WWE Royal Rumble 2020: 10 Surprise Entrants We Could See

10. Goldberg


Lord knows how many more appearances the 53-year-old has left in the tank, but last year's report that WWE wanted to keep using Goldberg as a sporadic "bad*ss old man" character who shows up only when somebody needs to get the piss kicked out of them means he could show up on 26 January.

That Goldberg still looks like he could batter most living people to within an inch of their life makes him credible in most in-ring scenarios. In the Rumble, all he'd have to do is show up, hit a spear and a Jackhammer, get the building buzzing, and potentially set something up for later down the line - if he's so inclined.

Said "later down the line" option could be Matt Riddle, a frequent critic of Goldberg's throughout 2019. The duo got into it face-to-face a few months ago and the sheer weirdness of seeing these two confront each other in the Rumble is an enticing prospect. Bridge this into a victory over the former WCW squash merchant, and WWE would have a solid way to introduce 'The Original Bro' to main roster audiences.


A caffeine-dependent life-form from the frozen wastes of north east Scotland. He once tried to start a revolution but didn't print enough pamphlets, so hardly anyone turned up. Give him a follow @andyhmurray. You'll have a great time. Maybe.
