Daniel Bryan became the first wrestler to declare for the Royal Rumble this year on Friday Night SmackDown last week. This week’s episode of Monday Night Raw saw three more wrestlers join him.
On the men’s side, Bobby Lashley made clear he’ll be entering the match. The previously rumored matchup between Lashley and Matt Riddle appears to have been put on the back burner for the time being.
On the women’s side, Nia Jax announced her plans to win the women’s Royal Rumble match. Shayna Baszler echoed that sentiment but as of right now, WWE.com isn’t listing her as an official entrant. It seems obvious that will change sooner rather than later, both because of what she said and because there are only so many women available for such a big match.
