A former WWE Intercontinental Champion is heading to Houston, Texas for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
PWInsider is reporting, via multiple sources, that Santino Marella will be in town for the pay-per-view.
I have not heard anything on him making any autograph appearances in the area so that could mean that he will be one of the surprise entrants for the Men's Rumble match. He could also be in town to film material for the WWE Network since WWE tends to film content on the weekend of their biggest shows.
Since his departure from WWE a few years ago, Marella has made some appearances for the company, including a stint as a guest coach at the Performance Center in Orlando and there has been talk of launching an NXT Canada brand with Marella being discussed as a name to run the facility.
