Here’s the synopsis for Royal Rumble 2012:
It’s the dream of every superstar—to headline WrestleMania. Last year’s Royal Rumble was the biggest ever, when for the first time ever, 40 men competed, with Alberto Del Rio outlasting 39 other competitors, earning him a championship match at WrestleMania 27, as well as the stunning returns of Kevin Nash and Booker T.
This year’s event promises to be even bigger, packed with new surprises and the superstars of Raw and SmackDown, including past winners Alberto Del Rio, Randy Orton, and John Cena, and superstars looking to add this impressive goal to their resume, including Wade Barrett, Kofi Kingston, CM Punk, Sheamus, The Miz, Mark Henry, R-Truth, and more will do everything in their power to overpower and outlast the competition as the Road to WrestleMania 28 begins at the Royal Rumble.
