This brings more clarity to the expected participants in the 30-man royal rumble with many of the biggest stars on both programs in the match. The format for the event is said to be 15 wrestlers from each show with the winner getting a title shot at WrestleMania 33 for the top title of their respective program. There could also be a couple of surprises featured in the match with some wrestlers from the past.
As for the format of the entire event, the WWE has switched it up each year. This could just be the 30-man royal rumble or it could also feature a title match or two ahead of it. There are still many details that have yet to be revealed.
