WWE Royal Rumble 2020: The Male Entrants You Need to Know

The Road to WrestleMania 36 is always paved with gold, #1 contenders, and broken dreams.

In order to grab hold of the former, the men and women of WWE must enter wrestling’s most popular battle royale – the iconic Royal Rumble. Last year, Seth Rollins took home the big W for the Men’s Royal Rumble and went on to defeat Brock Lesnar for his Universal Championship at WrestleMania 35. Now we look towards the 2020 Men’s Royal Rumble matchup to see who’ll come out on top and earn a career-making opportunity at the biggest stage of them all – WrestleMania 36. Now that NXT will play a much bigger role at this year’s show, we’ll be sure to see the up and coming superstars of that third brand step up to compete with Raw and SmackDown Live’s finest.

Let’s take a look at the men who’ll be fighting tooth and nail to attain victory at the 2020 Royal Rumble event.
