intercontinental champion

The annual Royal Rumble pay-per-view is set to air live on the WWE Network on Sunday night, and as usual fans are expecting to see a few surprise entrants in the Royal Rumble matches.

Each and every year it’s rumored that former WWE Intercontinental Champion Carlito could be making an appearance at the Rumble, but so far those rumors have yet to come to fruition.

Carlito recently took to Twitter to get ahead of the rumors, and he indicated that he won’t be appearing at the event on Sunday.

The former WWE star noted that he’s not currently featured in the alumni section on, and said that should clear things up for fans who are expecting to see him at Chase Field.
