• Possible Huge Surprise Entrant In The Royal Rumble 2018 Match

During a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Live, Dave Meltzer & Bryan Alvarez noted that WWE officials have considered the idea of The Undertaker entering the Men’s Royal Rumble 2018 match as a surprise entrant.

While Meltzer couldn’t confirm this plan, the idea of “The Deadman” entering the Royal Rumble match and starting his feud with John Cena has been thrown around.

The Undertaker entered the Royal Rumble match last year and was eliminated by Roman Reigns.

As we noted before, the build-up to the Cena-Taker match was expected to begin at Raw 25. However, The Undertaker just ended up doing a promo, while Cena ended up working an angle with Elias.

Cena was scheduled to work a “filler” feud with Samoa Joe between now and WrestleMania 34 (as The Undertaker wouldn’t be around every week and they certainly won’t do angles for their WrestleMania 34 match every week from now till Mania). This feud would’ve been similar to what Roman Reigns & Braun Strowman did last year before WrestleMania 33.

However, with Samoa Joe getting injured, Elias will be taking Joe’s spot in that filler feud with Cena. This feud will also be played out during the Men’s Royal Rumble 2018 match and that’s the reason why Cena ended up doing an angle with Elias on Raw 25 (as WWE officials thought that was the only time to do angle between the two before the Royal Rumble PPV).

The Cena-Taker feud is expected to begin soon.
