The 2018 Royal Rumble is going to be the rumble pay-per-view for the ages. Not only will it feature the usually 30-men Royal Rumble match, but for the first time well see a 30-women royal rumble match. The match is highlighted by undefeated Auska, Absolution with Paige, Mandy Rose, and Sonya Deville. We will also witness the Riot Squad (Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan, and Sarah Logan), Bayley, Sasha Banks, and 5-time women’s Champion Mickey James participate in this historic event.

For the men’s side, the Royal Rumble can go either way. We should look forward to seeing John Cena or Randy Orton win his third Royal Rumble match, which ties Shawn Michaels, or Finn Balyor, Shinsuke Nakamura, and Elias becomes first-time winners. Winner goes on to the main event of WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
People tried to take away everything I earned last year. After I win the #RoyalRumble match, I’m taking away every one of your hopes and dreams. I’m taking the main event of @WrestleMania. #RumbleForAll

A sunny morning on the first day of 2018. Possibilities are endless, opportunities are plentiful. Time to #EarnTheDay because on January 28th, I’m entering the #RoyalRumble match and earning a chance at history @WrestleMania! #Raw

Championships will be up for grabs the longest reigning WWE universal champion Brock Lesner putting his title on the line against Kane and Braun Strowman and WWE Champion AJ Styles defending his title in a Handicap match against Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens at the first pay-per-view of 2018. We will also find out who will become the New United States champion after Dolph Ziggler dropped the title last December.
I like how checking on a referee’s well-being is enough of a reason for @shanemcmahon to put his hands on his top superstar.
