It is 2024, and WWE is making their preparations for the first premium live event of the year. The Royal Rumble is just on the horizon to kick off the Road to WrestleMania. The show is set to take place at Tropicana Field in Tampa, Florida. The PLE will obviously feature two Royal Rumble matches. Now, Becky Lynch and Shinsuke Nakamura have announced themselves for their respective matches this year.

The Man and the King of Strong Style have declared to be part of their respective Rumble matches. This was announced during the WWE Preview Special 2024. Both Lynch and Nakamura have achieved victory in their careers. The two stars have been on a roll, and their addition to the Rumble match has surely elevated the already star-studded field.

Becky Lynch won the Women’s Royal Rumble match in 2019. Later on, she also main-evented WrestleMania, becoming a double champion. As for Shinsuke, he won the Royal Rumble match in 2018. Following his victory, he challenged AJ Styles for a match at WrestleMania 34. It is possible that the two stars might give the fans a ‘deja vu’ moment this year by emerging victorious.

As of now, Cody Rhodes and CM Punk have announced themselves for the men’s Royal Rumble match. Besides, Bayley and Nia Jax have also declared themselves for the match. The stage is getting set for the show. The fans are all amped up for the matches. It is turning out to be engrossing to see how and who is going to win the Rumble match, with no outright favorite for 2024’s edition.

Another former Royal Rumble winner Rey Mysterio is set to return ahead of the PLE

The time for WrestleMania season is set to arrive in WWE. This is a time when each superstar looks to have a place on the card. Recently, it was informed that WWE legend Rey Mysterio is set to return to SmackDown after suffering a knee injury in late 2023.

Mysterio has been out of action ever since the attack by Santos Escobar. The Master of 619 then underwent knee surgery afterward. Moreover, his last match was against Logan Paul at Crown Jewel, where he dropped the United States Championship. Rey might return to WWE programming for the special New Year’s Revolution episode of SmackDown this week.

It is going to be interesting to see the return of the Legendary Luchador in WWE. He has some unfinished business with his former protégé, Escobar. With the Royal Rumble ahead, there is a high possibility of seeing explosive action on SmackDown this week.
