Roman Reigns, Rusev, Ricochet, Ali & Shorty G (Chad Gable) are on Team Hogan, while Randy Orton, King Corbin, Bobby Lashley & Shinsuke Nakamura have been announced for Team Flair.

The final member of Team Flair has yet to be revealed.

Hogan and Flair are the coaches of their teams but won't be wrestling in the match.
