It is often seen as the biggest WWE event behind WrestleMania, but it seems for many wrestling fans, this year's Royal Rumble event is not something to look forward to.
Fans were outraged following the event in January last year when Daniel Bryan had a very short spell in the 30-man match and Roman Reigns was welcomed to a chorus of boos, after being crowned the eventual winner.
Even with 2016's big night just 11 days away, WWE are yet to announce several of the matches on the card for the night, which could well be a defining factor in relation to its lack in ticket sales, on the secondary market, for the event.

The Royal Rumble match itself has been announced as being for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship but despite this, fans appear to have the disappointment of last year fully on their minds.
As Forbes have reported, 2016 has so far seen tickets for the Royal Rumble hit a four-year low on the secondary market. The current average ticket price in this field is $223.61, which at first may seem a lot, but is little when compared to the $419.65 average for the same event in 2014.
WWE has promoted this event well so far, and those in charge of the company will be more aware than anyone that this is the prime opportunity for them to leave 2015 in the past and get 2016 off to a great start for both talent and fans.
The ever-entertaining Brock Lesnar has been confirmed as an entrant into the 30-man Title match on January 24th at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.
As well as The Beast, all four members of the Wyatt Family in Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, Erick Rowan and Braun Strowman have been announced as participants in the match, as well as returning legend of the company; Chris Jericho.
Many members of the WWE Universe will be hoping that the company learns from its mistakes of last year as they rarely have an occasion which presents them with so many possible outcomes; as with the Royal Rumble match.
There is a strong chance that Brock Lesnar's involvement could see him make it all the way in the bout, and ultimately see him facing current WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 32 in April of this year.
Given the hype which surrounds the whole pay-per-view event, followers of WWE will be expecting several surprises on the night, with Finn Balor's famous Bullet Club members seeming a likely option to receive a huge pop should they appear.
Alternatively, the company is known as being one which relies heavily on familiar faces from the past, meaning there could be a number of WWE Hall Of Famers who have their music hit during the Royal Rumble match.
One final option which should not be ruled out for this highly-anticipated match, is that of Triple H's involvement, as fans would surely welcome the idea of him facing Roman Reigns in an incredible Title match at WrestleMania 32.
