EXCLUSIVE: SPOILER Update On Royal Rumble Surprises

Nick Paglino

With other websites now confirming my exclusive story from earlier regarding Kevin Nash being a surprise entry into the Royal Rumble, WrestleZone.com can now follow up with more information on the situation.

Kevin Nash IS confirmed to return to the WWE tomorrow night as a surprise entrant into the Royal Rumble.  Additionally, according to one source close to Nash, he has died his hair jet black again which is leading to speculation that he may be using his "Diesel" gimmick again.  However, that is not confirmed at this point.

Furthermore, sources within TNA told us today that Kevin Nash did in fact sign a new contract to return to their company earlier this month, but he backed out of the deal as recently as this past week.  Some sites are reporting that Nash reneged on the deal due to his belief that TNA office members leaked the story to the media and Nash was unhappy about it.  Others are saying it was simply because WWE finally made him any offer.

We have not confirmed at this point whether Kevin Nash’s appearance at the Rumble is a one-shot deal or whether this is the start of a long-term agreement between both parties.

Either way, expect Kevin Nash (ala Diesel potentially) to return to the WWE tomorrow night on pay per view.  That is, unless Vince McMahon nixes these plans simply because the "dirt sheets" spoiled the surprise.
