The WWE has announced additional names for the 50-man Royal Rumble on Friday, April 27th in Saudi Arabia.

On Tuesday, the company announced that Chris Jericho, Kurt Angle, Baron Corbin, New Day, Shelton Benjamin, Chad Gable, Apollo, Elias, Goldust, Titus O’Neil, Dolph Ziggler, Mojo Rawley, and Sin Cara have been added to the battle royal.

Here is the updated card for the event, which will stream live on April 27th at Noon Eastern on the WWE Network:
*Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns in a steel cage match for the Universal title
*John Cena vs. Triple H
*Seth Rollins vs. The Miz vs. Finn Balor vs. Samoa Joe in a ladder match for the Intercontinental title
*Sheamus & Cesaro vs. Matt Hardy & Bray Wyatt OR The Revival for the vacant Raw tag titles
*50-man Royal Rumble

Any details on whether this is a one off appearance for Jericho in the WWE? He’s stated that his deal with New Japan was just the one match and that nothing was coming from the Naito stuff… but he loves to work his audience so I never take the man at his word, so that he keeps showing up in WWE is very interesting to me.
