WWE Royal Rumble 2016 full match previews: Roman Reigns & Brock Lesnar in the Rumble, Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte, more!

Don't miss WWE's Royal Rumble pay-per-view (PPV), streamed live on WWE Network!

Live from Orlando, Fla.'s Amway Center, the 29th Royal Rumble features the most famous match in WWE history, a 30 man, over-the-top rope elimination battle royal where two men start, and others arrive (roughly) every 90 to 120 seconds. For the first time in illustrious history of the Rumble the WWE World Heavyweight title will be defended. The Authority is forcing Roman Reigns to put his belt on the line against Superstars such as Brock Lesnar, Bray Wyatt, Chris Jericho and more.

In addition to that, all of WWE's titles will be on the line. Kevin Owens tries to regain the Intercontinental championship from Dean Ambrose with a Last Man Standing stipulation designed to end their vicious way. Meanwhile, the company's best booked feud gets its second title match, as Becky Lynch tries to take the Divas strap from Charlotte.

Kalisto and Alberto Del Rio have each worn the U.S. belt in the last few weeks, and the high-flying Slammy winner will try to top his TLC performance by regaining it in Florida. And it's again The Usos turn to try to end New Day's second tag title reign.

There aren't any championships at stake in Sunday night's tables match, but there's lots of experience with tables. That's because in response to the challenge of dealing with four Wyatts, the Dudley Boyz have recruited Tommy Dreamer & Rhyno for an ECW reunion!

Pre-show action does get us started sixty minutes before the three hour event with a panel previewing the festivities and a four team tag match with two berths in the Rumble on the line. Those festivities begin at 7:00PM ET/4:00PM PT, and air on WWE Network and YouTube (among other places - like right here at cSs!).

The main broadcast will begin at 8PM ET/5PM PT.  For all the ways to watch this annual event, sign-up at, or consult you cable or satellite provider.
