WWE announces Reigns as the first official entrant in the 2015 Royal Rumble match that will be held at the pay-per-view of the same name. The event is being held on January 25th of 2015 in Philadelphia, PA. The announcement reads:
One Superstar has already thrown his name into the ring for the 2015 Royal Rumble Match — Roman Reigns, the runner-up in last year’s melee. The 2014 Slammy Award winner for Superstar of the Year put in an unbelievable performance last January, tossing a record-breaking 12 Superstars from the Rumble before being eliminated by the winner, Batista.
