The Royal Rumble is one of the major PPVs of WWE, and it is an exciting event before Wrestlemania, and itis scheduled to take place at Pheonix, Arizona on 27th January, 2019.
The first ever Royal Rumble was held in 1988. The PPV is known for the Battle Royal match where the participants try to eliminate each other from the ring. Strength, size, and agility play a massive role in a Royal Rumble match. As a matter of fact, the last participant to survive the match becomes the winner. The Royal Rumble winner gets a reward, as the winner gets to headline Wrestlemania.
The Royal Rumble is conventionally a 30-man Battle Royal match. However, 40 superstars participated in 2011, and Alberto Del Rio won the match.
WWE made history last year when they introduced the women's Royal Rumble match. Hence, there will be two exciting battle Royal matches at the Royal Rumble this year. Asuka won the inaugural women's Royal Rumble match, and Shinsuke Nakamura won the men's Royal Rumble match last year.
Many legendary superstars have won the Royal Rumble match. Superstars like The Undertaker, Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold, John Cena, The Rock, Roman Reigns and many more headlined Wrestlemania after winning the Royal Rumble.
Surprising Royal Rumble entries and shocking incidents are common in a Royal Rumble match. Here we discuss three incidents that could happen at Royal Rumble this year.
#3 The return of Batista
Several surprising entrants might appear this year, and one of them could be Batista. Currently, Batista is not an active wrestler, but he could come back for his last tenure in WWE.
As a matter of fact, Batista appeared on the 1000th episode of Smackdown Live and teased his return when he had a face-off with Triple H.
Batista is a big name in WWE, and he is one the greatest superstars. He made his WWE debut in 2002, and he has a long list of achievements in his career.
He was part of Evolution, which had Triple H, Ric Flair, and Randy Orton. He won the World Heavyweight title four times, the WWE title twice, and the tag team titles four times.
Batista won the Royal Rumble match twice. He was the winner of Royal Rumble in 2014 when he returned to WWE. Nevertheless, he has a tiny chance to win Royal Rumble this year if he enters the match. Batista could come back for a match against Triple H at WrestleMania 35.
