The WWE 2K19 video game provides plenty of ways to play or simulate the excitement of Raw, SmackDown, NXT, or pay-per-view events. With the WWE’s Royal Rumble quickly approaching in January 2019, the 2K crew is showcasing that aspect of the pro wrestling game. A brand new WWE 2K19 Royal Rumble video arrived to show off the unique ways to eliminate opponents from the match.
WWE 2K19 Royal Rumble details, simulation
The WWE 2K19 Royal Rumble is a fun part of the video game where gamers can set up their own massive elimination match using current WWE superstars (or other characters). Typically, the WWE’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view involves a total of 30 male superstars or 30 female superstars. That appears to be the format for the 2019 event.
The match starts off with the first two entrants, and then a new entrant arrives to the ring in timed intervals. Superstars eliminate their opponents by tossing them over the ropes and to the floor. The last superstar remaining wins the Royal Rumble match and usually gets a title match at WrestleMania.
A handful of competitors are already known for the WWE Royal Rumble 2019 match. They include Drew McIntyre, Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods of The New Day, as well as R-Truth. Truth gets the advantage of entering at No. 30. On the women’s side, eight competitors are known so far. They are Carmella, Ember Moon, Natalya, Sasha Banks, Bayley, Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan, and Sarah Logan.
Fans are waiting to see the rest of the participants, but these might be kept a surprise until the event gets closer. Either way, gamers can make educated guesses on who the other stars will be in the match and simulate this year’s Rumble accordingly.

The latest edition of the WWE’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view takes place on Sunday, January 27 from Phoenix, Arizona’s Chase Field. That’s the home of the Diamondbacks’ baseball team and marks the first time the event happens in a baseball stadium. It could be a historic event based on who enters and wins the two matches.
It should also be interesting to see what WWE 2K19 Community Creations arrive for WWE Royal Rumble weekend. In the meantime, fans can simulate the match and try out those impressive finishers to eliminate opponents in the game.
