Tag Team title match added to WWE Royal Rumble card


With less than three weeks before the pay-per-view, there are now six matches announced for the Royal Rumble.

Seth Rollins & Jason Jordan defending their Tag Team titles against Cesaro & Sheamus was officially added to the card during a backstage segment on Raw last night. Cesaro & Sheamus lobbied for their rematch and accused Kurt Angle of favoring Jordan, but Angle made the title match official for the PPV.

Rollins & Jordan started teaming together after Dean Ambrose was forced out of action due to a legitimate triceps injury. They won the titles from Cesaro & Sheamus on the Christmas Day episode of Raw.

Cesaro & Sheamus lost to Titus O'Neil & Apollo Crews on Raw last night when O'Neil pinned Sheamus with a roll-up. Rollins, Jordan & Roman Reigns lost to Finn Balor, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson in the main event, with Rollins being pinned by Balor and Jordan accidentally messing things up for his team during the match.

The Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia will host the Royal Rumble on January 28th. Here's the updated card for the PPV:

  • 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
  • The finals of the United States Championship tournament
  • Raw Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Jason Jordan defending against Cesaro & Sheamus
