Two matches added to the Rumble Kickoff show




The Royal Rumble Kickoff show will feature two matches, one of them with the Raw Tag Team titles on the line.

Cesaro and Sheamus will be defending their titles against number one contenders Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson with two referees assigned to the match. The other match on the card is Sasha Banks vs Nia Jax.

Meanwhile, four more Superstars from the Raw brand have been added to the Rumble. These are Big Show, Sami Zayn, Big Cass, and Rusev. Raw now has 13 Superstars in the Rumble, Smackdown has 7 Superstars and the Undertaker, not attached to any brand, is the other individual in the match. With less than a week to go, there are still 9 empty spots, a few of which will probably be filled tonight on Smackdown.
