WWE

The Road to WrestleMania 40 officially begins with the Royal Rumble. 30 male and 30 female superstars will compete in their respective Rumble matches to determine two world title matches at WrestleMania in April.

Following its debut in 1988, the Royal Rumble quickly became a fan-favorite event and one of WWE’s traditional “Big Four” pay-per-views. Superstars enter the match one by one at timed intervals to eliminate their opponents from the ring. The sole survivor earns a one-way ticket to WrestleMania and a world title match of their choice.

Two championship matches are currently in the works for this year’s event as well. Roman Reigns will defend his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against AJ Styles, LA Knight and Randy Orton in a Fatal Four-Way match. Logan Paul will make his first United States title defense against Top Contenders Tournament winner Kevin Owens.

Take a look at the confirmed matches for the Royal Rumble below and get a sneak peek at what could happen next. The event will stream live on Peacock on Saturday and the main card will begin at 8 p.m. ET.
