On the latest episode of SmackDown, Superstar Bayley and Bianca Belair added to the hype by announcing their participation in the Women’s Royal Rumble! The two have the same intention on their mind- winning the SmackDown Women’s Championship from Sasha Banks. Bayley probably wants it a lot more following her successive losses to Banks.

Apart from them, former Mr. Money in the Bank Otis announced his entry into the men’s Royal Rumble. The Superstar was seen training along with his friend Gable by holding on to a bar, practicing his “holding on to the rope” skills.

These were only the latest set of entry announcements. On Raw this week, 6 Superstars revealed that they would be in the match. From the Women’s Division, Charlotte Flair and Nia Jax threw in their swords. 

Charlotte Flair is already the Women’s Tag Team Champion along with Asuka. This means that the only belt for her to take if she wins is her own partner’s. Clearly, there is something sinister afoot in her mind. 

If Nia Jax wins, she may also focus on Asuka, since it is the only title in her sights. Although, we still have to see who else makes the big reveal on the next episodes of Raw and SmackDown. 

Randy Orton and AJ Styles have their eyes on Drew McIntyre

From the men’s division, Daniel Bryan, Randy Orton, Bobby Lashley, and AJ Styles all announced their entry into the Royal Rumble match.

Daniel Bryan is obviously looking at Roman Reigns in the long run but could also focus on WWE United States Champion Bobby Lashley, who is also taking part in the same event. There is also the coveted Intercontinental Championship around the shoulders of Big E.

Randy Orton and AJ Styles will undoubtedly look towards Drew McIntyre. The two have been working their way through the Raw roster and will surely want to dance with the Scotsman come WrestleMania.
