The start of a new year means new opportunities for the WWE roster, and there’s none bigger than the Royal Rumble Match. WWE’s annual over-the-top rope extravaganza is rapidly approaching, which means 30 Superstars will soon be battling it out to earn a WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match on The Grandest Stage of Them All — WrestleMania 31.
The rules of the Royal Rumble Match are simple. Two Superstars will begin the match, with a new combatant entering the fray every 90 seconds. The only way a competitor can be eliminated is to be thrown over the top rope and have both feet touch the arena floor. The match’s unique rules often force Superstars to use every fiber in their being to hang on to the ropes and remain in the bout, or come up with creative, sometimes gravity-defying ways of avoiding the ground.
Who will leave Philadelphia with the ultimate prize? Whose Road to WrestleMania 31 will begin on the highest note? Find out at the 2015 Royal Rumble, airing live Sunday, Jan. 25, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on WWE Network and pay-per-view!
