The Royal Rumble is back! Once a year, 30-wrestlers clash in the ring, vying for that right to fight in the main event of WrestleMania. Legends will return to compete. “The Demon of Death Valley” The Undertaker will be returning to the squared circle to send shivers down the spines of all 29 of his opponents. Goldberg will also be in the building, and he will be looking to once again destroy “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar. And you can bet your ass that Lesnar wants a piece of Goldberg.
On this night, John Cena will be looking to make history and tie the record with “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair, with 16 world title reigns. Cena is currently in second-place, as a 15-time former world champion. He’ll be looking to knock off current champion AJ Styles and take back the gold at the Alamodome. But Styles is an awesome champion, and won’t be giving up his title easily. AJ is one of the best wrestlers in the world today, who is currently 3-0 against John Cena. Let’s see if Styles can improve that record to 4-0 on Sunday night.
Kevin Owens will also be defending his WWE Universal Championship in a high-profile match against Roman Reigns. Meanwhile, WWE United States Champion Chris Jericho will be suspended high above the ring in a shark tank for the entire match. Jericho is afraid of heights too! This looks like it’s going to be a fun match. Hopefully, KO comes out on top.
Charlotte Flair will be putting her WWE Raw Women’s Championship on the line against the up-and-coming Bayley. Flair will also be putting her record-breaking pay-per-view win streak on the line. Charlotte has been victorious at 18 consecutive pay per views. Can Bayley destroy Charlotte’s streak? Or will Raw’s resident “Queen” once again come out on top? The wavy, wacky Bayley is hoping to become your new WWE Raw Women’s Champion!
WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann will also be putting his gold on the line in what is sure to be a barn burner. The devastating aerial acrobat Neville is hot on Swann’s trail. Neville is looking to crush Swann and officially become the king of the cruiserweights. Look below and find out how you can watch this event on your computer, television, tablet or mobile device. You’re not going to want to miss a second of the Rumble!
