WWE United States Champion Damian Priest is now official for the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match.
As seen in the video below, Priest took to Twitter this afternoon to announce that he’s entering The Rumble, and plans to leave WrestleMania 38 as a dual champion.
Priest, who retained his title over Robert Roode on the December 6 RAW and over Dolph Ziggler on last week’s RAW, made his official main roster debut in the 2021 30-Man Rumble Match. He entered that match at #14, and picked up 4 eliminations before being tossed out at #16 by Bobby Lashley.
There are now 22 open spots for the 2022 Men’s Rumble. Priest joins Austin Theory, Rey Mysterio, Dominik Mysterio, Montez Ford, Angelo Dawkins, Sheamus, and Jackass star Johnny Knoxville as confirmed entrants.
The 2022 WWE Royal Rumble is scheduled to take place on January 29 from The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis, Missouri.
