WWE Royal Rumble 2017: What time, how to watch, who is in

Roman Reigns faced Jericho and Owens in a handicap match for his United States title and lost to Jericho. During the Rumble, 30 wrestlers from both Raw and SmackDown go at it in an attempt to score a chance to fight in the Championship at WrestleMania (the Super Bowl of the WWE world).

Roman is now favored at 4/6 odds meaning a $6 bet would yield $4 upon success.

The WWE Royal Rumble 2017 is almost upon us and fans are hedging their bets as to who will win when The Undertaker and Goldberg enter into the ring. You could add extra episodes to RAW or Smackdown based around who the Undertaker is going to challenge at WrestleMania. Vote in our poll below and sound off with your opinions in the comment section! The WCW champion was soon joined by Lesnar as his manager Paul Heyman promised that The Beast Incarnate would personally eliminate Goldberg from the Royal Rumble.

Now we're down to three, but since Finn Balor isn't really a demon he can't actually recover from injury faster than a normal human.

Meltzer has previously reported that Joe will be in one of Wrestlemania's top matches, and many expect him to debut in this weekend's Royal Rumble to begin his push.

"Seeing him backstage, he was so nice and he came up to me and said "hi" and I was like, "wait, you're saying "hi" to me?" Brock Lesnar and Goldberg too will be part of the event and will meet in a match since Survivor Series where Goldberg defeated Brock Lesnar. He's on the bench. The Rumble is also remembered for Drew Carey's entry - and subsequent terror/bribery when Kane arrived - being one of the better celebrity comedy spots in wrestling. Zayn has an exciting wrestling arsenal and a character that's slowly getting over with fans. His only reasonable feud is one with Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship. The guy is as entertaining as he's ever been and he's hardly lost a step in the ring (the secret is DDP Yoga, apparently). This is what makes it very unlikely that "The Cleaner" makes the surprise entrance during the 30-man match on Sunday, if he in fact has chosen to sign with WWE.

Undertaker, Goldberg, and Lesnar aren't the only people to be excited about this Sunday at the Royal Rumble. It's plausible that WWE officials may want Roman Reigns to go over Undertaker at Wrestlemania, which may be a problem with the WWE Universe. It will be bad, but you'll love it.
