by SIMONE BRUGNOLI | VIEW 3162
Less than a week to go until the WWE Royal Rumble 2022 dispute, the first Big Four event of the new year and above all one of the most famous and loved ones by fans around the world. A real date circled in red in the personal calendar of every fan of the discipline, with the inevitable expectation of knowing who will be able to prevail among the sixty athletes who aim to earn a place of honor at WrestleMania.
This edition appears a bit particular and in some ways different from the others, due to the Raw and SmackDown rosters that are decidedly less crowded than in past years. But above all it is the theme of the Forbidden Door that teases the imagination of fans: after the announcement of the presence of Mickie James, current Impact champion, one wonders if there may also be other wrestlers that WWE will host from other companies.
In this sense, one of the rumors that is dividing fans the most concerns Jonathan Good, that is the WWE's Dean Ambrose who became Jon Moxley in AEW. There is no shortage of clues that would suggest a surprise appearance at the Royal Rumble, and American sources are examining them.
Especially since Seth Rollins has openly talked about "Mox" in his verbal confrontation with Roman Reigns in the episode of SmackDown last Friday night. In this sense, however, the whole affair at the moment is to be restricted to the field of rumors.
