WWE Royal Rumble 2019 Full
The card for the 2019 Royal Rumble at Chase Field in Phoenix appears to be set. Not all 30 spots for the men and women’s Rumble have been confirmed. There is still room for 10 mystery men and seven women.
This week on Raw, Alexa Bliss, Lacey Evans, and Titus O’Neill confirmed their entry into the Rumble. Randy Orton did the same on Smackdown. There were no additional matches added as nine is probably more than enough considering each Rumble could last an hour.
I’m probably jinxing it by saying that, but there are several interesting matches. AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan might be primed to satiate our desire to see the classic we know the pair are capable of delivering. Becky Lynch and Asuka has potential, as does Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rusev and the Fatal Four Way battle for the cruiserweight title.
I haven’t mentioned the battle for the Raw Women’s title between Ronda Rousey and Sasha Banks, or the likely main event Brock Lesnar vs. Finn Balor. Here is a look at the confirmed entrants in both the men and women’s Rumble:
Last year, the women’s Rumble went on last, and that was done to allow Rousey to make an impact as she walked to the ring and motioned to the WrestleMania sign after Asuka had won the match. If neither Rumble is the main event this Sunday, it could be an indication that there won’t be a significant surprise appearance during the match.
Rumors are swirling that John Cena http://newwrestlingseries.com/ will be pulled from the Rumble with a storyline ankle injury, but that hasn’t been confirmed. Stay tuned through the week as I preview the event and examine potential swerves and other happenings.
