The Royal Rumble PPV is fast-approaching

Royal Rumble is one of the most traditional and loved Pay-Per-Views of the year, and it is also the place where the road to WrestleMania officially begins.

With the landscape of the WWE drastically changing due to the emergence of newer superstars, there are huge expectations on how the 2019 Royal Rumble will turn out to be.

However, this year's men's Royal Rumble match seems to be the most unpredictable one in the past decade or so.

I call this year's Rumble unpredictable not just because of our inability to predict the winner, but also how the surprise entrants will turn out to be in the hour-long match. They can be the returning superstars like Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, or the superstars from the past like Chris Jericho and others, and also the NXT wrestlers. 

Over the years, the Royal Rumble has served as a testing ground for several NXT stars like Andrade 'Cien' Almas, Sami Zayn, Adam Cole, Rusev.

Here are five NXT Superstars who could appear in the 2019 Royal Rumble match at the Chase Field.

#5 Ricochet


Which are the wrestlers that comes to your mind when you hear the name, Royal Rumble? Most of the people's answer would be Kofi Kingston or John Morrison, and the one common thing between these two incredible stars is their method of wrestling. This is because of the fact that the high-flying wrestlers will make the most impact in a Rumble match. Ricochet could be the newest addition to this list.

The North American Champion is probably the best high-flyer in the entire wrestling industry let alone WWE, and his entry into the Royal Rumble 2019 can be the talking point of the show.


This entry in the annual battle royal can just be a one-off affair so that the non-internet WWE Universe can get familiarized with the one and only Ricochet.

With him holding the North American Championship, he is the least expected wrestler to show up at the year's second biggest event. A standoff between King and wrestlers such as Seth Rollins or AJ Styles can blow the roof of the arena.
