They have a plan. We are a week away from the Royal Rumble and WWE is going to need to do something special for the show. The Royal Rumble is a show with a lot of built in advantages as the show’s namesake matches allow for multiple surprises. Planning those out can be difficult but WWE has already started, albeit in a way that you might not be expecting.

According to Fightful Select, while WWE is planning surprises for the Royal Rumble, the company is leaning towards “non-traditional surprises”. It is not entirely clear what that means, but WWE has been going against the idea of having veterans come in for a spot in the Royal Rumble matches. As of Friday night, 15/30 men and 6/30 women have been announced for their respective matches.

The Royal Rumble has had some great surprises. Check out some of the better ones:

Opinion: This could go either way, but I’m curious to see what WWE has planned. Bringing in some surprises can be a good thing, but they do not all need to be serious. Sometimes it’s nice to have something there for comic relief or even nostalgia. WWE has the history to make something like that work and can bring in a host of people, so it would be great if they got a bit more creative this time around.
