Report: Update On NXT Wrestlers Being In The WWE Royal Rumble

Will any developmental talents be in action?

Plenty of surprises are reportedly scheduled for Saturday's Royal Rumble pay-per-view and WWE have already revealed some of the bigger names who will enter the Women's Rumble, with the likes of Lita, The Bella Twins and Michelle McCool set to be in the match.

No NXT talents have been announced for either Rumble only one day away from the show, although recent reports have noted both Bron Breakker and Gunther will be in St. Louis for the event.

In an update, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted Breakker and Gunther will be in St. Louis, as will several female NXT talents. However, there is no guarantee they will be in either Rumble, with it being likely they were only instructed to be in the area in case any scheduled performers become ill ahead of the show. 

NXT talents have appeared in Rumble matches in the past, with Tye Dillinger (now Shawn Spears), Adam Cole, Pete Dunne and Candice LeRae having memorable appearances at past pay-per-views.
