Randy Orton declares for 2021 WWE men's Royal Rumble match

Randy Orton is the latest person to declare themselves for the Royal Rumble match.

During tonight’s episode of Raw, Orton confronted a number of WWE legends, including Mark Henry. He told Henry that he would be competing in the match. He eventually threatened Henry and told him to leave, which he did.

Orton spent most of tonight’s Raw confronting legends of the past, including Big Show and Ric Flair. This follows the events of last week, when Alexa Bliss told Orton to burn her alive like he did with The Fiend Bray Wyatt, who Orton burned at TLC. Orton admitted tonight on Raw during an interview that he did not burn Alexa, and hated himself for that. He said he would take out his frustrations on the legends.

Orton has previously won the Royal Rumble match twice, first in 2009 and later in 2017.

Others who have announced their entry for the men’s Royal Rumble match include Daniel Bryan, Bobby Lashley, and AJ Styles. Nia Jax and Charlotte Flair have announced themselves for the women’s Royal Rumble match.

This year’s Royal Rumble will take place on Sunday, January 31.
