The Undertaker, Michelle McCool, and Rey Mysterio will be in the building for WWE Royal Rumble 2024 this Saturday (27 January).

PWInsider Elite reports that word of Undertaker, McCool, and Mysterio's attendance at the premium live event was doing the rounds at last Friday's SmackDown tapings. Now, they'll likely be at Tampa, Florida's Tropicana Field for the first PLE of 2024.

There is currently no indication of any being involved in the broadcast. One would imagine Mysterio is the likeliest to make an appearance, given that of the three, he is the only one still down as an active in-ring performer. The lucha legend has been out of action since undergoing knee surgery back in November, when WWE wrote him off television through his feud with Santos Escobar.


McCool, meanwhile, has been a surprise entrant in the 2018, 2022, and 2023 women's Royal Rumbles.

The Undertaker hasn't wrestled since March 2020 and formally retired that November. He is running one of his '1 deadMan' live shows the night after the Rumble, ensuring that masochists and other people who hate themselves will be well catered for in Tampa this weekend.
