AJ Styles confirms Royal Rumble spot
AJ Styles is now official for the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match.
As seen in the video below, Styles took to Twitter today and announced his Men’s Royal Rumble spot. Styles said he’s done everything in WWE except win The Rumble, so that’s why he’s declaring his spot.
Styles is currently feuding with former partner Omos on RAW, but lost a singles match to the big man last week. He is also feuding with Grayson Waller in WWE NXT. Styles made his WWE debut in the 2016 Royal Rumble Match, but has not won a Rumble yet.
There are now 21 open spots for the 2022 Men’s Rumble. Styles joins WWE United States Champion Damian Priest, Austin Theory, Rey Mysterio, Dominik Mysterio, Montez Ford, Angelo Dawkins, Sheamus, and Jackass star Johnny Knoxville as confirmed entrants.
