Three Wrestlers Added To Rumble Match, Jericho Update, MVP On "Soccer AM"

— R-Truth, Carlito and The Brian Kendrick have just been added to the Royal Rumble match, bringing the total to 17. Others scheduled to participate in the match include The Miz, John Morrison, Kane, Cody Rhodes, Ted DiBiase, Santino Marella, Rey Mysterio, Undertaker, Kofi Kingston, Randy Orton, Vladimir Kozlov, Shelton Benjamin, Triple H and Big Show. Chris Jericho was previously announced for the Rumble match, but he was removed when Stephanie McMahon “fired” him on Monday’s Raw.

— Chris Jericho was advertised to wrestle John Cena at Raw brand house shows this weekend, but is apparently off them following his “firing” on Monday’s Raw. Randy Orton took his place at last night’s house show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in a losing effort to Cena.

— MVP appeared on “Soccer AM” earlier today, which is a Saturday morning programme in the UK. He stayed in character a bit, but also broke kayfabe, admitting that wrestling is scripted and that he used to be in jail. MVP also knew enough about football (soccer) to have a conversation with the hosts about it. You can see video of his appearance at the following link.
