"Stone Cold" Steve Austin has proved himself to be one of the greats of all-time by emerging victorious in the Royal Rumble thrice. Join me for live coverage of the WWE Royal Rumble beginning with the Kickoff Show at 4CT/5ET. My picks for who will win the rumble matches.

The match begins with two wrestlers and then every two minutes a new superstar enters the bout.

Also, out of the 900 wrestlers, 869 have had their dreams shattered.

The entire main roster will be a part of the Royal Rumble match with all the big names like Asuka, Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks competing for the championship opportunity.

The clip also reveals that 52 Hall of Famers, have competed in the Royal Rumble.


For the first time in the company's history, WWE will have a men's and women's Royal Rumble match at the Royal Rumble on Sunday. But these men and women are already proven commodities in the wrestling world and the 2018 Royal Rumble is just the next challenge they are ready to conquer. Reigns has history with the building, winning first Rumble in Philadelphia and was derided shortly thereafter.

The reason she's returning to wrestling: "I retired pretty much 4 years ago and I didn't really have any intention of going back or making any kind of come back or even wrestling for any other promotion like TNA".

"Royal Rumble 2018" will broadcast live from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia at this Sunday, Jan. 28, at 7 p.m. EST, with a kick-off show two hours prior, at 5 p.m. Why not have it for a title match. "For Jericho and Omega to top it, because it had emotion, I thought that was great".

He has played a prominent part in TV storylines, and the seeds have been sown for a feud against the WWE Champion, AJ Styles, but I can't see it being anything else than a non-physical role.

The lady wrestling stars are not to be left behind. - Sheamus and Cesaro take back the "RAW" tag team titles. Sami Zayn answered it when he was still in NXT. There are a few stories and rumors going into the match, but nothing that appears solid to lead one towards a victor.

A win tonight would confirm that, but if a Smackdown superstar (like Nakamura) wins, Reigns can still get Lesnar by becoming the number one contender for that title over the course of the next few weeks. After Asuka's victory, I would have her walk up to the champions and as everyone expects her to taunt Bliss, she turns and gestures to Charlotte that she wants her title at Wrestlemania.
