Why the WWE Royal Rumble 2024 Main Event was CHANGED

We at Real Rasslin have come to learn.

In a surprising turn of events, the WWE Royal Rumble 2024 main event underwent a surprise change, leading to a fatal four-way match for the unified WWE Universal title.

Initially slated as a showdown between Roman Reigns and Randy Orton, the event now features Roman Reigns defending his title against Randy Orton, LA Knight, and AJ Styles

This shift in plans has sparked considerable discussion among fans and analysts alike.

WWE Royal Rumble 2024 Main Event Original Plan: Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton

The original plan for the Royal Rumble 2024 was a highly anticipated match between Roman Reigns and Randy Orton for the Universal Championship.

This match promised to be a highlight for the event, given the stature and fan following of both wrestlers. However, behind-the-scenes decisions led to a change in this plan.

Strategic Shift to a Fatal Four-Way

According to reports the decision to move to a fatal four-way match was strategic.

The rationale behind this shift was multifaceted. Firstly, there was a reluctance to have Randy Orton lose to Roman Reigns this early, considering the potential future storyline and revenue opportunities a prolonged rivalry between the two could offer.

Secondly, LA Knight, having recently suffered a defeat at Crown Jewel, and AJ Styles, not being positioned strongly enough, were considered as additional competitors who could add unpredictability and excitement to the match.
