• WWE Veteran Confirms He Won’t Enter The 2023 Royal Rumble Match
‘The Masterpiece’ Chris Masters wrestled for WWE from 2005 until 2007 and again from 2009 till 2011, but also worked for IMPACT Wrestling between 2015 and 2018, before he signed with Billy Corgan’s National Wrestling Alliance in 2021.
The WWE Ruthless Aggression Era Veteran recently claimed he wanted to confront Bobby Lashley, whom he briefly had an on-screen rivalry with during his first WWE run, and teased that such a confrontation could take place at this year’s Royal Rumble.
However, Chris Masters took to Twitter and confirmed that he is currently not booked to be a surprise entrant in this year’s 30-man Royal Rumble match.
Here’s what The Masterpiece tweeted:
“Sorry to say I have not been contacted for The Rumble and will almost certainly not be taking part at this point.”
