WWE Bringing In Major Names for Royal Rumble? 

WWE announced that next year’s Royal Rumble event will be taking place at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. This will be the 20th anniversary of the 1997 Royal Rumble at the Alamodome when Shawn Michaels won the WWE Title from Psycho Sid.

With the Alamodome being able to seat around 65,000 fans, the company will need a big name on the card to help push ticket sales. While Shawn Michaels has retired from in-ring competition, there is a good possibly that WWE may use him in some sort of fashion at the event.

Another name that WWE could possibly use at the event is “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, given his ties with the state of Texas. The downside to using Austin is he was hurt at last year’s WrestleMania, and the company probably wouldn’t want to risk doing anything very physical with him.

In regards to The Undertaker and his ties with Texas, at last word he was telling people his match at WrestleMania 32 was his last, so the chances of him being used for promotion is next to none.

If WWE decides to use either of these men, it would be in a small role and nothing major. They could use them for a special guest referee for a top match, or an enforcer role of sorts.
