Other 2024 WWE Royal Rumble Matches on the Card

Although the two rumble matches will be very interesting, they aren't the only thing planned for that eventful Saturday night. There will be two more matches according to the latest WWE Royal Rumble rumors. They were officially announced too, so here they are:

United States Championship

Logan Paul will defend his United States championship against Kevin Owens. Paul first won the title in November at Crown Jewel and announced how his first opponent will be chosen. The contender for the title match had to emerge victorious in a single elimination tournament on SmackDown. Owens went up against Carmelo Hayes, Austin Theory, and Santos Escobar to get a chance at the title on Saturday. Other superstars who participated in the elimination tournament were Dragon Lee, Bobby Lashley, Karrion Kross, and Greyson Waller.

Undisputed WWE Universal Championship

Back on the New Year's Revolution episode of SmackDown there was supposed to be a triple threat match. The winner was going to wrestle the current universal champion – Roman Reigns – at the Royal Rumble. Things didn't go as planned and the Bloodline sabotaged the match by attacking the contenders. Orton, Knight, and Styles will still get their chance because they will face Reigns in a fatal four-way match.
