WWE has pulled out all the stops when it comes to the women’s Royal Rumble. Of course it is because they have depleted their women’s division down to the bare bones, but even so they have brought back a number of former star to make their returns at the Royal Rumble.
With Ronda Rousey one of the biggest names set to return during the match, WWE has also had other former talents taking part in the Rumble.
Former WWE superstar Lana is the latest name rumoured to be appearing in the Royal Rumble. Lana was released by WWE in 2020 and it is rumoured WWE is interested in bringing her in to WWE for the event, according to the latest reports from Fightful.
It was expected that Lana was to join AEW after her WWE released. Her husband Miro was released by WWE in 2020 and signed for AEW shortly after, and fans expected her to join him in the promotion. He has made reference to her in his promos, mentioning his “Double Jointed Wife”.
Lana has not been seen around town in St Louis where the Royal Rumble is taking place. However, that does not mean that she will not be in the Royal Rumble, but her participation is only speculation for the time being.
Another name being rumoured to return in the Royal Rumble is Jillian Hall. The former Diva’s Champion made a surprise return at the 2021 Royal Rumble, and was reportedly at rehearsals for the event this week. She is not currently advertised for the match.
Hamish is a writer and podcaster and wrestling fan who is a key part of the Atletifo team.
After playing countless hours of WrestleMania X8 on the Gamecube, he discovered Rey Mysterio getting his head crushed by The Great Khali, and thus a love for professional wrestling was born.
He is also a Media Graduate, as well as writing for multiple sites about Premier League football and the culture of Wales – his home country.
