Miz and Maryse in a mixed tag match.
Powell’s POV: Lashley won a four-way match on Raw to earn the title shot. Lynch will defend her title against the winner of the Triple Threat match featuring Bianca Belair vs. Liv Morgan vs. Doudrop that will be held on Monday’s Raw. No entrants have been announced for the women’s Rumble match. Given the shallow depth of the women’s roster, it will be very interesting to see how they fill out that match.
