5 Surprise entrants we would love to see at the Royal Rumble
It's that time of the year again when the adrenaline rushes through the veins of professional wrestling fans. We will officially kick start our journey on the road to WrestleMania. The first step on the road to WrestleMania is the traditional Royal Rumble event. Thirty men and women will square off against each other to get a once in a lifetime opportunity to compete for a world championship at the Show of Shows.
Ever since its inception, the main factor that draws the attention of the fans is the surprise entrants. We will never know who will step out when the timer stops counting, and we have had numerous feel-good moments witnessing such surprise returns. The last major surprise the WWE pulled off was AJ Styles in the 2016 Royal Rumble and the next two years didn’t live up to the expectations. That adds up the pressure for the WWE to put on a good show this year.
With all that said, let’s take a gander at the five surprise entrants we would love to see at this year’s Royal Rumble.
#5 The Undertaker
The last time we saw The Undertaker was at the Crown Jewel event where he and Kane lost their tag team match against DX. The Undertaker has been making only sporadic appearances in the WWE for the last few years but frees his schedule to compete at WrestleMania.
The Deadman does not have much time left until he hangs up his boots. He would like to have a good retirement match which will remain in the memories of the fans forever. This year’s Royal Rumble could pave the way for that match if 'Taker decides to call it a career.
John Cena could be the opponent for The Undertaker at WrestleMania 35. After getting squashed at the hands of The Deadman last year, it is obvious the two superstars would square off once again. John Cena is also in the Royal Rumble match, so having Undertaker as a surprise entrant and rekindle his rivalry with John Cena does not sound like a bad idea.
