Updated list of entrants in the 2017 Royal Rumble match

Before this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, WWE was relying on the star power of Brock Lesnar and Bill Goldberg to sell the Royal Rumble match. But there are 30 spots in the annual over-the-top-rope battle royal and we were going to get some new names sooner rather than later.

Sure enough, some names were added to the list.

So far, here are the confirmed list of entrants for the match, which will take place in the main event of the pay-per-view (PPV) of the same name on Sun., Jan. 29, 2017, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas:

  • Goldberg
  • Brock Lesnar
  • Braun Strowman
  • Chris Jericho
  • Big E
  • Kofi Kingston
  • Xavier Woods

That’s 7 of 30, and we can expect more names to be announced next week. Perhaps Undertaker, who is making his return, will be one of them?

Stay tuned.
