The 2019 Royal Rumble will be the 32nd Royal Rumble event in WWE's history, and will be held at the Chase Field in Phoenix, on 27th January.

The PPV will see the return of Brock Lesnar, who will defend his title against Braun Strowman, while AJ Styles will look to regain the WWE Championship when he faces off against Daniel Bryan.

The RAW and SmackDown women's titles are on the line, as Ronda Rousey defends her RAW Women's title against Sasha Banks, while Becky Lynch will go one-on-one against Asuka for the SmackDown women's title.

The matches that most fans want to see will be the 30-man and 30-woman Royal Rumble match, with the winner getting a shot at the title of their choice.

The Rumble is the first PPV of the year and is an important one, as we build new storylines and feuds heading into WrestleMania season. The PPV has historically been the show where new Superstars have been introduced, and the buzz going around this year is that Kenny Omega will finally sign with the WWE and make an appearance at Royal Rumble.

But there may be some Superstars who will not be making an appearance on the PPV. Let's take a look at 5 Superstars who won't be returning at the Royal Rumble


#5 The Undertaker

Let's get the obvious one out of the way first. The Undertaker will most certainly not be wrestling at Royal Rumble, let alone taking part in the 30-man Royal Rumble match. The Undertaker has only taken part once in the last decade in the Royal Rumble match, back in 2017.

It is highly unlikely that we will see him in that match, or any of the other matches as he currently doesn't have any suitable feud on the roster, heading into WrestleMania season.

His last appearance and match in the WWE was at Crown Jewel, where he and Kane teamed to face off against Shawn Michaels and Triple H, a match that they lost.
