WWE have announced more names for this Sunday's Royal Rumble match, now making the current total 21.

Last night's Smackdown tapings saw Daniel Bryan retain his spot when he defeated Kane in a match that could have seen him lose his place and the taping ended in the traditional way with a mass brawl.

As well as Bryan earning his spot, Dolph Ziggler, Erick Rowan and Ryback were welcomed back to the WWE roster and all were given the opportunity to be placed into the 30-man-battle royal. 

Dolph secured his place with a win over Bad News Barrett, whilst Ryback got the count-out win over Rusev but Rowan failed to win his match with former team mate Luke Harper and so was not allowed entrance to the Rumble match. 

Instead the superstars added to the match include Jimmy and Jey Uso, presumably to continue their feud with Miz and Mizdow who have already confirmed their place.

Fernando and Diego of Los Matadores after missing out last year when El Torito took part instead. Fandango, after what seems like a while away from WWE TV, despite his new gimmick, the dancing superstar could be given a chance to open up a new feud at this Sunday's event.

Justin Gabriel is a surprise entrant as well, usually WWE calls upon superstars this time of year to make up the numbers, but Gabriel hasn't been seen for a long time and usually when he is on live TV he is there in a jobber role, hopefully this will be his chance to step up. 

R-Truth was announced as an entrant after Raw on Monday night and these all now join Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt, Goldust, Stardust, Rusev, Big Show, Bad News Barrett, Kane, Damien Mizdow and The Miz in the match with the opportunity to main event Wrestlemania. 

This means there are still nine places available for any surprise entrants or returns with the likes of Bo Dallas, Randy Orton, Sheamus and Diamond Dallas Page already rumoured to be in attendance in Philadelphia.
