There’s a big twist for this year’s Royal Rumble PPV and it’s quite the game changer.
Roman Reigns, the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion, has been forced to defend his title at the PPV by The Authority. Only this time, it won’t be within an undercard match. Reigns has to compete against 29 other men in the actual Royal Rumble match. Here’s a crazy thought – if Reigns gets thrown over the top rope, we’re guaranteed to see the crowning of a new title holder! With match entrants such as Brock Lesnar, Bray Wyatt, Chris Jericho and more, Reigns certainly has his work cut out for him.
