Every Surprise Entrant In The 2020 Royal Rumble Matches

The 2020 Royal Rumble matches had more than their fair share of surprise entrants. Stars from the past and stars from NXT took part in both the men’s and women’s Rumble matches with some very notable names popping up. Here we will provide a breakdown of which surprise entrants showed up, when they showed up and who eliminated them.

Women’s Royal Rumble Match:

  • Bianca Belair #2 – Eliminated by Charlotte Flair
  • Mighty Molly #3 – Eliminated by Bianca Belair
  • Mercedes Martinez #6 – Eliminated by Sonya Deville & Mandy Rose
  • Candice LeRae #9 – Eliminated by Bianca Belair
  • Mia Yim #12 – Eliminated by Alexa Bliss
