Royal Rumble Surprise Entrants

One of the highlights of the annual January pay-per-view is the Royal Rumble surprise entrants surprise entrants. Here are some of the people who could be filling some of the 10 unannounced spots in the Rumble.

Sheamus: He’s been out of action since August with a torn labrum and will be making an appearance at the World of Wheels Auto Show in Pittsburgh the day before the Rumble.

Chris Jericho: Jericho made a surprise appearance at last year’s Royal Rumble and will also be in town with Sheamus for the World of Wheels auto show.

Kevin Nash: Nash will be hosting a party just outside of Pittsburgh  the night before the Royal Rumble. He tweeted a photo of himself after dying his hair and goatee.  He claimed this was for a TV pilot he’s working on – but could we see the return of Big Daddy Cool Diesel at the Royal Rumble?

Jake Roberts: Jake shocked the world on RAW a few weeks ago when he made his first WWE television appearance since 2005. He’s been pushing for a spot in the Rumble for months – will Jake get one last chance to mix it up in a WWE ring?

2 Cold Scorpio: Sunday’s Royal Rumble takes place from Pittsburgh, just a few hours away from Philadelphia (the home of ECW).

Scorpio’s return would be presented as an ECW tie-in, playing of the ECW footage that will be available on the WWE Network.

Jimmy Wang Yang: Jimmy Wang Yang is a good friend of Batista and attended two WWE live events in the past week. He tweeted on Wednesday:

The Godfather/Papa Shango: Wade Barrett tweeted on Friday that he has forfeited his spot in the Royal Rumble. He hinted that his replacement has ties to voodoo, which he’s done over the past few years:

The Godfather made a surprise appearance in last year’s Rumble.

Daniel Bryan: Daniel Bryan is probably the top WWE superstar who is not currently booked for the Rumble. Bryan did an interview this week stating that despite Triple H not wanting him involved, he’s still “working on” getting a spot in the match.

We will update this page as more details become available regarding Royal Rumble surprise entrants. Keep in mind that these are just rumors at this point, but this is what we’re hearing so far.

    Breaking News from Dixie Carter to Ryback:

  • tre 8

    I heard Sheamus is suppose to return so don’t be surprised.

    • pwnez

      Bushwald Sexyface is gonna mark out.

    • mrchopper

      There’s a load of possible fairly safe/slightly boring comebacks – Ziggler, Christian, Sheamus, RVD, possibly Jericho and/or Nash (who are booked in or around Pittsburgh that weekend), even Ricardo could make a comeback of sorts considering he’s been doing commentary more recently.

  • Matt Gallagher

    Umm sescoops, Pittsburgh and Philly are not “a few hours” from each other. It takes a good 6 and a half hours to get there.

    • Mr 561

      Google says under 5 hours .. If I’m driving, closer to 3

      • Aperture

        Google is wrong. I had a rugby tournament in Santa Clarita and I googled the time I would get there. It told me 55 minutes, but it took an hour and a half.

      • Matt Gallagher

        We’ll google must not know there’s a damn mountain in the way

  • SwindleFox69

    Doesn’t Wade Barrett tease every year he’s giving his spot to Papa Shango and then it turns out it’s The Godfather instead? I know they’re the same guy but he does this every year.

  • bambam

    Jake Roberts And goldberg

  • scott

    Damn Barrett is out. that’s sad. He was my upset pick. Well Daniel Bryan better be in it. If he’s not it wont be worth watching

    • marc

      He is working mania with undertaker. Undertaker is coming back as the heel also and taker requested him

      • Noah

        Everybody wants Sting vs Undertaker.Undertaker is NOT coming back as a heel.He won’t be a heel again.Sting vs Undertaker would be alot better then Daniel Bryan vs Undertaker.

        • deez_bawlz

          Hardly. Daniel Bryan deserves it. Remember last year, it was either Vince or HHH, were talking about Bryan getting over in the biggest way possible? What would be bigger than him beating the streak at WM? Not saying that is what is going to happen, but if you can present any other scenarios that tie into storylines and make sense, please tell me so.

  • Peter Milano Whosoever

    calling it now: John Morrison…..

    • CJCarter

      Here’s hoping! Can’t always rely on Kofi for classic Rumble saves

  • Whatsupbb415

    New Age Outlaws (Please god why I know but it’ll prolly happen)
    Hall or Nash (HHH’s friends will be a plenty always)
    Jake The Snake (Jake wants this idk if he blew it with his silly comments)
    Chris Jericho
    Goldberg (longshot)

  • Vince The Man

    Every Year Barett makes a joke saying Papa Shango will be in the rumble.

  • Progressed_Now

    meh, chumpstains the lot of them, except for Bryan. Jimmy cracked corn and I STILL don’t care.

  • Gates

    I was born in Philly and lived there 25 years. Unless yer 100yrs old, 4hrs to Pittsburgh TOPS. Sheesh.

  • A Realist

    Every single last one of those suck with the exception of D Bry.

  • 5er

    Would be awesome if they could sneak Sting or Hulk Hogan in there. Or both.
    I think heads would literally explode in the crowd.

    • matthew

      that would be nice to see

    • Stephen Ayer A Ayers

      Literally? In that case, my friend, I sincerely hope that neither of them show up.

  • satishwarne708@y

    The biggest surprise will be Lesnar returning for the at rumble match,annihilate every one and secured his ticket for WM!Oops!

  • Benjamin

    Frankly, the guy I’m most excited for is Jimmy Wang Yang. He’s an excellent worker and always put on entertaining matches – a solid midcarder.

    • Michael Carter

      I was gonna post until I saw this comment. Jimmy Yang is amazing and so overlooked at the same time.

  • Ninjastar

    I hope undertaker shows up and throws out Batista , giving them a feud set up for WM30

  • G.I.R.L.

    Other than DBry, those are some awful choices. Definitely don’t want to see any of them in the ring.

  • Adam-Michael

    Jimmy Wang Yang?…. ERGH, NO THANKS

  • Dzon

    Goldberg! Goldberg! Goldberg!

  • G.I.R.L.

    Why would Wade forfeit his spot, his future, for someone who’s passed his prime years ago?

  • Reality

    No Jake? No ddt?

  • LueHaakon

    Barrett’s Papa Shango-schtick, so to speak, is hilarious.

  • TGov

    I wonder if Kane will put himself at #2 so he can actually face Punk, interesting…

  • astronautbutter

    RVD? Wasn’t he only going on a short hiatus? He’d be a great surprise at the Rumble.

  • SpankyHamm

    Search Wade Barrett and Papa Shango, and you will see similar comments from Barrett consistently over the past few years.

    This is his “Dennis Stamp is not booked” meme.

  • D_217

    It could be Big Daddy V taking Barrett’s spot….

  • Rob

    How cool would it be for Sting to come in and win the rumble and give up his title shot for a shot at the streak

    • Punk2k14

      not so cool well winning the rumble wouldn’t be and if that happened it would be silly winning the rumble is the start of the road to wrestlemania silly to give that up.

  • Mark Ventrice

    So again, no Evan Bourne?

  • Pozessed


  • Taylor

    Sting,Jeff hardy, would be awesome none that they mentioned I would care to see

    • Teter

      It is possible Jeff js not with tna but that’s rumored because he’s not allowed in Europe so idk

  • Buzzard Follower

    wade barret got kicked off damn wwe doesnt like him very much

  • FOLEY_is_GOD

    Papa Shango is not going to be in the Rumble. Wade Barrett has been teasing this the past couple of years.

  • Adam-Michael

    Poor Zack

  • Jason H.

    If they get bonuses for being on the PPV, Wade Barrett’s a better dude than most. I wouldn’t be putting over Godfather being in the Rumble if it meant it was costing me a check.

  • Sean

    I don’t get why Jimmy Wang Yang is being hyped up. Dude was nothing more then a cruiserweight title contender for a solid year and a half. Meanwhile you got Wade Barrett not even gonna be in the rumble. Crazy.

  • Some_Random_Guy

    Nice title for the article until you read the words “Here are some of the people who could be filling some of the 10 unannounced spots in the Rumble.” -_- REALLY???? You drew us in by making us believe you actually had info? How about adding the word “Possible” to the title?

  • VallinForever

    Xpac also wrote on twitter that it was “cold in Pittsburgh”

  • Casânøvä Wehbi

    haha , i actually had hope for jeff,….

  • Jason Krebs

    Little known fact: Batista used the Godsmack song “Voodoo” as his entrance theme for a while.

    • Tom Shelton

      Yeah in Ovw

  • Tom Shelton


  • number1bigdaddy
