Elias and Mustafa Ali are now official for the WWE Royal Rumble.

Elias noted during RAW Talk that he will be entering the Men’s Rumble Match. Jaxson Ryker indicated that he also may be a participant, but that was not confirmed.

Ali confirmed his Rumble Match spot during Monday’s Royal Rumble go-home edition of RAW. After Xavier Woods picked up a singles win over Slapjack, RETRIBUTION attacked Woods to continue their feud with The New Day. Ali then delivered another warning to Kofi Kingston, who is still out of action with a jaw injury. Ali announced that Kofi will not be cleared in time for Sunday’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view, and then declared his spot for the Men’s Rumble Match.
