Finn Balor and Kalisto have been removed from the men’s Royal Rumble match. The reason for that is due to Kalisto competing in the WWE Cruiserweight Title Fatal 4-Way Match with Buddy Murphy, Akira Tozawa and Hideo Itami while Balor will challenge WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble event.
Also, Sasha Banks has been removed from the Women’s Royal Rumble match due to her challenging Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey at this show.
The Royal Rumble pay-per-view event takes place on Sunday, January 27, 2019 in Phoenix, Arizona at Chase Field and will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets.
