    As one of the most popular pay-per-views in WWE history, Royal Rumble is highlighted by a 30-Man Royal Rumble Match that features Superstars from Raw and SmackDown LIVE. Two Superstars will start the action with another entering every two minutes until all 30 participants have emerged and a winner can be decided. That Superstar will be victorious once his 29 opponents have thrown over the top rope with both feet touching the ringside floor. Once that happens, the winner will receive a World Championship opportunity at WrestleMania.

    The monumental event, which will stream live on WWE Network, will be broadcasted around the world. The 2018 Royal Rumble marks the 30th anniversary of the prestigious event, which was first held in January 1988 at the Copps Coliseum in Hamilton, Ontario, CA.

    How will Elias fare against 29 other Superstars in the Royal Rumble Match? Find out Sunday, Jan. 28, at 7 ET/4 PT, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network.
    Confirmed entrants:

    Elias
    Randy Orton
    Shinsuke Nakamura

    John Cena
    Finn Balor
    Baron Corbin
    Matt Hardy
    Samoa Joe
    Bray Wyatt

    Re: Royal Rumble 2018 - Men's Royal Rumble Match

    3 options; Orton, Nakamura and Reigns.

    I think Orton will turn heel soon and initiate a feud between him and Nakamura, where they'll be fighting to face Styles at Mania. I think either could win the Rumble and move on to face Styles or if not, then they'll both face Styles in a triple threat.

    Reigns is the IC champion but him winning the Rumble is easy to see. I think he'll end up with both titles on his shoulders at Mania, or he could defend the IC title inside the Elimination Chamber and drop it there. Lesnar isn't scheduled for the Chamber ppv so the title isn't going to be defended there which means the Elimination Chamber will either be for the #1 contender spot or it could be used as an IC title match.

    Reigns is destined for the 'Mania main event, give this win to someone else.

    Hope it's not Reigns or Orton. I hate it when they give us repeat winners. I want to see a first time winner. Reigns will probably drop the IC title to Samoa Joe soon. Reigns should win the Elimination chamber match to get his title shot against Lesnar. Nakamura should win the Rumble so he can go on to face Styles at WrestleMania.

    This. Since its pretty much locked on that Reigns will be in the Mania Main event, use this to push a Smackdown superstar the win. Hopefully, Nakamura will win this and win the championship at Mania. I wouldn't mind seeing Joe win but it is very unlikely with him being on RAW.

    I want this basically. All except Nakamura winning at Wrestlemania. Now don't get me wrong, I like Nakamura but I don't think that he really needs the big title win at Wrestlemania. Yes, he has not had the best few matches of ppv recently. Losing to Jinder Mahal at Summerslam and at Hell In A Cell and being first to be eliminated in the RAW vs Smackdown Survivor Series 5 on 5 Match. But in this scenario Nakamura would win the Royal Rumble and be in a WWE Title match at Wrestlemania. I think that's enough to establish him as a big main eventer alone, he doesn't need the win. Neither does AJ which means it comes down to rewarding the most hard working of the two in the past year, and in my opinion that's AJ Styles. I would have AJ Styles win at WM and have his big moment which is justly deserved and have Nakamura beat him in a rematch. That's what I would do and what I want happen.

    Haven’t heard it mentioned but what about Cena?

    AJ Styles vs Cena at Mania sounds pretty damn great to me.

    They do put on good matches together. However, hasn't Cena been exclusive to RAW lately? I know he has the whole free agent appear on both shows thing, but hasn't been mentioned in forever.

    Edit: forgot he was on Team Smackdown! Hahaha. I'm a dumbass

    I mean that would be great but I'm kinda tired of that since they've had so many matches together in last year and a half

    They’ve had three matches

    Cena could break Flair’s record as well. Seems like a Mania story to me.

    Re: Royal Rumble 2018 - Men's Royal Rumble Match

    Cena or Nakamura seems like the 2 best options right now. While part of me would love to see Nak/AJ on the big stage i'm not sure which Nakamura will show up. NJPW Nakamura or WWE main roster Nakamura. If the former is up for it then it could be a great match.

    Cena/AJ is a much safer option though and would easily be a great title match.

    As much as I feel like that match would be fantastic I don't think they'll go with Shinsuke based purely off the year he's had since leaving NXT; he's over as fuck thanks to his music but nothing he's done on the main roster has earned him a Rumble win and Mania title shot and I think that even those of us that would love to see that regardless would find it ultimately disappointing on the night - the build might win us over and the match would likely be MOTYC quality but that initial Rumble win would feel a little dead I think.

    Weird to say this because it's Cena and most of the reason I don't want Reigns or Orton is because they've already won the Rumble a bunch of times and they don't need it - but Cena/Styles seems like the best option right now in terms of how to build towards it and the resulting match as well as that immediate reaction on the night.

    Actually they had 6 if you include the 6 man tag, the triple threat, and the EC match.

    Re: Royal Rumble 2018 - Men's Royal Rumble Match

    John Cena winning the 2017 Royal Rumble, for me, is an non option. If John Cena wins, that'll be Cena, Randy Orton and Triple H being the winners of the Royal Rumble in this so called "New Era". That's not right in my opinion. They should use the Royal Rumble to build someone new, maybe Jason Jordan, Braun Strowman, even Baron Corbin. Just someone new, ANYONE new. Use the Royal Rumble to make a star, not bolster old ones. I have NO interested in seeing Cena vs Styles at Mania, regardless of the result or have Cena win the Royal Rumble. Maybe that's just me.

    Re: Royal Rumble 2018 - Men's Royal Rumble Match

    While I agree someone new would be great, it's already pretty well set in stone for Reigns/Lesnar, so that pretty much excludes anyone on Raw from winning the Rumble, minus Reigns. I feel like the WWE wants Cena to break Flair's "record" of 16 title reigns and WrestleMania seems like the best place for it to happen. Not to mention, they already know the good-to-great matches that Cena & Styles put together, so it's a safe option to go with that one, honestly. Plus, do we want to see someone like Corbin win it, only to lose his shot at a later PPV? Because I doubt they want Corbin in a Main Event spot come Mania.

    I don't think we have to worry about Corbin winning or main eventing anytime soon.
