WWE Royal Rumble 2015: Seth Rollins added to John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar title match main event

At the start of tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw in Corpus Christi, The Authority kicked off the party with a major announcement: The John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar WWE world heavyweight championship match scheduled for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view on Sun., Jan. 25, 2015, at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is now a triple threat match.

The third participant? Seth Rollins.

The justification for the move was that Rollins helped put Triple H and Stephanie McMahon back in power and his reward will be a shot at the title. If nothing else, it freshens up the third showdown between Cena and Lesnar in the past six PPV events.

And it provides an even easier opportunity for Rollins to cash in the Money in the Bank briefcase following the match, provided he loses it.

Your thoughts?

The updated Royal Rumble match card and line up:

- Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena vs. Seth Rollins
- Royal Rumble (Reigns, Bryan declared)
