Backstage News On Plans For 2014 Royal Rumble Match Surprise Entrants

According to reports, the plan as of this week is for both currently injured top WWE Superstars John Cena and Sheamus to be the surprise returns at the 2014 WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view event in January.

One source claimed that if both Cena and Sheamus returned on the same night, in the same match, it’s doubtful that there would be any other surprises, such as Jake “The Snake” Roberts.

    If at the very least Sheamus returns as a heel, it would be an okay surprise…

  • pwnez

    As long as neither guy wins the rumble match i’ll be happy.

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      Pft. We all know you are secretly rooting for Sheamus to win and go on to become champion at Wrestlemania…

      God, that sounds like a horrible nightmare.

      • pwnez

        Isn’t Miz vs Sheamus for the WWE title at WrestleMania 30 your dream match?

    if cena and sheamus appear as surprise returns then i am ok with it,but if one of them wins it ruins the outcome of the match.

    “it’s doubtful that there would be any other surprises”

    cena and sheamus returning isn’t a surprise.

    a real legend returning is.

        I would love to see batista or Goldberg also ddp, or warrior but not taker I wouldn’t want him to win another rumble it would be cool to see him face lesnar or cena this year at mania.

    • Progressed_Now

  • Marshall Mathers

  • raven

    Jake will be in the rumble, this entire “story” is to make you think he wont be so you are surprised when you see him. always watch both hands

  • rashad jackson

      Stop lying. How many have you on here claim that if Cena wins this match or that match, you’ll never watch WWE again? You’ll be watching WWE just like the rest of us.

    If your gonna have cena return, have him return, get close to winning the match then end up losing it, to have a basic setup for a match with Taker at mania. He DOES NOT need to win the rumble again.

    • Progressed_Now

      FUUCK Chena at Mania

    • brad

      Yea something like taker eliminates him then cena gets pissed off and eliminates taker then they have like a brawl outside, and it leads up to an epic wrestlemania match between cena and taker.

    and chris jericho?????? why not return ???

    I’m guessing Sheamus will turn heel and eliminate Cena to kick off 2009. Ugh.

  • Jahwan

    I still think CM Punk should win the Royal Rumble this year, then Daniel Bryan wins the championship in a HUGE upset victory in the Elimination Chamber (Randy Orton, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Daniel Bryan, and Triple H were in this match, HHH taps out to the YES! Lock and Daniel wins). Right after the chamber is lifted, Punk’s music hits then walks down to the ring and has a staredown with Bryan, as DB hoists the title above his head.

    But we all know it won’t happen like this…

    • Progressed_Now

      now that’s one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard. haven’t you been paying attention? HHH no longer gets title shots.

      • Jahwan

        HHH in the match is just extra insurance. I don’t see how that’s “the dumbest thing you’ve ever heard”. Of course HHH won’t win the title.

    • Progressed_Now

      now that’s one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard. haven’t you been paying attention? HHH no longer gets title shots.

  • PunkFan#1

    They should have someone like Bryan, Punk, Ambrose or Kane winning the Royal Rumble.

  • Robbie Wojdyla

    bo dallas to win 2014 rumble!

  • Crocodile Dundee

    Theres been more than one or two surprises in a royal rumble before. not sure having cena or sheamus return in this match would even be surprising. itd be expected. jake the snake, diesel, all these old guys that come back are the surprises. not guys who have been on top for years now. that being said, id be disappointed if those returns would be the “surprises” for the night. Thankfully we don’t have to sit through yet another cena rumble return and win.
