The Royal Rumble isn't far away now, so the WWE is adding the final matches to the card to make it an exciting event to watch, hopefully.

So far, we know the following matches will take place at the pay-per-view; Dean Ambrose will defend his Intercontinental Championship against Kevin Owens, and, of course, the 30-man Royal Rumble.

Raw this week announced the rest of the WWE titles have been put on the line at the event.

The Usos will challenge The New Day for the Tag Team Championships, Charlotte will defend her Divas Championship against Becky Lynch, and Kalisto will have another chance for the United States Championship when he faces Kalisto.

The Usos achieved a title shot after defeating the current champions on Raw last week, but it is unlikely The New Day will lose the tag titles because they're one of the hottest items in the WWE right now, and it would be disastrous for the company to give them a loss right now.

The Usos aren't the same team they were a few years ago, especially since the team had a hiatus due to injury, so they're not worthy for the tag team titles right now.

Kalisto gets a chance to regain the title he lost to Del Rio last week on SmackDown, which isn't surprising, as Kalisto could become to the WWE what Rey Mysterio was a few years back. He brings the connection to the latino fans and his high-flying wrestling style is an appeal to all.

His feud with Del Rio should spread all the way to WrestleMania as he is the perfect heel for The Lucha Dragons member to contend with. We want to believe Kalisto can win it again, but we've already seen it happen, so fewer people will care if he does or not. This feels like a standard rubber match which is a shame. Del Rio will likely retain.

As for the Divas Championship, Lynch issued a challenge for Charlotte, which her father Ric Flair accepted on her behalf. Becky did previously have a Divas title match recently and caused Charlotte to tap out, but the champ was able to retain thanks to the help of her dad distracting the referee at the time.

Lynch has the WWE Universe on her side in this one. Flair is likely to get involved again to help out her daughter, which will likely backfire as it has worked too many times in the past before, so Becky could walk out as the new Divas Champion.
