The Royal Rumble is usually the perfect place to re-introduce a WWE Superstar who is out due to an injury or if he hasn't been on WWE television for long. This year's Royal Rumble could see several WWE Superstars returning either in the Royal Rumble match or to begin a new feud with some other Superstar.

We are most likely to see the NXT Superstars who were announced to move to the main roster, last month, at Royal Rumble. Which other Superstars would make a return at WWE's first PPV of 2019?

Here are 5 Superstars who may return at 2019 Royal Rumble:

#5 Matt Hardy

Matt Hardy teased retirement back in August 2018 when he and his tag team partner Bray Wyatt, split up, as Hardy had to step away from the ring to recuperate from his injuries.

Hardy and Wyatt had become RAW Tag Team champions after they teamed up at WrestleMania.

After Hardy posted some throwback photos of himself as well as thanking various people who have influenced and helped him in his career, many believed that he was to retire.

But that does not seem to be the case as Hardy has revealed in interviews that he hasn't retired, and teased a return back to the ring, recently.

When he spoke with Sportskeeda's Riju Dasgupta, he dispelled rumours of his retirement: "I took time off to heal some nagging injuries and I'll be back sooner rather than later. So, I've been doing this twenty-six years. I was just a little beat up. I was given a little time off. From when I've been back, for over a year and a half, I was full time. I did everything."

We could very well see him in the Royal Rumble match, which will get a huge pop from the crowd.
