The WWE holds their annual "Royal Rumble" pay-per-view tonight and the Road to Wrestlemania begins with this big event. One scheduled match has now been officially confirmed as PWInsider reported on Jan. 26 that Daniel Bryan made his official return from injury at a house show last night and will be ready for tonight's big show. Here is how fans can watch and follow the WWE "Royal Rumble" live stream for tonight's big show.
- Date: Jan. 26
- Time: 7:30 p.m. EST
- Live Stream: WWE.com
The WWE "Royal Rumble" live stream kicks off on WWE.com at 7:30 p.m. EST with a kickoff match for the WWE world tag team championship. The champions, Cody Rhodes and Goldust, defend their titles against WWE legends The New Age Outlaws. This match was originally thought to be part of the actual PPV but was moved to the pre-show.
Also on hand during the kickoff event will be "Nature Boy" Ric Flair, "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels and the winner of the first Royal Rumble event "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan as they offer their analysis of the show.
As for the "Royal Rumble" pay-per-view itself, there are only four matches on the card. As mentioned earlier, Daniel Bryan will face Bray Wyatt one-on-one, which is disappointing because that means neither man will be in the "Royal Rumble" match, but after Bryan's concussion, this might be the safest spot.
Next up is Brock Lesnar taking on The Big Show. Over the last few weeks, Big Show has dominated Lesnar, which looks good heading in since Lesnar will win this match on his way to "Wrestlemania 30," where he likely faces The Undertaker.
The main event before the Royal Rumble match itself sees Randy Orton defending his WWE World Championship against John Cena. The match is just a regular title match, so Orton has the DQ finish he could fall back on.
Then there is the Royal Rumble match itself. There are only 20 of the 30 names announced so far, with CM Punk as the first man in the match. That means there will be plenty of surprises, some of which might include the return of Sheamus, Christian and maybe some legends like Chris Jericho and Kevin Nash.
