• Karl Anderson Takes A Dig At WWE’s Royal Rumble Match
WWE reveals majority of the wrestlers who participate in the Royal Rumble matches before they take place. This has become a traditional thing over the past couple of years.
In the past, most of the entrants weren’t revealed, but wrestlers can now just “declare” themselves for the match.
Former WWE Head Writer Brian Gewirtz found this confusing and asked about it on Twitter during last night’s RAW.
“Haven’t seen Raw in a while. You can “declare” yourself to be in the Royal Rumble? Is there a reason why everybody doesn’t do this immediately? What about surprise legends? Are there multiple Doinks declaring themselves in the Rumble right now? Which Doink gets priority?!”
IMPACT Wrestling Tag Team Champion Karl Anderson used this opportunity to take a dig at WWE’s way of booking things, and jokingly declared The Good Brothers for the Men’s Royal Rumble match.
“Be careful Brian, as you know and I’ve seen with humans there, you’ll drive yourself insane…..
But with your logic, here we go, #GoodBrothers declare ourselves in the rumble! @IMPACTWRESTLING @AEW”

• WWF Attitude Era Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
WWF Attitude Era Veteran K-Kwik, now better known as PG-Era WWE Superstar R-Truth (Real name: Ron Killings), celebrates his 49th birthday today.
K-Kwik wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) from November 2000 to late 2001, then went to the newly founded Total Nonstop Action (TNA, now known as iMPACT Wrestling) as Ron “The Truth” Killings, where he became the first black NWA World Heavyweight Champion, before returning to the now renamed WWE in 2008 as R-Truth.
He’s now the record title holder of the WWE 24/7 Championship, a PG-version successor of the old WWF Hardcore Championship.
