The Royal Rumble matches that give their name to the WWE PPV of the same name often feature some incredible debuts and comebacks that leave fans of the WWE Universe in awe. Apparently, for this year, WWE has some slightly different and unconventional surprises in mind, as reported by the Ringside News site and the Fightful Select podcast.
In the last few hours, the well-known podcast reported in fact: "WWE has had some of its meetings to discuss the upcoming Royal Rumble match. Fightful Select has learned that several veterans have been contacted by WWE for an appearance in the Royal Rumble, WWE has told them that in some of these cases there will be segments that they call 'non-traditional surprises'
Not knowing what it means, the creative team members and producers were prompted by this thing. Last year, WWE brought several NXT names into the Royal Rumble match. Additionally, we were told last week that Ronda Rousey is currently not scheduled to appear at the Royal Rumble due to her loss of the title, but that could change.
Until December, Rousey was scheduled to have a singles match for the show. In addition, we're told that WWE is very happy with its female roster given the hiring and call-ups over the past year, which could play a big role in the Royal Rumble match.
Last year WWE called several veterans because of the mass releases, with a halved roster. Jason Cade has also been brought in to help build the Royal Rumble and TJ Wilson will be with him. Last year, Wilson wasn't there and WWE had to call in Fit Finlay to help."
Update on the Royal Rumble
As always reported by Fightful Select himself a few days ago, it seems that Logan Paul is also about to return to the scene with WWE, with the well-known site having reported only at the beginning of the week: "WWE hopes they can recover stardom in time for the Royal Rumble.
Fightful Select has learned that WWE is hoping to get star Logan Paul back and an appearance from him at the Royal Rumble later this month. We haven't heard any solid details about his plans, but at least last week, WWE was hoping to have him back in training for a match soon.
We can confirm internal rumors about this. Logan Paul's last appearance was in the amazing match against Roman Reigns. After the match, Paul said he pulled several ligaments and muscles in his knee. In any case, his brother Jake had already averted a bad injury."
