Royal Rumble 2024 is just around the corner and the WWE universe is waiting to see who comes out on top. Vince McMahon’s troubles have been the talk of the wrestling world ahead of the first Premium Live Event of the year.

This is one of the big three titles that will not be defended with only Roman Reigns set to defend his belt during the event.
