“With the Raw 30th anniversary program turning up this evening, the huge subject of conversation was, should the WWE have revealed an individual in the Royal Rumble or left it as a surprise? All week individuals have actually been talking about, need to they have actually revealed Cody Rhodes returning for the Royal Rumble, specifically after that wonderful video plan that they revealed recently. Everyone’s been back and forth– ‘Yes, they ought to have!’ ‘No, they should not!'”

“My viewpoint? Due to the fact that he’s been provided as a substantial star and he is over huge time with that audience, it was an excellent relocation to promote Cody Rhodes returning for the Royal Rumble. And yes, everyone states, ‘Well, you wish to keep back for a huge surprise.’ I make sure there’s going to be surprises in the Royal Rumble, you do not desire a lot of surprises due to the fact that then it eclipses other surprises. Cody Rhodes revealed for the Royal Rumble: great relocation in my viewpoint.”
