There will be a Fan Fest tournament of NXT wrestlers where the winner will be in the Royal Rumble. This takes the place of the original pre-show match, which was to be some sort of a multiple person match where the winner was to be a late addition to the Rumble. That match would have featured both NXT wrestlers and wrestlers on the roster. That was changed in favor of adding Antonio Cesaro vs. The Miz.
