Brock Lesnar Claims First Entry In The 2020 Royal Rumble

We now know what Brock Lesnar’s role at the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view event will be. 

WWE kicked off Monday’s episode of RAW in Oklahoma City, OK at the Chesapeake Energy Arena on the USA Network with a promo by Paul Heyman alongside the WWE Champion in the ring.

Heyman cut a promo about how Lesnar has done several historic things in his career but at the Royal Rumble, he will do something unprecedented. This is where Heyman announced that Lesnar won’t be defending the WWE Championship at this show. 

Instead, “The Beast” will be competing in the actual Royal Rumble Match. Heyman also revealed that Lesnar will be starting out the match as the first entrant. 

Heyman ended his promo by saying that Lesnar will be the first and last man in the match and that’s a spoiler, according to the humble advocate. 

Brock Lesnar’s Royal Rumble Role

Lesnar joins Roman Reigns, Elias, Braun Strowman, and Cesaro as competitors thus far confirmed competing in this 30-man contest. 

“The Beast” won this contest back in 2003 at the Fleet Center in Boston by last eliminating The Undertaker. The last time that he worked the Royal Rumble Match was in 2017 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas where he entered at #26 but was eliminated by Goldberg. 

WWE presents the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event on Sunday, January 26, 2020 Houston, Texas at the Minute Maid Park and airs on the WWE Network. 

WWE will be announcing more matches for this show in the coming weeks including competitors for both the men’s and women’s Royal Rumble matches

What are your thoughts on Brock Lesnar not defending the WWE Title but rather competing in the Royal Rumble Match?
