At the Smackdown tapings in Philly last night, the WWE made a huge announcement regarding the 2015 Royal Rumble. Spoiler — I’m going to be competing and have already drawn my number. It’s #1. Another spoiler — I’ll be the quickest exit in Royal Rumble history no matter who draws #2.
The 2015 Royal Rumble will go down at the Wells Fargo Center in the City of Brotherly Fan Fights, Philadelphia, PA, on January 25, 2015. That’s not even the best part — WWE is upping the ante this year and going back to the 40-man Rumble. Only one other Royal Rumble included 40 wrestlers and that was back in 2011.
The winner of the Royal Rumble is immediately thrown into the WWE World Heavyweight Championship picture, and they’re are now 40 men involved, so we’ll just go ahead and announce John Cena will get the first pick in the Rumble and the win the whole damn thing.
