10 potential Royal Rumble participants (5 Male & 5 Female)
WWE will want to make the 2018 Royal Rumble event memorable. With news that the first-ever women's Royal Rumble will take place this January, it means the company will want to pull out all the stops to ensure it is a success.
For WWE to make sure the 2018 Royal Rumble is remembered as one of the greatest events in Rumble history, they will have to bring back some names from the past. The "Surprise Royal Rumble Entrant" has become something of a tradition in WWE and 2018 should feature several such surprises.
The first-ever women's Royal Rumble match provides a particularly intriguing opportunity for many past women champions to return to the company as well.
In this article, we take a look at 10 potential surprise entrants in the 2018 Royal Rumbles (both of them).
#10 Trish Stratus
It's entirely possible we see Trish Stratus in the 1st ever women's Royal Rumble. In fact, not long after Stephanie McMahon announced the match on Raw, Trish posted a message of congratulations and also indicated she was interested in being in the match. Few can argue she has earned the right to be there.
Trish Stratus is arguably the most well-respected women's wrestler of all-time. Unfortunately, a full-time return is not likely in the cards for the 42-year-old mother of 2. It would be great to get her back for one more big pop, however, and the 2018 Royal Rumble would be a great place for that.
