After WWE world champion AJ Styles had made a shocking debut during last year's event, many expect a ton of surprise entrants, comebacks and debuts this Sunday.
Perhaps the most talked about wrestler in the world right now, Omega is fresh off competing in one of the greatest matches of all time on January 4th in Tokyo against Kazuchika Okada for NJPW.
Other confirmed names at the Rumble include Big E, Chris Jericho, Braun Strowman, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose.
Hulk Hogan: Already TMZ has revealed a video of Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle that she is not participating in the Royal Rumble 2017 event. The victor over the rope who lasts long will be the WWE World Champion and he will get the chance to compete for glory the WWE World Championship at the WrestlersMania.
However, this is the professional wrestling business, and as we're always reminded over and over in some capacity - never say never, and anything can happen. Austin's profile was made that much larger and led to the legendary submission/"I Quit" match against Bret Hart at Wrestlemania 13.
This year's WWE Royal Rumble is one of the most wide open in the history of the popular pay-per-view event.
As the Royal Rumble approaches, predictions are going to roll in about who will win the historic match.
I also find it quite odd that WWE wouldn't have AJ Styles be the Champion at least heading into WrestleMania.
This year's rumble is one of the most exciting ones in recent memory. Before the Wrestlemania matches, this would be the first real epic encounter between the men since their 1997 Hell in a Cell match and it was glorious. The two nights following the Rumble, the Wells Fargo Center will be the home of WWE's weekly shows Monday Night Raw and Smackdown Live! That was one of the biggest turning points of his career from high potential superstar to regular main eventer.
Do YOU want to write for GiveMeSport? Brock Lesnar and Goldberg too will be part of the event and will meet in a match since Survivor Series where Goldberg defeated Brock Lesnar. If everything goes there way Wrestlemania night they could deliver an all out classic, putting their bodies on the line.
Undertaker, Goldberg, and Lesnar aren't the only people to be excited about this Sunday at the Royal Rumble.
