The Intercontinental champion declares for the Royal Rumble

@WWE

Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER made his return to Monday Night Raw this week in Little Rock, Arkansas, and considering we’re so close to the upcoming Royal Rumble premium live event in St. Petersburg it was fair to wonder if his appearance would give us some insight into what he would be doing on the show.

As it turns out, he straight up told us what he’ll be doing.

Indeed, after saying he’s been sick watching everyone promising to win the Royal Rumble and go on to main event WrestleMania, he reminded everyone he lasted longer than anyone in history in last year’s match, entering at number one and going all the way to the end before he was tossed out by Cody Rhodes. This time, he said, he’s going to finish the job.

So he’s in!

Here’s the updated list of confirmed entrants for the men’s match on Jan. 27 at Tropicana Field:

  • Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER
  • Cody Rhodes
  • CM Punk
  • Shinsuke Nakamura
  • Bobby Lashley
  • Drew McIntyre
