WWE has confirmed through a press release that Roman Reigns will participate in the Men’s Royal Battle to be held at Royal Rumble this Sunday. The news has been broadcast by WWE on social networks in the last minutes.
With the announcement of Roman Reigns, 18 participants who will be in the Royal Battle are confirmed. Here’s the updated list: Elias, Randy Orton, Shinsuke Nakamura, John Cena, Finn Bálor, Baron Corbin, Bray Wyatt, Matt Hardy, Aiden English, Rusev, The Miz, Titus O’Neil, Apollo Crews, Tye Dillinger, Big E, Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods, Roman Reigns and 12 participants to be announced.
Last Monday, Roman Reigns lost the Intercontinental Championship against The Miz, on the 25th anniversary of Monday Night Raw. It is rumored that this move was made to sell his intention to go for the Universal championship and face Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 34.
It should be noted that the announcement comes at a delicate time for the superstar of Raw. Roman Reigns has accused a few days ago of buying steroids by drug dealer Richard Rodriguez, who is currently in prison and was interviewed on a television program. In that interview, Rodriguez pointed to Roman Reigns as one of his regular buyers. On this day we reported that the same person has reported that he has evidence in his possession that could confirm this fact.
