WWE’s Royal Rumble event is coming up on Saturday, January 29th and fans can’t wait to see what happens. Some of those fans take wild guesses at what Vince McMahon’s company has planned. There is also a “leaked” Royal Rumble order, complete with results, going around. We have to debunk one of the more popular “leaks” making its way around the Internet Wrestling Community.

A Royal Rumble chart has been going around for a couple days now and it started to pick up steam. We tried to ignore this at first, but it seems some fans have bought into its legitimacy.

Ringside News has confirmed with a tenured member of the creative team that this “leaked” Royal Rumble plan going around is “complete bullsh*t.”

As you can see in the image below, there are a couple of red flags in these results. Alberto Del Rio’s participation is an even bigger clue than Moose winding up on that list. WWE is working with Impact Wrestling to bring in Mickie James, so Moose is actually more believable than ADR. After all, WWE has absolutely no interest in bringing back Mexico’s Greatest Export.

Also, Shane McMahon and Bad Bunny are not listed in this chart. Ringside News exclusively reported that both of those men are slated to be in this year’s Royal Rumble match.

You can check out the graphic below to see the results that are floating around. They are not legit, but it’s still fun to take a peek at some really interesting fantasy booking.

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.
