WWE Royal Rumble 2014: Wade Barrett offers up Rumble spot for top secret legend

See also

WWE superstar Wade Barrett stirred the internet wrestling rumor pot yesterday with a provocative tweet that has legitimate repercussion on tomorrow's highly anticipated Royal Rumble pay per view.

Barrett was scheduled to compete in the annual 30-man over-the-top-rope Royal Rumble match tomorrow night live on pay per view from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This week Barrett was inexplicably removed from the list of competitors for the match on wwe.com.

I've given up my spot in this year's #RoyalRumble to make way for a WWE legend. It's top secret, but just between us, here's a clue: Voodoo.-@WadeBarrett

Currently WWE has 20 superstars announced to compete in the Royal Rumble, which leaves a third of the match mystery. Pro Wrestling Examiner did some sleuthing and found 10 possible WWE stars who could make game-changing returns in this year's Rumble, read that list here.

Pro Wrestling Examiner's Perspective: So with this tweet, Barrett leaves the fray of the Rumble but who is taking his place? This Examiner has clear idea who the clue is referring to, but it would be more interesting to see who you think it might be. Tweet your guesses to Pro Wrestling Examiner @KevKellam or post a guess in the comment box at the bottom this page.
