ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – The WWE’s annual Royal Rumble is expected to be an eventful night, with numerous rumors circulating ahead of the premium live event on Jan. 27.
One of the most talked-about rumors involves Jordynne Grace, who is rumored to be entering the Women’s Rumble and will use her TNA theme while being introduced as the “Knockouts World champion.” There is also speculation that she could be the “off the wall surprise” that WWE has been teasing.
Another rumor suggests that Jade Cargill may make her in-ring debut in the Women’s Rumble. Reports indicate that she was present at a rehearsal for the match, sparking further speculation about her potential involvement.
In an effort to keep the element of surprise, WWE deliberately refrained from announcing many names for this year’s Rumble matches, leaving room for unexpected appearances. This strategy was intended to set the stage for surprise returns, including one planned for Brock Lesnar.
However, sources indicate that Lesnar may not be present at the live event, leading to speculation about a possible replacement. Additionally, NXT talents Blair Davenport, Tiffany Stratton, and Carmelo Hayes are said to be in attendance at the venue, adding fuel to the rumor mill.
Furthermore, CM Punk’s Instagram post featuring a woman who bears a resemblance to his wife has sparked speculation of a possible surprise return by AJ Lee. Similarly, Sonya Deville’s recent training for a comeback from injury has led to rumors of her potential appearance at the event.
As speculations continue to swirl, fans are eagerly anticipating the Royal Rumble, where these rumors may either come to fruition or be dispelled. While these rumors should be taken with a grain of salt, they undoubtedly add an extra layer of excitement to the highly anticipated event.
