The WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view is coming up this Sunday and WWE is getting the card together. They made a couple of switches as they prepare the card for Phoenix.
Buddy Murphy will defend his WWE Cruiserweight Championship in a fatal four-way against Hideo Itami, Akira Tozawa, and Kalisto. This match was previously scheduled for the pay-per-view, but like a lot of 205 Live matches, it is now on the kickoff show.
The United States Title will also be moved to the kickoff show as Rusev will face Shinsuke Nakamura. So if you want to celebrate Rusev Day, you’ll have to tune in early.
Rusev vs Shinsuke Nakamura and the Cruiseweight Championship four-way match were all previously advertised for the Royal Rumble event, but they were pushed to the kick-off show.
