5 Surprise Returns That Could Take Place At The 2019 Royal Rumble
The Royal Rumble is right around the corner and the fact that the show is usually filled with surprises is why it's become one of the most popular shows of the year. The Royal Rumble allows the winner to be granted a Championship match of their choosing at WrestleMania despite the fact that there are still two pay-per-views for the company to broadcast before they land in New Jersey on April 7th.
This year the company has seemingly taken a different route ahead of the Royal Rumble, by announcing almost the entire field for the Women's Royal Rumble match, but not focusing a lot on the men's Royal Rumble, since it's thought that either Drew McIntyre or Seth Rollins will be walking away with the victory at this year's show.
There is a lot of potential when it comes to surprises for this year's show and here are just a few names that are currently on the radar.
#5. Shawn Michaels
Shawn Michaels returned to the ring for the first time in eight years at Crown Jewel back in November where he teamed with Triple H in a winning effort against The Undertaker and Kane.
Michaels was once rumored to be the man that the company wanted to finally end The Undertaker's career at WrestleMania. Undertaker famously ended Michaels career back at WrestleMania 26, but the former World Champion has since returned to the ring and became a thorn in the side of The Deadman once again.
Michaels could return as part of this weekend's Royal Rumble to set up the rumored match, but at present, it is unknown as to whether or not this is still the plan or if WWE has since changed The Undertaker's WrestleMania opponent. All will become clear on Sunday night.
