As the WWE Royal Rumble draws closer, the planned match order for the event has been revealed based on an internal production listing.

The show, which marks the beginning of the road to WrestleMania 40 in Philadelphia this April, currently has four confirmed matches, including two title bouts. It’s worth noting that this number of matches is slightly lower than what was typical for Premium Live Events under Triple H’s booking, which usually featured 5-6 matches. However, there’s a specific reason for this.

Both Royal Rumble matches, for men and women, are expected to be lengthy, possibly spanning an hour or even longer. Additionally, the other two matches on the card are anticipated to receive ample time for their storytelling.

According to Fightful Select, the current scheduled match order for tonight’s WWE Royal Rumble is as follows:


Women’s Royal Rumble Match:

  • Confirmed Competitors: Bayley, Nia Jax, Bianca Belair, Becky Lynch

Undisputed WWE Universal Championship Match:

  • Roman Reigns (champion) vs. LA Knight vs. AJ Styles vs. Randy Orton

WWE United States Championship Match:

  • Logan Paul (champion) vs. Kevin Owens

Men’s Royal Rumble Match:

  • Confirmed Competitors: Cody Rhodes, CM Punk, Bobby Lashley, Shinsuke Nakamura, Drew McIntyre, GUNTHER, Damian Priest, Kofi Kingston, Jimmy Uso, Santos Escobar, R-Truth, Carlito, Austin Theory, Grayson Waller

With this lineup and match order, the WWE Royal Rumble promises to deliver an action-packed and exciting evening of professional wrestling.
