The 2017 WWE Royal Rumble poster has been released and some fans are not happy with some of the names that were pushed to the back in favor of John Cena, The Undertaker, Goldberg and Brock Lesnar. The main complaint is that the two champions from each brand were pushed to the back in favor of part-timers. As you can see below, WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens is seen in between Goldberg and Brock Lesnar but you have to squint to see WWE Champion AJ Styles all the way in the back of the poster in between Sasha Banks and Rich Swann.
I guess the idea was to feature the “marquee” names on the front but, as you can see in the tweets below, that did not sit well with some fans. Scroll down to see the tweets and the poster and feel free to leave your comments at the bottom of this post.
Just caught a look at the Royal Rumble poster, wtf is that? Glorified part timers at the front, Aj Styles at the back. Sums up WWE values.

AJ Styles is the best worker at WWE right now. Why is he just in the background of the Royal Rumble's poster?

Shouldn't AJ Styles be in the front of the Royal Rumble poster? He made his debut in 2016&few months later, he became champion? Just saying.
