The 2018 Royal Rumble may only be a few days away, but WWE still have much work to do ahead of the big event, having filled just 17 of 30 spots in the titular men's match.
A handful of new names will likely be announced via social media over the coming days, with the last few spots reserved for the kind of surprises that define the Rumble. They've been slow to complete the lineup, but WWE still have plenty of options on the table, and if they go all out, they'll build a field stacked with serious star power.
Before we speculate on who may appear, let's run through who won't.

The likes of Samoa Joe, Jeff Hardy Big Cass, and Dean Ambrose won't return from injury until long after the event. Goldberg? Don't get your hopes up.
The next few days will be rife with rumours and speculation on who's going to show up, so let's take a stab at how WWE will fill this year's Royal Rumble...
