John Cena started the new year off with a bang today, announcing he will join the field at the WWE Royal Rumble on January 28th in Philadelphia.
Though he hasn’t been featured on advertising for the pay-per-view show, Cena tweeted out his inclusion in the show earlier today:
A sunny morning on the first day of 2018. Possibilities are endless, opportunities are plentiful. Time to #EarnTheDay because on January 28th, I’m entering the #RoyalRumble match and earning a chance at history @WrestleMania! #Raw
