WWE is about to book a major match for the 2017 Royal Rumble, according to a report by Pro Wrestling Insider. WWE is reportedly looking at pitting The Undertaker vs. AJ Styles for the WWE Championship at the Rumble. On last week’s Smackdown Live, The Undertaker made it known that WrestleMania won’t be the only thing that makes up his legacy and he intends to be involved more on WWE programming.
Styles vs. Undertaker would be a mega dream match for many fans and it could be the match that helps get WWE a 60,000 attendance at the Alamodome in San Antonio, TX. The 2017 Royal Rumble is the 20th anniversary of the show that was headlined by Shawn Michaels vs. Sycho Sid for the WWF/E Championship. That show also took place in the San Antonio Alamodome.
In addition to Undertaker vs. Styles, Brock Lesnar and Goldberg will be competing in the Royal Rumble match. Presumably, that means that they will end up fighting again at WrestleMania 33.
