WWE is set to present one of the most exhilarating pay-per-views of the year, the Royal Rumble. The 2023 edition of the show will feature a stacked match card along with the traditional Royal Rumble matches for Men and Women. Although the fans might be expecting a lot of surprise returns at the event, reports suggest that a lot of new WWE signees are also at the sight of the Rumble event.

The new WWE signees are a part of their program called WWE NIL, Next in line. The program was started in late 2021, in which WWE recruits and develop future stars through partnerships with aspiring collegiate athletes.

WWE has already signed two classes of the NIL program since its inception. The company announced its third class of NIL signees earlier this week. It was revealed that 15 collegiate names have joined the program.

Some notable names from the NIL program include Olympic Gold Medalist Gable Steveson and the Cavinder Twins. Moreover, it is reported that several WWE NIL signees will be present at the Alamodome in San Antonio this weekend.

According to a report by PW Insider, at least 7-10 NIL WWE signees are scheduled to be in town for the Royal Rumble event on January 28th. However, it is unclear at the moment which names will be attending the show. It also wasn’t noted how they will be used, if at all, during the show.

However, the report also indicated that some of the names from the recent class of the WWE NIL program will be the ones in attendance. Tune in to the WWE Royal Rumble event, this Saturday, January 28th taking place at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. We will have full coverage here at Ringside News.
