As was announced last week by WWE, the 2017 Royal Rumble event will be held in San Antonio, Texas at the Alamodome, and this marks the return of the Royal Rumble to the venue after 20 years.

Texas is home to various big stars in wrestling history, and per Cageside Seats, WWE are planning on bringing in the big guns to try and make the event a success.

Stone Cold Steve Austin, Undertaker and Shawn Michaels are three names being tossed around to make special appearances at the event, albeit in potentially small, non-wrestling roles.

The most interesting would be Undertaker, who we have not seen or heard from since Wrestlemania 32, and rumours have been swirling that he has retired from in-ring competition.

If they could pull it off, it would be a great attraction and all three would be sure to receive a huge ovation from their home state fans.
