#1 30 superstars enter the Royal Rumble
The general number of participants that the WWE allows in the Royal Rumble is 30. Even though they have increased this number in the recent past, the number for 2017 is 30 entrants only.
Each entrant comes to the ring based on the number allocated and must be the last main standing, which is the basic objective of the rumble.
This is one of WWE’s most gruelling matches because you have opponents approaching you continuously in a gauntlet setup and there is absolutely no time to take a breather. Each Superstar has to outdo 29 other compatriots to come out on top.
