WWE’s Royal Rumble event is coming up on January 27th and at this point, the only person we know to expect is R-Truth in the #30 entry spot. They need 29 other names, therefore we can expect a lot more names announced.
WWE decided to give Drew McIntyre a special Christmas present today and they officially announced that he will be in the Royal Rumble match as well.
This is an interesting development because it not only lets us know what McIntyre will be up to during the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. It will also give him a clear direction from this point. Royal Rumble winners are also sometimes the type of people who are eager to announce their entry.
We will just have to tune in and see what kind of direction Drew McIntyre heads toward as he is expected to receive a push in 2019.
