The WWE Royal Rumble Premium Live Event has already garnered a ton of hype as the company always plans some surprise entrants in store for the event every year. However, it appears two top stars have been removed from the Royal Rumble poster.

Charlotte Flair has been on the shelf after suffering a knee injury on the December 8th, for which she has been recovering from surgery since January 5th. She isn’t the only injured top star in WWE as Seth Rollins is dealing with torn meniscus injury.

Therefore, it comes as no surprise that both Charlotte Flair and Seth Rollins have been removed from the Royal Rumble poster. They have been replaced by Nia Jax and Drew McIntyre, who have been confirmed for the women’s and men’s Royal Rumble matches respectively.

Interestingly, Sami Zayn and Rey Mysterio, originally featured on the poster, remain despite their absence from television for a while. Nonetheless, fans are excited for the Royal Rumble event on January 27th, so we’ll have ot see how the event will turn out.
