5 former superstars WWE should bring back for the Royal Rumble
If there is one thing the Royal Rumble is known for, it is its unpredictability. Over the years the WWE has done a good job in protecting the surprise factor that comes along with the Royal Rumble match. The surprise may be sweet or bitter, and it depends entirely on the timing of its delivery. We can get sweet surprises like Edge's return in 2010 or we can get bitter surprises like the 30th entrant of the 2017 rumble match.
But the only surprise that never fails to make the fans happy is the return of the former superstars. We have seen multiple superstars make their returns to the WWE in the Royal Rumble match in the past and it is not a sin to expect the same to happen this year. Let's look into the 5 former superstars the WWE should bring back for the 2018 Royal Rumble.
#5 Rey Mysterio
We'll start this list with the winner of the 2006 Royal Rumble, Rey Mysterio. The master of the 619 was a mainstay in the WWE during the early 2000's and he was an integral part of the WWE programming during the period.
Standing in at the time when Vince McMahon considered any WWE superstar below 6 ft as a vanilla midget, Mysterio proved to be the difference factor. He rose to prominence in 2006 after the demise of his best friend, the late great Eddie Guerrero. He has won the World heavyweight championship twice and the WWE Championship once in his hall of fame worthy career.
It won't be a bad idea to have Rey Mysterio return to the WWE to have one final run in the biggest wrestling promotion in the world and have his retirement match in the company that made him a superstar.
