However, there is still plenty of space for surprises.
11 of the 30 spots for the men's Royal Rumble have been filled up, while 17 of the 30 spots in the women's Royal Rumble have been allocated, but there is still plenty of room for some surprise returns in both matches when the show takes place at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on January 28. Raw GM Kurt Angle was backstage on the phone with someone who he said would be a great addition to the women's Royal Rumble match as a former standout women's competitor. Whilst Molly did walk away from WWE back in 2005, she did return for one night only to compete in the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania Women's battle royale, which was later won by Santina Marella.
This year's WWE Royal Rumble is set to not only be one of the most memorable in history, it's going to be one of the most historic.
Another name contacted, but not confirmed, is Michelle McCool.
With a little bit less than three weeks to go, these probably aren't the last former women's champions that you will be hearing rumors about concerning an appearance in the first-ever women's Royal Rumble.
McCool has not wrestled for the company since losing a "Loser Leaves WWE" match to Layla at Extreme Rules in May of 2011. The women's Rumble is set to consist of 30 competitors, just like the men's, but there aren't 30 females now on the main roster.
According to PWInsider's elite's audio, it seems that WWE has already confirmed the first female legend for the upcoming Royal Rumble.
