Kaitlyn has not wrestled for WWE since the 2018 Mae Young Classic, but she did appear in a RAW Reunion segment on July 22, 2019. She hasn’t done much in pro wrestling since WWE released her in January 2014. She announced her retirement a few months after the release.
WWE Hall of Famers JBL, Jerry Lawler and Ivory are also in town. We reported before that WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle was going to be in town as WWE has discussed possibly bringing him back to the company, and PWInsider has confirmed that he is also in St. Louis this weekend.
It’s likely that Lawler and JBL will be on the Royal Rumble Kickoff pre-show tomorrow night, but that has not been confirmed. There’s no word yet on why Ivory is in town. She has not wrestled since the WWE Evolution Battle Royal in October 2018, the same year she was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
It’s very likely that WWE is bringing several former talents in to St. Louis to serve as potential Rumble entrant replacements, especially with potential changes due to COVID-19. Some are also filming for various WWE documentaries and projects while in town this weekend.
As we’ve noted, some of the rumored and/or planned names going around for The Rumble this weekend are Aksana, Angle, Cameron, Melina, Shane McMahon, rapper Bad Bunny, Asuka, Kairi Sane, and Ronda Rousey. There will also be some WWE NXT Superstars in town for the event, including NXT Champion Bron Breakker, Gunther and Raquel Gonzalez, among others.
