The Royal Rumble is a unique PPV in the WWE, where a Superstar's fortunes in the promotion can turn around overnight. Many Superstars over the years have benefitted hugely from a good showing in the Rumble, especially the Royal Rumble match.

This year's Royal Rumble will see the men's and women's Rumble matches, where 30 men and 30 women will face off in a battle royal, with the men's winner getting a shot at the Universal or WWE Championship, while the women's winner can choose between the RAW or SmackDown women's champion.

A surprise entrant in the Rumble match can get a huge pop from the audience, as well as set-up new storylines. A returning Superstar, either after a hiatus due to injury, or a semi-retired Superstar, can be a good addition to the show.

There have been several rumours about certain stars returning at the Royal Rumble.

But these 5 Superstars below, shouldn't be a part of the Royal Rumble match later this month, for a variety of reasons.

Let's take a look at 5 Royal Rumble surprise entrants we don't want to see:

#5 The Bella Twins

The WWE Universe dislikes part-timers, as has been evidenced by the reaction that Brock Lesnar gets these days. So, expect a similar reaction if one of the Bella Twins - Nikki and Brie, is one of the last few remaining in the Rumble match.


In last year's first-ever women's Royal Rumble match, Brie and Nikki Bella put up a good showing, with the latter being the last one to be eliminated by Asuka.

The twins haven't featured much in the last year or so, making a handful of appearances. A deep run in the Rumble match for either of them would rob a much more deserving full-time Superstar an opportunity to impress, and even win, the Rumble match.
