• Comedy Spot Nixed For Men’s Royal Rumble 2021

According to the Wrestling Observer, RAW wrestler Angel Garza was originally scheduled to enter the Men’s Royal Rumble 2021 match and do a comedy spot, but that plan got nixed at the last minute.

Garza was scheduled to enter the match, rip his pants off (which he usually does) and then get immediately eliminated from the match.

No word on why this angle got pulled. Otis ended up replacing Garza in the match.

Otis entered the match at entry #20 and lasted only 53 seconds in the match. King Corbin eliminated Otis.
