In a few days, to be precise Sunday 31 January, the Royal Rumble 2021 will be held, the first Pay Per View and the first major event of the year for WWE. The company is still working to create the official card for the event and there are still some matches to complete the program.
Waiting to complete the rosters of the male and female 'real brawl' there are three matches missing if the company of Vince McMahon wants to have the same number of matches as last year. The matches valid for the WWE Championship and the Universal Championship have already been announced, then there is the Tag Team Match valid for the WWE Women's Tag Team titles with Asuka and Charlotte Flair who will challenge Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.
Although Riddle won the Gauntlet Match against Hurt Business, thus earning the chance to challenge Bobby Lashley for the US Championship, it still has to be announced for the Royal Rumble and the question remains whether the match will actually be held in this event.
Same situation for the long-awaited rematch between The Fiend and Randy Orton with the former who still has to show himself after the last major defeat suffered.
Latest news on 2021 Royal Rumble
Here is the program with full coverage of the Royal Rumble and the participants in the male and female royal brawl: Men's Royal Rumble Daniel Bryan Bobby Lashley AJ Styles Randy Orton Otis The Miz Jey Uso Cesaro Jeff Hardy Edge John Morrison Mustafa Ali Sheamus Women's Royal Rumble Charlotte Flair Bianca Belair Bayley Mandy Rose Dana Brooke Alexa Bliss Shayna Baszler Tamina Ruby Riott Liv Morgan The other matches already announced will then be: Roman Reigns vs Kevin Owens - Last Man Standing Match (WWE Universal Championship) Drew McIntyre vs Goldberg (WWE Championship) Asuka and Charlotte Flair vs Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler (Tag Team WOMEN'S Champion Raw).
At present, Bianca Belair and Shayna Baszler are tied for the number of eliminations in one Royal Rumble match. Both women have eliminated eight women whilst former WWE Women's Champion Charlotte Flair was able to eliminate nine overall in her first three Rumble matches.
The fact that these records are so low means that both of them could change this weekend, since Belair and Baszler have to eliminate just two stars to break Charlotte's record. That being said, if Rhea Ripley makes her Royal Rumble debut this weekend, then she could set the tone for her main roster career by breaking the single match elimination record by taking out nine other women.
Since the men's Royal Rumble elimination record sits at 13, it's likely that the women's will be pushed up from eight in the future. There are several women set to be part of this match this weekend who could completely dominate and prove their worth.
