WWE will head to St Louis on January 29 for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view, where the WrestleMania plans begin to take shape.

With 30 people in the men’s match, and another 30 in the women’s match, it can often be hard to keep tabs on who has declared their entry into their respective bouts.

So we’ve decided to compile a complete list of every WWE Superstar, at the time of wrestling, who has confirmed their entry into the men’s and women’s matches.

The lists, which you can check out below, are accurate as of January 18 at 3:30pm GMT.

For the women, the 30 participants who are yet to be announced will be fighting for the chance to face SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair or Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch.
