Breaking News: Royal Rumble To Have 40 Superstars

Alex RobinsonContributor IIOctober 25, 2016

Recently published by the WWE is that this months Royal Rumble match will have 40 participants rather than the usual 30.

This source comes from the WWE's facebook page.

The last time there was a different number than 30 superstars was in fact the first Royal Rumble won by Hacksaw Jim Duggan, which featured 20.

What does this mean? A longer match? More commotion? Superstars returning? I for one can't wait to find out.

Where can I comment?
