Details on more names backstage at the Wells Fargo Center for tonight’s Royal Rumble PPV

Beginning in 2018, Wrestleview.com will return to monitoring and reporting on any stories making the rounds among the wrestling media. These stories will be clearly marked as a “rumor” (as highlighted in the image above) for reference.

We are told that Wade Barrett (Bad News Barrett) is on the script for tonight’s show and could either be involved in the Open Challenge during the Kickoff Show against WWE United States Champion Bobby Roode or the men’s Royal Rumble match.

Barrett parted ways with WWE back in May of 2016.

Dolph Ziggler (who may end up answering the Roode open challenge) Trish Stratus and Kelly Kelly were also spotted backstage according to PWInsider.com.
