The 2021 Royal Rumble takes place January 31st 2021 and will officially set off the highly anticipated WrestleMania season. WWE production is currently kicking into high gear and the creative department are actively designing the Men’s Royal Rumble match as you read this.
RAW and SmackDown superstars are being chosen to compete and a few names from the NXT roster have also been discussed to make surprise appearances.
Goldberg is the big return for this year’s men’s Royal Rumble match and WWE is looking to prevent the star from jumping ship to AEW on TNT and bring Dynamite even closer to RAW in ratings as we recently saw Sting join All Elite Wrestling.
The winner of 2021 Men’s Royal Rumble match is currently circling around a handful of top names at the moment and they are as follows.
• Goldberg: “Who’s next?” very well might be the 2021 Royal Rumble match itself.
• Brock Lesnar: The beast has not been seen since WrestleMania 36 after dropping the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre. A return is in order and WWE has been keeping him under wraps for the big push towards WrestleMania season.
• Edge: The rated r superstar winning the Royal Rumble would be a exciting time for fans and another WWE Championship for Edge would be a fitting end to his legendary career.
• Daniel Bryan: Bryan is closing in to the end of his career and with 2021 being his possible final year as an active wrestler, WWE is discussing Daniel Bryan to go for gold once again.
• Big E: The newly minted Intercontinental Champion is flying high into 2021 and a Royal Rumble win would be the next progressive step towards greatness.
• Keith Lee: The limitless one is ready to breakthrough the next level. Recent rumors of mandatory re-training have been speculated but our sources assured us that it was not a major factor and the fact remains that WWE does have plans to push Keith Lee and if the stars align we could be basking in the glory of a Kieth Lee Royal Rumble win.
These are the six most discussed stars being brought up in internal creative meetings to win the 2021 Men’s Royal Rumble match and with Vince McMahon making the final decision expect many twist and turns on the road to WrestleMania 37. Stay tuned to SW for the latest updates.
