The countdown for the WWE Royal Rumble 2017 has already begun with only five days to go. What makes the competition even more interesting is the participation of Goldberg and some surprise entries.

Momentum is building up for one of the important sporting events of the year. There is no doubt that Goldberg’s confirmation to participate in the event will delight the fans even more.

Goldberg’s Appearance in WWE Raw

On Monday night, Goldberg was seen in WWE Raw. No doubt he intended to do some final buildup for one of the biggest events of the year, Bleacher Report noted. The star emerged before an overenthusiastic crowd and shared his plans for winning the Universal Championship.

Royal Rumble has been such an important annual event of WWE since way back in 1988. Over the years it has been one of the year’s biggest shows ranking just next to Wrestlemania in terms of mass popularity.

According to Metro, there are 18 entrants who have already confirmed their participation in Royal Rumble 2017. Some of the big names apart from Goldberg include The Undertaker, The Miz, Braun Strowman and Randy Orton.

There May Be Some Surprise Entries

Fans know how good WWE is in giving surprises to them at the last moment. Even this time around they can expect a few surprise names to appear in the final list. However, speculations are rife that those surprise entries could be superstars like Finn Balor and Samoa Joe among others.

Balor is being tipped to be a favorite for winning the WWE Royal Rumble this year, though his entry is still unofficial. However, he has not been very active due to his injuries after being declared as the first WWE Universal Champion.

Similarly, Joe’s name also features high in the betting scene. He is expected to join the event too though nothing is confirmed yet.

Royal Rumble 2017 takes place on Sunday, January 29. It will begin at midnight UK time and will be shown live on Sky Sports Box Office for £19.95.
