Updated list of confirmed entrants in the Royal Rumble

The final episode of WWE television prior to the Royal Rumble pay-per-view is in the books, which means we likely know everyone who is going to officially declare for either of the Royal Rumble matches.

With that in mind, here is who we know is in:


  • Brock Lesnar
  • Roman Reigns
  • King Corbin
  • Dolph Ziggler
  • Shinsuke Nakamura
  • Braun Strowman
  • Kofi Kingston
  • Big E
  • The Miz
  • John Morrison
  • Erick Rowan
  • AJ Styles
  • Randy Orton
  • Elias
  • Rey Mysterio
  • Ricochet
  • Drew McIntyre
  • Otis
  • Tucker
  • Rusev
  • Bobby Lashley
  • Aleister Black
  • Buddy Murphy
  • Seth Rollins
  • Kevin Owens
  • Samoa Joe

The official preview page has R-Truth listed as “undeclared after declaring,” which makes it unclear whether or not he’s actually going to be in the match. If he is, that’s 27 entrants and leaves just three surprises. Even if he’s not, that only leaves four open spots.

It’s damn near the opposite for the women, who hardly have any confirmed entrants:

  • Charlotte Flair
  • Sarah Logan
  • Alexa Bliss
  • Nikki Cross
  • Natalya
  • Carmella
  • Dana Brooke

The reality is they’re going to need to use pretty much the entirety of the healthy roster, stars from NXT, and returning Legends just to get to 30.

Either way, we’re close to the big show and finding out everyone when the timer ticks to zero.
