One of the best parts of the Royal Rumble premium live event is the surprise participants involved in the matches each year.
While this year's surprises have been kept close to the vest by those in WWE, the names of some potential participants have started to leak out this week, which could fill some holes in the men's and women's Rumble matches.
According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, there have been talks of former WWE Superstar Nia Jax taking part in this weekend's Women's Royal Rumble match. While Johnson wouldn't guarantee her involvement, he made it clear it was something he heard that made him believe she could return as a surprise this Saturday night.
The former RAW Women's Champion was released by the company in November 2021 and hasn't wrestled since. At one point, she was scheduled for AOP's Wrestling Entertainment Series event in England before pulling herself off the show. In hindsight, this was a great decision, as the event never ended up taking place.
Nia Jax was recently asked on social media about the possibility of returning to the squared circle and responded with a funny GIF that said, "Sorry, wrong number."
