— A graphic aired on RAW for the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view that showed Curtis Axel, Zack Ryder and The Uso Brothers as participants in the 30-Man Royal Rumble match.
— As announced on this week’s WWE RAW broadcast, Bray Wyatt vs. Daniel Bryan is confirmed for this Sunday night’s WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view. We noted right before RAW went on the air that Daniel Bryan was cleared to compete after suffering a concussion at RAW last week. Bryan underwent more testing before RAW on Monday and was apparently cleared. For what it’s worth, there are some who are questioning this and if they are bringing him back early because of the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Some don’t believe he’s passed all of his tests as the concussion was said to have been a very serious one. Nonetheless, they are putting him in the ring on Sunday night.
— Following the January 20th edition of WWE RAW, the following Superstars have been announced as official entrants in this year’s 30-Superstar Royal Rumble Match:
