With the Royal Rumble a few weeks away, we’re sure to see more superstars, both men and women, toss their hat into the ring. Tonight at a WWE Live Event in Fort Myers, Florida, Bobby Lashley was added to that list. Bobby Lashley announces he is in the Royal Rumble.
Up to today, the men’s Rumble match featured six known superstars. A few days ago, Finn Balorrevealed on Twitter that he was taking part in the Royal Rumble, and hoped to one-up himself from last year’s nearly hour-long performance.
On the SmackDown side, the New Day revealed that they would be taking part in the Rumble on the Christmas edition of SD Live. R-Truth also punched his ticket to the #30 spot in the match, thanks to his and Carmella’s underdog run in the latter half of the Mixed Match Challenge.
Prior to Balor, the only other Raw Superstar to announce his intentions for the Rumble was Drew McIntyre. However, now another enemy of Balor’s has just joined the match.
The WWE shared a video on Twitter from their Live Event in Fort Myers, Florida, showing Bobby Lashley beating down Apollo Crews.
After that, Lashley left the ring to talk smack to the camera and revealed that he was also entering this year’s Royal Rumble match. “Everybody knows what I’m capable of doing,” said Lashley. “Call me Mr. Potential. Call me unstoppable. But this year, call me the Main Event! I’m in the Rumble, baby!”
