WWE Royal Rumble 2022: Roman Reigns’ challenger and Hall of Famers announced

This
sets
up
an
interesting
lineup
as
the
top
champion
from
Smackdown
will
be
challenged
by
a
Raw
Superstar
in
a
co-branded
match.

The
announcement
also
confirms
the
recent
speculations
that
WWE
has
been
nurturing
names
from
the
red
brand
as
there’s
a
scarcity
of
credible
challengers
for
Roman
Reigns
on
the
blue
brand.

Over
on
this
week’s
Smackdown,
WWE
Official
Adam
Pearce
revealed
that
he
had
to
pick
the
next
challenger
for
Reigns.
The
final
segment
of
the
show
then
saw
Seth
Rollins
knock
on
Reigns’
locker
room
and
share
a
brief
staredown
with
his
former
Shield
brethren.

Reigns
expressed
frustration
over
Pearce’s
pick
to
send
the
show
off-air
as
it
was
indicated
that
the
two
former
stablemates
will
collide
for
the
Universal
Title
at
the
Rumble!

Speaking
of
the
PPV,
19
participants
for
the
2022
30-Woman
Royal
Rumble
Match
were
also
announced
on
Smackdown.
A
number
of
former
stars
were
added
to
the
match
as
the
current
roster
doesn’t
have
the
strength
to
fill
up
the
30
slots.

During
last
night’s
show
on
FOX,
SmackDown
Women’s
Champion
Charlotte
Flair
announced
that
she
will
enter
the
Women’s
Rumble
Match,
win
the
bout,
and
will
then
go
on
to
WrestleMania
38
to
pick
her
own
challenger.

A
video
package
also
aired
to
announce
the
other
18
participants
of
the
match
which
includes
the
current
Impact
Wrestling
Knockouts
Champion
Mickie
James,
who
is
slated
for
a
title
defense
against
Deonna
Purrazzo
on
tonight’s
Hard
To
Kill
pay-per-view.

Former
champions
like
WWE
Hall
of
Famers
Nikki
Bella,

Bella,
