WWE will kick start their PPV calendar for the year 2021 with Royal Rumble PPV.

The winner of the annual Royal Rumble match gets to challenge the World Champion of his/her choice.
Since 2018, WWE started to hold both Men and Women Royal Rumble matches and the same is expected for this year also. The event has suffered due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The location is not announced for the show due to the same reason and the event is likely to take place either with limited audience or fans will join via virtual mediums.
WWE Royal Rumble 2021 Matches (Match Card)
Drew McIntyre(c) vs Goldberg – WWE Championship
Goldberg appeared on RAW Legends night and told Drew McIntyre that he lacked respect for WWE Legends and that challenged him for the WWE Championship match at Royal Rumble. McIntyre replied that facing Goldberg in the ring would be like wrestling his own dad. Goldberg shoved McIntyre to the ground. Next week, McIntyre appeared on RAW in a pre-recorded video to accept Goldberg’s challenge.
Roman Reigns(c) vs Kevin Owens – Last Man Standing Match, Universal Championship
A Gauntlet match was announced for the #1 contender for Roman at Royal Rumble 2021. WWE Official Adam Pearce won the match after Roman & Uso interfered in the match. However, Pearce nominated Kevin Owens in his place citing his knee injury & a clause in WWE rules which allows him for a replacement.
