WWE Spoilers: First Two Royal Rumble Match Participants Announced

wwe-batista-2

As announced on last night’s RAW, two former World Champions have been confirmed to be a part of the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match on January 26 at the Royal Rumble event in Pittsburgh as “The Animal” Batista will make his in-ring return to the WWE in the Rumble Match(six nights after he makes his return to the WWE on January 20). Later the same night, Alberto Del Rio also threw his name into the ring for the Royal Rumble Match. Both Batista and Alberto Del Rio are former Royal Rumble Match winners as Batista won the 30-Man extravaganza in 2005, going on to win his first of many World Titles at WrestleMania 21 that year, where he defeated Triple H for the World Heavyweight Championship. Del Rio won the biggest Royal Rumble Match in history, a special 40-Man edition, in 2011, but Del Rio was not as successful as Batista as Del Rio lost to Edge in a match (Edge’s final match) for the World Heavyweight Title at WrestleMania 27.

Who do you think will win this year’s Royal Rumble Match? Post your comments in the box below.
