2017 WWE ROYAL RUMBLE PPV 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 30 year history of the Royal Rumble, visit the Rumble History Page HERE or search “#RRWL” or #DBWL” on Twitter. 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, which will be the 4th year in a row that happened. This will be the 4th year in a row in the Main Event for Dean Ambrose, Kofi Kingston, The Miz, Rusev, & Dolph Ziggler, & if they are in the match, Kane, Roman Reigns, R-Truth, & Jack Swagger. This will be the 3rd year in a row in the Main Event for The Big Show, Luke Harper, & Bray Wyatt, & if they are in the match, Curtis Axel, Goldust, & Titus O’Neil. This will be the 2nd year in a row in the Main Event for Chris Jericho, Brock Lesnar, Sheamus, Braun Strowman, & Sami Zayn, & if they are in the match: Tyler Breeze, Mark Henry, Neville, Kevin Owens, & AJ Styles. It will be Cesaro & Big E’s 1st Main Event since 2015, The Undertaker’s 1st Main Event since 2007, & Goldberg’s 1st Main Event since 2004. If they are in the Main Event, it will be the 1st for Seth Rollins & The Usos since 2014 & Fandango since 2015. It will be everyone else’s 1st Main Event.

 

No opener has been announced. The only wrestler to compete in an opening match that is scheduled to compete this year is Kevin Owens, who competed last year in the opener. If the Cruiserweight Title is in the opener, then it will be the 1st since 2006. Everyone else that has competed in an opener are scheduled for the Royal Rumble Match, itself. The Kickoff Show has been announced. Since Sheamus is scheduled for both the Kickoff Match & the Rumble, it will be the 7th year in a row that someone went from the main event of one Rumble PPV to the Kickoff Show on the next. It will be Cesaro’s 1st Kickoff Show since 2015, Nikki Bella & Natalya’s 1st since 2010, & Sheamus, Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows, Sasha Banks, Nia Jax, Becky Lynch, Naomi, Alexa Bliss, & Mickie James’ 1st Kickoff Show. It will be the 1st Tag Title Match to be on the Kickoff Show since 2014 & the 1st Women’s Matches to be on the Kickoff Show since 2010.

 

Also, a wrestler may be doing double duty by competing in a match & the Rumble match. Besides Cesaro & Sheamus, no other Rumble participants have been announced to compete in another match, & no other match participants have been announced to participate in the Rumble. It will be the 7th year in a row someone competed twice at a Royal Rumble. And to avoid redundancy, the wrestlers will only be listed under their respective matches, and not in the Rumble, but I will refer to their Rumble history.

 

This will be the 1st Royal Rumble since 2015 to not have a WWE Intercontinental or United States Championship Match. It will be the 1st time since 2010, which had 2, to have multiple Women’s Matches & the 1st to have 3.

 

 

30 MAN ROYAL RUMBLE (The Announced Participants are WWE Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose, Big Cass, WWE Raw Tag Team Champion Cesaro, Baron Corbin, Big E, The Big Show, Goldberg, Luke Harper, WWE United States Champion Chris Jericho, Kofi Kingston, Brock Lesnar, The Miz, Randy Orton, Mojo Rawley, Rusev, WWE Raw Tag Team Champion Sheamus, Braun Strowman, The Undertaker, Xavier Woods, Bray Wyatt, Sami Zayn, & Dolph Ziggler

This is the 30th Royal Rumble & the 30th year in a row that there was a Royal Rumble Match. If you count each year as 30 separate participants, this years’s 30th Participant will be the 900th Participant in Royal Rumble History. This will be the 1st time since 2013 that the Intercontinental, United States, & both Tag Team Champions are in the Royal Rumble Match. For each wrestlers’ individual Rumble Records, look for their name below.
