The Royal Rumble is one of the most enjoyable nights of the year for the WWE Universe, as it is one of the most unpredictable events on the calendar. Fans never really know what to expect, with superstars from yesteryear often appearing for cameos during the match.
Last year’s Royal Rumble was one of the best in recent history, which means that there needs to be a number of surprises taking place in this year’s match if it is to reach the heights that were achieved last year.
WWE News: Rey Mysterio/Dominik Turn
Fans have been asking for more Dominik over recent weeks, as the son of Rey Mysterio has impressed whenever he has been given a chance on television. There is an indication that the son and father could be coming towards the end of their run together, with a match between the two at WrestleMania being a fitting end for Rey to end his career.
We could potentially see the framework put in place for that potential rivalry at the Royal Rumble, as Dominik finally turns on his father and eliminates him from the match. It would have been a huge moment that gained a massive pop with an audience. But, nonetheless, it will still be a massive moment that fans will enjoy from the comfort of their own home.
WWE News: Randy Orton Costs Alexa Bliss
Alexa Bliss has been on a roll in recent weeks, and there is every indication that she will be challenging Asuka for the Raw Women’s Championship at some point in 2021. Bliss won the first meeting against Asuka, as The Fiend took control of her and enabled her to overpower the Empress on Raw this past week.
She also declared that would be entering the Royal Rumble on the same show, but Randy Orton could have other ideas when it comes to Bliss and her chances of winning the match. He could eliminate her to deny her the chance to challenge for the title, which would add another layer to The Fiend/Orton story.
WWE News: Surprise Entrants
The Royal Rumble is all about the surprise entrants that get involved in the match, and this year’s match will likely once again throw up a number of surprise superstars. Seth Rollins is due to return at some point soon, and could be among the entrants that catch the audience unaware.
Meanwhile, Edge is also nearing his return and could make a grand reappearance in the Royal Rumble for the second year in a row. Samoa Joe and Wade Barrett could also be among the names that fans could swap the commentary booth for the ring at the end of January.
