30 years since the annual tradition first began, The Royal Rumble remains the favourite pay-per-view for many WWE enthusiasts. The sheer exhilaration of the clock counting down to zero, and the anticipation of who the next entrant will be; have been enough to keep us on the edge of our seats, year after year.
In 2017, The Royal Rumble heads to the legendary Alamodome in Texas. Yes, we believe that with the capacity 60000+ audience that WWE is expecting at the venue, it is the ideal platform for many superstars to make their big stage return. If these men do not return for this grand occasion, it may be an opportunity lost for WWE.
This countdown names 5 men who should return at next year’s Royal Rumble in January, with one honourable mention as well.
#5 The Undertaker
The Undertaker looked like he was in great shape when he made his return to Smackdown. However, we do know that he had to undergo hip surgery not so long back and a full-fledged match may be out of his comfort zone right now.
A Royal Rumble match allows him to make a dominant entrance, and get eliminated in a safe manner, to maybe set up a Mania feud. Maybe even win the entire match like he did exactly ten years ago (also in his home state of Texas).
We don’t know how many Wrestlemanias The Undertaker has left in him. If this will be his last then he deserves to main event the pay-per-view that he has helped carry on his legendary back for many, many years.
