WWE Hypes The Rock For Rumble
It’s now 99% clear that The Rock will appear at tonight’s Royal Rumble as the official WWE Twitter account re-tweeted Rock’s Tweet about being in Philadelphia and ran a story on WWE.com about the Tweet.
Could The Great One have business in Philadelphia beyond the Rumble, perhaps involving one of his upcoming blockbuster film releases? As the WWE Universe knows, the Royal Rumble Match is known for its surprise entrants and there would be no such appearance greater than the former WWE Champion, himself. Will we see The Rock appear as one of those possible surprises?
Or perhaps he has something else planned for the event if he does indeed show up? Does The People’s Champion perhaps have unfinished business with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar that Rock will look to resolve live tonight in Philly?
Lana also got in on the action:
WWE Confirms Justin Gabriel Release
WWE.com has now confirmed the departure of Justin Gabriel, who quit the company yesterday. He’s already taking independent bookings:
“WWE has come to terms on the release Justin Gabriel effective as of today.”
RVD Is In California?
RVD says he won’t be at the Royal Rumble, and instead will be chilling in California. It’s been suggested that the company want an ECW original to appear because they’re in Philadelphia. If it’s not RVD then Tommy Dreamer would seem logical since he has such a good relationship with the company, but he’s denied it on Twitter.
