10... 9... 8... 7... 6... 5... 4... 3... 2... 1... Siren!
It's a feeling all wrestling fans know, the countdown towards the next Royal Rumble entrant. We have now entered the final 10 days towards the 2019 Royal Rumble. One of the biggest drawcards of the Rumble is the random nature of the match itself. While wrestlers will announce themselves as competitors, a few spots are left open every Royal Rumble for surprise legendary returns from years gone by or, more recently, from NXT superstars who are yet to appear on the main roster.
In the past few years, legendary appearances from wrestlers like Rey Mysterio and The Hurricane in the 2018 Royal Rumble, or Bubba Ray Dudley, The Boogeyman and Diamond Dallas Page turning up as surprise entrants for the 2015 Royal Rumble. While NXT Superstars, like Andrade 'Cien Almas, Adam Cole, Tye Dillinger, Sami Zayn, and Bo Dallas have made excellent impacts when featured in the Royal Rumble match despite being with NXT at the time.
The 2018 women's Royal Rumble also filled their field with great legends like Lita, Trish Stratus, Molly Holly, Jacqueline, Kelly Kelly, Michelle McCool, Torrie Wilson, Vickie Guerrero, Beth Phoenix, and Brie Bella making their in-ring returns since leaving the company. The first ever all-female Royal Rumble also contained two NXT call-ups in Ember Moon and Kairi Sane, with Sane's call up being late after Alicia Fox was injured.
