WWE Royal Rumble 2017 Participants
Known entrants (24): Bill Goldberg, Brock Lesnar, Big E, Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods, Chris Jericho, Braun Strowman, Baron Corbin, The Undertaker, Dean Ambrose, The Miz, Dolph Ziggler, Sheamus, Cesaro, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton, Luke Harper, Big Show, Sami Zayn, Big Cass, Rusev, Mojo Rawley
The namesake and selling point of the PPV comes in the form of a 30-man battle royal where every entrant is a random draw. Every minute and a half or so, a new person enters and they can only be eliminated via going over the top rope. Former winners include Steve Austin, John Cena, Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, Ric Flair, Undertaker, Batista, he-who-shall-not-be-named-due-to-racism, and he-who-shall-not-be-named-due-to-murder.
As it is right now, the big story is that Goldberg and Lesnar will be involved. At Survivor Series , Goldberg made a return match against Lesnar and to everyone’s surprise, he destroyed him within a minute and a half. Goldberg then decided that he wanted to try for one more title reign and entered himself into the match. In response, an emotional Paul Heyman claimed that Lesnar would enter as well to get revenge on that Survivor Series massacre.
On an episode of Raw , the New Day announced that they would enter the Rumble as part of their New Year's resolution. The same episode had Chris Jericho drop the bombshell that he'd be in it as well as Braun Strowman showing up to claim his spot. On SmackDown , during the contract signing between Cena and Styles, Baron Corbin showed up to announce his Rumble spot.
Seth Rollins made his participation known on the following
Raw , soon overshadowed by the Undertaker, who also intends to appear in the match.
The following SmackDown had Ambrose and Miz confirm their inclusions during the opening promo. Afterwards, on Talking Smack , Ziggler did the same.
Sheamus announced his spot on Twitter, followed by Cesaro and later the Club. That night on Raw , Michael Cole namedropped Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton as participants. The following night, Harper was confirmed as well.
Big Show, Big Cass, and Rusev announced being part of the match, but when Sami Zayn asked for a spot, Stephanie McMahon made him compete against Seth Rollins where the winner would be in the Rumble. Thanks to a distraction from Triple H's theme music, Rollins got pinned by a roll-up.
On the go-home SmackDown , Mojo Rawley won a battle royal for a Rumble spot.
The two biggest rumors are Samoa Joe and Finn Balor . While Finn's health is up in the air, Joe is very likely due to basically being done with being a major cog in NXT. If he isn't in the Rumble match, expect him to show up on one of the two main shows in the days that follow.
Seth Rollins called out Triple H at NXT to set up probably a Wrestlemania match up although, security didn't allow the 'Freaking' Rollins to touch 'the Game'
