The Royal Rumble is just weeks away and as WWE prepares for the big January 26th event NXT should be getting ready as well. World’s Collide will take place in Houston before the Royal Rumble, but there could be another reason for NXT Superstars to be in town.
This year’s Royal Rumble matches could consist of 10 Superstars from RAW, SmackDown, and NXT battling in the ring. Thanks to a new video from WWE On Fox we have a pretty good idea which NXT Superstars are likely.
An extremely fast slideshow video was uploaded where fans could click the pause button and a screenshot of that Superstar would presumably will be their choice for Royal Rumble winner. There were a lot of NXT Superstars featured among the RAW and SmackDown wrestlers.
Finn Balor, Matt Riddle, WALTER, Tyler Breeze, Pete Dunne, Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Keith Lee and Kyle O’Reilly were featured. This could be a very telling sign of who’s on top of NXT’s list to make a Royal Rumble appearance.
We’ll have to see who shows up in Houston. If someone competes might also depend on whether they’re banged up from World’s Collide on the previous night.
