Of course people will complain that Nash can’t work etc. etc……but he’s one of the best mic guys to this day and can help get stories over without a doubt, and is also in the best shape of his career. We’ve also heard an unconfirmed rumor that Nash has dyed his hair black, leading to rumors of him reviving his “Diesel” character which he worked as during his initial WWE run in the 90’s. I personally don’t think a Diesel is happening, but rather that Nash is trying to bring back a younger look to fit in with the younger WWE if he did indeed dye his hair.
Rumors on Booker T’s return have been on and off for about a year now, but it looks like it’s finally happening this time. Booker cancelled some appearances he had going on this weekend which started the rumors, and now we know the reason why as he is also set to return in the Rumble. Booker has been away from WWE for a few years now, so he’s coming in fresh, but it will be interesting to see how WWE uses him.
So with this big news going down, the hype is officially on the Rumble. It will be interesting to see WWE debut the first ever 40 man Royal Rumble, and it looks like we know 36 of the 40 counting Kevin Nash and Booker T.
