With WWE’s Royal Rumble show taking place at the end of January, the promotion is gearing up for their annual event by announcing new entrants for both the male and female over-the-top-rope Rumbles.
Last night, two new competitors officially entered the men’s Rumble match: Mustafa Ali, and the legend Rey Mysterio.
The official WWE Twitter account wrote the following, regarding Mysterio’s involvement:
