It got worse for Reigns on RAW tonight as the draw was made to find out just who will enter the Rumble at the most unwanted spot ever - number one.

It is not impossible to win the Rumble from the number one slot, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels was the first man to accomplish that feat, but it is difficult to do.

Now it looks like Roman Reigns will have to become the third man in WWE history to win the Rumble match from the number one spot if he wants to regain his title.

Stephanie and Mr McMahon came out to the stage to draw the name of the first man to enter the Royal Rumble and they would actually draw out Reigns' name three times before it was officially confirmed.

The match has been labelled as 'One versus All' and it now seems that the odds have been stacked higher than ever before for Reigns.

The wildcards

While it will be tough enough for Reigns to win the Royal Rumble from the number one slot, there are still a couple of wildcards in the match.

The biggest wildcard is without doubt the entry of Brock Lesnar in the match; The former Royal Rumble winner is currently a strong favourite to win the whole thing.

Triple H, Kevin Owens, Bray Wyatt and the entire League of Nations are all seen as possible winners and will surely make the match much more more exciting.
