wwe royal rumbleWWE Royal Rumble will be on January 25th fron the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. is reporting that WWE is considering a surprise entrant that is an ECW Original. This would make sense since ECW’s home was in Philadelphia. 

Itami and Balor as a Team

There have been some discussions of having Hideo Itami and Finn Balor make a run at the NXT Tag Team Titles before having singles runs in NXT. 

Finn Balor, as rumored previously, did not want to stay in NXT for too long. This was one of the conversations he had and agreements before signing with WWE. 

Isenberg: I am not sure what ECW original they could have planned. Some of them are currently working with TNA, while guys like Sabu and The Sandman seem illogical. They could always get the surprise pop for Rob Van Dam. Personally, I think Bully Ray being a surprise entrant would be a great surprise.
