The original plan for the Royal Rumble was to have Dean Ambrose eliminate AJ Styles during the Royal Rumble match. It was later changed to have Kevin Owens eliminate Styles.
As previously reported, WWE has a live event scheduled for Atlantic City on March 12, the same night as the scheduled WWE Network live special that’s being held in Toronto with Roman Reigns v. Sheamus and Brock Lesnar vs. Luke Harper. So WWE will have a split crew working that night for both shows.
Talent that is being advertised for the Atlantic City event includes Dean Ambrose, Kevin Owens, Big Show, Bray Wyatt, The Dudley Boyz, Braun Strowman, Kane, Rusev, Ryback, Kalisto, Alberto Del Rio, Erick Rowan, Charlotte and Becky Lynch.
