We can only imagine the possibilities of who Knoxville will match up against in the Royal Rumble match. It will certainly be something to watch, that is for sure.
Knoxville will not be the first celebrity to enter the Royal Rumble match. Back in 2001, comedian and current Price is Right host Drew Carey entered the signature match. He watched as Matt and Jeff Hardy eliminated each other, but after a failed attempt to bribe Kane, Carey eliminated himself from the match.
The 2022 Royal Rumble will take place on Saturday, Jan. 29 live from The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis, MO.
