A rumor killer has reportedly emerged on a photo doing the rounds seemingly leaking the line-up of the men’s Royal Rumble match.
The viral ‘leak’ shows off a document, appearing to reveal Royal Rumble entrance numbers, time in the Rumble, and plans for eliminations. Per the sheet, WWE plans for AJ Styles to win the bout, last eliminating Riddle. Alberto Del Rio’s name also featured in the ‘leak’ as a surprise return.
A number of fans quickly theorised that the document was bogus, especially after reports that WWE hasn’t reached out to the star. Ringside News – which has had several backstage reports recently confirmed by the likes of Fightful and Dave Meltzer – now reports that a tenured member of the WWE creative team has called the graphic ‘complete bulls**t’.
You can view the graphic below:
The #RoyalRumble always brings a few "leaks" with it that are not legit. We have been able to confirm that this one is "100% bullsh*t."
