Simple question, who do you want to see as a surprise entrant in this year's Royal Rumble? Forget if you think it's an actual possibility at all, who do you want to see make an appearance?
I know, they can't get the original Doink because he sadly died last year, but I always pop for the character. That's Brooklyn Brawler as Doink pictured above the last time Doink made an appearance, he looks good in the role. The crowd would probably actually pop for this, too.
Every time this guy shows up it's as his Godfather gimmick, and I couldn't care less any time he shows his face. If he showed up as Papa Shango though, I'd mark like crazy. Wade Barrett always jokes that Shango will be entering on Twitter every year, and the first time he teased it I actually got super excited because I thought maybe it could be true but unfortunately it wasn't. I know it probably wouldn't get too much of a reaction, but I'd fucking love it.
Let's just get Parts Unknown's entire population in there. Seriously though, I think he'd get a huge reaction and he's still in great shape for his age so he'd look pretty good. I'd be far more excited for an appearance from this guy than Hogan. It'd be fresher to see Warrior, he's been off WWE television for much longer than the Hulkster, but he's someone every wrestling fan remembers just as vividly.
I miss this guy. I wish those terrorist attacks in London didn't fuck him over. The guy had huge heat and could talk and was a decent wrestler. I'd love to see him return, starting in a Rumble match. Hell, have Daivari walk him down to the ring as his manager while you're at it.
It's about time for Jericho's annual "come back in time for the huge Wrestlemania paycheck" return. Would love to see him show up come Sunday. And this one is actually the first one that seems possible.
Admittedly, if he got a spot in the Rumble it wouldn't be as cool now since he just appeared on RAW a few weeks back, but I'd be game for a Jake appearance just to see another interaction between him and Ambrose ending with Dean getting the snake put on him again. Then while Roberts plays to the crowd Ambrose can get up and toss him out.
If I think of more I'd like to see I'll post them. Until then, who would you like to see show up on Sunday, even if it was just a one-off thing and not a full fledged return?
