Rusev enters the Royal Rumble

During tonight's episode of Main Event, Rusev cut a promo on Ryback. Essentially, he said THE BIG GUY was lucky he was fired because if he wasn't, the Bulgarian brute (who now resides in Russia) would have mopped the mat with him.

Strong.

Then, because he doesn't have anything better to do, Rusev declared he will enter the Royal Rumble match scheduled for Sun., Jan. 25, 2015, at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He will do so as United States champion and when he wins, he will go on to headline WrestleMania 31 where he will win the WWE world heavyweight championship.

Or so he says.

Here's the updated list of official entrants in the Royal Rumble match:

- Roman Reigns
- Daniel Bryan
- Rusev
