Huge Name Advertised For WWE Royal Rumble 2022

Guess who's already being advertised for WWE Royal Rumble 2022 in January?

Brock Lesnar Royal Rumble

Brock Lesnar is currently amongst the names being advertised for Royal Rumble 2022.

The current Universal Title contender features alongside Roman Reigns, SmackDown Women's Champion Becky Lynch, WWE Champion Big E, Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley, and more on the WWE.com event listing.

This isn't necessarily a guarantee that Lesnar will be in the house, however, as the card is always subject to change in WWE and a lot can change between now and late January. But that Lesnar is currently contracted to work around eight matches on the 18-month contract he signed with WWE in August (and is still expected to work a part-time schedule) makes this notable.

As announced on 27 September, Royal Rumble 2022 goes down in St. Louis, Missouri's The Dome on Saturday 29 January. By the last count, 14,639 tickets remained for what will be WWE's second pay-per-view of the year after WWE Day 1 on 1 January.

Lesnar is billed to challenge for Reigns' Universal Title at Crown Jewel 2021 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia this Thursday (31 October), having returned to the company after 16 months as a free agent at SummerSlam 2021.
