Enzo Amore vs. Cedric Alexander official for WWE Royal Rumble


As we head into the last two weeks of build on television, there are now eight matches announced for the Royal Rumble.

Enzo Amore defending his Cruiserweight Championship against Cedric Alexander is the latest match to officially be added to the pay-per-view's card. To set things up for the Rumble, Alexander challenged for the title and defeated Amore by countout on this past Monday's episode of Raw.

Amore was counted out on Raw due to a storyline leg injury, but he was legitimately busted open hardway by a kick from Alexander during the match and needed to get four stitches after.

The updated card for the Royal Rumble is listed below. The PPV will take place at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on January 28th:

  • Men's Royal Rumble match
  • Women's Royal Rumble match
  • Universal Champion Brock Lesnar defending against Braun Strowman and Kane in a triple threat match
  • WWE Champion AJ Styles defending against Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn in a handicap match
