The unexpected participants who take part in the contests each year at the Royal Rumble premium live event are one of its biggest features. The names of some prospective competitors have started to surface this week. Nia Jax, a former WWE Superstar, may compete in this weekend’s Women’s Royal Rumble event, according to reports.
While Johnson wouldn’t promise she would be there, he made it apparent that he had heard something that gave him hope that she might show up this Saturday night. Since being let go by the organization in November 2021, the former RAW Women’s Champion hasn’t competed. She once had a slot on AOP’s Wrestling Entertainment Series in England but later cancelled the appearance.
The incident never happened, so in retrospect, this was a wise choice. When Nia Jax was asked recently on social media if she might go back to the squared circle, she replied with the amusing GIF “Sorry, wrong number.” The Rock is still the third-best betting favourite to win the men’s Royal Rumble bout this weekend. Despite the fact that talk of him appearing has somewhat diminished. The top three favourites by odds to win the 2023 Men’s Rumble match are shown below:
- 149 Cody Rhodes
- 188 Sami Zayn
- 200 The Stone
Monday Night Show’s 30th anniversary
It is obvious that The American Nightmare is the favourite to win this Saturday’s battle given how his profile has grown over the past month through numerous video packages. The RAW episode airing on January 23rd won’t feature Ronda Rousey. It not only serves as the final episode of the Royal Rumble 2023, but it also celebrates the Monday Night Show’s 30th anniversary. The Baddest Woman on the Planet was promoted for the 30th-anniversary episode.
It isn’t surprising given that the show also promoted other well-known athletes like Roman Reigns, Becky Lynch, Bobby Lashley, and Seth Rollins. Several days prior to the Royal Rumble, RAW is likely to feature a lot more action than SmackDown, which airs the day before. The initial promotion for Ronda Rousey was for the RAW episode airing on January 23, which will undoubtedly be one of the biggest WWE events of the year.
