Sharing my thoughts, opinion, and historical facts on everything WWE both past and present
Back to Blog
Earlier this week we heard about four major signings from the Indies all heading to the company as they have become official WWE stars. One of those names is top female competitor Candice LeRae who was a major player in companies like PWG & Beyond Wrestling. Candice is also actually the wife of Johnny Gargano and much like her husband she may have a big weekend on January 28. For one reason or another signing with the WWE in the month of January normally brings about some interesting possibilities for new talent as it opens the door for them being a part of the Royal Rumble.
For the first time ever this years Rumble event will not just have a Rumble match for the men as we will also have a match for the Women. This means that considering the WWE don't have enough women on the current roster to fill up a 30 women Rumble match they need some new faces in their as well. I mentioned this last week when I spoke about Candice & Ricochet signing with WWE that I thought Candice could appear at the Rumble. Even though I do have doubts if she would be allowed to skip NXT I don't think she needs to as she could just appear in the match, and then go down to NXT following the event, sort of like just coming up as a surprise and then heading to NXT for the time being.
Candice is just the start of a list of names that I think could be making their presence felt in two weeks time in Philly at the Royal Rumble.
