WWE: These 5 women could be surprise entrants at Royal Rumble 2021
First Published Jan 14, 2021, 5:08 PM IST
World Wrestling entertainment would host its maiden Pay-Per-View of the year, Royal Rumble, on January 31st. It would be the 34th edition of the event and held behind closed doors for the first time. It would conduct its themed 30-man and 30-woman Rumble match.
As a new year has kicked in, the pro-wrestling leader, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is looking to put on another spectacular year. It all starts with the opening Pay-Per-View (PPV) of the year, Royal Rumble.
Just like always, the event would see a 30-man and 30-woman Rumble match. The winners would become the number one contender for the World Championship at WrestleMania 37.
Over the years, the Rumble has been famous for surprise appearances by some current and former superstars. On the same note, we predict the five surprise entrants for the women's Rumble.
Eva Marie: She happens to be a former WWE superstar, who parted ways almost five years back, to focus on her modelling career. Nonetheless, there have been reports that she could be on her way back. It could not be a better platform to make her comeback other than the Rumble. But, it would be interesting to see how fans welcome her. She was booed heavily during her previous stint, mainly for her tendency to botch her moves and injure fellow superstars.
Melina: The former Women's champion wrestled her last for WWE in 2011. Although she has been associated with WWE on a part-time basis, she hasn't wrestled in a WWE ring following her release. She has recently been a part of WWE legends reunion, implying that she could be on for a surprise return to the company. In case she happens to be a surprise entrant at the Rumble this year, she is sure to receive a huge pop, as fans have been dying to see her split entrance once again.
Victoria: She was a part of the women's division when Lita and Trisha Stratus dominated the department, as she failed to gain similar success like her. Nonetheless, she was one of the most gifted wrestlers in the industry, as she did scale higher success outside WWE. While she hasn't returned to WWE since her release in 2009, besides announcing her retirement in 2019, reports said that she was supposed to be a surprise entrant at the Rumble last year. Nonetheless, since it did not happen last year, it sure can this year, as fans would be delighted to see her once again.
Tessa Blanchard: The prolific wrestler has been out of a job since last year after leaving Impact Wrestling midway during her World Championship reign. While her father, Tully, is associated with rival All Elite Wrestling (AEW), reports are high that she could be on her way to WWE. Although she should have made her debut by now already, WWE might have preserved her for the significant Rumble, judging by the magnitude of a superstar she is. Provided she does make her surprise debut; she would definitely be a firm favourite to win the event.
Ronda Rousey: The former UFC Bantamweight Champion and a former WWE Women's Champion, Ronda Rousey has been conspicuous by her absence, ever since she lost her title at WrestleMania 35 to Becky Lynch. While reports stated that she was considering a break from the sport to start a family, she hasn't progressed on that part yet. With that being said, rumours say that it could be about time for her to make a comeback, by making a surprise entrance at the Rumble. While it would be good to see her again, it would have been even great had Becky been around.
