WWE Royal Rumble 2018: Final Results Including All Rumble Entrants Preview

WWE fans are hopping on the Road to Wrestlemania, and the first stop is the Royal Rumble on January 28. This year’s event marks a special occasion as it’s the first time there will be a women’s Rumble match, alongside the men. 2017’s Rumble had one of the best matches of the year with AJ Styles vs. John Cena, so hopefully, the 2018 edition will deliver something equally as exciting.

This year’s event takes place at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA. The 31st edition of the winter PPV will be huge with four championship matches and two Rumbles, plus three more events taking place on the Kickoff show. You can check out an in-depth match card with the predictions here and every confirmed wrestler for the Rumble matches here.
