Dave Meltzer indicated in the latest installment of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the following matches will probably take place at the upcoming Royal Rumble event:

* Kane vs. Braun Strowman
* Intercontinental Championship: Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe

Brock Lesnar is slated to be at the event in some capacity but he may not be defending the WWE Universal Championship.

In regards to a Women’s Royal Rumble match, no one within the company is currently talking about it.


The Royal Rumble event will take place on January 28, 2018, at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As always, we will be providing live play-by-play coverage of the event.
