• 3 Possible Surprise Entrants For Royal Rumble 2021, Brock Lesnar, John Cena & Ronda Rousey’s Status
According to the Wrestling Observer, Brock Lesnar and Ronda Rousey aren’t scheduled for this Sunday’s WWE Royal Rumble 2021 pay-per-view.
Lesnar isn’t under a WWE contract right now and Rousey is under contract till April 10th (which is the first night of WrestleMania 37).
John Cena isn’t scheduled for the PPV either. He’s currently in Vancouver, Canada to film the Peacemaker spin-off series.
Speaking of the Royal Rumble, the following 3 names could very well be surprise entrants in the Men’s & Women’s Royal Rumble 2021 matches:
– Seth Rollins
– Damian Priest
– Rhea Ripley
Rollins has been on a hiatus for a couple of months now. He recently became a father and is at home to help Becky Lynch with their new born child. He was last seen on WWE programming at Survivor Series 2020. WWE On FOX accidentally advertised him for the January 1st episode of SmackDown, but later deleted their tweet.
On the other hand, Priest & Ripley have been rumored to debut on the WWE main roster for a while now.
Original plan was for Priest to debut on SmackDown a few weeks back and get involved in the Roman Reigns – Kevin Owens storyline, but that plan got scrapped and word going on now is that Priest will join the RAW brand.
Ripley is also expected to join RAW.
