5 WWE stars who would be wasted spots in The Royal Rumble
There are a number of WWE stars who will just be "making up the numbers" at The Royal Rumble next year
The Royal Rumble is right around the corner and it seems that the Raw roster is already preparing themselves for one of the biggest events of the year.
Clash of Champions still stands in the SmackDown roster's path before they can get a clear view of the annual event, but it seems that the show is now close enough that the WWE Universe is already making predictions when it comes to who should win next year's match.
The winner of The Royal Rumble traditionally goes on to main event WrestleMania and with various plans already considered to have been leaked, it seems that there are only a handful of WWE stars who could actually make history and become the 2018 Royal Rumble winner.
That means that there are a number of spots in the match that would just be considered fillers and it seems that the following five stars would be the most obvious choices to fill them.
#5 Tye Dillinger
Tye Dillinger made his main roster debut as part of the 2017 Royal Rumble when he was announced in the number 10 spot. It seems hard to imagine anyone else in that spot again this year, but if Tye Dillinger is chosen to be a part of The Rumble then it's likely only because he is going to be quickly eliminated.
Dillinger hasn't been part of any meaningful storylines since his debut and it's highly unlikely that WWE would push him to win the match. Braun Strowman could well be a wrecking ball inside this year's Rumble match which would mean he would need a number of victims and Tye Dillinger could be an interesting star for him to eliminate.
