WWE has included NXT Superstars in the Royal Rumble in the past. They have never received the kind of attention like they do now. WWE is planning accordingly for the Royal Rumble.

Bryan Alvarez said on Wrestling Observer Live that WWE was planning to include NXT Superstars in the Royal Rumble. It might be unlikely that an NXT Superstar will win the big match, but they will get an honest shot.

“The idea for the Royal Rumble and god only knows if things could change and they could change a lot more depending on if AEW is winning or losing at that point, but… the plan was Royal Rumble men’s and women’s will be thirty spots. 10 spots going to Raw. 10 spots to SmackDown. 10 spots to NXT. That was the plan.”

NXT Superstars will be in town for the Worlds Collide event. There is no TakeOver event before the Royal Rumble next year. The Royal Rumble is always an exciting time and it looks like WWE is gearing up to make sure that NXT gets plenty of attention.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
