With Monday’ Raw now in the books, we’re now one Smackdown episode away from one of the more anticipated yearly events in professional wrestling history, the 2014 Royal Rumble.
30 men will be vying for the opportunity to live their dream at this year’s WrestleMania 30, live from the Superdome in New Orleans.
On tonight’s episode of Raw, we learned that the ‘Best in the World,’ CM Punk, will be the first entrant into this year’s event, making it a bit harder for him to achieve that goal of headlining ‘Mania, something that he has yet to do in his career.
There were also a few more names released today, so with that being said, here is the updated list of entrants for the 2014 Royal Rumble as it stands following tonight’s Raw:
-CM Punk is entrant #1
-Alberto Del Rio
-Big E. Langston
-Bad News Barrett
As you can see, the list right now stands at 20, so there’s still 10 more slots to filled, which could be announced on this Friday’s Smackdown broadcast.
Well, most of them at least, as I get the feeling they’re saving a potential surprise for the match.
