Jan 27, 2022 - by Marc Middleton

Shane McMahon is reportedly returning to WWE at the Royal Rumble.

McMahon has been away from WWE for almost one year now, but Ringside News reports that he is scheduled for Saturday’s 30-Man Royal Rumble Match.

There is no word on if McMahon is back for WrestleMania 38 Season, but we will keep you updated.

McMahon has not wrestled since losing the Steel Cage Match to Braun Strowman at WrestleMania 37. Before that, he had been away since losing the Career vs. Career Ladder Match to Kevin Owens on the October 4 SmackDown episode, which was the FOX premiere.

As noted earlier today, there are also plans for rapper Bad Bunny to work the 30-Man Rumble Match on Saturday.

There are currently 22 announced spots for the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match. The announced line-up looks like this: Johnny Knoxville, Austin Theory, Rey Mysterio, Dominik Mysterio, Montez Ford, Angelo Dawkins, Sheamus, WWE United States Champion Damian Priest, AJ Styles, Big E, Kofi Kingston, Sami Zayn, Madcap Moss, Happy Baron Corbin, Kevin Owens, Omos, Dolph Ziggler, Robert Roode, Randy Orton, Riddle, RAW Tag Team Champion Otis, RAW Tag Team Champion Chad Gable.
