Megastar scheduled for a surprise return at WWE Royal Rumble 2021. The pay per view is a hotbed of comebacks and debuts.
The Royal Rumble is just days away now. Several stars have already announced their participation but there are still many spots left to be filled. Speculations are rife regarding which wrestlers will make a return and who will debut at the event.
So far, we only have confirmation on Edge’s Royal Rumble status. The R-Rated Superstar announced his participation on this week’s episode of WWE RAW. But he may not be the only huge return at this year’s event. There is another, who could be on his way back this weekend.

Dave Meltzer noted on the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Seth Rollins’ return was hinted a couple of weeks ago. Since that hasn’t happened though, he has speculated that the Friday Night Saviour may eventually return at the Rumble itself.
“Fewer spots are announced than ever before, leading to expectation of surprises,” Meltzer wrote. “One would expect Seth Rollins to return, since he was supposed to weeks ago and suddenly that changed without explanation.”
Seth Rollins has been out of the WWE since sacrificing himself at Survivor Series last year. He took a break to be with his fiancé Becky Lynch and celebrate the birth of their child. The couple welcomed their baby last month and it seems that the Messiah is now gearing towards a comeback.
Rollins was drafted to SmackDown last year. He became a regular on the Blue Brand for the first time in his career having spent all of his career on RAW since the brand split back in 2016. However, he took a break before we could see his character properly utilised on Friday Nights.
It will be interesting to see how SmackDown uses him and what his direction will be heading towards Wrestlemania now that he’s seemingly done with Murphy and the Mysterio family.
