The WWE announced on their Twitter account today that the Royal Rumble Kickoff show will feature a Fatal 4-Way match which will give the winners a spot in the Royal Rumble and a chance to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

The participants for the match are Darren Young & Damien Sandow vs. The Dudley Boyz vs. The Ascension vs. Mark Henry & Jack Swagger. Not too much to get excited about.

Nevertheless, this should be an entertaining way to start off the show, as former World Champions and Tag Team Champions will be in the ring. Two things about this clash are for certain, The Ascension won't be winning this one, and none of the individuals will be winning the WWE Championship in the rumble.

As for a potential winner in this match, The Dudley Boyz are entering as the strongest team, as they haven't just been thrown together, but the winners might actually be Henry and Swagger. They have recently been winning together as a team during Main Event tapings, so this could be the start of a nice team forming. Maybe.

Alongside the rumors that Henry is retiring at this year's WrestleMania, WWE should allow him to bow out in style with a couple of wins under his belt.
