The WWE Royal Rumble is always a massive event and the inclusion of 30 WWE Superstars always leaves room for entrants either returning to the WWE or showing up for one final shot at gaining WWE glory and main eventing WrestleMania. The 2014 Royal Rumble has offered very few hints as to what possible Superstars from wrestling past could show up, but the possibility of inactive WWE Superstars returning at the event is higher than usual. Here are four WWE Superstars in Mattel WWE form ready to make a big splash and come back.
Mattel WWE Elite 25 Sheamus!
WWE Superstar Sheamus has been inactive since the fall, out with an injury and missing out on the entire authority resistance, WWE World Heavyweight Championship unification and more changes to the landscape of the WWE Universe. Sheamus’ red hair is on fire in this Mattel WWE Elite 25 figure, complete with removable silver chain, Celtic Cross shirt, and silver knee pads, boots and trunks. Sheamus could easily show up at the 2014 Royal Rumble and go on to main event WrestleMania. He is the most likely candidate as he has been absent for the longest amount of time.
Mattel WWE Series 38 Chris Jericho!
Chris Jericho has been absent for a long time, but his presence is still felt and he is constantly asked in his life on the road with his band Fozzy about a potential WWE return. Since he surprised everyone at the 2013 Royal Rumble (which this Mattel WWE Series 38 figure is based on the time directly after), it would come as another shock to the WWE Universe for him to do the same thing two years in a row. He is another candidate to face the WWE World Heavyweight Champion due to his experience both at WrestleMania, and making Royal Rumble returns.
Mattel WWE Series 36 Christian!
Captain Charisma has been plagued with bad luck and injuries since finally becoming a World Champion in 2011. His latest injury was a recurrent concussion, causing all sorts of terrible symptoms and worrying the WWE doctors as to his safety. He showed up in the WWE at the Slammy Awards, letting the WWE Universe know he had new inspiration as a proud father. He could easily take the inspiration to survive in the Royal Rumble and go on to by the WWE World Heavyweight Champion and cementing his place in WWE history forever. His latest Mattel WWE Series 36 figure includes green tights and has a determined, angry headsculpt reminiscent of his World Heavyweight Championship run.
Rob Van Dam has been the life of the WWE party since returning at the 2013 Money In The Bank. He has fought for World Champion gold and showed that he can be a contender. No stranger to surprise Royal Rumble entrances, The Whole F’n Show could make another ‘one of a kind’ appearance in the 2014 Royal Rumble. His Mattel WWE Elite 27 has yet to be revealed, but when it is, it will invoke as much as a surprise as a Royal Rumble 2014 return would.

There are now proto images of the Mattel WWE Series 38 wrestling action figures! This hotly anticipated set features some of the WWE’s most sought after full time and part time Superstars in all of their plastic glory. The set includes:
Mattel WWE Series 38 Chris Jericho!
The Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla Chris Jericho gets a brand new headsculpt this time around! His purple trunks and boots represent his modern day color scheme and though he may be taking a break from the WWE to focus on other projects, anytime he returns the crowd goes wild!
Mattel WWE Series 38 Dolph Ziggler!
Well known for having one of the best physiques in WWE, Dolph Ziggler’s latest from Mattel captures that perfectly. With a winningly mischievous smile and washboard abs, Ziggler is an athletic force to be reckoned with. His white boots and pink trunks make up the rest of his unique style.
Mattel WWE Series 38 Vickie Guerrero!
Vickie Guerrero has always been a highly demanded Mattel WWE action figure so it is no surprise she is again being released in another set. Perfect for wrestling figure fans to use as an authority figure for play, she includes her ‘Cougar’ necklace and black and gold shirt and shiny boots.
Mattel WWE Series 38 Sheamus!
Sheamus has been absent from WWE for some time due to an injury, but he remains a fan favorite amongst the younger crowd and could return at any time to surprise everyone. His figures haven’t changed much since his Mattel WWE debut but this comes with a silver and orange scheme for those who are keeping track of the Irish fighter’s different styles.
The Miz in Mattel WWE Series 38!
The most must-see WWE Superstar of all time, The Miz, makes his way back into the figure lineup with a standard look in black and gold but including an updated head scan. Trying his hand at commentary, The Miz looks to continue making an impact on the WWE scene.
Mattel WWE Series 38 Kofi Kingston!
Kofi Kingston has since changed his look and style to sport long tights as opposed to short trunks. The move has translated well to his first Mattel WWE figure of the type, showcasing a green and black scheme with his new logo in the very front. Kofi Kingston’s high energy, roundabout style takes him to new heights every single time he steps into the ring, now with a new appearance.

The Mattel WWE Series 38 wrestling action figures are now available for PRE-ORDER at WrestlingFigures.com! While we can only speculate as to what they will look like right now, the set will include:
Sheamus has yet to return to the WWE, but speculation around Royal Rumble 2014 proves that anything is possible. Whether or not he will debut a new attire on television remains to be seen, but this release will most likely see standard Sheamus attire.
While taking a leave of absence from WWE, Chris Jericho works on other projects like a new podcast and his successful rock band, Fozzy. Fans were disappointed that Jericho’s new tattoo has not been featured on his wrestling action figures due to cross licensing issues. It is no telling, however, as to when or if Mattel works cross licensing issues out, so while there is usually no chance, Jerichoholics continue to speculate.
Dolph Ziggler has suffered from concussions recently and it has taken a toll on his career, bringing his leaps forward to a screeching halt. However, he remains a fan favorite and someone that die-hard wrestling enthusiasts wait to savor a big moment along with. This figure will most likely feature one of his colorful, elaborate, and very form fitting, wrestling trunk designs.
The Miz is a former World Champion and remains a mainstay on the WWE roster. Though he is not currently in title contention, he hopes to rekindle some contender fire at Royal Rumble 2014 and after changing facial hair styles, will probably have a newer look than his previous Mattel WWE basic series figures.
Kofi Kingston has sported long tights as of late when hopping into the squared circle and while it is too early to tell, it is entirely possible this Mattel WWE Series 38 Kofi Kingston figure will feature his new look and new attitude.
Vickie Guerrero has been sparsely seen since being drafted to Smackdown but she still makes an immediate presence felt when her trademark voice rings out in any arena around the world. Already having two Mattel WWE figures, the demand for an authority will keep Vickie Guerrero a hot commodity amongst wrestling figure collectors for years to come.
