Welcome, everyone, to the Bleacher Report live coverage of WWE's annual Royal Rumble pay-per-view event.

This year's show emanates from the US Airways Center in Phoenix, AZ.

We have a total of five matches set to take place, but with WWE you never know if they will add something on the fly, should they find themselves ahead of schedule.

The pre-show will feature Antonio Cesaro defending his US title against Miz. These two have been going back and forth for weeks, and this time we will finally see them go head to head.

Team Hell No will be defending their Tag titles against Rhodes Scholars in a match that could easily go either way.

Alberto Del Rio is defending his World title against former champion Big Show in a Last Man Standing match that is sure to be as brutal as their first LMS match on SmackDown.

Arguably, the most anticipated bout will be CM Punk defending his WWE title against The Rock in a match that has a stipulation of CM Punk losing the title if The Shield interfere.

The main attraction to this event, though, will be the 30-man over-the-top rope battle royal which sees the winner get a title shot of his choosing at WrestleMania.

WWE has been building to this event for weeks and Sunday night will be the payoff.

Who will go home the Rumble winner?

Will The Rock keep his promise and become WWE champion or will CM Punk extend his already epic title reign?

Can The Shield resist getting involved?

Make sure to bookmark this page and come back Sunday night at 7:30 PM Eastern for the start or the pre-show for all you Royal Rumble coverage needs.
