This trend will continue until all 30 Superstars have entered the match. Elimination occurs when a Superstar is tossed over the top rope and both feet touch the floor. The last competitor remaining in the ring will be declared the winner and they will earn a shot at either the WWE Championship or the WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania.

In the WWE Universal Title match between champion Kevin Owens and challenger Roman Reigns, United States Champion Chris Jericho will be locked in a shark cage that will be suspended high above the ring for the duration of the match. In addition, the WWE Universal Title match will have no disqualifications.

The two-hour Royal Rumble Kickoff will air exclusively on the WWE Network starting two hours before the pay-per-view at 5/4c. The Kickoff will feature analysis from the Kickoff Panel which will consist of Renee Young, Paul Rosenburg, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, and special guests WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler and WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels. The Kickoff will also feature the match for the RAW Tag Team Titles as well as the match between Sasha Banks and Nia Jax and the 6-Woman Tag pitting Becky Lynch, Naomi, & Nikki Bella against SmackDown Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss, Mickie James, & Natalya.
