2018 Royal Rumble Start Time, Card, and Complete List of Entrants

If each year of WWE were a book, the Royal Rumble would mark the beginning of the final chapters. So to get to get you prepped, we've collected all of the pertinent information you need to have a good Royal Rumble experience.

Royal Rumble Date and Start Time:

Sunday, January 28th. The Kickoff Show begins at 7 p.m. ET with the main card starting at 8 p.m. ET.

Men's Royal Rumble Roster

So far, only 17 male WWE Superstars have been announced for Sunday's Rumble. That leaves an eyebrow-raising 13 names yet to be discovered. This high degree of uncertainty will have us all anxiously awaiting every new entrant.

Randy Orton

Shinsuke Nakamura

The Miz


Baron Corbin
