One of the more fun things for fans to do as the Rumble nears is to guess which wrestlers will make appearances as "surprise entrants" into the main event.
My prediction for this match may be seen by some to totally unrealistic, but when you think about it, it would be an incredible way for one of the most well known and celebrated wrestlers to end their career.
The list of Jericho will easily go down as one of the highlights, while the newly-added catchphrases ranging from "drink it in man", and "sexy piñata" have gone over with the WWE Universe.
-Sheamus and Cesaro vs. Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson with two referees for the Raw Tag Titles (Kickoff Show).
Part of me thinks that the victor will be someone that has not been announced and hopefully one of those unannounced names turns out to be former NXT champion Samoa Joe. During a WWE SmackDown match between Alexa Bliss and Becky Lynch earlier this month, it was revealed that Mickie James was La Luchadora.
In other action, Charlotte defends the WWE Raw Women's Championship against Bayley. The match was scheduled after Bayley defeated Nia Jax in a number one contender match.
Show challenged O'Neal at last year's ESPY Awards in Los Angeles. Neville also attacked T.J. Perkins after the match and said in the following WWE Raw episode that he was the King of the Cruiserweights. Omega hasn't been very active on Twitter this morning meaning he's on the plane to San Antonio or he's been resting after a big match last night.
Wrestling fans can again see their favorites go head to head on the ring for this year's "The Royal Rumble". The stable - which included Harper as a defending champion via the company's Freebird Rule - lost the titles on the December 27 episode of SmackDown Live to American Alpha. Ric Flair won the famous 1992 Royal Rumble from the #3 spot, winning the vacant WWF World Heavyweight Championship in the process. The overall hope from this Sunday's event is that the company begins to move away from the band aids it depends on like Goldberg or The Undertaker and begin the transition to new stars such as Finn Balor and others. Let's examine four potential outcomes to Cena vs. Styles and analyze what effect they will have on WWE.
That also speaks to how WWE might be using the Rumble now; with its acquisition of independent talent from all over the world, anyone who is main roster ready could theoretically pop up at the match. The obvious finish is Jericho drops an item intended for Owens but Reigns intercepts it and knocks out Owens to win.
This latest return also produced a fantastic rivalry with AJ Styles, and an entertaining partnership with Kevin Owens.
