We are only 5 days away from the 2015 Royal Rumble and the rumors from every active internet site that carries a WWE theme will continue to
build momentum. The question is which ones are credible and which ones are
trash. As I just wrote that last line, I can see many of the notorious thread seekers
getting ready to type away with a few mentions of the sites and writers we are
all too familiar with. The only thing I can say to that is rumors are rumors
and are only credible if documented. Since most information is rarely certified,
the best way to sort out the talk is common sense. What makes sense and what
If you look at the pattern of the last several years, most
surprise entrants are usually legends with no allegiance to a current storyline.
They are simply there for a cheap pop, make a few eliminations, and then head
back to their rocking chair. Sometimes wrestlers make their appearance as a surprise
entry as they recover from injury, ala John Cena at MSG in 2008 and possibly
Sheamus this year. It is still a shame they brought Daniel Bryan back on an announced
show instead of bringing him back as a surprise entrant, especially if the
plans are for him to win. It surely worked for Cena that year, and it definitely
would have worked for Bryan. I know he doesn’t
need the push, but the scene in Philadelphia would have been electric.
As far as this year is concerned, there have been numerous
rumors like Sting, Randy Orton (Comeback), Kevin Nash, DDP, RVD, and The Dudley
Boyz. Obviously, these are just rumors, not factual information and more names
will continue to circulate. The one name out of that bunch that excites me is
the Dudley Boyz, but not as surprise entrants in the big match. I would much
rather they come back for an electrifying tables match, but with whom? Who
could compete with them enough to make it exciting?
The two spent a decent amount of time with TNA having successful
tag team careers before they decided to go into a singles run. Ray decided to
slim down for a TNA title run and branded the name Bully Ray. In my opinion, this
was one of the highlights of his career on his way to becoming a 2-time TNA
Campion. Bully Ray mentioned in
interviews even as TNA World Champion that if WWE Chairman Vince McMahon wanted
to have him back in WWE, he would jump at the chance. Now don’t read too much
into that as this is a business and that could have been leverage in order to
get a better contract with TNA.
Ray and D-Von have remained in great shape, giving them a
perfect opportunity to come back for a short run like the New Age Outlaws did a
while back. They could definitely be used in some facet to push the younger tag
teams in the ring and help rebuild the division as well. This would be a good
way to promote some good old-fashioned table matches against the Authority,
which could make for some great TV. Let’s see the “Authoritative Stephanie” slammed
through a table as a curtain call for Team 3D.
Will it all happen? Your guess is as good as mine. I just
hope they put a little more thought into these entrants instead of just sending
wrestlers out for the nostalgia factor. All that will do is lead to a bunch of
ridiculous articles about how DDP is going to make one last title run or Diesel
is going to be legitimate again. Let’s be sensible people, please! I’d actually
prefer for them to include some of the current NXT stars to the match and
actually make them relevant, not just an easy elimination.
While a Team 3D return is just a random rumor, I would thoroughly
enjoy the excitement if it were to happen. I would enjoy it even better if The Hardy Boyz
came back as well and we could witness a totally unexpected tag team match. Now
that would be best for business. Are there any other wrestlers you think could
make a legitimate impact? What are your thoughts on Team 3D making an impact?
