One of the most exciting events of the year is the Royal Rumble, specifically the Royal Rumble match itself. The Rumble is like nothing else in professional wrestling and is oftentimes the kick start for many of the biggest storylines heading into WrestleMania season.
However, something as if not more buzz worthy than the outcome of the match is the surprise of a returning or debuting superstar in the 30 man field. In 2008, Some fans (this writer included) burst into tears when John Cena shocked us all as the 30th entrant and won the whole thing. Before that, watching Jimmy Snuka and Roddy Piper renew their historic rivalry was something that nobody saw coming.
Flash forward to last year and the world was shocked to see AJ Styles come out at number three as the man few thought would ever step foot in a WWE ring finally made his epic debut.
Each year, there is no shortage of rumors regarding who fans think will be appearing in the Royal Rumble. Here are 10 many are hoping to see when the countdown hits zero and the buzzer sounds in Alamdome on 29 January.
