So far, 2 men have been confirmed for the men’s Royal Rumble – Drew McIntyre and R-Truth who enters at #30 after winning the Mixed Match Challenge with Carmella.
Another person who has just teased entering the 2019 men’s Royal Rumble match is WWE Legend and Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle. The WWE legend recently took to Instagram and recounted his title match against Chris Benoit at the 2003 Royal Rumble. However, what was interesting was that Angle started the post with the words “Up next….. Royal Rumble in January 2019”:
Up next….. Royal Rumble in January 2019. 16 years ago I had the privilege of defending my WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble. This is how the match was explained verbally to those who haven’t watched it. “Professional wrestling in its purest form is as beautiful as ballet, as elegant as a ballroom dance and as captivating as a theater. By purest form I mean technical wrestling, which in today’s world is almost non-existent. The fiery chain wrestling, involving great chemistry, in-ring psychology and dream like story telling is something that happens when all the stars align.” This match was one of my best performances of my career. If you haven’t seen it, give it a look. #itstrue #wwe #championship #royalrumble
