Big names rumored to be the surprise entrants in the Royal Rumble match
With top tier stars nursing injuries coupled with dicey ratings, WWE would resort to a timeless solution - surprising returns.
Royal Rumble is just a week away and the reports regarding the possible surprise entrants have been coming in like wildfire.
One of the obvious names that have been doing the rounds is that of Triple H. Triple H is out with a storyline injury after he was brutally laid out by Roman Reigns at TLC. Considering the recent past, Triple H entering the Rumble is set to happen.
The interesting names that have sprung up, though, are that of Daniel Bryan and the Undertaker.
Daniel Bryan has been putting in extra hours in the gym and seems to be preparing for an in-ring return, irrespective of WWE barring him from returning. After the recent rumors of him being released were squashed, a Daniel Bryan return isn’t a long shot considering the dearth of big name stars.
With John Cena out for a long span, WWE could very well turn towards their most loyal employee – The Undertaker, according to Inquisitr. The Phenom hasn’t been in a rumble match since 2010 and it would be a novel booking decision for the Deadman to be included in the Royal Rumble match.
It is rumored that Undertaker could come in late into the match and be eliminated by the star who he would face at WrestleMania 32.
The other noteworthy names from the dirt sheets include AJ Styles, Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, Sami Zayn and Baron Corbin. Baron Corbin may be a darkhorse for the coveted spot, but could be the eventual surprise entrant as Triple H is said to be high on him.
