WWE officially announced at last night’s SmackDown tapings in Philadelphia that the 2015 Royal Rumble will be getting an upgrade. WWE announced that the show will feature forty men instead of the usual thirty.
This is only the second time in history that the match has had this many competitors; the last time was 2011 when Alberto Del Rio won.
The Rumble will take place on January 25th. Tickets go on sale this Friday but apparently they were available to fans at last night’s tapings.
