2016 WWE ROYAL RUMBLE PARTICIPANTS’ HISTORY

As I do every month, it’s time to look at this weekend’s Royal Rumble Pay-Per-View and see the history of all of the participants. As of press time, the entire Rumble Participant List has not been released, so for simplicity’s sake, every active wrestler on the WWE Roster will be listed with their Rumble history in case they get added to the Rumble Match. To see the entire 29 year history of the Royal Rumble, visit the Rumble History Page HERE. And for any feedback or comments about this, comment below or tweet me (@hbkid718). Thanks.

The Royal Rumble Match itself will be the Main Event of the show, therefore it will be the following wrestlers’ 2nd year in a row in the Main Event: Dean Ambrose, Curtis Axel, King Barrett, The Big Show, Bubba Ray Dudley, Big E, Fandango, Goldust, Luke Harper, Kane, Kofi Kingston, The Miz, Titus O’Neil, Roman Reigns, Adam Rose, R-Truth, Rusev, Ryback, Zack Ryder, Damien Sandow, Stardust, Jack Swagger, Bray Wyatt, & Dolph Ziggler. It will be the 1st main event for everyone else.

No opener has been announced. The only wrestler to compete in an opening match that is scheduled to compete this year is Alberto Del Rio in 2013. The Kick Off Show has been announced & will be everyone’s 1st Kick Off Show Match. Bubba Ray Dudley, Damien Sandow, & Jack Swagger will be the 6th year in a row that someone went from the main event of one Rumble PPV to the Kick Off Show on the next.

Also, a wrestler may be doing double duty by competing in a match & the Rumble match. Nothing has been announced, so to avoid redundancy, the wrestlers will only be listed under their respective matches. And if they do that, it will be the 6th year in a row someone competed twice at a Royal Rumble. And if they do, then it will be the 2nd year in a row that Big E & Kofi Kingston will compete twice at the Royal Rumble. No one else has competed twice before at a Royal Rumble.

30-MAN ROYAL RUMBLE FOR THE WWE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

This will be the 37th WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match at a Royal Rumble. The title has changed hands 7 times at a Royal Rumble, with the last title change taking place in 2013.

Roman Reigns will be the 1st active World Champion to compete in a Royal Rumble since Hulk Hogan in 1990. He will be the 1st person to win the Rumble and then be the 1st entrant the following year since The Undertaker in 2007 & 2008.
