Michelle McCool ended up being the one legend in this year’s Royal Rumble match. A match that did have a few other surprises including the WWE returns of Chelsea Green and Nia Jax. Natalya, Shotzi, Asuka, and Piper Niven also returned from their absences as well.
Prior to the Royal Rumble event, McCool commented on her social media that she did not receive a call this year despite the show being in her home state. She took to her social media today to thank the WWE Universe for her appearance. She states that because of the comments from the fans within the last two weeks she did get the call. It was nine days prior to the Rumble which was indeed after she said she did not receive a call.
McCool’s entrance was unique as she was in the front row watching the show with her family. She would enter the Rumble from there and would immediately start the fight with Tamina at ringside. She lasted nearly 14 minutes and eliminated Tamina and also helped with the Nia Jax elimination. McCool was eliminated by Rhea Ripley.
The former four-time champion has appeared in two prior Rumbles. The inaugural one was in 2018 and the other in 2022. She has had eight eliminations between all three appearances.
