Bill Goldberg will not be the only part-time wrestler who will be competing in the 2017 Royal Rumble match as Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that former WWE Champion Brock Lesnar will also be competing in the match. Keep in mind that plans can always change in WWE but Lesnar being in the match is the current plan.
Goldberg noted in his promo on RAW that he has one more title run in him and with WWE planning to have a trilogy match between Lesnar and Goldberg in the near future, it’s likely that WWE will do an angle in the Royal Rumble match with the two WWE Superstars to set up a third match. It’s looking like their final match will take place at WrestleMania in Orlando.
The WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view event goes down on Sunday, January 27th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, TX. Both brands will be featured on the card for this event and will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets. WWE is loading up the show due to them needing to fill up the 60,000+ capacity Alamodome.
