Things have changed drastically around the Royal Rumble event ever since Mr. Mcmahon announced the rumble match itself will be for the WWE world heavyweight title. This changed the very concept of the Rumble event where the winner meets the champion at Wrestlemania for the title. But this time, the rumble winner gets even bigger prize i.e. the title itself.

Now the stake is even higher with the beast incarnate making his return last night and officially manifold his name as a rumble entrant where he single-handedly opted out half of the roster from the ring and delivered an F-5 to the champion. Lesnar has his eyes firmly set on the WWE world heavyweight championship post-RAW and wants to regain the title which he never lost at last year’s Wrestlemania. He is now being advertised as the 29th superstar for the match. The full list is as follows:

 

 

 1.  Roman Reigns

 2. Kofi Kingston

 3.  Big E

 4. Xavier Woods

 5. Kalisto

 6. Dean Ambrose

 7.  Bray Wyatt

 8.  Erick Rowan

 9.   Luke Harper

10. Braun Strowman

11.Brock Lesnar

12. Big Show

13. Chris Jericho

14. Jimmy Uso

15. Jey Uso

16. Alberto Del Rio

17. Sheamus

18. Adam Rose

19. Heath Slater

20. Bo Dallas 

21. Curtis Axel

22. D-Von Dudley

23. Bubba Ray Dudley

24. Stardust

25. Goldust

26. Dolph Ziggler

27. Mark Henry

29. Titus O’Neil

30. Ryback

From the list, Kalisto and Alberto Del Rio can be removed as they will be involved in the US title feud. The Usos can be removed as well for their involvement in the Tag team title shot after their victory over the New Day on RAW which leaves 4 to 5 slots where we can see some surprise entrants such as Randy Orton, Cesaro, Daniel Bryan, AJ styles and recently signed NJPW stars such as Drew Gallows.
