According to PWInsider, at least two NXT 2.0 Superstars could be part of this year's Men's Royal Rumble match. It's said that current NXT Champion Bron Breakker and Gunther (previously known as WALTER in NXT UK) are being flown to St. Louis so they're in attendance for the PPV.
It's not confirmed that they'll be part of the match, but it would make sense. Vince McMahon is clearly in the process of repackaging Gunther for a potential main roster run, while it's no secret he views Breakker as someone who could main event a WrestleMania one day. Putting them in the Royal Rumble match would bring a lot of new eyes to them and possible NXT 2.0 as well.
Earlier this week, we learned that The Undertaker is also heading to St. Louis, though we're not anticipating him being in the match now he's retired from in-ring competition.
