WWE takes a lot of careful consideration when they are stacking a major card. A lot of things need to be taken into account. Last year’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view was capped off by the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble and Ronda Rousey’s debut with the company. This year the men will get a turn.
Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful reports that as of this afternoon, the final match on the Royal Rumble card will be the men’s Royal Rumble match.
WWE is said to be planning a huge surprise sometime during the event, or at least they were working on it as Wrestle Votes reported. It’s plausible to assume that this surprise could cap off the show like Ronda Rousey did last year.
We will have to wait and see how WWE stacks the rest of the card, but if you just want to tune in for the men’s Royal Rumble match then it’s probably going to be the last match of the night.
