We are only a couple of hours away from one of the most awaited times of the year, The Royal Rumble. 30 men/women will compete in the ring for an opportunity of a lifetime. The traditional Royal Rumble Match is an over-the-top-rope elimination match where the last man/woman standing in the ring will obtain a shot at the top title at the show of shows, WrestleMania.

One of the most exciting features of the Royal Rumble match is that it is unpredictable and full of surprises. In the past, many old-school legends have revealed themselves as surprise entrants in the Rumble. Sometimes, superstars who have been away from the ring for a long time make their surprise returns at the Rumble.

Though Cody Rhodes’ return is no longer a surprise, The American Nightmare is a confirmed participant in the Royal Rumble match. Besides that, he is also the odds-on favorite to win the match and headline WrestleMania. However, we are going to wait and see who wins the Royal Rumble 2023.

So far, there are 19 confirmed entrants in the Men’s Royal Rumble Match. It’s worth noting that the other 11 competitors are kept hidden by the company as surprise entrants. Here are the confirmed competitors.

Interestingly, Brock Lesnar confirmed his participation in the Rumble on the latest edition of SmackDown after taking out Bobby Lashley. It will be interesting to see both men locking horns in Rumble.
