This week’s episode of Monday Night Raw was centered around the return of several WWE legends and Hall of Famers.
Despite this, WWE were aware that they needed to continue to build towards the upcoming Royal Rumble pay-per-view since only three stars have officially announced their entry.
Bobby Lashley and Daniel Bryan are the only names in the men’s match at present, while Nia Jax is the only woman to officially announce her place.
Interestingly, Daniel Bryan recently became the favorite to win the 2021 Royal Rumble and could be setting up the match with Roman Reigns that has been teased for several weeks.
This week, ahead of Raw, Charlotte announced her place in the Women’s Royal Rumble, a match that she walked out as the winner of, just 12 months ago.
The Queen went on to challenge for the NXT Women’s Championship at WrestleMania where she was victorious over Rhea Ripley.
AJ Styles also announced that he had decided to add his name into the hat for the men’s Royal Rumble match, the bout that The Phenomenal One made his debut at back in 2016. Could 2021 finally be the year of AJ Styles, now that he has Omos in his corner?
