Royal Rumble Kickoff just became truly glorious, as newly-crowned United States Champion Boddy Roode will aim to prove himself a fighting champion from the get-go by defending his illustrious red, white and blue title in an Open Challenge. Who will emerge to face him? Will the reigning titleholder be able to best an unknown threat? Or will we see a new U.S. Champion before the Rumble even begins?

In addition, a Raw tag team match will also take place as Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson will take on The Revival. This likely stems from an angle this past Monday night at the Manhattan Center where the Revival were laid out by DX, Scott Hall and the Balor Club.

Cruiserweight six man action will round out the card. Kalisto, Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik will team up to take on TJP, Drew Gulak and Gentleman Jack Gallagher.

Panelists for the pre-show will include Raw Women's champion Alexa Bliss, Smackdown Women's champion Charlotte Flair, Alundra Blayze and Ric Flair.

The Royal Rumble pre-show kickoff starts Sunday at 5 p.m. Eastern/ 2 p.m. Pacific.
