2020 Royal Rumble Surprise Entrant Pool


Recommended Posts

  • Awards Moderator

It's my New Year's Day tradition! The Royal Rumble is on the 27th January, and it's time to make your wildest predictions for who might show up in the Men's or Women's Rumbles.

Last year had three winners: @bigfoote for Pete Dunne, @Loki for Rhea Ripley, @The King Of Swing for Io Shirai. Who will gain the honour of future-sight this year?


How to play

Pick three humans, aliens, animals or inanimate objects who you want to turn up in the Rumble!

You can just list their names, or if you want, include a picture and/or a brief description of what you think they'll do in the match.


The rules

You cannot pick any member of the active WWE rosters. This now includes NXT and NXT:UK - no members of those rosters are eligible.

Exceptions are (i) if the wrestler is currently out on long-term injury, (ii) if you change their gimmick (e.g. you give Ricochet an Irishman gimmick of Rick O'Shea) and (iii) if you live in a binary world and pick them for the opposite Rumble to their gender, i.e. Candice LeRae in the Men's match or R-Truth in the Women's.

Special attraction wrestlers like Goldberg, Undertaker or Cain Velazquez are eligible if they are not announced ahead of time.

Be specific with your gimmicks. If Mighty Molly appears but you picked Molly Holly, if doesn't count.

The deceased are allowed with the exception of the Boss Man.

Don't be boring.


That's it! Let's get ready to get excited about watching some people get ready to Rumble!

My picks



Vince McMahon has finally heard about that Kip/BG James team called V. K. M in TNA, but gets confused and assumes it's Ted Turner at work again. This is his great revenge. A. E. W. comes to the ring, gets piled on immediately, and then gets eliminated by Shorty G because it's very funny that a short person could achieve anything. WWE wins the Wednesday night war.




As a thank you for all his work on Smackers this year, Bruce Prichard has been given an entry into the Rumble match. Shorty G shoots on him but Love just hugs him over the top rope and out, eliminating himself on the process. Brother Love goes on to manage The Fiend at WrestleMania, but he takes off his jacket and nobody can see him because of the red lighting.




This is a serious one. I think it was Gail Kim's matches against Awesome Kong in TNA that really started the "women's evolution" in the USA and a spot in the Rumble is the least they could do for her in return.


Your go!

After the Spear at Summerslam, and the endless rumours on Twitter, it feels like there could be some fire to this smoke.

Considering how much I used to love him, it’s a shame there’s almost no matches or directions I’d be particularly interested in.



Lord knows they need something to make Wrestlemania feel special this year. Plus, I simply cannot let it go that we never got Lynch vs. Rousey one-on-one.


Because he was the best and he’s sorely, sorely missed.

I'll go Christian if he is allowed. He's never had a proper final retirement match, send him in for the pop. He's been hanging about now so possible Vince will throw him in the mix. 

Doesn't Gail Kim spend most of her day slating WWE on Twitter by the way?

I‚Äôm playing safe and picking ¬†Sheamus as my first pick under the ‚ÄėComing back from long-term injury‚Äô exception, seen as he‚Äôs been out since last Wrestlemania

Hurricane - because they’ve done it done before and pretended it was a big deal then

Could Austin do something to set up for something at whenever SaudiMania is? Fuck it, I’m picking him

Ryan Hewson. Cool Ry's WrestleXpress finally finds its spiritual home, no not Strangeways, Minute Maid Park. 

Sherri Hewson. Don't let Big Dave Batista know there is someone off Loose Women about, or it could lead to the biggest facial splattering since Taka Michinoku. 

Paul Hewson. Bono has disappeared so far up his own arse that when he heard that Edge might be making an appearance he thought he was invited as well.
