Finn Balor and Seth Rollins announce their participation in the Royal Rumble

Balor and Rollins will join five other men who have also declared that they will be in this year’s Royal Rumble at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona.

As of late, the WWE has been using social media and house shows to announce participants in the upcoming pay-per-view that takes place on Sunday, January 27. Rollins’ participation in the match gives a sign that he might not face Dean Ambrose for the title. Recently, he was denied an opportunity by Triple H, who said that the rematch clause has been removed.

For Balor, this announcement means he is taking the necessary steps towards winning the Rumble, and capturing the belt he never lost. Balor was forced to vacate the belt after an injury he sustained during a match with Rollins for the inaugural universal championship back in August 2016.

Here’s a current list of the confirmed entrants for the men’s Royal Rumble:

  • R-Truth (will enter at number 30 for winning the Mixed Match Challenge)
  • Drew McIntyre
  • Big E
  • Kofi Kingston
  • Xavier Woods
