Royal Rumble: Big Surprise Reportedly Planned, Former WWE Superstars Spotted In Phoenix

Twitter user @wrestlevotes is reporting that a ‘big’ surprise is being planned for this year’s Royal Rumble, “A “big” surprise may be in the plans Sunday at the Rumble, one that’s being kept from nearly everyone. However, I’m not going to leak it. Two reasons, 1. If it happens, everyone should have a genuine reaction to the moment & 2. WWE doesn’t even know if it’s going to work out yet.”

@wrestlevotes also notes that the surprise has nothing to do with Kenny Omega:

Mike Johnson of PW Insider reports that WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle is currently in Phoenix, Arizona participating in today’s Royal Rumble AXXESS event. Johnson also notes that there is no word yet, as to whether Angle will participate in the Royal Rumble. In a separate article, Johnson also added that former WWE Superstars Christian and Maryse were also spotted in Phoenix.
