The next pay-per-view (PPV) on the WWE schedule is the Royal Rumble event set to take place on Sun., Jan. 26, 2014, at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the company's annual beginning of the year showcase that will crown the next number one contender to the WWE world heavyweight championship.
We're now just one week away from showtime and three matches on the card are official.
- Randy Orton vs. John Cena (WWE world heavyweight championship)
The rematch! Actually, this is like the 678th time these two will have wrestled each other and is perhaps the defining feud of the past 10 years in WWE. That's why it's so easy to bill this as a mega-match, though it's really not.
- Brock Lesnar vs. Big Show
- Royal Rumble
There are now 16 confirmed participants in the match. They are:
Alberto Del Rio
Big E Langston
Bad News Barrett
Expect a couple surprises, a return or two, and a couple more jobbers in the remaining 14 slots.
That's the card so far, Cagesiders. Expect the pre-show match, as well as the rest of the card, to be announced this week.
