The Royal Rumble match sees 30 wrestlers with the winner earning a world championship match at that year's WrestleMania. For 2022, the men and women can choose which world championship to challenge for at WrestleMania 38.
This year, Becky Lynch and Doudrop will fight it out for the WWE Raw Women's Championship. Edge and Beth Phoenix will take on the team of Miz and Maryse as well.
