30 WWE superstars will fight on January 28 at the Royal Rumble for a starting job at Wrestlemania 34.
WWE broadcasted the first promotional video of Royal Rumble, the first major event of 2018, held last night at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA on January 28, 2018. This promotion was issued during the Clash of Champions celebration, and you can see it with the above video.
Meanwhile, the Royal Rumble has been confirmed to consist of 30 superstars fighting to win the starting job at WrestleMania 34. In recent years, there was a talk about the possibility of introducing 40 wrestlers, as happened in 2011, WWE abandoned this idea. So far, it has not been confirmed whether women can participate or whether there is a female version.
Although the period of the kick-off show has not been confirmed, it can be confirmed that the Royal Rumble lasts for 4 hours. Keep in mind that NXT Takeover event will be held on Saturday in Philadelphia, so it will be a full weekend with WWE actions.
