For the second time in it’s 29 year history the WWE World Heavyweight title will be up for grabs in the Royal Rumble match this Sunday. Following last nights episode of Raw, two new matches were added along with a couple more confirmed entries to the Rumble match itself.
The McMahons are out to get Roman Reigns following the abuse Reigns has been handling to the billionaires family. Following winning a crooked match with Vince as the referee; the chairman announced that Roman will be the first man to defend his championship in the Rumble match itself. Last night Mr McMahon announced that Reigns will enter the match at number 1. 1999 is very similar right now.
Following changing titles the past two WWE shows, Alberto Del Rio will take on Kalisto once again for the United States championship. Charlotte accepted Becky Lynchs challenge for the Diva’s championship. Whilst the Uso’s go two on two against The New Day for the tag titles.
