WWE Royal Rumble 2019: Every Entrant In Both Rumble Matches


It's officially the start of Wrestlemania season, as WWE's first major event of the year, Royal Rumble, coming to PPV and the WWE Network this Sunday. Phoenix, Arizona's Chase Field will host the event, which starts at 7 PM ET / 4 PM PT. Obviously, it's going to be a long show, and even longer when you consider that the Kickoff Show starts two hours before the main card.

The main focus of the evening is none other than the Royal Rumble. Like last year, there will be two of these matches: one for the men and one for the women. The last person standing in this over-the-top-rope battle royale will get a title shot at Wrestlemania, so the stakes are high. You're probably wondering who will all be involved in both of these matches.

Well, we got you covered, as there have been numerous WWE superstars confirmed to enter this match, and there is still plenty of room for surprises. Below, you'll find every wrestler that's throwing their hat into the ring for the Royal Rumble, starting with the women.

Women Confirmed: 23

Men Confirmed: 20

For more on this year's Royal Rumble, check out the match card and our predictions for the event, as well as the match card for NXT Takeover. Make sure to come back to GameSpot on Sunday, January 27 for live coverage of the event, including all the entrants, surprises, and more, as well as a review of Royal Rumble as soon as it wraps up.

Meet Marvel's All New Guardians Of The Galaxy

about X hours ago from

This week marked the all-new number one issue of Marvel's latest Guardians Of The Galaxy series--an ongoing comic that has been ominously teased for the past few months by releasing a roster of extremely eclectic heroes as potential candidates for the roster. It's eclectic even by Guardians' standards, which is certainly saying something. But with the wait finally over and the truth of the new lineup revealed, the new trajectory for everyone's favorite rag-tag space heroes has finally been revealed.

Of course, as with most superhero comics, there are some things you should probably be aware of before you pick up this new #1. First, it directly jumps off from the latest crossover event, Infinity Wars--not to be confused with the MCU's Infinity War, though it did involve Thanos and the Infinity Stones--which means some characters have been shuffled around in major ways. The most obvious of the lot is Gamora, who had a rather disturbing heel turn during the Infinity Wars fiasco as she finally found herself more than fed up with her adopted father's antics. It's a bit dicey whether or not she could be called a proper villain right now, but she's certainly not one of the good guys.

Treyarch has rolled out another update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. This week, the developer brings Gauntlets and new Elixirs for Zombies mode to Xbox One and PC following their release on PS4 last week, while Sony's console receives a new event and Black Market loot.

On PS4, Treyarch has kicked off a special four-week event stream in the Black Market dubbed Barbarians. As part of this event, the developer has added 25 new tiers of loot below the Operation Absolute Zero stream, meaning players can unlock more loot than usual per tier. Among the new rewards are outfits, gestures, Reactive Camo, and the KAP 45 pistol.

The developer has also introduced a new Featured playlist on all platforms: Chaos Domination. This mode features two teams of six players and three-second zone capture time. Team Tactical Moshpit, Mercenary Deathmatch Moshpit, Mercenary Hardcore Moshpit, and Mercenary Capture Moshpit have also been added to the Featured category.

WWE NXT TakeOver Phoenix: Match Card, Date, And How To Watch The 2018 Event

Every January, the Royal Rumble stands out as one of WWE's biggest and more important events of the year. It's the beginning of the road to Wrestlemania and helps to set the tone for how the rest of the year will play out. The annual spectacle has some serious competition this year, though, thanks to NXT. Each time the developmental brand airs one of its TakeOver events on the WWE Network, it has the chance of surpassing the main roster's product in terms of excitement and quality--and the next event, TakeOver Phoenix, is no different.

This is the third time NXT has presented a TakeOver the night before the Royal Rumble, and with all of the brand's championship titles on the line, it has the makings of a historic event. Among the high-profile matches on the card is Tommaso Ciampa defending the NXT Championship against Aleister Black, and Bianca Belair attempting to best reigning NXT Women's Champion Shayna Baszler.

Following Netflix Price Hike, Hulu Drops Cost For Ad-Supported Tier

about X hours ago from

The video streaming service Hulu has announced plans to drop the price for its most popular subscription tier. Starting next month the ad-supported basic plan will drop to $6, down from $8. Its other pricing tiers will remain as they currently are.

The Hulu site already lists the new price, so it'll already be effective for new subscribers. Existing subscribers will see the new price take effect as of February 26. The $6 tier is ad-supported but includes all of Hulu's on-demand programming from participating channel providers, as well as Hulu's slate of original content. A separate $12 tier removes the ads, while a significantly higher $45 tier includes live TV and is aimed at competing with cable subscriptions.

This comes just days after Netflix announced that its own plans would be rising in price. The $8 plan, which was comparable to Hulu's ad-supported plan, will be raised to $9. Netflix's own most popular tier, which includes higher-quality streaming and device compatibility, rose from $11 to $13, while its 4K Ultra-HD plan went from $14 to $16. Netflix was reportedly planning to use the new prices to reinvest in its original programming.

Mortal Kombat's Ed Boon Tells Us How Fatalities Are Made And What Makes MK11 Unique

Mortal Kombat 11 went big by holding a kommunity reveal event and livestream to unveil the details of the next entry in this storied, brutal fighting game franchise. Several facets of the game were covered, which included new mechanics, a developing story, a brand new playable character, and a high-profile collaboration with UFC and WWE star Ronda Rousey. But behind the extravagant tongue-in-cheek gore and detailed combat system is series creator and long-time director Ed Boon. During the Mortal Kombat 11 reveal event, we had a moment to catch up with him to talk a little bit about the upcoming entry, how the NetherRealm team has evolved with Injustice and past MK games, and where the wild ideas for the gruesome fatalities come from.

Jon Shafer's At The Gates Review - Fertile New Ground

Jon Shafer's At The Gates Review - Fertile New Ground

In his time at Firaxis as the lead designer on Civilization V, Jon Shafer showed he wasn't afraid to uproot a settled and successful series and venture forth in search of something better. With At The Gates, his first release under the one-man studio moniker Conifer Games and his first game proper since Civ V, you get the feeling Shafer challenged himself to pack up the whole 4X genre and find fertile new ground on which to start over again.

Connections to the past remain--technologies are researched, resource nodes are exploited, wars are inevitably waged--but Shafer's pioneering vision here is of a genre that is narrower in scope and more concerned with how players respond to the figurative hand of cards they're dealt. At The Gates is a promising starting point that, with a few thoughtful additions, has the potential to develop into a thriving empire.

Star Trek Discovery Season 2: All The Easter Eggs So Far

Star Trek Discovery Season 2: All The Easter Eggs So Far


While Star Trek found a new lease of life on the big screen in 2009, it had been more than a decade since the last TV show in the long-running sci-fi franchise when Star Trek: Discovery premiered in September 2017. The show's producers faced the difficult task of making a show that appealed to modern audiences and new fans, as well as satisfying die-hard, long-term Trek devotees.

However, while the first season of Discovery took the story and characters in some surprising directions, it was also very aware of its past. Every episode contained multiple references and callbacks to something from the grand 54-year history of Star Trek, which you can check out in our Season 1 Easter Eggs gallery. Sometimes these were sly jokes that only the most dedicated fan would spot, and sometimes they were crucial plot-points.

Season 2 has now started, and it's clear that the Easter Eggs, callbacks, in-jokes and references will continue; after all, the season starts with an encounter with the Enterprise and the introduction of Captain Pike, a character who featured in the first episode of the original series. We also know that Spock is set to play a major part in this story. So let's take a look at all the Discovery Season 2 Easter Eggs so far...
