Following last night’s WWE TV tapings in Laredo, TX, WWE held a special Royal Rumble match, sponsored by KFC, to determine which WWE star will next play Colonel Sanders.
WWE stars Titus O’Neil, Heath Slater, The Miz, Mojo Rawley, Breezango, The Miz and WWE Champion AJ Styles were all participants in the match, which saw Styles get the win after he hit Rusev with a Stone Cold Stunner to get the elimination.
WWE has a working partnership with KFC, and in the past, the famous Colonel Sanders character has been played by WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels and Smackdown Star Dolph Ziggler on WWE TV.
